In an ongoing effort to address recent staffing challenges for attracting new hires, as well as retaining current part-time employees, the Canton Board of Trustees approved a $2.50 hourly wage incentive on July 13, 2021, that is currently in effect through December 31, 2021.
A variety of part-time positions are eligible for this hourly wage incentive to help address the local market’s recent hiring challenges. This initiative was undertaken to encourage new hires to become township staff, as well as help retain Canton’s dedicated current workforce.
“Over the past few years, we have experienced challenges with filling several of our part-time and seasonal positions, but there is a significant lack of individuals coming forward to apply this year,” stated Greg Hohenberger, Canton Leisure Services Director. “Important steps such as this temporary part-time wage incentive will certainly go a long way in helping us recruit and retain more workers to weather this current situation that is, unfortunately, mirroring many of the national hiring trends.”
At this time the township is hiring a variety of part-time and seasonal positions. If you enjoy a fast-paced, exciting work environment, don't miss this opportunity to join a great team! Open positions may include: Pheasant Run Golf Club Grill Cook; Teen Services staff; Lifeguards; Summit on the Park staff; Therapeutic Recreation staff; Park Laborers; Pheasant Run Golf Course staff; Custodial staff; Canton Sports Center staff; and more!

In addition, Canton Township has also implemented a Referral Incentive Program, where any current township employee can receive $100 for recruiting a part-time, seasonal, or variable employee from now until December 31, 2021. To receive this special incentive, any potential recruits must list the township employee on their applications and work 250 hours within the first 6-months of employment with the township. Township employees can earn an unlimited number of referral bonuses.
