MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Bite Squad is looking for people to join its delivery squad. With the goal of hiring 500 drivers by the end of the year, the Minneapolis-based restaurant delivery service is hosting a Driver Hiring Day on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the company’s headquarters (905 Park Avenue) in downtown Minneapolis.

The hiring event includes full-time and part-time opportunities for both seasonal and long-term driving positions. Candidates attending the event can participate in open interviews and learn more about driving for Bite Squad.

The event is an opportunity to meet hiring managers, speak with driver associates and enjoy light refreshments in an open house atmosphere, according to a news release.

“As temperatures begin to fall, demand for the convenience of food delivery always rises,” said Kyle Hale, Chief Operating Officer for Bite Squad, in a statement. “This hiring event provides us with an opportunity to fortify our driver squad in preparation for the busy season ahead.”

Bite Squad drivers connect the city’s top restaurants with hungry customers at their homes or workplaces, and serve as the public face of the company.

Bite Squad drivers are W2 employees. The position offers a guaranteed hourly wage plus tips (up to $20 per hour), flexible scheduling and the support of both a local team and a 24/7 dispatch support team, the company said.

Interested applicants are invited to go here for more information, and are encouraged to register. All registrants for the event will be placed in a drawing to win a $250 Bite Squad Gift Card.
