TUMON, Guam—More than a thousand residents have applied in-person and online for management and line staff positions posted by The Tsubaki Tower, Guam’s newest luxury resort in Tumon. The Tsubaki Tower, owned by PHR Ken Micronesia, Inc. and Premier Hotel Group, hosted its first of two pre-opening job fairs at the Hotel Nikko Guam on Sat., Nov. 16, as it prepares for its grand opening on April 25, 2020.

Applicants arrived early to secure their place in line a few hours before the doors opened. More than 700 residents attended the job fair and learned more about the resort’s concept, design and customer service standards during a 10-minute presentation before they filled out applications and met with managers of each of the resort’s departments. Applicants were treated to a virtual tour of the resort’s room categories, food and beverage outlets, wedding services, and amenities.
