Employment Opportunity

Imlay City School Food Service is looking for energetic people to assist during employee absences.  You will be joining a group of ladies who started working as just something to do while the kids went to school and stayed for the fun and companionship.  Many of our staff have worked more than 10 years.  Hours are usually between 10am - 2 pm which makes it very convenient because you don’t need to hire caregivers for your children since you are working while they are in school. Days off are the same as student days off (snow days, weekends, holidays).  To apply please stop by the Education Service Center, 634 Borland Rd., Imlay City, 48444 to complete an application.  Job description available upon request.  Any questions please call Roxanne Pierce, 810-724-9855 or email [email protected].
