A family run petite hotel in downtown Montreal is seeking help to share the overnight shifts to answer emergency calls and open the door for late arrivals.

In exchange for accommodation and breakfast, you will have a room, in our home (in the hotel), which may be shared with another helper. In the hotel, you will have great opportunities to meet other Montrealers who work here and guests who stay here.

The overnight duties include having the phone on standby and being available to help guests between 11pm-7am in case of emergencies. We invite you to sleep, like normal, and just make sure you have the phone near you so you can answer any calls.

We have an automated voice answering machine in the evening for outside calls, so the calls you will get are only from guests who have an emergency or from the intercom system (which late arrivals will ring).

The normal hours of interruptions are usually from 11pm to 12:30am during high season and close to nil during low season. If you are a late sleeper this will be a great arrangement for you.

We request that you share 4 night shifts out of the week and complete some daily chores (taking out garbage, recycling, stocking maids closet, watering plants, small maintenance projects -- about 3-4 hours a day). Depending on how many helpers there are, things will change.

This is a smoke-free hotel/home.

Dates available for 1 person: April 2018 and onward.

This will be a shared room situation.
