Ahead of its second season, Wet ’n’ Wild Las Vegas has begun accepting applications for more than 450 seasonal jobs at the water park, which opens April 12 and operates through September.
This year’s hiring wave has increased by more than 100 listings from last summer’s inaugural season. Positions are open in 22 areas, including lifeguards, retail, food and beverage, security, maintenance and admission. The park also is seeking a number of supervisors. All positions are seasonal, with the exception of a full-time job opening in the company’s marketing department.
Applicants must be at least 16 or 18 years old, depending on the job. Interested parties can apply online through the Wet ’n’ Wild website and will be contacted by park management for interviews.
“We’re looking for enthusiastic people to join the Wet ’n’ Wild Las Vegas team as we prepare for our exciting second season to welcome back guests and greet new visitors to the park,” Trevor Wilson, the park’s head of marketing, said in a statement today. “We had a great team last year and look forward to many of those employees returning in addition to the many others to round out our expanded staff.”
The upcoming season at the 20-acre park, which opened its location at Sunset Road and Fort Apache Road last May, will feature several new amenities, including a new water slide, extended hours and a longer operating season.
Meanwhile, Henderson’s long-delayed Cowabunga Bay water park is scheduled to open May 24 after a year's postponement due to construction setbacks. The 23-acre attraction at Gibson Road and Galleria Drive plans to offer more than 300 seasonal positions for its debut season, with employment applications available beginning next month, according to its website.
Hiring managers will accept applications in person onsite at the park, which is still under construction, from March 11-21. For more details and application information, visit the Cowabunga Bay website.
