Pitt Community College teams up with Speedway to fill 40+ jobs

WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Pitt Community College is teaming up with Speedway to fill 40+ jobs with the nation’s second largest company-owned and -operated convenience store chain.

It’s happening Friday June 17, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Craig F. Goess Student Center Multipurpose Room.

The event is hosted by PCC Career Services. It’s a part of their ongoing effort to connect local employers with the high-quality workforce trained at the college. PCC Career Outreach Specialist Rachel Bridgers says events like this help broaden the reach and impact of PCC’s career service programs.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with Speedway for this event because we are always seeking out new opportunities to connect students with local employers,” said Bridgers, “Currently, there are more than 20 Speedway locations in the Greenville area. In order to help stimulate our local economy, we continuously engage with employers like Speedway who have a large regional impact.”

Speedway is looking for qualified individuals for retail sales positions such as customer service representative, shift leader, co-manager, and district manager. Those planning to participate are encouraged to dress professionally and bring copies of their resume.

PCC says that more than 70 percent of their graduates remain in Pitt County after completing their programs of study. PCC adds that the college and students added more than $230 million in income to the region, equating to a 16 percent return on investment for taxpayers. Through efforts like its partnership with Speedway, PCC continues to be a key player in the economic growth and support to the area.
