Pineapple Hospitality is a rapidly expanding boutique hotel management company. We are looking for team members who are all about providing outstanding guest service--this is hospitality after all. We're fun, a little quirky, and always striving to get better (that's where you come in). Currently we have eight hotels in four states, with plans to continue growing. If you want to be part of a far-from-stuffy company with lots of opportunities, this may be the place for you.

Who We're Looking For:

HOST FOR THE ATWOOD AT THE ALISE CHICAGO

Are you the Host/Hostess with the most/mostest? We're looking for someone who is naturally friendly, outgoing and personable because you are the first face our guests see when they come into the restaurant. Our Host is responsible for ensuring an excellent dining experience by delivering prompt, courteous and professional service.

What You Bring:

Friendly faces wanted. We are looking to you to set the table (so to speak) for a wonderful dining experience by warmly greeting everyone who walks through the door. We are looking for someone who can effectively interact with guests (as well as your own team members) and has a passion for customer service. Here's what a typical shift may entail:

Promptly seating guests according to section and providing them with menus.

Communicating effectively with guests and answering questions regarding menu items, specials and beverages.

Receiving and accurately recording reservations by phone or in person.

Proactively supporting the restaurant team while monitoring dining room activity.

When You're Here:

Sometimes you'll be behind the host/hostess stand, but also be prepared to move around because any of the following actions may be required: standing/sitting, carrying/lifting up to 25 pounds, walking, bending/twisting, climbing stairs and more. You also must be able to accommodate varying schedules including nights, weekends and holidays. But wait, there's a great upside: in exchange for your flexibility we offer excellent pay, hotel discounts, F&B discounts and the opportunity to be part of an anything-but-standard growing hotel company.

We carry orders for multiple restaurants & have been in the business for 8 years, even before all the "big boys" decided to jump in to our space.

We have a solid veteran crew that handles our current volume quite well. But we have about a half-dozen new clients restaurants in the pipe & need to bring in more quality talent to keep up with our new incoming order flow.

Are YOU that quality talent?

We have 1 full time & 6 part time spots available to fill in order to meet the demand of the new order flow we're about to engage in February & March.

To qualify, you need:

  • Reliable insured vehicle
  • Ability to keep your committed shifts

  • Positive Attitude
  • Ability to work both independently AND as part of a team
  • Smart phone with unlimited text/data package

Our next orientation will be Thursday, February 1st at 2:30 PM at our office located in downtown Chicago.

Please respond with your name, phone number, & why you stand out as a good choice for us to welcome you in to our family.

 Pineapple Hospitality is a rapidly expanding boutique hotel management company. We are looking for team members who are all about providing outstanding guest service—this is hospitality after all. We’re fun, a little quirky, and always striving to get better (that’s where you come in). Currently we have eight hotels in four states, with plans to continue growing. If you want to be part of a far-from-stuffy company with lots of opportunities, this may be the place for you.

Who We’re Looking For:NIGHT AUDITOR FOR THE ALISE CHICAGO IN CHICAGO, IL. Creating an unforgettable hotel experience is not a 9-to-5 job. For us, impeccable service never sleeps, so we hope you’re a night owl. As Night Auditor you are responsible for maintaining our lofty guest standards overnight and ensuring the property is safe and secure as well. 

What You Bring: It may be dark out, but nighttime is when you shine. The front desk is yours so get ready to wear a lot of hats. From check-in to check-out and everything in between, you’re the person our guests will be looking to (and with late arrivals they may be cranky so a positive attitude is a must). Here are a few of the other tasks that will keep you busy on a nightly basis:

  1. Completing front desk duties including check-ins/outs, room scheduling, room moves, late checkouts, stay-overs and other requests from guests.
  2. Completing group pre-registrations and blocking room reservations, as well as pre-registering VIPs. 
  3. Maintaining knowledge of current hotel rates, sales strategies, current special rates and types and locations of available rooms.
  4. Balancing paperwork, cash drawer, deposits, reconciling credit cards and submitting batches. 

Where You’ve Been:We’re looking for someone with an Associates Degree (or equivalent) from a two-year college or technical school or six months to one year of related experience. But most importantly you must be a people-person! You will need to interact with all hotel guests and team members in a polite and positive way at all times, fulfilling requests (even dumb ones) in a timely manner. If you don't work well under pressure, this won’t be a great fit. A working knowledge of Microsoft Windows and Office as well as Opera PMS is preferred.
When You’re Here:Sometimes you’ll be behind the desk—but also be prepared to move around because more than half of the time you will be standing/sitting, carrying/lifting up to 50 pounds, walking, bending/twisting, climbing stairs and more. You also must be able to accommodate varying schedules including nights, weekends and holidays. But wait, there’s a great upside: in exchange for your flexibility we offer excellent pay, hotel discounts, F&B discounts and the opportunity to be part of an anything-but-standard growing hotel company.

Leghorns are a heritage breed of chicken that first came to the United States in the mid-19th century and are named after the Italian town of Livorno in Tuscany. Due to their prolific capacity to lay eggs, they became the overworked stalwart of the vast commercial egg industry.

Up until recently, due to pervasive cross-breeding and their primary use in the industrial agriculture business, they were listed on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) as "Critical." However, thanks to the efforts of a few dedicated farmers to restore the breed, the remaining non-industrial Leghorn chickens are raised on small farms across the country and are listed by the ALBC as "Recovering." At Leghorn Chicken, we believe the small steps and passions of a few can benefit all.

We’re the Field School for Environmental Organizing

Are you determined to make the biggest positive impact you can on issues like climate change and clean water, but you don’t know where to start? Green Corps offers a year-long paid training program that will prepare you for a career in environmental organizing. Here’s how it works:

Learn Skills from Environmental Leaders

You’ll participate in eight weeks of intensive classroom training conducted by environmental organizers and leaders from a wide range of organizations and campaigns, such as Bill McKibben of 350.org and Jane Kleeb of Bold Nebraska.

Our staff and trainers present overviews on the biggest issues facing our environment, as well as more specific trainings on proven organizing tactics, including volunteer recruitment, campaign planning, public speaking and much more. You’ll learn how to build organizations and run campaigns that inspire the public and political support needed to save our planet.

Hands-On Experience on Real Campaigns

The bulk of your training will come through hands-on experience working on behalf of organizations such as The Wilderness Society and Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project. You will use the skills you learn in your classroom training to work on some of the most pressing issues of the day.

Over the course of the year, you’ll lead three to five different campaigns in communities across the country. By working with several different campaign partners, you’ll gain experience tackling a diversity of issues and working in a variety of communities.

For example, last year four organizers worked on behalf of The Wilderness Society to defend bedrock conservation laws from being repealed, developing more than 40 volunteer leaders to continue the campaigns going forward. Another Green Corps team worked with Bold Alliance ( a multi-state expansion of Bold Nebraska) to oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline, mobilizing 200 Iowans from across the state to rally against the pipeline.

 

Launch Your Organizing Career

After completing the training program, you will be connected to groups looking to hire full-time staff. Our alumni are at work today on everything from overseeing program work for Sierra Club, to promoting rainforest protection on a global scale, to protecting local places from Lake Tahoe to Appalachian forests. Due to Green Corps’ rigorous training program and the great need for trained organizers in many social change organizations, Green Corps organizers are often able to find professional positions immediately after completing the program.

Location and Compensation

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,500. Green Corps also offers a competitive benefits package and opportunities for advancement.

Green Corps organizers go where the fight is and wherever they can make the biggest impact. They could work on campaigns almost anywhere in the country and while location preferences are considered for placements, we require all organizers to be geographically flexible.

Green Corps is part of The Public Interest Network—a group of organizations that share a vision of a better future, a set of core values, and a strategic approach to getting things done. Visit publicinterestnetwork.org to learn more.

Green Corps is an equal opportunity employer and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.

BENEFITS

Green Corps also offers a competitive benefits package and opportunities for advancement.

If you feel you meet the below requirements, are a team player, experienced, passionate, and dedicated to your craft, we want to hear from you!

* Positive, Personable, and Open-minded. As we all work closely together, we always want to bring positive energy to the group.

* Hard-working and Self-motivated. There may not be supervision or direction available at all times, so we expect you to maintain high standards for yourself without needing to be told.

* Punctual and Responsible. We hold each other accountable to follow through on all commitments with a sense of urgency.

* Hospitable: We are known for exceptional customer service in all of our pursuits, and it is your job to uphold these high standards, and to find ways to go above and beyond the client's expectations.

* Professional Communication. It is important to clearly, politely, directly and effectively communicate with your staff, fellow managers, corporate management, and guests.

* Ambition and Self Awareness. We look for employees who know their self-worth and are excited about their career day in and day out. It is important to continually push yourself forward by constantly learning, seeking to improve, and never resting on your laurels. It is also important that you are able to receive feedback--both positive and constructive criticism--in order to succeed, grow, and develop within your roll and continue to move forward within the company.

* Accountability and Consistency. It is important to be accountable for your actions and to hold others accountable for theirs. As a manager, you lead by example, and being punctual, responsible, and consistent with your work ethic and personality will ensure success for you and your team.

* Ambassador of BRG. Perhaps most importantly, we expect all staff of Boka Restaurant Group, regardless of position, to be professional, courteous, and respectful of all other restaurants in the industry.
