N.C. State Fair needs workers

September 23, 2010 

The N.C. Employment Security Commission is now accepting applications for jobs at the N.C. State Fair.

The ESC generally fills between 200 and 400 jobs each year, said ESC spokesman Larry Parker. Wages range from minimum wage to $11 to $12 an hour for jobs requiring specific skills, such as assembling or breaking down the rides.

People interested in the jobs must apply in person at any ESC office. When applying, make reference to job code number NC7269750 for set-up and tear-down jobs or NC7269751 for retail, food service, ticket taking and other related jobs.

The State Fair will run Oct. 14 to Oct. 24 this year. The ESC will start contacting applicants in early October if they want to hire them for the fair.
