TRUSSVILLE — Half Shell Oyster House announced a newly implemented minimum wage for non-tipped employees. Starting Thursday, April 15, 2021, the restaurant chain will pay a minimum of $12 per hour to employees who are performing non-tipped duties such as expediting and opening duties,
“We believe we have a custodial responsibility to those who work for us,” said Vice President of Operations & Human Resources Kevin Fish. “The food on the table that our employees’ children eat is our responsibility and quite frankly they just can’t afford it at $7.25 an hour.”
Half Shell Oyster House raised the minimum wage to $11 an hour in 2020.
The company has also implemented the “Bring a Friend to Work” bounty program. Employees who refer a friend to apply and complete training get $200. If the new employee stays for 30 days, the employee receives $300.
All locations are hiring. You can apply online at https://www.halfshelloysterhouse.com/ or apply in person Monday – Friday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at all locations.
