Hotel Arras to hold Aug. 6 job fair

Press release from McKibbon Hospitality:

Kimpton Hotel Arras, owned and managed by McKibbon Hospitality, and Mandara Hospitality Group have announced a second multi-position job fair to be held Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Opening late-summer 2019, Kimpton Hotel Arras is an historic transformation of the former BB&T Bank building, Western North Carolina’s tallest building and an iconic fixture in the heart of downtown Asheville, into a 128-room boutique hotel that will serve as an extension of the eclectic creative community of the city. Asheville-based Mandara Hospitality Group will open two independent restaurants in the Kimpton Hotel Arras, Bargello and District 42. The management teams are hiring a range of positions—from bellperson, minibar attendants, housekeepers, maintenance tech and security guards to servers, bartenders and dining room managers, to name a few.

“We’re continuing to grow our local team with fun-loving individuals who are passionate about this community and looking for a work environment that’s equal parts work and play,” says David McCartney, Kimpton Hotel Arras general manager. “Every team member receives on-the-job training and development for career advancement, not to mention a competitive benefits package and endless opportunities for growth.”

As with the previous job fair, registration is not required to attend; attendees are encouraged to bring a resume and their best self, as managers will be conducting on-the-spot interviews and possible immediate hiring in addition to providing general information about the respective teams and job opportunities. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
