NC’s Wet’n Wild Water Park Officially Opening On May 29, Adding 600 Employees


Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe, located about an hour north of Charlotte in Greensboro, just announced it will be opening its gates to guests for the first time since Labor Day 2019, a 627-day closure caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With safety at the forefront of all activity for Wet’n Wild, recruiting staff are in the midst of a mission to hire up to 600 seasonal Team Members for departments including Lifeguards, Food & Beverage, Facilities, Retail and Sales.  The flexible positions offer part-time opportunities to high school and college students, professionals looking for a change of pace, and retirees interested in supplementing their income and staying active.

“We have opportunities that make a great fit for all career stages,” says Julia Mann, Human Resource Director for Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe. “So many young people jumpstart their career thanks to the hands-on experience you get, and it’s also a great way for senior citizens to stay connected.”

As Wet’n Wild prepares to open, the health and safety of Guests and Team Members is their top priority. The park will follow recommendations and rulings from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, North Carolina Department of Health and best practices within the amusement and attractions industries during recruitment and the operating season. Recruiters conduct interviews virtually, and in-person orientation and training will require facial coverings, strict adherence to state capacity limitations, and social distancing.

Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe begins hiring for a majority of its seasonal positions at the age of 15 years old. Perks of working at Wet’n Wild include flexible scheduling, free admission, team-building celebrations, and discounts on park food and merchandise.
