Employee Recruitment:
Recruitment for employment generally begins several months prior to each season and is a highly competitive process. Previous year employees are offered an opportunity to return and then applications are screened to fill any remaining positions. Applications are screened for minimum requirements and applicants are notified to set-up interviews. Here are a few tips to help you through the process:

  • Get your applications in early, even if the deadline is months away.
  • Your application is the first thing we see, fill it our completely and make it look great!
  • Each individual who meets the minimum requirements will not necessarily receive an interview. The information provided in the application will help to determine who receives a personal interview.
  • Two (2) written employment reference forms will be REQUIRED. So that your application may be given proper consideration, you are encouraged to submit the attached forms as part of your application.
  • Distinguish yourself by listing all applicable experience and honors you can think of! You are encouraged to attach additional sheets detailing previous experience, special skills, or any other information that may pertain to the job you are applying for.
  • List all possible positions you would like to apply for on the application!
  • If you are a college student living away from home, please attach the following information:
  • Include specific dates that you are available for an interview, weekdays if possible.
  • Provide a school mailing address, phone number and email.
  • Be as specific as possible in the "Dates Available" section on the front of the application (i.e. when you can start work, and through what date can you work).
