Studio C looking to fill downtown GR jobs before Sept. opening

Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — With just over a month before Studio C’s development is slated to open, the $160 million project that marks the return of movie theaters to downtown Grand Rapids is a beehive of activity.

“As you can see, everything’s still moving. I don’t think we’ve been able to sleep for the past… a year,” said Anna Driskell, talent manager for Studio C.

One block south in a third-floor office at Western Michigan University’s downtown campus, the activity is centered on recruiting, not building.

Studio C has opened up a drop-in center for people who want to work at the new development.

At least 150 jobs need to be filled for the nine-screen movie theater and restaurant, set to open Sept. 27.

A mix of full-time and part-time positions are available. Pay will range from sub- and minimum wage for server and other tipped positions, to salaried pay for leadership position, like a front of house manager. Salaries for those positions will be based on experience.

The drop-in center is located in room 3101 at 200 Ionia Ave. SW and will remain open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Aug. 23.

Studio C will also participate in the West Michigan Works job fairs on Aug. 21 at 121 Franklin Street SE in Grand Rapids, and Sept. 18 at 215 Straight Ave. NW in Grand Rapids.
