Vancouver's most trusted resource

for hospitality staffing and recruitment

B.C.'s award winning hospitality recruitment agency

Welcome to EWR

Based in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Executive Waiter Resources Inc. (EWR) is Vancouver’s premier leader and an award winning hospitality staffing recruitment agency.

EWR has built a strong reputation as a proactive and innovative company that provides superior employment opportunities for our staff while delivering quality, customized staffing solutions that work for each client.

Seeing the Demand

Chris Monk, President, envisioned to raise the bar in the hospitality recruitment industry in Vancouver and founded EWR in 1997. Chris was determined to have EWR solve human resources hiring issues by understanding exactly what its clients needs were and succeed meeting them. EWR has accomplished this and prides itself on finding a customized solution for every staffing requirement.

Having the Experience

Having initially worked for the reputable Sutton Hotel in Toronto, he found himself serving top business executives and famous Hollywood celebrities. In 1997, Chris moved to Vancouver and started his dream. His first project was to supply servers for the APEC 1997 Prime Minsiter Gala Dinner hosted in downtown. It was a huge success and since then EWR’s reputation has continued to grow.

Recieving the Reward

In February 2003, Chris was a proud recipient, of the prestigious 40 under 40 Award. Every year, The Business In Vancouver Magazine along with Vancouver’s business community, recognizes British Columbia’s Top Business Achievers and Entrepreneurs, to which Chris Monk was honoured with this award. This accomplishment is also a tribute to EWR’s dedicated staff and the high standards of its clients.

Hospitality professionals need to exhibit extraordinary leadership, communication and interpersonal skills. Because EWR knows that past performance is the best indicator of future behaviour, it recruits staff whose work history demonstrates stability, loyalty, positive attitude and commitment.

Committing to Success

In order to maintain its standards, EWR insists on conducting on-site and performance-based, job interviews. Background and reference checks only tell part of the story. EWR always makes sure that any practical accomplishments listed on a candidate’s resume are demonstrated on-site and verified. EWR conducts its own tests for both practical knowledge and positive attitude.

EWR has a proven track record and the know-how to ensure that each client’s professional service criteria are upheld, at all times. Using EWR’s services means our clients do not spend valuable time interviewing or attempting to train unqualified candidates.

EWR’s ability to repeatedly select and deliver qualified, well-trained staff to its clients is the secret to our success. So choose us, and we will help you succeed!
