Monday, August 17th, 2009

ASHEVILLE, NC РEven in light of the economy’s recent downturn, The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa announced today that it has over 40 positions that will be filled over the next 30 days. The Resort has a variety of job openings available in hourly, salaried, and management positions in several departments including accounting, food and beverage, front desk, grounds, guest services, housekeeping, laundry, marketing, retail, and telecommunications.

“In the midst of tough economic times, we had limited filling any open positions,” states Rachel Monroe, Director of Human Resources at The Grove Park Inn. “However, over the past few months we have seen an increase in travel demand at our property, which has certainly encouraged us to be cautiously optimistic about the future. As a result, we are actively recruiting qualified individuals to fill these open positions and become part of The Grove Park Inn family.”
