SANDUSKY -- Cedar Point is looking to fill at least 5,000 seasonal jobs for the upcoming 2013 season.
"Our staff often give guests their first impressions of the park, and those are lasting impressions that can really impact their entire day," human resources manager Pamela Romo said. "That's why it's crucial for us to hire people with the right attitude. If they have a great work ethic and a dynamic personality, they will make sure our guests have their best day of the summer here at Cedar Point, which is our ultimate goal."
