If you are in need of a job and live near the Los Angeles area, you might be in luck. That’s because the hospitality industry is desperate to find workers again, and especially in local theme parks. In fact, there’s a new report that says Universal Studios Hollywood is joining its sister park in Orlando and hiring more than 2,000 people for the summer season. Some of those positions include full-time, part-time, seasonal and professional career opportunities. Here’s what you need to know.
Universal Studios Hollywood Hiring Thousands For The Summer
Universal Studios knows that people are really wanting to get back to the parks this summer and they want to make sure that they are fully-staffed before the peak season hits. While the park was forced to make massive lay offs last year because of the months-long closure and the decline in park attendance that followed, things seem to be looking up and positive again.
Some of the park positions that are currently available are in the following departments: Attractions, Entertainment (including Production Assistants and Show Controllers), Guest Relations, Park Services, Wardrobe, Retail, Parking, and Food (including Bartenders, Baristas, Cooks, Bakers, Food Stand Attendants and Runners).
Other open professional career positions include Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Engineering, and Environmental Health & Safety.
Meanwhile, separate sources say that Universal Studios is removing social distancing signs and ending temperature checks. The company also said that it will drop mask requirements for fully vaccinated guests but will also not ask for proof of vaccination but does expect visitors to comply. Any guest who has reached the two-week mark from their last required vaccine dose is no longer required to cover up while on park grounds.
