The Holman Grand, Charlottetown
Jobs: Guest Services Agent, Night Auditor, Server, Host, Cook, Housekeeper, Retail Associate, Custodian
The hotel has 80 guest rooms and suites in downtown Charlottetown, as well as Redwater Rustic Grille Restaurant, Grand Senses Spa, fitness centre, pool and hot tub, and banquet space.
“In the last few years, we have had a very stable number of people working for us,” says Joshua Hooper.
Ten staff work on the front desk, which is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are 20 to 30 in housekeeping, 20 more working in the restaurant, and 20 at the spa.
“We are hiring a few more people for the summer, including students, but we look mostly for people willing to work year-round. One of the best things about working for the Holman Grand is that we are busy year-round.
“The most challenging position to fill is the Guest Services agent who works at the front desk. They must be able to fit in well with our employees, interact with visitors and guests, be able to multitask in a busy environment, and be a self-starter who is willing to help in other areas around the hotel during quieter times.”
