The hiring process is a bit different at Splash Kingdom, Blevins said.
“We’re hiring youth as young as 16 who won’t have the work experience, so we ask for a report card with their application,” Blevins said. “This is their work history to this point. We will also talk with counselors and principals as well. We want good people who are willing to put away their Xboxes and phones and get some real world experience.”
Employees will have extensive training upon being hired.
“We want them to be able to interact with adults in a professional manner and represent the park and the company well,” Blevins said.
Blevins has already made one hire for the park, bringing in former employee Jessica Shilts to become client services director.
