Lanier Islands resort is looking to add 531 staff members to prepare for the summer season.

The new workers will fill positions at Lanier Islands’ beach, boardwalk and waterpark entertainment district — LanierWorld — as well as at Harbor Landing, The Stables and Legacy Lodge, among other venues throughout the 1,500-acre Buford resort.

Lanier Islands will hold job fairs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 18, 5-7 p.m. March 22 and 5-7 p.m. March 28.

The resort is seeking 120 lifeguards, plus servers, concessions, bartenders, stewards, security, cooks, auditors, cashiers, common area attendants and more.

Candidates may apply at or visit the Human Resources Department at the resort between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. But human resources director Sandra Grindy recommends coming to a job fair.

“At our first job fair of the season, we had 108 people show up and 92 walked away with jobs,” Grindy said in a press release.

Candidates must be at least 16 years old to apply. Acceptable documentation to meet I-9 requirements and appropriate interview attire are highly recommended.
