Gaylord Opryland Resort plans to hire more than 200 seasonal positions in preparation for its 37th-annual A Country Christmas celebration.
“Gaylord Opryland Resort is a fun place to work, but with more than 3 million lights, acres of over-the-top decorations and festive entertainment, the holidays are extra special as we can offer seasonal positions,” said Gaylord Opryland vice president and market general manager John Adams.
The seasonal positions, which start at $11.50 per hour, include retail or special event attendants and tour guides. Job perks include numerous discounts on attraction tickets and hotel rooms.
A series of virtual job fairs will be conducted Oct. 7 and Oct. 14 from 2-4 p.m. Those interested can register to attend or apply at gaylordoprylandhiring.com.
A Country Christmas, which opens Nov. 13 and will run through Jan. 3 has been hailed as one of the “Ten Great Places to Catch up with Santa” by USA Today; “The Most Christmassy Hotel in the Nation” by the Travel Channel’s “Extreme Christmas;” one of the top 10 places to spend Christmas in the world by Travel + Leisure; and a “Nashville treasure” by Southern Living.

The 2,888-room hotel offers “everything in one place”– diverse dining options, a full-service spa, top-notch entertainment, on-site shopping, an award-winning golf course, SoundWaves upscale water attraction and more.
