Events Center In SF To Create 110 Jobs



Bookmark and Share

If you or someone you know is in need of a job, one Sioux Falls company is seeking applicants. SMG, the company that manages the Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center as well as the Orpheum Theater and the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is holding a job fair to find new employees.  And while they are keeping their eyes open for people to work in 2013, the search has already begun for people to work at the new events center.

The company is looking for ticket salesman, ushers, even those who are able to control a crowd of unruly fans. And on Monday dozens of people filled out applications and sat down in the ‘hot seat’ to be interviewed for those occupations.

“Each year in the fall, as we gear up for the busy season, we hold a job fair to bring in some new part time employees,” said Terry Torkildson, General Manager of SMG

SMG currently has about 300 part time employees and about 40 full time. And on Monday the company was beginning its search for about 40 more part time workers to join their team.

“Some of our employees have actually worked with us for over 20 years,” said Torkildson. “So that just goes to show just how fun the job really is.”

One of those of applicants is Rodney Arends. Arends is from Salem and thinks he has what it takes to work security.
     
“I'm kind of a people person. And it gets you out and keeps you on your toes,” said Arends.

Julie Morrison may already have a part time job working in the Minnehaha County States Attorney's Office, but she said having a little extra money, and maybe some more people to add to her circle of friends would be nice.

“It’s a good way to meet some new people, and maybe even take in a few events,” Morrison said.

 And although the company may be looking for potential employees like Arends and Morrison to help out with the over 500 events that will take place at the convention center or the arena over the next year, there's something else Torkildson said they are planning for.
     
“We will probably hire around 10 full time employees and over 100 part time,” Torkildson said.

And that would mean 110 new jobs available once the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is open. And there are a variety of new options.
     
“We will have sound board operators, camera operators, and video. We will have a lot of different things that we haven't had in the past,” Torkildson said.

For Morrison, knowing that she may have a chance to work at the events center makes applying for a job even better.

“That would be an awesome option to be able to go over there,” Morrison said.

SMG has already started the hiring process for the 10 full time jobs for the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. Torkildson said part time jobs won’t start being filled for several months.

The job fair will take place again Tuesday at the Convention Center from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
