  • Review confidential staff requests including roommate requests, anti-requests, and additional accommodation requests to create accessible reservations.
  • Create room reservations based on departmental needs, staffer shifts, and staffer preferences.
  • On-call during event for emergencies pertinent to staff rooms is preferable.
    • This includes check-in issues, irreconcilable room-mates, no-shows, inaccurate reservation durations, and more.

Background: Experience working remotely is preferred. Innkeepers should be respectful of deadlines, detail-orientated, and respectful towards staffer accessibility.
