Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--Hundreds of people showed up last night to become the newest employees of the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Job searchers stood in the rain in lines that wrapped around The Diamond, to apply for 250 part-time seasonal jobs.

Work begins in April and the team is looking for everyone from ushers and ticket takers, to cooks and security.

Fans say it's an opportunity to combine work and play.

The next job fair is on Saturday, January 23rd and it runs from 10a.m. to 1p.m. at The Diamond. Mascot auditions will be at that next job fair at 1p.m.
