Holiday World starts hiring process | Business
Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari officials say they are about ready to begin the hiring process for the 2,100 seasonal positions available at the parks later this spring and that anyone who has yet to apply should do so as soon as possible.
The company also has two full-time openings, food and beverage manager and maintenance technician.
This season, the park will again offer an Employee Transportation Program for seasonal employees who would not otherwise have a ride to work. Available at a nominal fee, bus rides will be offered from Huntingburg, Newburgh, Evansville and Tell City, Indiana, plus Owensboro.
“We’re looking for friendly and energetic individuals who enjoy working with people,” says Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari General Manager Matt Eckert. “We’re looking for ride operators, lifeguards, sweepers, plus staff for admissions, shops, games and foods. We’re like a small city – we have quite a variety of jobs available.”
Most positions are available to applicants 16 years and older by May 2012. A limited number of additional jobs require a minimum age of 14 years by May. Applicants must be at least 14 years old on the date the online application is submitted. Retirees and other adults seeking seasonal employment are also encouraged to apply.
To apply, job seekers should fill out an online application, available at www.HolidayWorld.com/Jobs.
First-year employees will earn a base rate of $7.25 to $8.15 an hour. Benefits include a personal Season Pass, park food and merchandise discounts, free soft drinks, employee parties, weekly incentive programs, free admission to other parks, and more.
