Hot Jobs 69: Working at a Theme Park this Summer

Welcome to the Wednesday hot jobs post! Are you a regular of this feature or a newbie? If this is your first time at Hot Jobs day, let me welcome you! I’m glad you made it here.

Every Wednesday, I tell you about three of the hottest leads for jobs over at our JobMonkey Job Center. Don’t know what the Job Center is? That’s JobMonkey’s free resource for job seekers, with hundreds of job openings posted every day, from every imaginable field and in every state in the union — and many countries abroad, too.

This week, I’m focusing on the fun jobs at amusement parks and theme parks. Many people think of theme park jobs as part-time gigs for college students home on break. And while there are plenty of those opportunities (including a couple in today’s Hot Jobs posting), amusement parks hire full-time employees, too. Not all parks are open year-round, but those that are need staffers out in the park and behind the scenes in the “back office” to make sure the operation is running smoothly. If you want to learn more about working at this “thrilling” field, be sure to check out our section on Theme Park Jobs.

1. Water Quality Technician, LEGOLAND California, Carlsbad, CA

This is one of those year-round, full-time jobs I was telling you about. The job doesn’t have much to do with theme parks, other than the fact that you will happen to work at one… but what a cool setting for a not-so-theme-park-y job! Legoland is seeking a technician to remove, install, repair, and test all water treatment and filtration systems within the park. This includes keeping chemical balance in pools and lakes at safe health standard levels and performing other maintenance functions as required. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of the practices, tools, and equipment used in water filtration and treatment, and have experience in the basic practices of plumbing, and PVC piping application and installation.

2. Ride Attendants Job, Pacific Park , Santa Monica, CA

Now here is a more typical amusement park job! Santa Monica’s Pacific Park is seeking ride attendants (pay is $8/hour). The ideal candidate is out-going and friendly. You must smile a lot and be willing to go the extra mile to ensure that guest have a great time! You must also be able to follow operational procedures to ensure guest safety.

3. Costumer and Wardrobe Positions, Sesame Place Langhorne, PA

Would you like to work where sunny days keep the clouds away (if you don’t get the reference, this may not be the right job for you!), Sesame Place is hiring wardrobe and Costumer positions. No experience required for wardrobe jobs; costumer must have background and past experience.

Good luck with your job search this week! I hope you find the opportunity of your dreams.
