In the past few weeks, the Food Service industry has been hit especially hard, with thousands of workers laid off or let go. A FootBridge client located in Beverly, MA has been designated as Essential by the state of Massachusetts, and they are currently hiring several Materials Assistants to join their team. Our client is especially interested in Food Service workers because of the impact they’ve felt in the past few weeks, and because of their easily transferable skillsets and strong work ethic.
Below we discuss some frequently asked questions about these Materials Assistant roles and how our client is approaching work during this current climate.
What additional safety precautions are being taken?
Each of our clients operates their manufacturing processes in ‘Cleanrooms’, areas which are “designed to maintain extremely low levels of particulates, such as dust, airborne organisms, or vaporized particles”. In addition to their typical safety protocol, our clients are taking additional measures to ensure the safety of their workers. These elevated measures include:
- Staggering shifts to have fewer employees on a site at a time.
- Cleaning & disinfecting after every shift, following the CDC guidelines outlined for facilities.
- Requiring each employee to wear rubber gloves while working.
Why are these manufacturing organizations designated as essential?
Our client manufactures equipment used to make computer chips in all the various releases, including semiconductor manufacturing and the companies that support them. At this critical time, we need computing power more than ever. From people working from home to Telehealth meetings with doctors, and the staff at the hospitals, everyone is relying on computer chips to enable the cloud infrastructure and keep servers online.
Why are Food Service workers especially desirable candidates?
Food Service workers have been hit especially hard by these unprecedented times. Additionally, they tend to have many transferrable skills they can bring to the job, making training a more seamless process.
