Help Wanted

Job openings, temporary or permanent, commercial or personal

Positions available onsite housing possible

We have two positions opening up within the next month.  Both are excellent opportunities for the right person(s):

1.  Front desk person handling guest check in's, reservation phone requests and misc. tasks to stay busy.  This person needs to be friendly and hospitality oriented with a strong emphasis on quality and meeting guest expectations.  There would be 3 shifts per week on weekend nights from 3-10 to start with.  Supplemental hours could be had by helping in our housekeeping department or with serving shifts in our restaurant.

2.  Full time line cook, mostly night shifts from 1-8 or 9 winter and 9 or 10 summer.  Busy restaurant environment with emphasis on cooking all meals from scratch.  Experienced preferred but we are willing to train someone with a strong desire to learn this craft.  

The apartment we have available will be opening up April 1st.  It is a 1 bedroom apartment with kitchen and full bath, small living room.  Sorry , no pets or children in the apartment.  It's possible a couple could fulfil the above roles and live in the apartment but we do require the occupant to manage any after hours issues that come up with guest.  In exchange for that (it's very easy we have very few after hours calls), you get reduced rent of $500 per month which includes the aparment (freshly remodelled), heat, electric, wifi, TV and verizon cel service all included.  In essence, you have not expenses.

Give us a call if interested in either or both positions.  A couple interesed in re-locating to the North Shore would be a perfect fit!
