Flexible Scheduling

You tell us when you are available to work. Our flexibility with scheduling is a good reason to work at Amigos/Kings Classic. We need help at several peak times throughout the day and many of our locations are open late, so hours may vary. In addition, employees may work at more than one store to fill needed shifts. Our managers understand your work schedule must fit around school activities and family obligations, so you have an opportunity to request time off and complete forms indicating the hours you are available to work.

Cross-training

When you are ready, you will be cross-trained to do several jobs. Therefore, you won't get bored doing the same thing on every shift.

The Student Tuition Employment Program was created in 1986 with just two employees participating.

The program reimburses students for a percentage of their tuition based on the number of peak shifts (lunch or late night) that they are available to work. In order to qualify to be on the S.T.E.P. program each semester, employees must be employed at the start of the semester, make themselves available to work qualifying peak shifts consistently throughout the school term, and work a minimum number of hours a week.

The program is based on a point system and participants earn points for number of years worked and for working our busiest times. The point system determines the percentage of tuition that the employee is reimbursed. The maximum amount available to an employee on S.T.E.P. during a school year is $4,000.
