2016 Ironman Opportunity


Ironman Opportunity for Kona Aquatics Swimmers. 

Aloha all Kona Aquatics Swimmers! 

IRONMAN is coming back to town for the Ironman World Championships and we are again looking to hire local staff to work in our event store.

My name is Kaitlyn Ziebart and I will be organizing staff this year for the IM World Championships. The positions available in the event store are not volunteer roles, but are part time, temporary positions that are paid $12/hr. We are looking to hire 20-30 individuals with retail experience, but are willing to train just about anyone who is willing to learn, has a good attitude, is friendly and approachable and hard working.

By accepting shifts in the store as a staff member your responsibilities will include helping set up the store and displays, assisting customers with various needs and questions, restocking, packing, assist in maintaining inventories, providing security throughout the store, breaking down and packing up the store at the end of event. This is a very active work environment so it will be expected that you are willing and capable to lift heavy boxes, bend and reach often and withstand being on your feet all day. The attached document will inform you of additional details about job responsibilities, days and hours available to work, pay rate, and employment requirements. Please review the hours available for work and reply as soon as possible with the times and days you are interested in working.  I will build a schedule based on that information.  The schedule will be created on a first come first serve basis, so reply as soon as you can!

Upon hire, all staff must submit required tax forms and proof of identification prior to work shifts. In addition, all staff must attend a mandatory staff orientation meeting prior to the store opening.  Staff will be paid via a payroll check on October 30th, 2016 to the address indicated on the tax paperwork. 

Please feel free to forward to any friends or family that might be interested in working. Also, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. My mobile number is: (352) 250-1105

Mahalo! Kaitlyn Zeitart
