In need of a job? Look no further than Six Flags in Jackson, New Jersey.

Last month, Jen Ursillo wrote about how the theme parks are offering "premium wages," offering up to $20 per hour for ride operators and $16-18 per hour for other positions. You can read that here.

To speed up their search efforts, the park is holding a hiring blitz by hosting their National Hiring Week now through this Sunday, May 1.

Between Great Adventure, Hurricane Harbor, and the Wild Safari, Six Flags in Jackson is looking to fill 4,000 positions by January.

Available positions for Great Adventure include security, food and beverage operations, games, admissions, and guest relations. The Safari is looking for gatekeepers and guides. Meanwhile Hurricane Harbor is always looking for lifeguards.

The company also offers discounts for park admittance, paid internships, team events, and flexible scheduling.
