Valley Fair

Valleyfair in Shokopee is looking to hire 2,000 new associates for the 2019 season.

A diverse range of job opportunities are available in all areas of park operation including rides, food and beverage, security, admissions, EMTs and lifeguards, retail and other positions.

“At Valleyfair, we have a great variety of jobs to offer, which means we can offer opportunities that are a wonderful fit for each person’s unique skills, talents, and personality,” Melissa Lutz, Human Resources director, said, “We offer flexible schedules that are great for students, teachers, parents, retirees and part-time job seekers.”

The new season brings an increase in wages, with select positions starting at $12 an hour, and a more modernized dress code that allows originality while working. Benefits include free admission to Valleyfair and all Cedar Fair parks and waterparks, scholarship opportunities, discounts on food and merchandise, employee-only ride nights, and more.

Valleyfair offers “choose-your-own-hours” scheduling allowing employees to work as many or as few hours as desired. Most of the park’s seasonal positions are available to applicants who are 16 years and older. A limited number of jobs require a minimum age of 14 years.

Valleyfair will hold open interviews from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 16 and Feb. 23.

Valleyfair opens for the 2019 season on May, 11, and the full operating calendar can be found online at
