Jobs available at Chambers Bay; one firm still hiring workers

At least one vendor at the U.S. Open Championship continues to seek local workers.

Tommy Hazelton of New York-based Event Aces will be accepting applications in the lobby of the La Quinta Inn & Suites at 1425 E. 27th St. in Tacoma until 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 16.

He said Tuesday afternoon that he is seeking concession and food-service workers to work Wednesday through Sunday at Chambers Bay.

Chefs can expect an hourly wage of between $14 and $16; servers will earn $11 and dishwashers $10.

Hazelton said he hopes to hire 30 workers. A food-handlers permit is required for kitchen work, except for dishwashers.

If he is unable to hire enough workers on Tuesday, he said he would make further outreach with online classified ads.
