I realize times have changed, but I do remember being 16 making $6 an hour working at a bowling alley. So $17.40 an hour sounds pretty amazing for a kid looking to make some cash this summer.

Elitch Gardens is now hiring 1,500 people aged 16 and up to work in any department. According to the company, employees are offered flexible schedules, pay starting at $17.40 an hour, free park admission on off days, free tickets for friends and family, and exclusive employee ride nights.

The water and theme park is hiring team members for positions in rides, aquatics, food service, games, retail, security, maintenance, and internships. Plus, no experience is required.

Elitch Gardens is holding a hiring fair Saturday, March 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and you could get hired on the spot. The fair is located at the Front Entry Pavilion at 2000 Elitch Cir.

If you can’t attend the job fair, you can apply anytime on Elitch Gardens’ website.

The park will open for the season on April 22.
