The excitement of a new Blue Wahoos baseball season, a new era, includes a welcome challenge for the organization to find game day staff members.

That is why an April 6-7 Job Fair at the stadium, which encompasses part-time positions within the Studer Family of Companies, is a needed two-day venture. The job-seeking event is open to all area residents who meet legal working age requirements in Florida.

There are a multitude of positions available within the Blue Wahoos, as well as Bubba’s Sweet Spot and Bodacious Shops on Palafox Street, plus the new Oyster Bay Boutique Hotel on Bayfront Parkway. The event at the stadium will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. each day and job-seekers will be given an application form to complete before interviews.

A majority of positions for Blue Wahoos games will be in food and beverage, helping to operate the stadium’s massive concession operation.

“We need as many folks as we can get our hands on,” said Candice Miller, human resources director. “We’re back. We are ready to play ball. We are committed to playing. And we will also do it in a safe manner.

“We are ready to help some of the people who have not been able to get back to work to get to work with us. They will get to experience our culture and everything we are about.”

When the Blue Wahoos play their 2021 home opener on May 11 against the Birmingham Barons, it will be the first Blue Wahoos game since September 7, 2019 – a span of nearly 20 months.

The first impact of the global coronavirus pandemic in March 2020 wiped out all of last season across Minor League Baseball. The Blue Wahoos held a job fair a year ago before the season was cancelled.

“It is a different experience than it has been,” said Miller, referring to changing times from all other Blue Wahoos seasons. “I am hoping we can get some good quality, customer-oriented people to come out and express the interest we are looking for… and to match them up with the right departments.

“It is so important to get these jobs filled, so we can provide the level of service that we are known for doing year afer year,” she said.

Applicants attending the job fair are asked to dress for a job interview, along with presenting a resume that includes contact information, education history, job experience and references. Candidates will be interviewed for all SFOC positions by members of the company staff.

Masks will be mandatory. Physical distance will be maintained. Other COVID-19 related procedures will be in place.

“People who are considering working for us should understand we do have safety protocols in place,” said Danielle Djuric, SFOC human resources assistant. “And that we have procedures, standards we follow.

“We are requiring masks. We are finding alternative methods to engage fans in a crowd during Blue Wahoos games and still show them a good time. So we want to make sure everyone is safe.”
