The Quarter Rat’s continuously updated list of local service industry jobs

LAST UPDATED: April 25, 2022, 1:52 p.m. CST.

Do you want a job? Or better yet, do you need one? Welcome to The Quarter Rat’s job board.

I dig through social media and the web for open service industry, etc. positions in and around the French Quarter, and put ’em right fucking here. Many of these places don’t even advertise, much less tell people they’re hiring. But if you want to know if they are, you’ve come to the right place. Cash your last social security check, sober up, sharpen your skills and get a fucking job because you’ve got mouths to feed, namely mine. Good luck. (Wages/salary and other information posted when available).
