The Kalamazoo Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is a big place, and it needs a big crew of people to run it.
We're pretty much set on managers, projectionists and concierges, but we are still looking for servers, cooks, bartenders and kitchen help. If you're interested, here's what to do.
First: If you are over 18, go to drafthouse.com and apply online. Here's the link. A manager may call to schedule an appointment with you.
Second: Our managers will be holding open interviews from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18 for cooks and kitchen personnel. Open interviews for bartenders and servers are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21 and Tuesday, Oct. 22. If you're coming for an open interview and you have not applied online, you should bring a resume and (if possible) a list of references that could be contacted.You can show up at 180 Portage Street and look for this sign.
Third: If you are applying, keep in mind that the theater is open 365 days a year and that theaters do most of their business on weekends and during holiday periods. All servers, food handlers and bartenders will be expected to earn the proper certifications. Previous experience is always a plus, but not always a requirement.
Stop down, meet us and see if you've got what it takes to join the team!
