Right now, we are hiring for a new catering position. This position involves tracking deliveries as they come in, walking them to nearby event spaces, and working with the client to set everything up for their event.
Each employee will be paired with a one-on-one career mentor to help them with everything from building a resume to figuring out next steps in developing stability in their lives.
At this stage, we are only operating in Harvard Square. Is it possible for you to get over here on a regular basis? We are willing to provide T passes where needed, and we will not disqualify you on the basis of geography. Please provide as much info as you feel comfortable sharing with us here.
Based on federal law, this is a legal requirement for employment. We want all applicants to be aware upfront that this will be required in the interview process. If you do not have these documents, please note how you plan to acquire them below. We apologize for any inconveniences here, but this is outside of our control. More info can be found by copying and pasting this link into another tab:
