Universal Orlando Resort is hosting a job fair on September 8 in order to recruit F&B employees for Halloween Horror Nights (HHN), which kicks off later this week on September 3.

“It takes a special kind of person with motivation and passion to bring together the cuisine and dining experiences for our guests during this world’s premier Halloween event,” Universal Orlando said.

The job fair will take place between 11am and 7pm on September 8. The event is being held at Universal Orlando’s human resources office at 1000 Universal Studios Plaza.

Earlier this year, Universal Orlando announced it was increasing its starting base rate from $13 per hour to $15 per hour, effective from June 27.

The base rate for F&B roles at Halloween Horror Nights starts at $15 per hour, while new culinary rates start from $15.50 up to $18.75 per hour.

Universal Orlando has full-time and part-time positions for all roles. The resort notes that “any candidate offered a position will need to have an active application completed for an offer of employment to be finalised”.

“Due to the nature and hours of Halloween Horror Nights, this opportunity is available to candidates 18 years of age or older,” Universal Orlando said.

HHN 2021 runs through October 31

Universal Orlando is serving up some terrifyingly tasty F&B inspired by this year’s haunted houses at HHN, with dishes based on The Haunting of Hill House, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Bride of Frankenstein.

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights runs on select nights through October 31. The event features 10 themed haunted houses, five scare zones and live entertainment based on horror legends.

Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, Six Flags and Cedar Fair have been busy attempting to fill job openings this year as the attractions industry recovers from COVID-19.

Applications can be filled out here.
