Assistant Operations Manager, Restaurants
This is a full time, salaried role for someone passionate about food, wine, drinks, and hospitality in general.
Duties include working in all outlets for events and regular service, wine pairings at a high level at our Mount Julian restaurant, and assisting with operations throughout the resort.
During the summer months, this would be focused on the restaurants, overseeing a team of seasonal staff and ensuring standards are maintained, staff are fully trained, and working alongside others and on your own in the restaurants.
During the slower seasons, your focus would remain on planning and preparing in the restaurants, but during slow shifts, would be covering the front desk and restaurants, helping in admin and anywhere else as needed.
Due to the seasonal nature of Viamede, all staff find themselves doing maintenance projects throughout the winter. You don’t need to be passionate or experienced in carpentry, but you need to be willing to help out wherever needed.
Our ideal candidate would have past restaurant and hotel work, a passion for wines and drinks, and a desire to be part of a great hospitality team. As always, we hire people above resumes, but this requires you to show your best side in your application.
Please apply directly to Ben Samann at firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and cover letter that outlines your experience with wine and beer. Or, yanno, have fun with it.
Naturalist in Residence
$18 per hour, full time May to September
This is a new summer position that is open to 2 naturalists to help amuse, entertain, and delight our guests with the nature around us.
Over the years, we have found that guests have limited interest in participating in a lot of our organized programming, but love more spontaneous foraging tours, salamander searches, or direction on where to paddle. Your job would be to patrol the property, looking for ways to improve the guest experience.
You would fill your days with both planned and spontaneous guest interactions, general property wandering to find trash and organize recreational equipment, helping with the gardens to further natural landscaping, and working on nature-focused projects like building a bat house or planning an artistic display of pressed flowers. Taking pictures of your exploits and writing blog posts would be a welcome addition.
This is a seasonal, full time role, ideal for students on their summer break. Ideal programs include Ecosystems Management, Environmental Technician, Fish and Wildlife, and similar.
Please apply by email directly to Ben Samann, email@example.com. Have fun!
Apply year round! Full time hours are generally available Canada Day to Labour Day, with part time hours being available May to September.
Often, we move staff between areas – a front desk agent may be cross-trained in the Boathouse or as a Shift Supervisor, to fill gaps in their schedule and ours.
Front Desk Agents are responsible for answering phones, greeting guests, and generally coordinating all things resort-y. Skills needed include being friendly, organized and computer savvy. This role pays $18 per hour.
Boathouse Servers work in our busy dockside Boathouse restaurant. Serving experience isn’t required, but is helpful. Skills needed include being able to multitask, very friendly, and customer-service oriented. Please note that Viamede is a tip-free resort. This role pays $18 per hour.
Shift Supervisors are usually on their second or third summer at the resort. This job includes helping and training in all departments, including the front desk, Boathouse, Housekeeping, breakfast service, kids programming, grounds, maintenance, and anything else that comes their way. This position requires exceptional organizational skills and leadership, as well as customer service and an eye for detail. This role pays $18 per hour.
General Resort Staff do a bit of everything, depending on their interests and skills. This is a great entry-level position for countless young Stoney Lakers on summer break, and is a stepping stone to other positions. General Resort Staff serve breakfast, clean rooms, run kids programming, help in restaurants, and do just about anything else we need. This role pays $14.50-16 per hour.
Cooks and dishwashers help in all areas of the kitchen – the Boathouse, breakfast service, banquets and events. These range from junior dishwashers to senior sous chefs. This role pays $16-18 per hour.
