Looking for a late-summer job? The Minnesota State Fair is hiring.

The Great Minnesota Get-Together will be holding its fourth annual State Fair Job Fair on Wednesday, July 10, between 4-8 p.m. at the Progress Center on the fairgrounds.

The fair is looking to fill 500 positions in various departments and for various vendors that will all be available during the event.

You can expect a wait if you're applying. The State Fair says the line of applicants will start forming at 3 p.m. outside the Progress Center, but everyone will be seen provided they're in line by 7:45 p.m.

So what else to expect? Applicants will initially meet with a State Fair representative to see if their personal interests, availaibilty and experience match an open position.

If they do, a fair department or a vendor will interview them, with resumes not required from applicants.

Positions available could include ticket selling and taking, parking and Park & Ride attendants, food service, rides and games, barn attendants, retail sales, custodians and public safety, among others.

Pay will range from $9.86 to $11 per hour, with each employee getting free State Fair admission for the duration of the event.

Applicants must be at least 16 and available to work all 12 days of the fair, with shifts typically between 6 and 12 hours long.
