Polish your resume, dress to impress and get your best smile ready because iconic local businesses are hiring and they want you. The Kessler Collection is hosting a job fair June 29 and June 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the JW Marriott Plant Riverside Amethyst Room on River St.
Career opportunities are available for all levels in the following fields: culinary, housekeeping, engineering, security, front desk, retail and pool attendants. Positions are available at the JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District, the Mansion on Forsyth Park and the Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront.
“Kessler Collection job fairs are being held on a rolling basis to fill new positions at all three of our Savannah properties,” said Nancy Kiska, area vice president of Human Resources for JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. “We’re also planning to open our new Atlantic Building at Plant Riverside District this fall, so we are currently adding additional team members to staff the new building.”
With additional federal unemployment benefits ending at the end of the month, this is a perfect opportunity to begin a new career or showcase existing experience.
“We may very well see higher attendance at the Kessler Collection June job fair due to the fact that unemployment benefits will be reduced at the end of the month,” Kiska said. “It’s a great time to be looking for a job at The Kessler Collection, as we have a number of exciting positions available.”
The portfolio of passionately created and artistically inspired boutique hotels boasts chic design, luxurious accommodations, enriching ambiance and intuitive service. Designed to inspire mystique and encourage unforgettable experiences, guests are immersed in redefined Bohemian luxury.
“I love working for The Kessler Collection, especially the JW Marriott,” said Luis Bueno Lopez, kitchen supervisor at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. “The luxury level is indescribable. I love to learn as much as I can, and this property has allowed me to do that. No kitchen can succeed without teamwork — that is something I truly believe in.”

The Bohemian Hotel sits at W. Bay St. and is just one of the Kessler Collection properties seeking new employees.
Fellow employee and front office supervisor Sarah Semple said, “Working at the JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District is so inspiring. This property is not just a hotel. My coworkers have become family, and we treat each other with the respect we all deserve. There is always something new to learn each day. No matter what happens, there is always someone there to help.”
Event highlights include on-site interviews, a tour of the properties, an overview of the benefits available to Kessler Collection associates and more. Hiring and attendance bonuses are available.
While they have hired over 200 team members in the past year, there are still 75 positions open. A variety of benefits include medical, dental, vision, tuition reimbursement, life insurance, pet insurance, special discounts and more.
“We offer incredible benefits and a variety of ways to earn extra money as well as a sign-on bonus,” Kiska said. “We invite everyone who’s interested in working in Savannah’s hospitality industry to attend our June job fair.”
