University of Oregon: DUCK Football
Alaska State Fair
Oregon State Fair
Edgefield: Panic at the DIsco
Thank you to all of our employees that are working this weekend. Our success would not be possible without you. We are always looking for more help. With over 1500+ staff working alone this weekend, we are always looking for our team to grow. If you are interested please apply on our website.
One of the most exciting things about CMS is the opportunity for students and young professionals to build their resume, and set themselves apart from other applicants while pursuing a career.
In our first segment of what we are calling CMS SUCCESS, we would like to recognize former employee Griffin Squires.

We will represent you well in your future endeavors and help set you apart! Thank you for your service to our company Griffin, and good luck with your career!
