Sunriver Resort is hiring for the summer season and offering a new starting wage of $25 per hour for the housekeeping positions it needs to fill.
The resort is also hiring for other part and full-time seasonal positions including culinary and marina staff, golf services and shop attendants, greenskeepers, guest services, spa service providers, pool and recreation ambassadors, lifeguards, food and beverage, administration, management and more.
“We are taking a very progressive and you might even say aggressive approach to this,” said General Manager Tom O’Shea. “We want to take care of our guests. We know that they are going to be here this year and we want to give them a great experience. So we are trying this to see if we can acquire the number of employees that we need to service not only housekeeping but all of our amenities here.”
With the planned Memorial Day weekend opening of the newly expanded Cove Aquatic Center, lifeguards, front desk, food service and culinary staff are also needed to operate this new resort amenity.
“We are looking for candidates who thrive in a team environment and who have a passion for delivering high quality guest experiences—no matter what department they’re working in,” said Lindsay Borkowski, Sunriver Resort director of sales and marketing. “By offering competitive wages and other employment perks, we hope to attract and retain top talent across a variety of positions who will help our guests create lifelong memories with family and friends every time they visit Sunriver Resort.”
The resort is accepting online applications for the 200 part-time and full-time seasonal positions it has open that suit a variety of interests and offer both indoor and outdoor employment.
But it’s the housekeeping position the resort is holding in higher regard.
“You can run a restaurant 4 days or 7 days a week but you can’t clean a room 50%,” O’Shea said. “You have to clean it 100%. Nothing happens until somebody sells and we actually check the customer in and that’s why this position is so important.”
An in-person hiring fair will take place Wednesday, May 12 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. outdoors in the Great Hall Courtyard at Sunriver Resort.
Candidates attending the hiring fair are encouraged to complete an application online in advance, as well as bring a copy of their resume to the event.
Hiring will be done on the spot, and not all positions require candidates to have previous experience. Applicants must be age 15+ to work at Sunriver Resort.
Competitive wages are just one of the many perks offered to Sunriver Resort employees.
Being part of the team may also include complimentary golf and bicycle rentals for employees and their immediate family, discount fitness club membership to Sage Springs Club and Spa, and discounts at Sunriver Resort restaurants and retail outlets.
