Now that stadiums are returning to 100% capacity amid the COVID-19 pandemic, they need to hire workers. 

U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis said Wednesday it is looking to hire nearly 1,500 part-time workers to support the upcoming events season, including Minnesota Vikings football, concerts and family shows. 

“It’s time to get back to hosting the events Minnesotans love at U.S. Bank Stadium, including Minnesota Vikings football this fall,” John Drum, general manager for ASM Global at U.S. Bank Stadium, said in a statement. “It takes thousands of team members to support major events at the stadium. All SKOL Service Partners are looking for excited members of the community to join our team and be a part of our legacy of providing great event experiences.”

Positions include guest experience reps, cashiers, cooks, warehouse workers, food service and stand workers, and event security. 

Starting pay is $14.25/hour and people have to commit to a minimum of 15-20 events per year. Workers also get to park free during their shift and get a meal, among other perks. 

U.S. Bank Stadium SKOL Service Partners is hosting an in-person job fair on Wednesday, June 2, at the stadium. Virtual interviews will also be available. You can view the job openings here

These openings come as employers across the country are struggling to fill open positions as things open back up now that more people are vaccinated against COVID-19. The Associated Press looked into this, noting some people are worried about catching the virus, some would prefer to take advantage of unemployment benefits that are higher during the pandemic, and others aren't able to work because of child care issues. 

U.S. Bank Stadium typically hires 3,000 workers for its event seasons.
