Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park is Hiring 1,500 Seasonal Employees

DENVER, CO (April 15, 2014)–  With the stress of Tax Day almost over, hungry job hunters can now look ahead to exciting and fun, new prospects. Those looking for employment this summer need to look no further than Elitch Gardens, which plans to hire more than 1,500 employees for its 2014 season. On Sunday, April 27th, Elitch Gardens will hold a Job Fair from 10 A.M. until 4 P.M. to interview and hire qualified persons on the spot. The Job Fair will be held at the Main Gate Entrance of the park, 2000 Elitch Circle, and parking will be free.

Many team members are already on board and jobs are filling fast. With less than a month until the park opens on May 3rd, more than 15 departments are looking for candidates with a variety of skill sets and experience. Immediate opportunities are available in food service, park services, ride operations, and retail.. Other opportunities are available in games, gift shop sales, aquatic operations, skilled trades and park maintenance, guest services, security, and safety. Operating on weekends and holidays throughout May and transitioning into full-season daily operation starting Memorial Day weekend, Elitch Gardens’ staffing needs will grow and fluctuate throughout the summer to reflect this season’s increased operating calendar.

“Without a doubt, Elitch Gardens is one of the best summer jobs around,” said General Manager Christopher Thorpe, “giving employees the opportunity to meet new people and have fun experiences with guests from all over Colorado.”

For the employees hired this season, 2014 will be one of the best years to join the Elitch Gardens team. The park recently announced the addition of five free concerts, three free Dive-In movies, and an all-new 7-story, steel looping thrill ride, Brain Drain. Interested applicants must visit as soon as possible and complete a Snag-a-Job application online for the department they wish to join prior to attending the Job Fair. Applicants who have not completed the online application prior to arrival will be turned away from the Job Fair.
