Applications are now being accepted for the new Dick’s Drive-In at 220th and Highway 99 in Edmonds (in the Top Foods parking lot).
Dick’s is known for generous benefits and wages that are above industry standard. Hiring will start by mid-
September so the new crew will be trained and ready for a grand opening before Thanksgiving.
“Our hope is that the final government inspections and approvals will go as smoothly as the construction,” said company vice president Jim Spady. “If all goes well, we’ll open earlier than we had planned and definitely before Thanksgiving.”
The Edmonds crew will include veteran employees transferring from Dick’s five existing restaurants plus new hires that also do their initial training at an existing drive-in.
At least 25 people will be hired. Benefits include 100 percent employer-paid health insurance, $22,000 for college scholarships and subsidized childcare even for part-time employees. Wages start at $9.50 per hour.
Prospective employees can apply at any of the existing Dick’s locations.
