The Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas water park began taking online applications this week for more than 300 seasonal jobs.
Positions are available in 18 areas, including admissions, life guards, food service and security. Wet ‘n’ Wild also is seeking several supervisors before opening its inaugural season on Memorial Day weekend in Summerlin.
Park management will review applications and contact candidates for interviews.
“The water park environment is a great place to work, particularly for our community’s youth who may be starting their first job,” Takuya Ohki, the park’s general manager, said in a statement today. “This also will be a great way for them to develop valuable work experience, a strong work ethic and build a foundation for their future careers.”
No year-round positions are open.
Construction, meanwhile, continues at the park on the Desert Racers and Canyon Falls slides, the main entrance, bathrooms, and food and retail areas. The park will be located at 7055 S. Fort Apache Road, near the 215 Beltway between Sunset and Warm Springs roads.
Cowabunga Bay, a water park set to open this summer in Henderson, expects to begin hiring for more than 400 positions next month. Developer Shawn Hassett said information about job openings will be posted on the park’s Facebook page. Construction is under way for that park at Galleria Drive and Gibson Road.
