WAUWATOSA — With several restaurants opening this spring at The Mayfair Collection in Wauwatosa, Bartolotta Restaurant Group and its management arm, Phoenix Hospitality Group, are looking to hire more than 200 employees.

“At The Bartolotta Restaurants, we are committed to excellence in every aspect of our business, from the products we source to the food and service we deliver every day in our restaurants and catering facilities,” said Dustin Farberg, human resources business manager and corporate recruiter, in a statement.

“The greatest asset in our company is our employees because without great employees, we wouldn’t be in business. We look for employees who have what we call a ‘hospitality heart.’ These people are committed to excellence just like we are and have a true passion for taking care of our guests. We’re a family-run business and we consider our employees part of our family.”

Open interviews will start at March job fairs and will last until April in the Bartolottas’ downtown Milwaukee restaurant, Rumpus Room. Each job fair will be interviewing to fill several positions including cooks, servers, hosts, bartenders and cashiers.

The initial job fairs will focus on seasonal positions at Northpoint Custard located at Bradford Beach (open during the summer season) and both seasonal and permanent positions at Harbor House, the fine dining seafood restaurant located on Lake Michigan.

Then in April, a larger recruiting effort will be held for the upcoming (and currently unnamed) taco restaurant, tavern, and French bistro at The Mayfair Collection. After hiring for 100 positions at their fast casual restaurant, Osgood’s, Phoenix Hospitality Group seeks more than 200 full- and part-time employees at all levels and positions.
