Octo to do a job fair

The club, on the riverfront where Rock Lobster was, is looking for about 100 people.

Octo to do a job fair

Octo Waterfront Grille, due to open by Memorial Day weekend on the former Rock Lobster pier on Columbus Boulevard, will host a job fair at the Hyatt Penn’s Landing from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Management seeks about 100 jobs for food servers, cocktail servers, hostesses, bartenders, bar backs, food runners, security, busers and other kitchen staff.

There should be no problem getting candidates, if my chat with Matt Doman, who is about two weeks from reopening the Broad Axe Tavern in Montgomery County, is any indication. Doman says he put out a call for resumes on Craigslist and got about 150 in less than a day.
