Lake Compounce to Boost Payrates up to $15/Hour For Preseason’s Final Hiring Push

With outlooks improving for the park’s 175th Birthday Season, park management wishes to hire an additional 900 seasonal team members to expand operating schedules closer to pre-pandemic standards. To do so, starting hourly pay rates for certain positions requiring an adult (at least 18 years old or graduating high school seniors) will now make $15 an hour at the park and be eligible for a variety of perks and bonuses.

Returning seasonal team members will receive a complimentary 2021 Basic season pass for themselves and up to three members of their immediate family as long as they apply and complete the hiring process by May 10.

“All signs point to an unforgettable summer, so we’re stepping up our recruitment efforts to attract great candidates and deliver amazing experiences for our guests,” says Lake Compounce General Manager, Larry Gorneault, Jr. “We can’t wait to get people back to work, and back to fun!”

Positions are available in all departments, with the parks’ primary focus on Lifeguards, Ride Operators, and Food & Beverage staff. In addition to the new pay rates and sign-on season passes, team members receive discounts on dining and retail, advancement and bonus opportunities based on performance, and invitations to team-building activities such as parties and movie nights.

Those interested can apply online at Lake Compounce’s 175th Birthday season begins Saturday, May 8, with the unveiling of their massive transformation of America’s oldest continuously-operating Theme Park.
