If you’re looking to line up a spring/summer job, don’t miss the Playland Job Fair, Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. On-the-spot interviews will be conducted at this event for the first 300 candidates to arrive. Salaries start at $12 an hour.
Rye guy and Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “A job at Playland this spring and summer can be a great fit for high-school and college students, right up to senior citizens looking to earn some money while helping park visitors have a great time.”
Positions to be filled include cashiers, ride operators, lifeguards, park management, EMTs, mechanics, custodial staff, I.T. technicians, human resources interns, and marketing interns. 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".
Applicants must be a minimum of 16 years of age. Some positions require applicants to be a minimum of 18 years of age. Applicants under age 18 who plan to complete their application prior to the job fair must have the form signed by a parent or guardian to be considered for an interview. Those under 18 who wish to complete their application onsite at the job fair must bring a parent or guardian to the event to sign the form in order for an interview to take place.
Eligible applicants who may wish to enroll for direct deposit must bring a voided blank check or a bank-issued direct deposit setup form that includes routing number and account number printed on the document.
