Edmonton Eskimos

Do you…

  • enjoy fun and energetic service?
  • have community spirit?
  • enjoy getting to know your customers?

The Sawmill and Edmonton Eskimo Football Club needs…

  • Servers
  • Bartenders
  • Supervisors
  • Set up and Tear down (afternoon set up?)
  • Shipper/Receivers

This is an opportunity like no other.

We need reliable, conscientious, hard working employees to staff Edmonton Eskimo Football Games.

Are You Up to the Challenge?

With no on-site kitchen at the facility, the catering staff works within a very restricted space. Our team works diligently within detailed timelines for set up and tear down to ensure that the operation runs smoothly and efficiently.

The Best of Both Worlds


Green & Gold Room

The Green & Gold Room is Commonwealth’s 2nd floor gymnasium, which is transformed an 800-guest banquet room. Corporations or individual season ticket holders purchase most tables. The meal is served before kickoff and guests are invited to return at half time or following the game. An amazing buffet includes our chocolate fountain and ice cream sundae dessert stations. Food is prepared at the Sawmill Banquet & Catering Centre and delivered in refrigerated trucks and high efficiency warmers. The Eskimo administration would like servers to establish a rapport with regular clientele and have asked for similar sections to be assigned each game.

Directors Clubs

East Directors Club serves a small buffet for private functions and the West Directors Club with a stand up reception area for seat holders and VIP’s. Both clubs have a window view of the field from the end zone.


Tailgate Parties

Held under an open-sided tent the end zone, this area gives fans a party atmosphere while they cheer on the team from field level. Our culinary team hosts an on-site barbeque, with pre-purchased passes and a cash bar. Upwards of 1400 guests have attended a single game, with the average being 750.
