The Salvation Army is looking for bell ringers. People who want to stand in front of certain businesses and collect donations can work for up to five weeks just before Christmas.
“We are looking for season bell ringers and we will pay $8 an hour. We offer full time and part time hours,” said Esther Rush, business administrator for the Salvation Army.
She was among 20 organizations that participated in the Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency Job Fair at the E. Pat Larkin Community Center. Many of the participating companies were looking for seasonal workers.
Dahlia Baker, program manager for the Pompano Beach CRA was pleased to see employers and potential employees coming together. “This is good for the community. This will help people who are looking for work find jobs and businesses find employees,” she said.
Lena Levine of Teleperformance, a call center said, “We are looking for a lot of people to work for us and we found some good potential candidates today,” she said.
Janie Cenedella of GBS Enterprises said she was impressed by the candidate she said. “We are looking for people who will really work hard and we saw some people who we might want to hire,” she said.
The Job Fair is a program offered by the Pompano Beach CRA to benefit the community.
