The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is hosting a Bus Driver and Food Services Career Fair on Monday, June 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bosse High School. The fair is for individuals interested in becoming an EVSC bus driver or working at one of the EVSC’s school cafeterias as a food service assistant.
At the fair, officials with the EVSC’s Offices of Transportation and Food and Nutrition will be on hand to answer questions and conduct on-site interviews. Individuals interested in working in EVSC school cafeterias will be able to get a first-hand look at a school cafeteria. And, for those interested in becoming a school bus driver, EVSC school bus trainers also will be on hand to discuss licensing, school bus laws and more. To be hired as an EVSC bus driver, it is not a pre-requisite for individuals to have a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). Once hired, the EVSC will train individuals and assist them in getting their CDL.
A food service assistant is initially hired as a substitute employee and has the opportunity to apply for a permanent position as it becomes available. Permanent positions are three hours per day, Monday through Friday. Hours vary, but generally employees will work three hours between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. depending on the school, making it a great option for parents who would like to work while their children are in school. Food service assistants also receive holidays, sick and personal leave time.
EVSC school bus drivers work from approximately 6 to 8 a.m. and again from 2 to 4 p.m. with additional hours available, if interested. Full-time benefits including medical insurance, holiday pay, personal and sick leave and more are available to EVSC drivers.
