Holiday World Seeks 2,200 Team Members for Good Gravy! Inaugural Season

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 for Team Members conveniently to interview and onboard in a town near them.

 During hiring events, prospective first-time Team Members will have 15-minute phone interviews with park management. Many departments fill positions early–especially for 14- and 15-year-olds, so interested candidates should visit as soon as possible to fill out an application and set up a phone interview.

“We offer flexible scheduling, and our Team Members are active members of their communities and schools,” says 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.” 

Holiday World already offers several job perks for seasonal Team Members including:

  • A personal Season Pass
  • 50% off food
  • 20% off merchandise
  • Employee parties with exclusive ride time
  • Free access to other amusement parks and attractions in the area
  • Earn points for tickets, food, and prizes
  • Two free uniforms
  • Access to Employee Transportation program for a nominal fee
  • $13 starting wage for individuals 16 and older
  • Earn weekly points for Holiday World tickets, food, and prizes
  • NEW in 2024: $13 starting wage for Lifeguards 15 and older

“With the addition of Good Gravy! this year, our Attractions team is going to need more people than ever,” adds Eckert. “People from around the country are excited to come to Santa Claus, Indiana just for our new coaster, and we’re making sure our team is fully staffed and ready to deliver an excellent experience.”

Individuals must be at least 14 years old to apply, however, the majority of positions require individuals at least 16 or older. Team Member return rates hit a record high in 2023, and the park expects even fewer spots for first-time Team Members in 2024.  Interested first-time applicants should apply early.

Adults seeking seasonal employment, such as retirees and teachers, are encouraged to apply. Team Members 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.
