The Fresno Grizzlies are only two months away from opening day. Saturday they started searching for seasonal help.
Some came armed with resumes others had their pens ready to begin filling out applications. Derrell Bennett is seeking a security job and he brought a police certificate to show he's experienced. "Man I just like the environment here. A good opportunity. You know it's hard to look for jobs right now. They had a job fair and I took the opportunity."
Saturday's job fair offered 200 positions. Everything from ticket takers, ushers, security, housekeeping, bat boys and grounds crew.
Chris Kutz of the Grizzlies say it's all about first impressions. "We want everyone to be fun, energetic, ready to contribute that family friendly atmosphere that we put on here at Chukchansi Park. Be outgoing because fans want to see personal people when they walk in the gate."
Twelve hundred people submitted applications during the two hour job fair. Lamar Perry hopes he's one of the lucky ones. "I put in a good resume plus my last job was security. I was working for the Oakland Raiders games with my cousin. He got me my job so I have some history with security."
All jobs up for grabs Saturday are part–time from April thru September.
