Really Cool Foods to Start Taking Job Applicants

Saturday July 26, 2008

“We are pleased that Really Cool Foods is ready to begin hiring,” said Jim Dinkle, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Wayne County. “A year ago when Really Cool Foods first approached us about locating here, we were impressed by their plans. Since then, their staff has worked extremely hard to build their plant and prepare for production. The EDC and Wayne County have been partners with Really Cool Foods to make needed improvements to the Indiana Gateway Industrial Park. Now, with the hiring of its initial work force, we are beginning to see the fruits of all of these efforts.”

Really Cool Foods has hired Tilson HR to conduct initial screening interviews for prospective employees. Headquartered in Greenwood, Tilson HR serves companies in 26 states. On Aug. 1, it will open a new office at 2901 E. Main St., Suite A, in Richmond, to serve Really Cool Foods and other employers.

WorkOne - the Indiana Department of Workforce Development - will administer and review the WorkKeys job skills evaluations for prospective employees.

Hiring is underway for general labor, machine operators, material handlers and warehouse workers and maintenance workers. Really Cool Foods is looking for applicants with a good work ethic, a high school diploma or GED or equivalent, and the ability to work on a drug- and tobacco-free campus.

Job-seekers may apply online at Click the Careers tab and follow the directions. Applications may be submitted from any computer with Internet access. Publicly available computers for job applicants are provided at the new Tilson HR office, any WorkOne Center or a local public library. WorkOne centers in the area include Wayne County at 3771 S. A St., Richmond; Fayette County, 701 Eastern Ave., Connersville; Henry County, 1416 Broad St., Suite 125, New Castle; and Randolph County, 325 S. Oak St., Suite 321, Winchester. Applications will not be taken at Really Cool Foods’ Cambridge City office.

Following receipt of on-line applications, applicants may be invited to participate in an information meeting during August and to complete the WorkKeys Assessment. Highly qualified applicants will then have a personal interview. Prospective employees must pass a post-offer drug screen.
