Hundreds apply for work at Miller Park job fair

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Those in search of employment may find it at Milwaukee's Miller Park. With Major League Baseball season coming up, there are positions both inside and outside the ballpark.

Hundreds turned out for a job fair Saturday, March 8th in the hopes of being hired.

"I'm here because I think it would be a fun experience to work here at Miller Park," said job seeker Jonathan Smith. "I've been trying to get in for a while. You just have to keep trying."

Imperial Parking is hiring up to 75 seasonal and part-time employees.

"Our parking operation is set up into cashiering operations that collect the money and the season ticket passes and then the traffic directors that safely and effectively get the cars parked in the spaces," explained Mark Mock.

Mock says, ideally, cashier candidate should have some experience -- but a smile and some common sense are the primary requirements.

"We're the first person that a guest comes to. 'Welcome to Miller Park! That'll be $15, or $10. Enjoy the game!' You know? And then I've got people out there working with the Milwaukee police and our security to get the folks safely and efficiently out of the ballpark, as well," said Mock.

The two-day job fair ended Saturday. Nearly 50 of around 200 candidates were hired on the spot Friday. Other candidates will be receiving call backs within the next couple of weeks.
