ALBANY – Add the Texas Roadhouse casual dining chain to the list of businesses that are offering a tuition reimbursement program for team members interested in pursuing a college degree. The announcement coincides with the company’s National Hiring Day event on Monday, October 25. Albany, Queensbury and Kingston locations will host events to fill both full- and part-time positions. 
Any team member working 30 hours or more weekly that qualifies for benefits will now be eligible for $5,250 in annual reimbursement for classes at an accredited university when a C average is maintained.

Several large employers have been offering tuition reimbursements to lure workers in an economy in which many jobs have gone unfilled. Amazon recently announced it would spend $1.2 billion for a program that includes tuition funding for its more than 750,000 U.S. employees starting in January.

Walmart has a similar program for its workers as do The Home Depot, Target, McDonald’s, Chipotle and Best Buy to name a few.
Potential employees can schedule online interviews at https://texasroadhouse.jobdetails.io/hiringday/. 
To reserve an interview time, register online in advance. Interviews will take place on Monday, Oct. 25, at each participating location.
