Everett Public Schools, City Hall and Encore with many openings
By Josh Resnek
Everett residents looking for a job need not be scratching their heads.
Between job openings at the casino and hotel and the City of Everett, residents here have upwards of 100 opportunities.
Online listings can vary from day to day, but in their entirety they show a healthy job market of almost limitless possibilities for local residents.
A study of what is available at Encore and the city reveals a host of jobs of all kinds – from highly specialized, to the most basic.
Encore is now looking for an Executive vice president for operation, an entertainment production supervisor, an event sales manager, a security command center dispatcher, a senior banquet steward and a gaming agent to list but a few.
Others include positions for an electrician, host, guest room housekeeper, assistant manager for the call center, sous chef, butler/runner, poker floor person, and on and on.
Encore offers competitive to above average wages and benefits for superior work efforts in return.
At Everett City Hall right now there are at least 10 open positions for those wishing to work in city government.
Available city positions are slightly more specialized.
Some have not been filled since being posted 8-10 months ago.
The city is looking for an on-call police matron, for a full-time E-911 dispatcher, a community planning specialist, a technical services librarian and a registered nurse.
Also the city listings include positions available for a chief procurement officer, a crossing guard, a director of communications and an assistant director of human resources.
Another position available is that of recreation director at the Samuel Gentile Memorial Recreational Center.
City work has its advantages for local residents especially.
Most city hall jobs offer four day workweeks with Friday’s off. Everett has had a four day work week for quite some time. A national four day work week is now being sought by public interest groups and some lobbyists.
The five day workweek has been in force for more than 75 years without change.
