Welcome to our Virtual Hiring Event!

What’s a virtual hiring event? It’s a weekend where we’ll be setting up 15-minute interviews with our prospective Team Members, and we’ll be answering questions you may have about working at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. As we always say, it’s not a matter of if you should work here, it’s a matter of where. We’re here to help you find the perfect Starring Role this year!

I’m not ready to apply yet

That’s ok! Take your time and read up on what jobs are available, and what perks are available when you work here. If you’re worried you might not have all the information you need, it’s really simple! All you need to know is your first and last name, date of birth, phone number, and email address–that’s the whole application! Remember, you have to be at least 14 years old to fill out the application. After you set up your interview and get your offer, then we’ll need more information–which is outlined here. If you’re still trying to figure out how you’ll be able to make it to work, visit our Transportation Page to see if you might be able to make it to a nearby stop. 

Still have questions? Feel free to email us at HR@holidayworld.com, call us at (812) 937-5252, or send us a message on Instagram or Facebook

I’ve applied, what happens now?

First of all, thanks for applying! We’re so excited you’re interested in joining our team! You should have received an email confirmation for your application, if you can’t find it, check your spam folder, etc. to see if it went to the wrong place. We’ll send you an email soon where you can register for a specific time for a short, 15-minute phone interview during our first Virtual Hiring Event: February 26-28. 

How do I schedule my interview time?

You should have received an email with a link to set up your interview time. Click on the link and follow the instructions there–just make sure sure you check your schedule first! 

Appointments can be scheduled at the following times (due to their popularity, certain times may not be available): 

  • Friday, February 26: 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm 
  • Saturday, February 27: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Sunday February 28: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

I’ve set up my interview time, what can I do to prepare?

Now is a GREAT time to do one last scan of the different departments we have available. If you’re under 18, make sure you pay special attention to which jobs are available for your age group. Check the descriptions and make sure the department you’re interested in fits your needs–for example, if you love to be out and walking, you might make an excellent Sweeper! 

If you’re nervous about the interview, try asking a friend or family member to help you practice. Some questions that might come up are:

  • “What do you like to do in your free time?”
  • “How would your friends or family describe you?” 
  • “What would make you a perfect fit at Holiday World?” 
  • “Which departments interest you the most at Holiday World?”

Recheck your information–make sure you can answer a call at the phone number you provided, and make sure your voice mailbox isn’t full. If we can’t reach you, we’ll leave you a message. 

Prepare your physical space for the interview: make sure you can find a quiet space so we can hear you, and make sure your phone is charged and ready for the call you scheduled. 

What we’re looking for is simple: we want fun, engaged Team Members who are ready to make each Guest’s day a little brighter.

I completed my interview, now what?

Thanks for taking the time to speak with us about the opportunities we have for you here at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. You will receive communication about the next steps within 1 week of your phone interview. If you haven’t heard anything in that timeframe, please give our HR team a shout at 812-937-5252 or by emailing hr@holidayworld.com.

  • What if I’m not available the weekend of the 26-28th? We have another Virtual Hiring Event in March, but go ahead and send us a direct message on Instagram or Facebook, send us an email at HR@HolidayWorld.com, or call us at (812) 937-5252. We’ll try and get an earlier time scheduled for you.  
  • I missed my call! Now what? Check your phone for a voicemail and try to call back if you notice within a few minutes. If your window has passed, send us a direct message on Instagram or Facebook, send us an email at HR@HolidayWorld.com, or call us at (812) 937-5252.  
  • What phone number will call me? It may vary–most calls will come from (812) 937-4401. If you miss a call from us, be sure to check your voicemail for the correct number to dial back. 
  • I need to update my phone number for my interview. We don’t want to miss contacting you, so go ahead and send us a direct message on Instagram or Facebook, send us an email at HR@HolidayWorld.com, or call us at (812) 937-5252.  
  • Can my parent/loved one help me interview or answer questions for me? We’re interested in getting to know you, so we want to hear from you! If a parent or loved one wants to help you, have them ask you the interview questions above as a practice interview. 
  • I am unable to participate in a phone call.  Please message us on Instagram or Facebook, or send us an email at HR@HolidayWorld.com and we’ll accommodate your needs as best we can. 
  • Should I be nervous? Absolutely not! We’re just here to help you find where you fit best. 
  • Is this a video call? It’s just a phone call–you can do your whole interview in your pajamas if you want… though it might put you in a better frame of mind to get dressed like it’s an in-person interview
