A NEW 5-star Sheraton Hotel, to open in Bratislava next February, is using an innovative method to recruit its future personnel – a ‘Day of Talents’ will be held on November 13.

The job selection process will be undertaken in an unconventional way. Candidates are not required to submit a CV but instead are asked to attend the day’s events and to show members of the hotel’s assessment team what they are capable of doing.

“Getting a job at the Sheraton Bratislava requires neither a CV nor previous experience in the hotel industry – Sheraton is looking for people with the right attitude,” the press release stated.
Job candidates can register in the morning of November 13 at the Heineken Tower Stage in the Tower 115 building in Bratislava.

“After registering, the candidates will handle several practical tasks connected with the area they are interested in,” said the general director of the Sheraton Bratislava, Floortje Jeukens. “They will be assessed by experienced managers from the Starwood hotel network as well as by their future colleagues from the Sheraton Bratislava.”

Those who successfully pass through the practical tasks will then be interviewed individually.
The hotel plans to select 150 staff members on November 13 for positions in all areas of the hotel’s work such as catering, cleaning, and customer contact positions.
