About This Job

You’re like magic. You transform empty spaces into settings; and after the event, you make them disappear.  You’re happiest juggling at a fast-pace, with a passion to please that equals the need for getting it right. Your sharp eye for detail quickly spots when something’s amiss and when guests have need. A valued team member who smoothly handles the difficult and unexpected, you “get” that your contribution is vital to the event’s success.  If you’re up for a challenging, physical role where your relationship skills can develop and shine, consider Interstate’s Banquet Lead Houseperson position.

Ensure supplies are available according to the Banquet Event Order and equipment is set up and functioning properly. Periodically tidy the space, clearing away dishes, straightening furnishings, and refreshing soiled linen throughout the event.
  • Keep track of event supplies, equipment and carefully store furnishings when not in use, promptly reporting repair and maintenance needs.
  • Pitch in to help with banquet service and attend to guest needs and special requests with prompt “can-do” courtesy.
