February 11, 2010 --Slated for an April 1st grand opening, Loews Atlanta hotel is working to fill 250 jobs.
In the past two weeks, the luxury Midtown hotel has received between 8,000 and 10,000 applications.
Dale McDaniel, hotel general manager, said that is not unusual.
"It is not unusual to have 5,000 or so applications," he told the AJC. "But it is a sign of the times. A lot of people have been laid-off in the business."
The hospitality industry has been one of the hardest hit industries in the economic slump, McDaniel said. They are hoping things will rebound this year and in 2011.
For the next two weeks they will continue taking applications. They are looking for room attendants, cooks, a bell person and maintenance workers. A complete list of openings can be found at loewshoteljobs.com.
They will then start training their new hires for their spring opening.
