Dec 3, 2014
Austin Business Journal

More than 700 jobs need to be filled at the new JW Marriott Austin and a job fair will be held at the Austin Convention Center Dec. 5 and 6 to begin that process

Available positions include front desk jobs; housekeeping and laundry; restaurant, banquet and beverage service; security; engineering; and accounting

White Lodging Services Corp., which owns the new hotel, said employees at its other Austin hotels are welcome to apply for the new jobs

The JW Marriott Austin will open Feb. 13, 2015, making it the largest hotel in Austin with more than 1,000 rooms — at least until the Fairmont Austin opens in 2017. That hotel broke ground on the other side of the Austin Convention Center in November

Located at Second Street and Congress Avenue, the new Marriott will be the largest property in the JW Marriott collection in the U.S. and the second-largest in the world

Positions with the JW Marriott include a benefit package with access to health care insurance, a 401K plan, paid time off and vacation, tuition reimbursement and discounted room rates

The job fair on the third floor of the Austin Convention Center, 500 E. Cesar Chavez St., begins at 9 a.m. both days. Applications also can be submitted online at
