Wild Waves seeks to fill 700 positions for summer season

Wild Waves Theme & Water Park opens weekends May 27 to June 11 and opens daily from June 16 to Sept. 4 for the summer season.

Wild Waves Theme and Water Park is partnering with Washington WorkSource for a massive hiring event from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, March 14.

The event will be held at the WorkSource Pierce County office at 2121 S. State St., Suite 300, in Tacoma. This is a unique opportunity for job seekers to take part in on-the-spot interviews with the potential for immediate job offers. All interested candidates are encouraged to register online.

Jody Kneupper, Wild Waves Theme and Water Park president, started as a lifeguard when he was a teenager and has since spent his career working in the amusement park business.

“I have worked around the country, earning my college degree and invaluable leadership experience while working in the attractions industry,” said Kneupper. “A fun summer job turned into an amazing career.”

A wide range of available roles include lifeguarding, ride operations, food service, retail, park services, and security; there is a perfect position for anyone at any skill level – from first-time job seekers to active retirees.

Employees also enjoy unique benefits such as free park admission, flexible schedules, free treats and eats on select days, and opportunities for promotion. A new on-demand pay feature also allows team members to receive a portion of their pay as soon as the next day. Many roles extend into October for Wild Waves’ Fright Fest.

Wild Waves offers a chance to develop valuable skills and leadership experience.

“As a mom, working at Wild Waves gives me a little bit of a cool factor,” said Lyna Saechao who is returning to Wild Waves for her second season in guest relations. “I get free tickets to the park, what’s cooler than that?”

“I’ll tell you what’s cooler than free tickets, having your sister come to work with you,” said Daisy Saechao who will be joining the team at Wild Waves after learning about the job from her sister, Lyna.

If unable to attend the in-person hiring event, candidates can apply via the online hiring platform that includes 24/7 interviews. View open positions at wildwaves.com/jobs and join the team.

Wild Waves Theme & Water Park opens weekends May 27 to June 11 and will be open daily from June 16 to Sept. 4 plus every Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday in October during Fright Fest.
