Minneapolis, MN (March 2, 2016) – With less than six months to completion, U.S. Bank Stadium is preparing to open the iconic glass doors to a large variety of special events including Luke Bryan’s “Kill the Lights Tour.” With over 66,000 seats and six diverse club spaces, the stadium will host the Minnesota Vikings and a number of family shows, concerts, college and high school sporting events, conventions, trade and consumer shows, corporate meetings and private events. These events are only possible with the help of thousands of part-time employees working for multiple stadium partners as the face of U.S. Bank Stadium.
U.S. Bank Stadium is hosting a hiring fair on Tuesday, April 26 – Thursday, April 28 at the Minneapolis Convention Center to secure part-time staff for all stadium events including Vikings games. Several stadium partners including SMG, the Minnesota Vikings, Aramark, Main Gate Retail, and providers for security and cleaning of the stadium will be looking for part-time employees. Over 2,500 jobs will be available in the areas of guest experience, event security, housekeeping, point-of-sale, retail, catering and food service.
“These new employees will become the face of U.S. Bank Stadium’s Minnesota hospitality,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. “There will be hundreds of public events in addition to Vikings games, and they create significant employment opportunities from guest services, to concessions, security and retail. This is another example of the ongoing economic impact this stadium has for the state.”
Applying for the event is highly recommended as candidates will be pre-screened in advance of the hiring fair. Online applications are available now at usbankstadium.com and applications will be accepted until Friday, April 15 at 11:59 pm.
