    What if I have worked at Fun-Plex before?

    Prior employees will not be required to go through the interview process. If you are a prior employee and would like to join us again this summer, please fill out the application form and you will be contacted by a Fun-Plex representative.

    How do I apply?

    All applications must be submitted through our online form on this page.  We do not accept paper applications.

    What happens after I apply?

    Your application will be reviewed, and if you are selected to move on in the application process, you will be contacted by a Fun-Plex representative and invited for a personal interview. Due to the amount of applications received, only candidates selected will receive additional communication from Fun-Plex.

    What are the schedules like?

    It usually isn’t a problem to accommodate a typical summer vacation or consistent activity.  Generally we ask employees to be ready to work a minimum of 20 hours per week and to be available most weekends.  We pack a lot of business into just a short time, so if your schedule is unpredictable or you need extensive time off, this may not be the job for you.

    I want to apply to work in a certain department, but I don’t want to work anywhere else. Is that okay?

    Nope, we are a team!  While you will spend the majority of your time in your home department, all employees should expect to spend at least a few shifts working in other parts of the park.

    You don’t have to be young… just young at heart!

    Are you a teacher, parent, retiree, or have summers off? Our job opportunities are not just for teenagers and college students. If you’re interested in making new friends, working outside, and earning some extra cash, then Fun-Plex may have a position for you! We have opportunities in all departments, and pay rates can be negotiable for those in leadership roles or with additional experience.
