Silverwood looking to hire 1,200 seasonal workers

Silverwood Theme Park will hold job fairs over the next two Saturdays to find 1,200 seasonal employees to staff the park from May to October.

Job fairs will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and March 26 in Silverwood's Theatre of Illusion, in Athol.

The North Idaho theme park is offering employment to everyone from high school students to senior citizens for jobs including ride operators, housekeepers, retail positions and food and beverage workers.

Wages depend on experience and position, but range from the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour to $12 an hour, said Nancy DiGiammarco, marketing, sales and public relations director.

The park is open for six months, starting May 7 with weekend operations. Staring on Memorial Day the park is open seven days a week until Labor Day.

Workers who stay for the whole season are eligible for bonuses of 50 cents an hour in July and again in August, DiGiammarco said..

Typically, about 38 to 40 percent of those hired worked at Silverwood before, DiCiammarco said.

Applicants can visit or call (208) 683-3400 for more information. DiGiammarco said applicants who apply online can be interviewed more quickly during the job fairs.
