Summer hire program now accepting applications
April 7, 2010
RED CLOUD GARRISON - The Civilian Personnel Advisory Center will accept summer employment applications until May 3 for family members, ages 14 - 22.
CPAC officials said the 2010 Summer Hire program, which provides jobs from May 17 for college students and June 21 for high school students is designed to provide young people an opportunity to gain and prepare for future education and career goals, while supporting the Army mission.
Jobs are available in clerical, labor, and non-hazardous work.
Salary for these positions is $5.50 per hour; however, subject to change.
"Federal Law requires all students to have a valid social security number," said Geraldine Jones, CPAC director. "Students are required to have their paychecks electronically submitted to a U.S. bank of their choice. And, no changes to student assignments will be permitted."
Students will be responsible for arranging their own transportation and only will be placed with the commuting distance of the sponsor's duty location, Jones said. Duty locations are Uijeongbu and Dongducheon, which includes USAG-Red Cloud, Camp Jackson, Camp Stanley and USAG-Casey.
Applicants for summer hire positions must be unmarried family members of active duty service members, Department of Defense civilian employees or non-appropriated fund (Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation or Army and Air Force Exchange Service) civilian.
Priority 1: all students ages 16 - 22.
Priority 2: students ages 14-15.
Applicants must submit an online application form, Jones said. Forms must be completed and submitted to the CPAC as soon as possible, but not later than June 15. Persons under the age of 18 will not be employed as caregiving personnel at child care, school-age, or youth centers. Persons aged 16 years and older may be assigned to these programs to perform clerical or labor duties. Supervisors will provide line-of-sight supervision according to DOD Instruction 1402.5 and AR 608-10.
The Summer Hire Program is designed to provide young people an opportunity to gain meaningful job experience, prepare for future educational and career goals, and support the Army mission.
