Hiring Events Begin to Emerge as U.S. Stays on Recovery Course

In yet another sign of slow but sure recovery, hiring events are returning to the U.S. and some include restaurant positions. Beaumont-based Jason’s Deli is seeking to fill more than 500 positions at its National Hiring Day event on May 19. The event will take place during business hours at all of the company’s 250 locations across 28 states.

“We’re looking for people who want more than just a job,” said Ragan Edgerly, Jason’s Deli president/COO. “Jason’s Deli is growing, and we have a lot of opportunities for people who want to grow with us.”

Family owned since 1976, Jason’s Deli offers a self-paced career path that provides the tools to advance all the way up to managing partner of a deli. Through the career path, some Jason’s employees have become managing partner of their own delis in as little as 15 months.

Edgerly exemplifies the company’s belief of promoting from within. He started as a dishwasher at the company 41 years ago.
