JOBS: Potawatomi set to hire nearly 250 to staff hotel
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — With the opening of Potawatomi’s 381-room hotel this fall, the business will hold two job fairs in its Expo Center from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, June 2; and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 14.
Nearly 250 positions, including those for door attendants, bell persons, front desk staff, hotel room attendants, valet, maintenance and food & beverage will be available to applicants. Onsite interviews and job offers may be extended at the event.
“We are looking to fill our hotel with team members who will extend the very best in service to our guests,” said Hotel Director Hassan Abdel-Moneim. “We will pride ourselves on the fabulous experiences our guests will receive when they stay with us. The 250 team members we hire to open the hotel will play a primary role in delivering those experiences.”
The hotel is expected to be operational in the late summer with a ceremonial grand opening in the early fall. The $150 million property will feature floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Milwaukee in each of its 381 rooms, a full-service casual restaurant, lobby bar, exercise area and more than 12,000 square feet of additional meeting space.
“The hotel redefines our business. It brings a brand new dynamic to the property, and top-notch guest service is what will bring us success,” said property General Manager Mike Goodrich. “Those who join our team at the hotel will play an important role as we welcome many who might be visiting our casino, or even Milwaukee, for the first time.”
Job fair participants need to be 18 years of age and are asked to apply for the position being sought online at http://www.paysbig.com/careers prior to the event. A Social Security Card and valid photo ID are required to attend.
Welcoming more than 6 million guests annually, Potawatomi is already one of the Milwaukee area’s largest employers with nearly 2,600 employees. The property is also one of the area’s most diverse employers with over 53 percent of our team being people of color.
