UPDATED Wednesday, March 21, 2018 — The job fair has been expanded. It was announced today that the job fair will continue two additional days. They are Tuesday, March 27, and Wednesday, March 28, 10 am to 6 pm at the Castaway.
The newly renovated Castaway in Burbank is holding a major job fair to fill 200-300 hundred jobs. The fair kicked off today Tuesday, March 20 and will be held also on Wednesday March 21 and Sunday March 25, from 10 am to 6 pm, at the Castaway location, 1250 East Harvard Road. The positions include servers, bartenders, food runners, hosts, prep cooks, line cooks, and stewards.
“New hires will gain hands-on training from the best and most talented group of restaurateurs in the industry while establishing their own careers for professional growth. Instead of Certified Trainers, Castaway will have a team of Certified Storytellers working to elevate employees to the next level of customer service. Staff joining the team will have the opportunity to contribute more than just what their title indicates. The valet staff will be trained on the restaurant’s culinary creations, the concierges will have countless stories to share about the property, its history, design and inspiration, and the servers will take guest engagement to a level of personalization not commonly found in this business,” according to a news release sent out by Lauren Newhouse, media representative at JS2 PR.
The Castaway, renowned for its stunning views and as a popular event venue, shut down last August for a multi-million dollar makeover. It’s due to reopen next month.
