Midland ISD Looks for Lunch Workers 10/07/13
CBS 7 News
Midland Independent School District is looking for lunch staff. Michelle Helms, Director of Child Nutrition Services, says the school is down about one third of its normal staff. Normally the district needs 250 teachers, but right now, it is 72 short. She says they might be short staffed because just like many service places, their wages can’t compete with the oil field.
Because of the shortage, Helms says they’ve had to shuffle around workers, they’ve had to close some lines at secondary schools, and they’ve had to shut all dish rooms and turn everything to Styrofoam. She also says the shortage means the staff has had to go to more convenient foods and do less scratch cooking.
Helms says if you want to apply for a position, you only need to work 4 hours a day to qualify for benefits. You also have to pass a background check. Visit: http://www.midlandisd.net/career for more information on how you can apply.
