Hello and thank you for your interest in The JDK Group! We are super excited to post this job opportunity as we love welcoming new members to our family! First though, here is a little about who we are:
The JDK Group Catering & Events is Central PA’s premier custom catering and event-planning company where clients, and their special life moments, come first. Since 1987, we’ve continued to set the standards for events and hospitality for the areas surrounding Harrisburg, Lancaster, and York. With over 25 years of event management experience and the ability to plan a celebration for 15 to 15,000 people, our talented and passionate team offers exceptional guest service, award winning food, and innovative event design. At JDK, we pride ourselves on being a passionate, cohesive family. We provide an environment for growth and have promoted 75% of our current team in-house. It’s why our customers expect nothing less than an amazing event from us. We set a very high standard for ourselves, and constantly innovate by embracing, not fearing, change.
What is an Event Setup Team exactly? This is our team of individuals who love the behind the scenes work of an event. This team is responsible for loading up the necessary event items, transporting them to the event site, setting them up and in some cases returning to break them down and finally returning all items to their proper storage space in our warehouse. The event items include ovens, large electric heat boxes for food storage, tables and chairs, lounge furniture, and other large decor items. This role also includes asset cleaning and maintenance to ensure all events are suitable for usage. This is a very physical and labor intensive position. It requires the ability to lift at least 50lbs and the ability to be on your feet for 6-8 hour shifts. It also requires the need for a valid driver's license and ability to drive transit vans and box trucks (non CDL). Our setup team will work a non-traditional schedule which will include nights, weekends, and holidays depending on our event schedule. JDK offers a competitive wage of up to $15/hour depending on experience and performance. This is a part time position but can offer up to 30+ hours some weeks.
