Wild Waves hiring 500 seasonal workers

It might not pay a Wall Street salary, but Federal Way's Wild Waves Theme Park plans to hire nearly 500 seasonal workers this summer.

The theme park will host an on-site job fair Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at the park at 36201 Enchanted Parkway S. to interview applicants for nearly 500 seasonal positions.

The jobs range from ride operators to food service workers, retail clerks, lifeguards, ticket takers, maintenance workers, security guards, parking attendants and human resources staffers, the park said.

Applicants must be over age 16. Interested candidates should visit the park’s Web site at www.   to learn more about the positions and to apply directly online.

Online applications must be completed by Friday in order to pre-register for an interview at the job fair, the park said.

For more information, interested applicants may contact the Wild Waves Theme Park human resources department at 253-661-8027.
