Job opportunities at Rock Communications in Newton 

  • Human Resource assistant to our Human Resource Manager here @ Rock.  The schedule can be flexible, but Mon-Fri afternoons mostly.  This position would help file confidential employee records, help call & schedule interviews w/applicants, along with other assigned HR responsibilities.
  • Maintenance employee.  Someone with some mechanical abilities, light carpentry skills, painting, other light building maint. type projects.  This position can also be pretty flexible, but thinking once school lets out might be Mon-Fri with several light maint. projects we’re wanting to get done.  With the right individual this could easily turn into fulltime or again be a good part time job for when they’re on break on their continuing education.

Both positions would start @ $10/hr, applicants must be 18 years of age, & pass a pre/employment drug screen.
