Comal ISD will host a job fair Aug. 26 in an effort to hire teachers, office staff, bus drivers, custodians and after-school child care workers as the 2021-22 school year continues. It is the district's eighth job fair since May.

Job seekers can visit the district’s support services building at 1404 N. I-35, New Braunfels, from 5-7 p.m. to learn about open positions and apply.

Similar job fairs have been hosted throughout the city as employers look to fill many vacant positions.

The city of New Braunfels will host a hiring event Aug. 27 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the New Braunfels Civic and Convention Center located at 375 S. Castell Ave., New Braunfels, with the goal of hiring employees to join the solid waste and recycling division.

Applications will be accepted for solid waste operator and refuse collection positions with city staff prepared to interview and immediately hire qualified candidates during the event.


Starting pay for solid waste operators is $17 per hour and $13.50 for refuse collectors. Pay may increase depending on experience, and each position includes benefits such as health insurance, paid sick leave and vacation, overtime opportunities and paid training.

“The solid waste and recycling division has recently implemented a program that establishes specific goals for growth, training and advancement,” solid waste manager Mike Mundell said in a press release. “Through this process we want to mentor our employees, helping them to become as successful as possible and along the way develop into the future leaders of our division.”
