We have the perfect part-time job for you! No need to have a diploma in aesthetics, the company will train you 😉
- Sales Associate @ The North Face | This global company is looking for sales associates who has customer service experience and proficient in Word processing, spreadsheets, and software programs. If accepted, know that you will be required to stand regularly while on the job. So before you apply, make sure that you are capable of doing physically demanding tasks 💪🏻

It has come to our attention yesterday (Thursday) morning that wifi was down in the entire building 😔 This prompted us to immediately address the issue and our tech team acted at once to resolve the matter.
After some thorough investigation, we found out that the City's snow removal truck accidentally broke the fiber optic connection 💔. Needless to say, this was an unforeseen incident that was beyond our control. Good news is that our ever-reliable and dedicated tech guys worked overtime and fixed the connection Thursday evening 💪🏻
For future reference (although we obviously hope it doesn't happen again), if any of you need to connect to the internet ASAP, a good alternative would be to go to Shaughnessy Cafe
. It's only a few steps away from the residence and they have decent internet connection.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, Chelsea fam! 🙏🏻
We have recently received reports that one of our Peloton bikes is not functioning at the moment.
Upon checking, the housekeeping team informed us that the bike's power cable is broken.
We want to inform our CFam Peloton lovers that we are already in the process of ordering a replacement for the power cable 😌 We will keep you guys posted once it's up and running again! 😁
Are you enjoying your Chelsea House Experience so far? It would mean the world to us if you could take a few minutes to share with us your thoughts (check out the link below).
