It’s no secret folks everywhere greatly anticipate the opening of Wildwood Grove. It is, after all, the largest addition to Dollywood in our history. There is a lot to be excited about thanks to 11 new experiences for families to enjoy when they come visit. There is one more benefit to adding this many new attractions. We have a number of great new positions for friendly faces ready to join the team here at The Dollywood Company.
When Dolly first decided she wanted to start a theme park in Sevier County, she had two goals. First, she wanted visitors to come to the Smokies to experience the beauty she knew growing up as a child. Second, she wanted to give the people of this area opportunities for employment, something she knew a world-class theme park would do. Now, here we are entering our 34th season, and Dolly’s original goals still hold true.
We are looking for new employees across all of our properties to help us welcome folks to Dollywood and to East Tennessee. Positions are available on several teams like our fast-paced foods and merchandise teams, as well as park operations positions including ticketing, transportation, house and grounds, and more. Among the openings at Dollywood’s Splash Country are hospitality, lifeguard and food service positions. Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa also has a number of openings available including cooks, food service and housekeeping positions.
Job fairs are slated for Saturday, Feb. 9 and Saturday, Feb. 23 at Sevier County High School. Additional job fairs are scheduled for Saturday, March 23 at Seymour Heights Christian Church and Saturday, April 6 at Arrowhead Church in Morristown. Each job fair takes place from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Positions are available for the entire length of the 2019 operating season, as well as shorter peak season openings which are perfect for applicants looking for a fun summer job, or a position to help earn a little extra money during the Christmas holidays. Applicants must be 15 years of age or older.
