No previous experience required. What's even better is that you'll be given discounted and/or free food!! 

  • Weekend Doorman @ Résidence de la Tour Westmount | This gig is for bilingual members (FR and EN). If hired for the job, you will have to cover a shift from 3h30 to 11h30pm on Saturday and Sunday. Your job as the doorman is simply guarding the entrance of the building, opening doors for people and greeting them as they come in, closing the common areas doors, doing the recycling, and ensuring that the entrance is cleaned.

  • For those of you who won't be coming back next semester, please make sure that you leave your keys in the box located at the office (above the printer). 
This is SUPER important as we will be retrieving the said keys upon return of our staff after the holidays. Note that if we find that your keys or any possession of Chelsea House is missing, you will be charged accordingly against your security deposit.
On the other hand, if you’re leaving on vacation, do not forget your keys. There will be limited staff over the holidays so we don’t want you getting locked out 😬
  • Again, we ask EVERYONE to please complete the holiday schedule form that we have provided in the WhatsApp group chat, if you haven’t already. This will help us ensure that there will be no surprises during the holiday break. It would also enable us to make the necessary arrangement for those of you who will be staying at CH house during this time.

Alright, that's it for now! 
Stay Classy,
The Chelsea House Community Team
