Hop on the Oregon Drive Less Challenge, October 1-15

PrintTune up your bike, lace your walking shoes, and grab your bus pass for RVTD’s annual Drive Less Challenge, October 1-15th! If you’re looking for a little extra motivation to try alternative transportation options around town, this week is full of prizes, events and contests to make the jump a little sweeter.

Participating is easy: register at drivelessconnect.com and start logging your trips every day. You’ll see your travel totals, arrange carpooling, and enter to win prizes. Trying to think of fun ways you can cruise around town? Hop on Medford’s Pint Rider and pedal around to breweries and bottle shops with 14 of your best friends. Just think, you can log miles and grab brews along the way!

Find new fresh-air travel routes for work and around town, and get your coworkers to log on, too, and earn your workplace status as a Regional Leader. Save yourself money and time while adding some fun and exercise to your routine, or hop on one of the fantastic RVTD busses and let someone else do the driving. Any which way you do it, have fun joining the masses of alternative transportation commuters in October, and logging all your efforts to see just how much you can save in money and CO2 emissions over two great weeks. Go forth, and ride!

Wanted: Awesome People

We’re (finally!) getting started on the finishing touches for the restaurant, and now we’re excited to begin hiring for our big, awesome brewpub team. If you’re looking for a job with rewards that include tasting and sipping, then you’re a like-minded foodie and beer-lover after our own heart, and we’d love to talk with you. Know someone who you think would be a great fit? Please send ’em our way!

Who we’re looking for at Common Block

We’re hoping to meet people who love eating good food and drinking craft beer, like we do! For our opening brewery crew, we’re looking for hard-working team players who are adaptable, driven, and independent.  And if you have extra talents, let us know – there will be lots of opportunities along the way to jump into creative roles on our brewery-building adventure.

Hiring our brewery team puts us another step toward opening our doors soon, so we’re excited to start gathering a great group of people! Here’s how to apply: print the application form, fill it out, and bring it along to any of our regular hiring orientations, Thursdays at 4pm and Saturdays at 10am. This is when we meet everyone face-to-face for about 30 minutes, offer a tour of the building, and give details on all positions. A few things to note: these are the only times we’ll be taking applications, and everyone on our service staff must be 21 and over (we’ll be making beer here after all).

You can find us downtown at the Medford Commons, next to Lithia Motors. We’re the big, green building at 315 E. 5th Street. You can visit our Home page for a map and directions, too. And by the way, since we’re still a construction zone in here, we recommend sporting clothes you don’t mind getting a little dusty!

We’re thrilled to see opening day in our sights, and can’t wait to celebrate with a great crew. We get a kick out of working with fun, motivated people, and we have a fantastic staff in place already to welcome more great coworkers. Thanks for looking, and cheers!
