Delaware River and Bay Authority officials have scheduled a job fair to take place inside the Lewes Terminal of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry from 9 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, March 29. The purpose of the job fair is to attract qualified applicants for seasonal/casual positions in various departments, including Customer Service, Food and Retail. During the busy summer season, the ferry hires more than 250 seasonal employees.
“Last year, we held our first ever job fair inside the Lewes terminal, and it was very successful,” said Heath Gehrke, director of Ferry Operations. “The ferry is an employer of choice, and this event is a great opportunity for prospective candidates to speak with our hiring managers and apply onsite. Whether on land or aboard a vessel, you can’t beat a summer job at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.”
The Cape May-Lewes Ferry has nearly 80 seasonal positions currently available, including food and retail associates, line and prep cooks, servers, customer service representatives, bartenders, warehouse workers and porters. Some supervisory seasonal positions are also available. The authority is actively seeking local residents to fill seasonal jobs at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.
The job fair will be held inside the Lewes terminal at 43 Cape Henlopen Drive. A welcome table with job postings will be set up, and candidates will be directed to the second floor of the terminal building to meet with hiring managers to be interviewed on the spot.
Candidates will be able to complete applications online inside the administration building and are subject to background checks.
The DRBA is an equal opportunity employer.
