Two local businesses are looking to fill open positions.
Bru Burger is opening its newest location on October 1 at 279 Buttermilk Pike in Ft. Mitchell. The recently re-imagined retail strip was first reported by The River City News last year. RCN spoke with Cunningham Restaurant Group, which operates Bru Burger, about the new location in FeBruary.
With the opening date just weeks away, the restaurant is hosting a hiring fair all week long.
The hiring fair's remaining hours are Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The management team will be conducting on-site interviews for immediate employment.
“We are a high-energy, fast-growing company,” said Rob Gannaway, director of operations for the Cunningham Restaurant Group, “and we are looking for employees at all levels of experience. Our culture is to promote from within whenever possible, so that our team members can build meaningful and productive careers."
Gannaway said the restaurant is hiring servers, bartenders, cooks, prep cooks, hosts, and dishwashers.
The new location, which follows the addition of a Bru Burger in downtown Cincinnati, will have space for 180 guests. There will be outdoor dining available on the patio.
The menu features burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, sides, hand-dipped milkshakes, handcrafted cocktails, locally-brewed beer, and a wide selection of wines and bourbons.
Meanwhile, ALDI is also hiring.
The grocery store's locations across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky invite potential employees to stop in and apply, including the locations in Newport, Independence, and Florence.
ALDI is hosting a one-day hiring "spree" on Wednesday for new store associates. The event runs from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The hourly wage is between $11 and $12.70 per hour, depending on location.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
Employees who average more than 25 hours per week are eligible for full health care benefits.
The Newport location is at 1301 Monmouth Street, the Independence location is at 2000 Harris Pike, and the Florence location is at 5475 Houston Road.
