Great Wolf wants to hire 600 people to work at its new Bloomington hotel and waterpark

Positions range from lifeguards to managers to retail.

Great Wolf Lodge is hoping to hire hundreds of people ahead of its mid-December opening. 

The 404-room hotel and 75,000-square-foot indoor waterpark – which is replacing the former Water Park of America in Bloomington near Mall of America – is set to open Dec. 15, 2017

But before it can, it needs to hire nearly 600 people for jobs ranging from lifeguards to ropes course supervisors, to chefs, housekeepers, maintenance workers, retail, human resources, and managers, a news release says.

“Each Pack Member is an integral part of the Great Wolf Lodge experience, and we’re seeking enthusiastic candidates who want to help create lasting family memories by providing exceptional guest service," Angela Reed, the resort’s general manager, said in the release.

In addition to the hotel and waterpark, Great Wolf Lodge Minnesota will have a ropes course, mini bowling, an arcade, a rock wall, a spa for kids, and several restaurants. 

How to apply

Great Wolf Lodge will also be hosting two job fairs in hopes of filling the open positions. 

The hiring events will be held at the Parkview Meeting and Event Center in Mall of America.

The first will be Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (this will happen at the same time as the South Metro Job Fair, which will be held in Mall of America's Rotunda). 

The second will be on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

During the job fair, Great Wolf will hold special auditions for people who are interested in working on the Great Wolf Lodge Kids Experience team, which oversees activities for kids, like dance parties, storytime, and seasonal celebrations.
