Grand Traverse Resort and Spa Hosts Drive-Thru Career Fair

Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is looking to grow its workforce. The Resort is hosting a special drive-thru career fair on Thursday, April 29, to find qualified candidates to fill positions in departments such as the spa, culinary service, housekeeping, reservations, retail, and more.

“If you are looking for a job that you will love going to every day, look no further than the Resort,” says Matthew McClellan, Director of Human Resources. “The Resort offers competitive wages and benefits plus incredible employee perks.” The April 29 drive-thru career fair will give prospective employees a chance to meet safely with human resources personnel and department managers, with the opportunity to receive a job offer on the spot. McClellan says there are more than 100 hourly and salaried positions available. “There’s so much opportunity at the Resort,” he says. “Our goal is to create a career that you will love for a long time. We have employees who have been with us for ten, twenty, and even forty years. That is unheard of in the hospitality industry.”

During the drive-thru career fair, applications will stay in their vehicle while applying for open positions. The drive-thru process allows for interviews in an outdoor setting with proper social distancing. Face masks are also required. Prospective employees are encouraged to complete an online application beforehand and bring a resume to the career fair. You can also email your resume to humanresources@gtresort.com ahead of time for human resources to print off.  Job offers could be offered on the spot. Those who accept a job during the career fair will be offered a signing bonus and welcome gift. Other day-of bonuses include a one-year Health Club membership, free lunch on your first day of work, and entry into a raffle for a two-night stay at the Resort or two rounds of golf with a golf cart.

All employees are eligible for discounts on Resort amenities, including golf, spa services and dining, access to the Health Club, involvement in employee committees, and leadership opportunities. Full-time employees are eligible for health coverage, retirement plans, and other benefits. The drive-thru career fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in the Spa/Health Club parking lot. To learn more about the job fair, contact Jan Sickle-Witte in the human resources department at 231-534-6508 or humanresources@gtresort.com.
