I'd have to drive about 45 minutes(with no traffic) each way, and probably end up getting paid less than I do at my current job. It would sure be fun to do though...
is back? in black?

When I asked about the "money" issues that had happened, I was told by a rather good source that those issues would not occur this season.  They are properly funded in 2007 for the amount of resources they are hiring.  From what I hear, they are paying more to.  Take it for what its worth though because in business, anything can happen lol

I am surprised and puzzled about that.  I was new last year as well and did not get cut due to "money" issues. Maybe it was because I became third-in-charge at the coaster I worked at mid-summer.  Hopefully this season will be better regarding "money" issues like Wade is saying.

Either there were a lot of re-hires without their paperwork today, or they got a pretty decent new hire turnout at today's job fair.  They were really stressing today that things are going to be different this season.  It's a very optimistic vibe flowing through the park management, and I hope that it turns contagious.  I sure wouldn't mind the "Fun Time Flu" this summer.  Or should it be "Playtime Pneumonia"?  :D

Wish I lived closer.  It would be a fun part time job.  On the flip side, going to G.A. is always my break away from my full time job.  If I work there, I am sure that it would not be the same thing.

If I had a Scion, I would drive the distance and see if I could get like a part time night job or something, but my V8 can be such a gas hog...:(

Peterpjr, the park was still my playground, even after working all day in it. If I had a day shift (and the energy), I'd leave a change of clothes in the car so I could change and play a little after work.  I'd usually only be there for an hour or two, but a ride on El Toro puts a perfect cap on your day. :)

Always glad to see another Gadv employee that sold their soul on Saturday, lol.  I never took the bus, but I love it because without it I know I wouldn't have had some of my valuable team members last season.  I wish they had a bus that came up my way.

It seems the job fair went very well and was very successful :)  That doesn't mean they don't need even more people though!

I live outstide Philly so I think I would spend as much in gas money as I would get paid.  It does sound like fun to work there though for a part time job.

The purpose of a job fair is to get people to come to apply.  I am quite certain you do NOT need to be invited! :)

After the job faire, I really would love to work at the park but it just has no advantage of me trying to leave Staples to go there. Plus I dont wanna cut my hair. :)
