Due to the addition of the new student housing facility Hillcrest Hall, the expanded Oakland Center dining offerings and the general need for more employees on Oakland University’s campus, Chartwells Higher Education, OU’s food service partner, will be hosting a free, drop-in job fair on campus Tuesday, July 10 through Thursday, July 12.

Jobs will include a full range of food service positions including: cooks, bakers, baristas, hot and cold prep workers, line workers, catering attendants and catering captains, cashiers, dishwashers and more. People with all levels of experience are welcome to attend and apply. Job-seekers can show up at the Oakland Center (312 Meadow Brook Road, Rochester, Michigan) outside of Au Bon Pain between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There, preliminary interviews will be conducted and those selected to continue the process will move to interview rooms where many will be offered jobs on the spot.

Chartwells looks for motivated, energetic individuals looking for an exciting career in campus dining. Chartwells hires both permanent non-student and student associates at very competitive wages, flexible scheduling with hours varying between approximately 15-40 hours per week. Chartwells OU relies on associates in restaurants, dining centers, convenience stores and coffee shops around campus. Job opportunities are flexible and can often meet the needs of people seeking schedule flexibility.
