Night Receptionist


Ideally speaking, the day doesn’t start for you until the sun goes down? In other words: are you a real night owl who is bursting with energy and can make guests feel like a rock star until the early hours? Maybe you will take the stage as a Night Receptionist at Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American.

Position summary
