Knoebels To Host Drive Through Job Fair This Weekend

As Knoebels readies its rides, food stands and games for opening day, it’s also gearing up by completing its team. The amusement park is hoping to hire 800 new team members this month and is looking to their April 10 drive through job fair to help this effort.
According to Jon Anderson, Knoebels’ Human Resources Director, the drive through job fair will take place in the main parking lot at Knoebels on Saturday, April 10, from 1-5PM.

“We’re looking forward to this new and streamlined opportunity to add to our team,” said Anderson. “Attendees will be able to meet with park managers and get hired on the spot, and can save time by exploring open positions at”

Team Knoebels is made up of students saving for a car or college books, parents who pick up a few shifts while their children work at the park, retirees who want to earn extra cash, and more.

“I started working here to supplement my full-time job as a social work supervisor due to having children in college,” said Jean McGinn, five-year food service team member. “I love meeting new people, my managers and co-workers and watching families enjoy time together!”

Based on a 40-hour workweek during the park season, 18+ year-olds can earn up to $6,750, sixteen- and seventeen-year-olds can earn up to $5,500, and fourteen- and fifteen-year-olds can earn up to $4,250. Team members can qualify for a raise each returning season.

“The flexibility of a schedule is what gave me the opportunity to work and still be available for the needs of my family. Management makes it an easy place to work.” said Dawne Frye, seven-year gift shops team member. “The appreciation the Knoebel family gives to staff and the extra benefits is beyond what most employers offer.”

In addition to a regular paycheck, team members receive exclusive perks like free admission to 15+ other parks; exclusive team member events; food coupons and ride tickets in paychecks; 25% off park food; 25% off ride tickets; a discount at Nickle Plate Bar & Grill and Three Ponds Golf Course; 18% off Verizon plans; and scholarships for school aged team members.

School aged workers are required to have working papers. Pay rates vary, with ride operators being offered a higher rate. For more information or to apply online, visit
