Hiring blitz: Parq Vancouver to fill over 1,000 positions for fall 2017 opening

If you’re in the market for a job, Parq Vancouver is hiring in a big way.

The largest private development in B.C. is set to open next to BC Place in the fall of 2017, which means there isn’t much time left to fully staff the Parq Vancouver casino, as well as its two luxury hotels and eight restaurants and lounges, including a fine dining Chinese restaurant, a whisky and tea lounge, an artisan coffee bar, a cocktail lounge with an outdoor terrace, and a bar in the casino. A major operation like that calls for another major operation just to gather the appropriate personnel.

Seeking to fill over 1,000 positions, Parq Vancouver has announced four job fairs through the summer to be held outside BC Place at Gate H.

According to a release, positions to be filled include casino cage cashiers, dealers, security officers, pastry chefs, cooks, servers, bartenders, restaurant managers, guest service representatives, concierges, room attendants, spa employees, and switchboard operators.

The dates for the four job fairs are as follows:

Wednesday, June 21
11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday, July 15
11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Monday, July 17
12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Wednesday, August 2
1 p.m. – 6 p.m.
