W Hotel holds “talent show” to fill job openings

“W Hoboken Hotel & Residences is preparing for its April 2009 debut with the opening of its Talent Recruitment Center. The economy may be in a dismal state, but the job market is a little less bleak in Hoboken, where New Jersey and New York residents are invited to literally get in on the ground floor at W Hoboken Hotel & Residences, as the property will be auditioning to fill all employment opportunities, from housekeeping to front desk to engineering.

W is more than a hotel… it is a lifestyle, and W employees aren’t called “Talent” for nothing. Creative. Exciting. Innovative. W Talent are as unique as the brand itself, and cultivate the witty, whimsical, cool W environment.”

When: Now through January 2009. Mondays-Fridays 9am-6pm. (Saturdays 10-3pm, depending on demand)
Where: The old Hollywood Video location at 1203 Hudson Street

And are you sure the families you see aren’t welfare families who live in NYC but are placed in NJ motels or somesuch?[/quote]

Yes, they’re tourists. Not to stereotype, but welfare people are generally not middle-aged white couples with kids waiting for a NYC bus in front of a hotel at 10am.

Drive past any of the dozens of hotels in Secaucus, Lyndhurst, or along Patterson Plank Road in Carlstadt and Mooanchie and you’ll see families standing out front for the NJTransit buses to NYC. So if tourists are staying in south Bergen County and western Hudson County to visit NYC, then why wouldn’t people stay in Hoboken which is much closer?[/quote]
I didn’t say the Hoboken W Hotel will not draw NYC tourists, I said it will have to beat NYC hotels on price to do so, because Hoboken ain’t NYC.

I’ve ridden the bus with some of these NJ staying tourists. The got on at the Fairfield on Paterson Plank Road in East Rutherford. Price today for a room with 2 double beds is 149.00 per night.

You better hope not. Your Mom likes me a lot better than you, but you probably know that already.

No worries Strand, “Producers of Nothing”/”Important Paper Shufflers” like yourself are always in high demand. :roll:[/quote]

My theory is that Stand knows so much about who is going back to mom’s to be a cellar dweller, is this…

Do you remember the most homophobic fella in school, you know the one years later that came out of the closet? He knows all about cellar dwellers.
