Sandals gearing up for reopening

THE CONTRACTS for new employees of Sandals Barbados Resort & Spa are “mostly” ready, following the well-attended job fair earlier this month, says general manager Josef Zellner.

He said the resort’s grand opening was on stream and it was now a matter of training.

“We are still scheduled to open in January and the contracts have mostly been written up. The training is starting next month because when you open a hotel, you want to make sure the team members are comfortable, which makes the job easier when you know what to do and how to do it,” he said today.

Zellner was speaking today as Sandals handed over five computers and 500 books to the St Lawrence Primary School.

The first day of the job fair took place October 7 where thousands of people attended. The crush of people was unexpected and resulted in some fighting and fainting but the proceedings normalised during the subsequent days. Around 600 positions were expected to be filled. (CA)
