Job Summary

You're like the super hero of accounting. You arrive in the night, dive deep into the books, and reveal anything out of place.

You leap to the front desk, attending to that travel-weary guest. And with accurate precision before the sun rises, you draw a clear picture using the night's data for the new day's action. Who was that? It could be you as Night Auditor for Interstate.

As Night Auditor, you will

  • Ensure all aspects of hotel accounting for all areas of hotel operations are processed correctly and accurately recorded, protecting the brand and asset against liability and fraud.

  • Audit, balance, post and report on front desk, rooms, and all food and beverage outlets' cash and credit operations and reset all registers to ensure accurate, timely function and optimal operations management.

  • Provide rooms management with a clear picture of their performance using the data gathered.

  • Run the night audit final, after ensuring all revenue is in balance.

  • Attend to guest needs at the front desk.

Fundamentals

High school education or equivalent experience is required. An Accounting background is preferred but not required.

This position requires attention to detail and the ability to compile facts and figures. In addition to general office equipment, you will regularly operate Interstate systems and software, including a cash register. You must be able to communicate effectively and courteously over the telephone and in person. This position may occasionally require lifting luggage up to 50 pounds.

This position requires the completion of an online Guest Service assessment. Shortly after submitting your application you will receive an email with a link to the online assessment.

Your application will not be considered further until you have also finished and submitted the assessment. The assessment will take about 25 minutes and we recommend you dedicate time without distractions or interruptions to complete it. Please complete the assessment as quickly as your schedule allows. If you have already completed a Guest Service assessment within the last 90 days you will not be required to complete one again.
