Durham School Services Looking For New Employees

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

The Bethlehem Center will host a mini job fair with Durham School Services at the Emma Wheeler Homes and the Bethlehem Center this Thursday and Friday. Durham is hiring drivers and monitors for Hamilton County. 

The job fair will be at the Emma Wheeler Homes, 4900 Edinburg Dr. on Thursday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and at the Bethlehem Center, 200 W 38th St. on Friday from 4-5:30 p.m.

"One of our goals at the Bethlehem Center is to help our parents find a job with a liveable wage to support their families," says Gloria Dubose, director of Community Outreach for the Bethlehem Center. "Research shows that the average family income in our zip code is $17,892. We want that to increase to about $30,000, or more, so that our parents will have enough to take care of their families and, hopefully, not live paycheck to paycheck."

Driver positions start at $15.25 an hour and include 401(k) retirement planning.

Durham is offering a $2,500 signing bonus for those who sign up and pass testing in the next four weeks.
