Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari officials have begun hiring to fill over 2,200 positions to meet the needs of the 2024 season. Applications are now live and dozens of dates are set for in-person and virtual hiring events.
Individuals must be at least 14 years old to apply, though the majority of positions require individuals to be at least 16 years old. Officials said team member return rates hit a record high in 2023, and they expect even fewer spots for first-time team members in 2024. Interested first-time applicants are encouraged to apply early.
Candidates can visit HolidayWorld.com/Jobs to fill out an application and set up a phone interview, or to learn more. During hiring events, prospective first-time team members will have 15-minute phone interviews with park management.
“We offer flexible scheduling, and our team members are active members of their communities and schools,” said Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari President & CEO Matt Eckert. “We keep the interview process simple to match that, and we even visit nearby cities where we offer transportation, such as Evansville and Owensboro, to interview and onboard team members.”
Adults seeking seasonal employment, such as retirees and teachers, are also encouraged to apply. Team member housing is available on a limited basis; applicants must be at least 18 years old or older to apply, and must live at least 50 miles away from Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari.
