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, 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. If you are a sensitive sleeper, I'd recommend against it.

We request that you share 4 night shifts out of the week and complete some daily chores (taking out garbage, recycling, stocking maids closet ~ roughly 1hr a day). Depending on how many helpers there are, things may change.

This is a smoke-free hotel/home.

Available Dates: December 2019 and specifically during the Holidays.

This will be a shared room situation.

There is also option for paid labour added on, so if you have a valid working permit, ask us about our Housekeeping Assistant position. They include helping keep the housekeeping closets stocked, helping our housekeepers strip the linens from the rooms, helping with laundry, stain treating, and etc.

Unfortunately, we do not offer a meal plan, however, you will receive the same benefits as our staff from the cafe (Free coffee, and 50% discount on all food).
