Applications now being accepted for cafeteria workersUp to 40 students may be hired
For those looking to add real work experience to their resumes, 40 positions are available for the 2019 school year in the school cafeteria.
“I loved meeting new people from different classes that you usually never talk to like freshmen and sophomores,” student cafeteria worker Tensaye Woldesenbet. “My most favorite part is the staff, they’re not just members, we were a family.”
While working as a cafeteria aid, students will be in charge of running the registers, minor cleaning and taking out boxes.
“They have to come during their lunch hours, so if they have first lunch that’s when they come in and help out,” cafeteria manager Rosie Hernandez said. “If they’re seniors they can come in during their open period to help set up and get more hours.”
Each worker will be paid the state minimum wage of $8.25 an hour, for up to 2.5 hours a day.
“This job let me more independent in my spending and helped me not rely on my parents as much,” senior Touhidul Miah said. “Also the experience is great for when you’re trying to find an out of school job. Unlike of most of my peers, I can put that I have three years of customer service on my resume.”
Applications can be picked up in the lunch room from Hernandez and must be turned in by April 30th. Students must also provide a photocopy of their social security number and their student ID.
“The fact that I get to see the behind the scenes of how the food industry works from the cafeteria perspective is a true benefit,” junior Gabriella Hernandez said. ” I also get to learn different systems on the computer to ring people up and practice taking orders.”
