Silverwood to hire 1,300 employees

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Hundreds of people visited the Kootenai County Fairgrounds on Saturday for the Silverwood Job Fair.

Silverwood Theme Park is hoping to hire a total 1,300 people. Most of the available positions are seasonal, May to October, but they are looking to fill some full-time positions as well.

"It's a great summer job, it's fun, they can earn free tickets for their friends and family, and it's a great first job for those who are looking for a first job," said John Jachim, of Silverwood.

There are still plenty of opportunities to apply to work at Silverwood. Applicants can go online to and fill out an application, or go to one of the two remaining job fairs. Job fairs will be held at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds April 5 and 9 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
