The Reno Aces are looking to hire nearly 100 people for the 2013 season.
Starting Friday, you can pick up a job application between 10am and noon at the Aces Ballpark Security Office or fill one out online. The deadline to turn them in is February 22.
The Aces are filling positions in guest services, ushers, security, valet attendants, custodial staff and maintenance workers.
"If you need a job and you are capable and you want to work at a ballpark, come on down here," Aces General Manager Rick Parr said. "We've got a job for you."
The part-time jobs will last for the whole baseball season, which is about six months.
They pay minimum wage and up, depending on the position.
"If you're an usher and security and different things like that, it'll be commensurate with the situation or at least the responsibilities," Parr said.
Parr says the upcoming season is a great chance for many members of the community.
The unemployment rate in the Reno-Sparks area is still 9.6%.
"They're great jobs and I know that unemployment here is very high and I know that people would be just looking forward to an opportunity like this," Parr said. "So, let's do it and let's get it done."
Levy restaurants is in charge of the stadium's food. They will begin taking applications March 1, with a job fair on March 14.
In all, the Aces will employ about 300 people.
"We want the best people we can get because we're a customer relations kind of business," Parr said. "Hey, we're all about customer service, so we want the guys that really want to work."
Last week's agreement between the City of Reno and the Aces will keep the team in Reno for at least the next 30 years. The city will pay $1 million a year.
A study shows the team has an economic impact of almost $29 million each year.
"I think we had a great big sigh of relief from the customers," Parr said. "The fans that come out to the game, I think they were just irritated with the whole situation, and now, it's kind of like 'Okay, good. Let's get that behind us and play ball.'"
In addition, applications for several other positions—including production team members, ticket-office employees, entertainment crew, and interns—are being accepted now. Job descriptions and detailed application instructions can be found at www.RenoAces.com.
The Aces kick-off the 2013 season on Thursday, April 4 in Colorado Springs, before returning to Reno for the home opener Friday, April 12. All full and partial Aces season tickets are available now by calling (775) 334-4700.
