This job description describes the general nature of the duties and requirements of this job. It is not intended to be an exhaustive list or limit the supervisor ability to modify work assignments as appropriate.

 

This job falls into one or both of two different categories of employment – either “seasonal” or “variable hour”.  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.).
