Help wanted: Four Seasons Philadelphia to hold job fair to hire 500+

The much-awaited Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Technology Center is looking to fill over 500 jobs as it prepares for its summer opening.

The 219-room hotel will hold a two-day job fair on March 25 and 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 115 A-B at the Pennsylvania Convention Center to fulfill officials’ 2018 goal of adding over 500 jobs during a “big mass hire.”

The hotel on Monday, March 25, will accept applications for food and beverage, including restaurants, banquets, in-room dining and stewarding; on Tuesday, March 26, applications will be accepted for front desk, guest services, spa, housekeeping, administration, property operations and maintenance and all other departments.

Interested parties are asked to apply online and attend the job fair.

The company said employees will get competitive wages and full-time benefits, including medical, dental, vision, matching 401k program, paid time off and holidays, and complementary uniforms and meals.

Up to 60 new employees were added by August last year, just 10 percent of the overall number that will work atop Comcast’s second tower.

Four Seasons executives are looking for “the best talent in Philadelphia with the best hearts,” they said in an earlier interview with the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The $1.5 billion, 60-story skyscraper at 18th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard is being developed by Liberty Property Trust for Comcast, which is occupying the office portion of the tower.

The hotel will have a spa and numerous eateries, including a restaurant on the 59th floor from Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; a 60th-floor lounge by Vongerichten; Vernick Fish by Philadelphia James Beard Award winner Greg Vernick; and the now-open Vernick Coffee Bar.
