Valleyfair is looking to hire 2,000 new associates for the 2019 season. A diverse range of job opportunities are available in all areas of park operation. Whether it’s rides, food & beverage, security, admissions, EMTs and lifeguards, retail or other positions, Valleyfair has a spot for all job-seekers.

“At Valleyfair, we have a great variety of jobs to offer, which means we can offer opportunities that are a wonderful fit for each person’s unique skills, talents, and personality,” Melissa Lutz, Human Resources Director, said, “We offer flexible schedules that are great for students, teachers, parents, retirees, and part-time job seekers.”

2019 brings an increase in wages, with select positions starting at $12.00 an hour, and a more modernized dress code that allows originality while working. Benefits include free admission to Valleyfair and all Cedar Fair parks and waterparks, scholarship opportunities, discounts on food and merchandise, employee-only ride nights, and more.

Valleyfair offers ‘choose-your-own-hours’ scheduling allowing employees to work as many or as few hours as desired. In choosing to make Valleyfair their employer of choice, Minnesotans can develop essential and transferable skills including communication, work ethic, and leadership. Most of the park’s seasonal positions are available to applicants who are 16 years and older. A limited number of jobs require a minimum age of 14 years.

Valleyfair will hold open interviews from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on February 2, 16, and 23. Feel free to drop by and make this your best summer ever at Valleyfair!

A limited number of positions are available in all departments, and those positions can fill up quickly. Visit Valleyfair.com/jobs to apply for open positions. Valleyfair opens for the 2019 season on Saturday, May 11, 2019, and the full operating calendar can be found online at Valleyfair.com.
