SCOTTSDALE, AZ — The Great Wolf Lodge hotel and indoor water park is scheduled to open on September 27, 2019.

Ahead of the opening, the resort announced this week that it is looking to fill 600 positions, including managers, supervisors, housekeeping, engineering, aquatics, food and beverage, retail, guest services, entertainment ambassadors, and attractions attendants.

Some of the vacation-friendly perks: free entry to the water park and discounts on rooms.

The resort will host a week-long hiring fair, Aug. 12-17, 2019, at The Pavilions at Talking Stick shopping center, 9180 Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale, in a space next to the H&R Block. Walk-in interviews will happen between 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. each day, the resort said. (One note, the hiring fair is not at the resort because it is still under construction.)

Most entry-level positions start at $11-$13 per hour. Positions are seasonal, part-time, and full-time, the resort said.

Both part-time and full-time employees benefits include a 401K plan, paid sick time, free entry to the water park, and discounted rooms. Other full-time benefits include access to health benefits, company-paid life insurance, paid parental leave, and paid holidays and vacation.

The resort is currently under construction on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community near Loop 101 and Talking Stick Way across from Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

When it opens, it will have 350 suites, nine restaurants and food stands, including the state's only Ben and Jerry's ice cream parlor, an indoor adventure park, and an 85,000-square-foot indoor water park with water slides and rides, a wave pool, outdoor pool, and a lazy river.
