Carlsbad-based Rubio’s Restaurants, now in five states and about 200 stores, said it needs to fill about 3,000 positions as it enters the busy summer season, and is holding job fairs next week to find the right team members.

The 29 job fairs include three in San Diego on April 23 at its Encinitas, Carlsbad, and Mission Gorge locations. On April 26 there’s job fairs scheduled at its Point Loma, Kearny Mesa and Sorrento Mesa locations. All of the fairs start at 9 a.m.

The company said it’s seeking “energetic, driven individuals,” in the jobs of guest service agents, cooks, and restaurant managers.
