Worker Shortage At Target Field
Mat Hoy, Senior Vice President of Operations for the Minnesota Twins, says they have jobs available but can't get the people.
According to a Star Tribune report, they have been having to bus workers in from out of state to have enough people for the games. Delaware North Sportservice, which manages the concessions and vendors, is going to be holding a job fair Thursday, April 21, and April 28, from 2-7PM. They need food workers, in-seat vendors, stand attendants, bussers and dishwashers. Shifts run 6-9 hours and you can choose the games you want to work. Pay starts at $12.30 per hour for the union jobs that are available.
Usually if you show up and you look like you want the job, they will hire you. But then many people do not come back for training. The jobs require a person to complete nine hours of training covering food safety and laws concerning alcohol sales.
Applicants should enter Target Field on the job fair days on the south side of the building at the intersection of Seventh Street and Twins Way, near the west end of Parking Ramp A. Call (612) 659-3974 for more information.
A job fair is also being held starting Tuesday, April 26, at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the new Vikings stadium.
