About Us

Imagine yourself in 1930’s Chicago. Chicago celebrated its centennial by hosting the world’s fair in 1933. The speakeasies and gangsters were thriving. It was a distinguished time in Chicago’s history. The Gwen has a glorious past and an even more glorious future. Rooted in the history and heritage of downtown Chicago in the 1930’s, the Gwen serves as a city emblem of this golden era and yet is poised to bring luxury to a future generation of worldly travelers. This unmistakable inspiration comes to life with our historic façade, famously created by sculptress Gwen Lux in 1928. A female artisan making a mark in a predominantly 1930’s, male design city depicts and exciting atmosphere of change. The building has been home to many stories in an illustrious past.

Health, dental and vision are just a start. We offer unlimited career potential, top of the line training, free lunch, discounted Ventra cards and we also provide your uniforms. Now we’re inviting you to re-create the Gwen experience. Let it be a canvas for your own personal stories.

We value U.S. military experience and invite all qualified military candidates to apply.
