What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Research the company and demonstrate that they understand what we are all about, that they get our unique take on how we care for our guest our community and one another. Demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities for the position being applied for and a passion for the hospitality business. Mark Twain said the two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. Our ultimate search goal is to find those people who believe being part of the Eureka family and doing our divine work is part of their life's work.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are currently recruiting for General Room Attendants (GRAs). The Eureka offers a superior product within the market and the quality of our hotel, and more specifically our hotel rooms, make up a large part of what differentiates us from our competitors. The GRAs play an integral role in keeping our rooms up to the Eureka standard that our guests have come to expect. It is for that reason that GRAs employed by the Eureka receive the highest starting wages in the market. We are also recruiting for a General Ledger Accountant. The responsibilities of our Accounting Department have grown over the past year as it is responsible for not only the accounting of Eureka but also for our sister property the Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort, which the Eureka manages. As a result, we are looking for an individual with a strong technical accounting background to join the team.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Google the company; Google the senior team; Read articles about what the company has done, and more importantly, learn why the company has done everything it has done from a business standpoint, and through the prism of supporting our community; learn what an ESOP is and why the company became one; and, finally, the candidate should understand that the employment process should be as much about them choosing the company as it is about the company choosing them.
