Working at Playland can be enjoyable for people from a wide span of age groups—from high school and college students, to senior citizens. Playland employees not only earn money, they also help to enhance the experiences of the amusement park’s hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.”

Positions to be filled include cashiers, ride operators, lifeguards, park management, Kiddyland ride operators, EMTs, mechanics, custodial staff, I.T. technicians, human resources interns, marketing interns, and painters. Playland’s seasonal employment runs from April through September.

Although no prior experience is required for most positions, prospective employees should have a positive attitude, enthusiasm, good communication skills and the ability to work a flexible schedule.
