The fun doesn’t stop when you clock out. Here are some of the job perks here at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari:

Race to Refer

The race is on to refer friends and family to work with you at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari.

The more they work, the more you’ll earn. You’ll accrue HoliPoints based on how many hours they work during each pay period.

Here’s how many points you’ll be able to earn based on those hours worked:

Tier 4 51 76 80
Tier 5 77 + 100

Full-Time Referrals Are Here!

  • Refer a candidate who is hired into a full-time position and earn 1,000 HoliPoints after their first day of work.
  • New hire must list Referrer’s name on their application or notify the Human Resources department during the onboarding process.
  • New hire can’t be a current Seasonal Team Member or can’t have worked for Koch Development Corporation within the past 3 years.
  • Active Seasonal, Part-time & Full-time Employees are eligible to receive the HoliPoint bonus.
  • Hiring Managers are not eligible to receive the incentive for someone they are responsible for hiring into their own department.

Teacher Perks

Teachers and Teacher Assistants are eligible for gift cards for their classrooms.
