The Sea Pines Resort Plans to Hire 140 New Employees

Active recruiting push underway in advance of The Quarterdeck restaurant’s opening

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (Jan. 12, 2022) – The Sea Pines Resort is launching a large recruitment drive to hire as many as 140 new employees in advance of the re-opening of The Quarterdeck restaurant in early April.

Newly redeveloped, the restaurant will have an expansive wrap around deck, indoor bar and dining area on the first floor, and a new rooftop oyster bar offering 270-degree views of the Harbour Town Yacht Basin and Calibogue Sound. A casual, walk-up market on the ground level will serve as a place to grab a quick bite to go or to stock up on provisions for the day. The addition of a boardwalk will direct pedestrian flow to the market and pier, creating a gathering spot in this prime waterfront setting.

For the next three months, the resort will be hiring managers, servers, bartenders, hosts and hostesses, sous chefs, line cooks, kitchen stewards, and bussers, said Candice Taylor, resort recruiting manager. In addition to receiving applications online, Taylor said the resort will be hosting job fairs in Sea Pines each of the next three months:

  • Thursday, Jan. 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., Magnolia Room, 100 N. Sea Pines Drive
  • Monday, Feb. 21, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., Champions Ballroom, 11 Lighthouse Lane
  • Saturday, March 19, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Champions Ballroom, 11 Lighthouse Lane

Taylor said selected positions are being filled immediately and the new employees are starting their tenure in the resort’s other venues while simultaneously being trained to work at The Quarterdeck upon its opening. She added that almost all food-and-beverage positions will include sign-on bonuses.

According to Steve Birdwell, president of The Sea Pines Resort, The Quarterdeck “will serve as the cornerstone of Harbour Town and is destined to become the most desirable dining venue on Hilton Head Island.”

Applicants should visit to review available jobs, plus benefits and privileges. In addition to competitive wages, The Sea Pines Resort offers health, dental, vision, and other insurance options after a 60-day waiting period; free golf on two of the resort’s award-winning golf courses (cart fee applies); free tennis and recreation privileges; employee retail discounts; and a strong 401(k) with company match and profit sharing following one year of service.
