Full Time

Happy Day Catering is seeking applicants for the position of Event Staff & Event Packer. We are offering a $100 hiring incentive in the form of a Happy Day Restaurants gift card to the successful applicant! 

Catering is a busy business where everyone pitches in as needed to make a smooth and successful event. This position encapsulates that experience.

As the face of Happy Day Catering at events, a professional and enthusiastic attitude is a must, as you will regularly be around and interacting with event hosts and guests.

We have vision for this position! The successful applicant will eventually transition to Lead Event Staff, running events on their own and leading a team in the field. You must pass the ID Food Safety Exam to do so.
