If you grew up in the Hastings-Sunrise neighbourhood or surrounding area, there’s a good chance you once worked at the PNE – or at least know someone who did. That’s because every year we interview thousands of people and hire to fill a variety of positions that help make Playland, Fright Nights, and, of course, The Fair a reality.
Salina, an HR Generalist, began her career with the PNE 3 years ago and has loved where her job has led her. “The staff at the PNE is amazing, and working here is like being with an extended family. The number of employees I have been able to meet is astounding, and the best thing about that is that every year employees are reaching amazing milestones with the company ranging anywhere from 20-50 years of service with the organization,” Salina says.
Apart from the great people who work here, Salina appreciates the new perspective her position has offered her as well. “My favorite part of working in HR is being able to be a part of the PNE and everything that we bring toward the community and the city as a whole. The concerts, events, Giants games, Playland, Fright Nights and of course The Fair all require a lot of planning and coordination in terms of hiring the right candidates, and being able to contribute toward that has been amazing.”
Whether you’re in HR, marketing, operations or are still a student – new positions open up all year and there are lots of seasonal positions available that help make the PNE the largest employer of youth in BC.
