"Our employees love working at the beach and making friends in a fun environment." 

The Boardwalk offers many incentives and activities for employees, including a free employee shuttle from Watsonville, discount Metro Bus tickets, discounts to other Bay Area parks and attractions, discount movie passes, free parking and bike lockers, employee outings and parties, and team sports tournaments.
