Cafeteria Substitute

Position Available to External and Internal Applicants

About the Position

External applicants interested in job opportunities in the APS' Cafeterias must first start in this position. This position does not require any educational, experience or skills, but it is required that the applicant has the physical ability to perform all functions of the job. It is preferred, however, that the applicant have high standards of personal hygiene and sanitation, basic math skills with the ability to exchange currency. The Cafeteria Substitute position is an hourly position that works an average of 3.5 hours per day and works on an as needed basis at a variety of school sites. The employee is required to accept daily assignments (via telephone calling system), traveling to various schools sites. The position currently pays $8.75/hour and is not benefit eligible. The working hours are normally anywhere from 8:00 to 11:00a in the morning to 1:00 to 2:00p in the afternoon. This position will only be able to work when schools are in session. The work consists of dishwashing and other cleaning, helping prepare and serve meals, and other work in the cafeterias as assigned. The work is fast paced and requires that employees work quickly and efficiently. The work requires some physical stamina; ability to maneuver and lift heavy objects and being on your feet for several hours. It also requires a real team effort to operate the school cafeteria smoothly and it is important that everyone get along and work together. Immediately upon hire into the Substitute position, employees are eligible to apply for listed Permanent opportunities (See Class I, Class IV or Site Supervisor positions). As a Substitute, your performance is key to being awarded a Permanent position. Internal applicants would need to contact Loretta at 345-5661 X38204 for further information.
