Officials with Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari say they're looking to fill 2,200 positions for the theme park's 2021 season.
Over the weekend, Holiday World will be hosting its first-ever virtual hiring event, and plans to interview 750 prospective Team Members.
The park says that with the growing number of people expected to travel in 2021, the park's expected number of available positions has been increased from 2,000 to 2,200 this season.
“We’re still uncertain what our 2021 Season will bring,” says Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari President & CEO Matt Eckert. “We suspect a surge of interest in travel may arrive by mid-season, and we want to be prepared.”
The weekend-long Virtual Hiring Event will give prospective Team Members an opportunity to schedule 15-minute phone interviews and chat online with Human Resources representatives to ask questions and learn more about working for Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. Interview times are still available, and interested candidates should visit HolidayWorldJobs.com to fill out an application and set up their time for a phone interview.
Holiday World says that seasonal benefits include a personal Season Pass, park food and merchandise discounts, employee parties, incentive and awards programs, free admission to other parks, referral perks, flexible scheduling, and more. Starting pay for those 18 and older is $10 per hour and all employees are eligible for two free uniforms. Special classroom perks are available for educators.
Most of the park’s seasonal positions are available to applicants who will be 16 years and older by April. A limited number of jobs require a minimum age of 14 years on the date of application.
Retirees, educators, and other adults seeking seasonal employment are also encouraged to apply. The departments with the most positions available are Food & Beverage, Ride Operations, Lifeguards, and Cleaning.
