About This Job


Do you think physical work is more fun than sitting at a desk? Do you enjoy completing a task from beginning to end? If so, we would love to talk to you about joining our banquet houseperson team!

We offer excellent benefits, including paid time off, free meals, hotel discounts, and more! Full time associates are eligible for medical/dental/vision, company-paid life insurance, long-term and short-term disability, and a matching 401k. Ask about our insurance plan for part-time associates!

What you will be doing: Before events, you will set up all meeting rooms to the specifications of the client. This includes considerable physical activity in transporting awkward and heavy materials such as staging, tables, chairs, dancefloors, etc., from storage area to meeting rooms. During events, you will replenish meeting rooms with clean glasses and fresh water. After events, you will break down meeting rooms and return to items to storage or reset for the next function. Banquet housepersons also maintain an established cleaning schedule of meeting rooms and ballrooms so the rooms stay presentable at all times.

What you should bring to the table: You should have the ability to communicate in English and read banquet event orders, floor plans, and task lists. You should have a can-do attitude and be willing to “pitch-in” and help co-workers with their job duties as a team player. Knowledge of various types of equipment and set up styles used in the meeting rooms is helpful. For example: different table types (round, classroom, etc.). The ability to lift and move multiple tables and chairs and podiums weighing up to 100 lbs. through a crowded room is important. This position requires considerable physical activity on a continuous basis throughout the shift for room set up and break down.

When you will be working: We will consider full-time, part-time, and on-call hires. Banquet events are frequently on night and weekends, but the hotel hosts groups every day of the week and all hours of the day. Overnight work is occasionally necessary during busy times. Please complete the availability form before you submit your application.
