Many applicants will be hired on site and provided with dates to begin orientation and training. Job seekers can also apply online anytime at Pacific Park is an equal opportunity employer.

“As we move closer to the spring and summer seasons, it’s critical that we hire enough new employees to make sure that we’re able to provide great customer service and go above and beyond our guests’ expectations,” says Nathan Smithson, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “Pacific Park is one of Santa Monica’s largest youth employers and provides employees with a variety of opportunities including gaining valuable skills and training on the job all while working at the beach and oceanfront.”
