Bath Fitter is one in that group. It's looking to hire more than a dozen employees. “We need someone that’s energetic, someone bubbly, someone that can talk to people, and that can explain to them what we do,” said General Manager, Tom Guarino. Bath Fitter's hiring 10-15 brand ambassadors. They're responsible for representing the company at various events out in the community. Pay starts at $13 an hour. It's also looking for two installers, and a sales consultant. Pay varies for these positions. Guarino said experience is preferred across the board.
