OHM Concessions Group – the group that includes Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels, etc -must feel confident that it will get the airport food concessions contract. Mayor Ashton Hayward must have decided to wait to see if the Pensacola City Council will override his veto.
Here is the press release we received on the upcoming job fair:
OHM Concessions Group will hold a job fair next week, aiming to fill a number of positions including servers, bartenders, crew members, managers and assistant managers. The new employees will join those currently working at restaurants inside Pensacola International Airport.
OHM is slated to take over food and beverage contract at the airport on April 1; the company, in business since 1998, has major involvement in the concessions at airports in St. Louis and Baltimore.
The Pensacola job fair will be held for three days – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (March 25-27), in the public conference room on the airport’s second floor. It will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; on Thursday the job fair hours will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Parking is free; applicants merely need to bring their parking ticket to the job fair and it will be validated.
Resumes may also be submitted via email to carol@OHMGroup.com, or on the Career Opportunities page of the website.
In its bid for the airport contract, OHM said it would create 100 jobs at the airport over a 10-year period. It also offered the airport a total of at least $1 million more than the nearest competitor for the contract.
