Bell’s Brewery, Inc., in partnership with Michigan-based Employment Group, will host its first Career Fair at its Comstock Brewery, 8938 Krum Ave. in Galesburg, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25.
With multiple expansion projects already in progress, Bell’s will be conducting onsite interviews for more than 100 full time and part time positions to be filled over the next year at all of its locations. 

Twenty of those positions will be filled right away in areas such as Maintenance, Packaging, Shipping and Receiving, Facilities, Housekeeping and Internet Technology, as well as the Eccentric Cafe’s Kitchen. The rest will come on board later in 2015 as future expansion projects are completed.

“This isn’t just a career fair,” said Carrie Overton, Bell’s Director of Human Resources. “It’s about adding to our family. Because of the tremendous support we have received from our community and our fans, we are growing and we need more people,” she said.

Representatives from Bell’s production and leadership teams will be on-hand to answer questions about what it is like to work at Bell’s and meet with prospective employees.

Bell’s offers a robust benefits package including health insurance plus dental and vision coverage, a very competitive 401-k program, paid vacation and personal time, wellness programs, life insurance, as well as a few other perks that come with working at a brewery.

“The Bell family takes great pride in the fact that we provide world class benefits that provide peace of mind for our employees and their families,” Overton said.
“And yes, that does include beer,” she added.

Employment Group representatives will also be reviewing applications for other jobs in the community. Those interested must bring a resume, be at least 18 years old and have reliable transportation. Tours of the brewery and light refreshments will be available during the fair.

Regularly scheduled brewery tours for the public will instead be offered at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. rather than at noon and 4 p.m.

Bell’s currently employs more than 290 people across the 20 states it distributes to.
