Job Details

Job Description: Game Operator

This job falls into one or both of two different categories of employment- either “seasonal” or “variable hours”.  Most employment at Knoebels is seasonal employment. This means the duration of the job will customarily be six months or less.  Some employment at Knoebels may customarily extend beyond six months and this employment is typically classified as variable hour employment.  The employment is considered variable hour employment because average weekly hours cannot reasonably be anticipated at the time of hire due to uncertainty of the work schedule (e.g. weather, fluctuating staffing needs, etc.).
