The Slows empire wants you to come work for it, and it's hoping you take the first step by coming to its hiring fair on Monday, April 7.
The Corktown-based restaurant and its Midtown-based catering service, Slows To Go, are looking to fill up to 50 positions. The leadership team behind Slows hopes the hiring fair will serve as the right kickoff to fill those positions this spring/summer as the company enters catering season.
"It's more the season we're entering that necessitates it," says Terry Perrone, managing partner of Slows
and Slows To Go
. "Plus we need the occasional labor for banquet and festival work."
The hiring fair will start at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 7 at Slows' main restaurant, 2138 Michigan Ave., in the shadow of the Michigan Central Station. Types of open jobs include line cook, server, bartender, social media coordinator and catering operator, among others. You can check out the whole list for Slows here

Slows and Slows To Go currently employ more than 200 people. "I could see an increase of 50-60 people over the summer, including occasional workers," Perrone says.
