Have you ever wondered why the Citizens of Silver Dollar City are always so happy? Not only do they work at a theme park, they receive some amazing benefits for all their hard work!

Whether you work at Silver Dollar City, Showboat Branson Belle, White Water or The Wilderness Campground, you become a part of our family – and get to enjoy all of the benefits that come with it.

Here are 11 great benefits of working for Silver Dollar City Attractions. Visit our website or call the Human Resources office at 417 338-8122 to learn more!

1. Free Season Passes

That’s right. On your first day of work, you’ll receive a special season pass that’s good for unlimited visits to Silver Dollar City and White Water all season long. Your spouse and dependents will also receive passes, so they can enjoy the park on their own – or you can have a great family outing on your day off. Single hosts receive a plus-one ticket in lieu of a dependent and/or spouse pass, allowing them to bring a friend for free!

2. Extra Free Tickets

So you can your bring your friends and family to the park. What about the other important people in your life? We’ve got you covered. You’ll receive extra tickets you can share with anyone you like!

Tickets are distributed once a month during the Silver Dollar City operating season, and are good for a single admission to Silver Dollar City or White Water. Plus, they can be upgraded to a season pass for less than the cost of a one-day ticket. These are popular among our hosts – and their friends and family!

Showboat Branson Belle employees receive complimentary cruise vouchers in lieu of these tickets.

3. Discounts on Food & Merchandise

Not only can you get into the park for free, you can also save on meals and merchandise while you’re here. Try some of our new menu items or take home handmade crafts for your friends and family – all for a fraction of the price. You’ll even receive discounted rates on stays at The Wilderness Campground.

4. Dozens of Branson Discounts

We want you to be happy even when you’re not at work. Our citizens receive dozens of amazing perks at Branson shows, restaurants, attractions and businesses. This includes complimentary or reduced admission at many of Branson’s well-known theaters. It’s possible to see a different show every night of the week – and not have to pay a penny out of pocket. You could save hundreds of dollars a year on entertainment, dining and a few other surprises – all for being a part of the Silver Dollar City family.

5. Be A Part of the Herschend Family

We treat our employees like family, because we are family! Silver Dollar City is a part of Herschend Family Entertainment, which is considered the largest family-owned themed attractions corporation. You’ll receive free admission at Herschend Family Entertainment properties across the United States, including Dollywood, and even discounted tickets when the Harlem Globetrotters come to town!

6. Mary’s Well House

We want our employees being healthy physically, mentally and socially - and we make sure they are taken care of. We offer a fully staffed, full-service doctor’s office for our employees after 30 days of employment and their spouses and their dependents after one year of employment. Whether you’re looking for a routine check-up or wake up feeling under the weather, you can head to Mary’s Well House and get seen – without even needing to book an appointment. Eligible full-time hosts have the opportunity to receive additional health coverage through the company.

7. Advancement Opportunities

We’re more than a summer job. This is a place where you can grow. Most every ride, restaurant and shop has a designated lead, or other leadership positions. We aim to hire 70 percent of our full-time, salaried positions internally, and encourage employees to apply for new jobs that interest them. If you work hard and show you’re interested in climbing the ladder, this is a place where you can do it.

8. Loyalty Pay Program

Would you believe that we have hosts who have been with us for 20, 40 and 50 years – or more? This is a place where hard work and dedication are recognized, valued and rewarded. We’ve implemented a loyalty pay program, which guarantees raises after citizens reach certain milestones with our family.

9. 401(k) / Profit Sharing

You have every reason to be excited about your future with us. But we want you to be excited about your retirement, too. We offer a comprehensive 401(k) and profit sharing plan to help you prepare.

10. Flexible Work Schedules

Whether you’re looking for a fun part-time job or a rewarding full-time career, we have positions to match. We have employees who work as little as two days per week, while others are here full-time. Some work only during the summer, while others work the entire operating season. Some of our employees work full-time in the summer, then weekends in the spring, fall and Christmas seasons. Let us know your schedule and our interviewers will explain the different options that are available to you!

11. Employee Appreciation Events

We offer a variety of events during the year for employees and their families, ranging from exclusive ride times on our most popular attractions, cookouts and the always-popular Christmas luncheon. We also have programs that reward employees who go above-and-beyond in their jobs, allowing them to take home prizes or earn a free meal on the house. When we say we treat you like family, we mean it!
