This time of the year, I must admit I find myself murmuring, “I’m so glad I’m not in Operations” on a daily basis.

Not loudly, though. It would get on the Operations Staff’s last nerve.

For the 2006 season, we plan to hire 1,500 Hosts & Hostesses.

That’s a lot.

Especially considering that the first “hiring” news release I wrote (back in 1992) called for 450 seasonal employees.

Operation’s “head hunters” hit the schools the week prior to the start of Job Fairs.


Jennifer is manager at Splashin’ Safari. What are the chances she recruiting a lifeguard?

Continuing on the then-and-now theme, it’s hard to believe that just a decade ago, we could hold Orientation for our employees with all of them here at the same time.

In 1995, we had everyone gather ’round that new coaster of ours (notice the queue area hadn’t been built yet) for a group photo.

This year, we’ll take two weekends to orient everyone.

Funny, the park tour takes longer and longer each year, too.
