Boardwalk’s Work & Play Program Attracts Employees Seeking Fun Rewards

SANTA CRUZ, CA (February 25, 2020) – The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is joining other amusement parks across the country - employing temporary workers to help fill the schedule in April and May. Spring and early summer are typically busy months for amusement parks and attractions, yet many students are not available to work.     

The Boardwalk aims to hire 65 employees to work fifteen, 6-hour shifts on specific dates in April and May for the program. In addition to an hourly wage, employees who work fifteen days in April and May will receive 6 Boardwalk Season Passes ($500 value) and 10 Ride Wristbands ($240 value) to share with family and friends. Jobs pay $13.00 - $13.50 per hour with positions in food service and ride operations. 

The deadline to apply is March 13. For more information visit . 

Introduced in 2019, the Boardwalk's Work & Play Program was an instant success last year. "Our Work & Play employees enjoy the fun of working at the beach for just a few weeks," said Boardwalk Employment Manager Carol Siegel. "Last year our Work & Play employees included a retired physician who always wanted to work at an amusement park; a retired financial advisor who wanted free season passes for his family; a retired couple from the Central Valley who love the Boardwalk; and a local bride-to-be who wanted to thank her bridal party with Boardwalk Passes."

In addition to the innovative Work & Play Program, the Boardwalk is already filling hundreds of other jobs in various departments throughout the company. Flexible schedules for students as well as full-time career positions are available.
