Knoebels Job Fair Scheduled

Knoebels is hoping to hire more than 800 new seasonal team members for its amusement park, campgrounds, Crystal Pool, Three Ponds Golf Course, lumberyard and year-round restaurant.

Job fair attendees can chat with representatives from each department, fill out an application and schedule an interview.

According to Jon Anderson, Knoebels’ Human Resources Director, there are a variety of positions available. “It takes more than 2,000 team members of many talents to operate each season,” said Anderson. “The majority of positions interact directly with visitors from near and far, so we’re looking to add team members who can help us provide great customer service.”
Knoebels is happy to offer a competitive wage for both new and returning team members. Specific pay rates vary upon job function, and team members can qualify for a raise each returning season.

In addition to a regular paycheck, Knoebels offers other added benefits for team members, such as:
  • Free entry to more than 18 parks
  • Team member-only events
  • Paycheck stuffers (food coupons, ride tickets, etc.)
  • 25% off in-park food (using team member dinner dollars)
  • 25% off ride tickets
  • 10% off meals at Nickle Plate Bar & Grill
  • 5% off stock merchandise at Knoebel Lumber
  • Knoebels Scholarship Program for school aged team members

"Each year, locals join our team for a number of reasons,” said Knoebels spokesperson Stacy Ososkie. “From high school students saving up for their first car, to college students building their résumé, to individuals putting their interest in food service to use while earning a paycheck.”

While Knoebels is primarily seeking team members aged 16 and older, there are a limited number of positions available for workers aged 14 and 15. Team members 16 years of age and older can expect a starting hourly rate that is above minimum wage. School aged workers are required to have working papers when hired.
