The Great New York State Fair is looking to hire hundreds of temporary workers to work during the course of the 2018 Fair.

Just think about the proximity to deep fried Oreos. The ability to grab a slushie at nearly any moment. The people watching. Sound like a dream come true - or maybe like a fun job? Here's your chance.

A few hundred positions are available during the Fair, which runs from August 22 - September 3. Jobs are available in areas such as general labor and maintenance, customer service, parking attendants, admission gate staff and cashiers.  Some jobs may begin before the first day of the Fair.

The Great New York State Fair will hold a Job Fair Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9 to fill temporary positions for the 2018 Fair.  The event will be held in the Science and Industry Building on the Fairgrounds 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm Friday and 9:00 am - 1:00 pm Saturday.

You can get an interview quickly by applying online here.

You'll need to have two forms of ID to apply and applicants without the necessary documents will not receive an interview:

  • Two forms of unexpired identification. A list of acceptable documents is available here;
  • Valid and original New York State working papers if they are under age 18;
  • A copy of their DD-214 if they are military veterans.

According to a release from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, who runs the Fair, jobs for applicants under age 18 are limited. Applicants may be subject to background investigations or criminal history checks.

Rate of pay varies by assignment.

Save me a deep fried Oreo.
