HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Topgolf Huntsville is preparing to open its doors, and 350 employees are needed to help do that. The company listed the jobs at topgolf.com/careers ahead of an early winter opening. Managers expect to hire the employees in roughly three weeks.
Available positions include: servers, bartenders, kitchen, maintenance and guest services staff. Interested applicants should register to audition at an upcoming MISSION: Ambition event.
The hiring event is described by the company as "one of the most unique ways one will ever interview for a job. Cloaked in mystery, but full of intrigue, these events are Topgolf’s special way of showcasing its culture of fun and energy. Applicants are inspired to leave their dress-up clothes and pre-rehearsed answers at the door and start thinking mission-minded. Their time interviewing will consist of gathering intel and navigating through group activities, interactive panel interviews, one-on-one convos with Topgolf’s venue leadership teams, games and more."
“We couldn’t be more excited to begin hiring for these positions in Rocket City,” said Topgolf Huntsville Director of Operations Ryan Pitek. “We can’t wait to meet all of the candidates and welcome them to our Topgolf family!”
Hired associates for the new 53,000-square-foot venue will receive free Top golf game play, food and beverage discounts, plus the opportunity to obtain medical, vision and dental insurance and participate in a 401(k) retirement savings program.
"We're very excited because they fill a huge void in the entertainment areas of Huntsville," said Odie Fakhouri of RCP Companies, the developers of MidCity.
Huntsville City Administrator John Hamilton said entertainment venues like Topgolf are bringing more than just jobs, it also brings a high quality of life to the community.
"Well 350 is not a small number, that's a good healthy jobs announcement, and what they will serve for is a catalyst in that area," he said.
A majority of the jobs Topgolf is offering are service industry jobs, which Hamilton said will reach a specific demographic, and will be a good thing.
"Some of these jobs are going to go to teenagers, they're going to go to college students, or young adult, people that are looking for a second job. I mean there's a wide variety of people that are attracted to these kind of jobs, and that can really add value to their lives," he explained.
And as excitement for Topgolf grows, Fakhouri wants people to know it's meant to be an entertainment concept.
"The great thing about Topgolf is that you don't need to know how to golf. It's actually more fun if you're not good, you can eat and drink and listen to music and hang out," he said.
