You've probably been to Montreal's Bell Centre for a Habs game or concert, but have you ever considered working there? The exclusive caterer for the Bell Centre is hiring in Montreal — and it's holding a massive job fair to recruit around 100 full- and part-time workers.
Roles they're looking to fill include general workers, head servers, servers, hosts and hostesses, dishwashers, bartenders, bussers and production chefs.
"We are looking for bilingual and dynamic candidates with experience in the kitchen or in service. We are looking for candidates with impeccable professionalism and a passion for teamwork," reads a Facebook event page for the job fair.
According to a spokesperson for Compass Group, the Bell Centre's foodservice and support services provider, benefits when joining their team include "endless career growth opportunities, flexible schedules, an industry leading health and safety team and culture, as well as a Great Place to Work certified company culture."
According to the event page, salaries are competitive. Plus, you'll get the chance to work at exciting large-scale events, like shows and hockey games.

You've probably seen Wong Wing products at the grocery store — but did you know it's a local company born in Montreal's Chinatown in 1948? Wong Wing's food manufacturing plant now operates out of the city's Ville-Marie borough, near Hochelaga, and the Montreal company is currently hiring 60 workers for a range of roles.
This manufacturing plant makes everything in the company's product portfolio, Wong Wing spokesperson Rose Alvarado told MTL Blog. According to the website, Wong Wing offers the country's largest selection of frozen Chinese dishes so that's a whole variety of freezer food — from won ton soup to spring rolls to chicken chow mein.

Wong Wing, also known as MLW Foods Inc., is looking to fill 20 night positions and 40 day positions.
The jobs include:
line operator (packing, manufacturing)
team lead production
lift truck driver
electromechanic (license C)
Alvarado said the company provides its employees with fair wages, access to pensions and health care, health and wellness programs, flexible working, a safety program, free parking and fun events.
The plant is also close to the Frontenac metro station.
Qualifications depend on the position, but Alvarado said production positions do not require experience or bilingualism. You should still apply if you only have very basic conversational French skills.
"We are very excited to have been chosen by the League to host the draft, which will take place in Montreal for the first time since 2009," France Margaret Bélanger, president, Sports and Entertainment of Groupe CH, said in a press release.
It’s official, the 2022 NHL Draft will take place in Montreal on July 7 and 8!
You could earn $22.21 an hour without a degree or experience (but you do need a high school diploma). Plus, the plant promises a 15% raise each year for three years, so you'd be making $30 an hour in just a few years — and there's the possibility of getting an annual performance bonus.
While no specific degree or experience is necessary, you are expected to be fluent in both oral and written French.
The job listing says you should have an "interest in developing in a major manufacturing company," interest in working on mechanical equipment, familiarity with computers and data entry and you should be a team player.
You'd also have to pass health and safety tests before you start.
Here are some of the duties you'd be performing as a production operator, according to the job listing:
Support the plant's different production lines
Operate equipment and/or computerized systems
Process, file or package different products
Wash equipment and maintain the work environment
The gig also comes with benefits: basic group insurance covered 100% by the employer and a pension plan with up to 8% employer contribution. There's medical staff on-site, a store where you can get employee discounts, free parking, a cafeteria where you can purchase food and social activities, like food trucks.
The night shift goes from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
You can apply here or by sending your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
