Our company is people-centered. We understand the importance of operational excellence coupled with exceptional people leadership. Our Leadership Development Program brings learning and expectations for both.

Meyer Jabara Hotels Leadership Development Program is a placement opportunity whereby hotel school graduates build a strong professional foundation and understanding of how each position, department, and division contributes to a hotel’s overall success. In addition to receiving a competitive salary and benefits package, at the end of the twelve month program, qualified candidates are offered full-time, entry-level management positions in the Rooms or Food-and-Beverage divisions within the Meyer Jabara Hotels portfolio.

Here’s how the Meyer Jabara Hotels Leadership Development Program works:

Step One: Apply to the program by filling out the contact form below.

Step Two: Begin the twelve month rotation. The training program begins with an orientation on the Meyer Jabara Hotels brand and its company culture, referred to as “The Journey.” Along “The Journey,” candidates will be trained to embrace empowerment and the responsibility for providing superior customer service and differentiated repeatable experiences for guests. Candidates will attend two interactive training classes: “Leading the Journey” prepares them to nurture and perpetuate the culture, while “Living the Journey” showcases the benefits and expectations of living and working within this culture from a managerial perspective.

You may also receive ServSafe® Food Protection Manager Certification from the National Restaurant Assn. that provides education on food sanitation and foodborne illness (and how to prevent it). TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS) Certification is also conducted to ensure education and training for the responsible service, sale, and consumption of alcohol.

Candidates then rotate throughout every department of the hotel, gaining hands-on experience and working together with fellow employees. 

Step Three: Placement at a Meyer Jabara Hotel. After successfully completing the program, an evaluation of the candidate’s performance will be conducted by the property’s General Manager and/or VP of Operations. Based on the review, a candidate may then be offered a full-time, entry-level management position within the Meyer Jabara portfolio. Placement is determined by skills, interest, talent and individual property needs.
