More than 1,000 people are expected to line up at the Beverly Heritage next week, applying for 150 jobs at the new Costa Mesa hotel.
After a five-month construction delay, the $27-million facility needs to fill 150 jobs in preparation for opening its doors April 22.
Besides laundry staff workers and stewards, the posh, 238-room hotel is looking to hire desk attendants, concierges, bartenders and painters. One disc jockey will be hired for the lounge.
"It's a chance for the people who will operate the hotel to personally interview" job seekers, said Robert McHenry, vice president of marketing for the three-hotel chain. Once at the six-story, marbled structure, applicants will fill out forms before being interviewed by tuxedoed management staff.
The Beverly Heritage, located next to the Orange County Performing Arts Center, will take applications from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday .
