Tampa Bay Times Forum to hire 200 part time workers

Posted: Updated:

The Tampa Bay Times Forum and the Lightning are looking for some 200 part-time employees to work the remainder of the hockey season, now that the NHL lockout is over.

The forum is hosting a job fair tonight from 5-9pm.

"All the positions we're looking for are part time." Said Mary Milne, vice president of operations for the Forum. "They are front line people and they range in department from guest service, to security, to parking to housekeeping to conversion as well as all of our food and beverage area, concessions, bartenders, restaurant. " And, Milne says, you don't have to wait for the job fair to apply for one of those open positions. "The best thing to do is go onto tampabaylightning.com, there's an application process you can file on line. We're currently prescreening applicants right now and setting up times for them to interview. Walk-ins are welcome the night of the job fair the night of the job fair. They may wait a little longer but they're welcome to come. "

Vice president of communications, Bill Wickett, says this job fair really shows how important hockey is to the local economy. "Last year I think we averaged 18-thousand fans a game. So that's some 7-hundred thousand fans a year that hockey brings down into the area, if you play any playoff games it can be more." Said Wickett. "So obviously the economic impact is very big and it's great for the city of Tampa and all of Tampa Bay that we're back in action. "
