I know this is a way off for people who would like a job now but we know it takes time. This position is good for people who are in-between jobs, retirees and/or even students who can and are willing to work:

  • Monday – Friday Not every Friday is scheduled

  • 20 – 30 hours week

  • Day time hours 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM Day’s can end earlier depending on the number of residents to interview

  • $19 per hour plus mileage from the persons home to the facility and return

  • We have a majority of the 2019 interviewers returning this year which is good but the scope of the project is larger. That’s why we need more people.
