Okay, let’s just put one thing out there— we love Vancouver and all its glorious surrounding areas. But even the most loyal of Vancouverites would agree living outside of the Greater Vancouver area has its perks. Low cost of living, spectacular natural beauty and less chaotic life to name a few. So, we thought we’d share the happy news with anyone interested… Fairmont Chateau Whistler is currently hiring!

An offering of the Accor Group, the Fairmont recently announced job openings at its Whistler Chateau. TBH, living amidst bountiful nature and spectacular views, away from the city chaos is reason enough for us to consider working at Fairmont… But they have a lot more to offer.

Working with Fairmont has its share of irresistible perks. Here are 6 of many—

Comfy Accommodation

Frankly, any accommodation outside of Great Vancouver would seem affordable to us. But Fairmont goes a step ahead to provide employees with subsidized, clean and safe housing. It’s not mandatory to stay here, but with what you’re getting for this price point, it’s kind of is the obvious choice.

Affordable Meals

Fairmont Chateau Whistler has an in-house staff cafeteria, Oscar’s, that serves fresh, hot meals to colleagues. Employees can get one complimentary meal each shift, along with a subsidized price ($5/meal) for any additional meals. For times when you want to indulge, you’ll find some great culinary experiences in Whistler downtown.

Work-Play Balance

When you’re surrounded by all things fun and adventurous, you don’t have to wait for the weekend to indulge. You can do it pre- and post-work, all week long. From hiking, biking and golfing in summer to skiing and snowshoeing in winter, this place is an all-season outdoor paradise.
