Attention all carpenters, painters, artists, and prop makers! Knott’s wants to hire YOU!

Knott’s annual haunt build/construction hiring event will take place Wednesday, June 6, from 9 am to 5 pm at the Knott’s Berry Farm Employment Center in Buena Park. You must be 18 years old and a high school graduate to apply. Openings include theatrical carpenters, construction carpenters, scenic artists/painters, audio and lighting technicians, and theatrical crafts/prop masters.

This is your chance to work behind the scenes building the original Halloween Haunt. Note that actor auditions will NOT be part of this event. Actors are usually hired in August. We will post information about actor hiring when it becomes available.

Last year, we received a lot of requests for information about these build jobs–many of the requests after it was much too late. Haunt construction usually begins in July (or earlier), so make sure you apply in time!

For more information, go to Knott’s website. They recommend that you print and fill out the application beforehand and bring it with you to the hiring event.
