GREEN BAY -- The Green Bay Packers and Delaware North Companies Sportservice are looking for non-profit organizations and other workers to help out on gamedays at Lambeau Field this NFL season.

Sportservice is seeking 350 to 400 employees to fill gameday concession stand operations, as well as a variety of part-time seasonal positions, premium dining and catering operations and daily operation of Curly’s Pub.

For non-profit/charitable groups, it’s an opportunity to have some fun and earn money for their organizations, with large groups earning upwards of $20,000 per season. Independent workers also are encouraged to apply to work general concessions and other hourly positions at the stadium.

The need for workers comes from a combination of turnover of groups from previous seasons and the addition of more than 100 points of sale, an initiative to enhance the gameday experience for attendees.

Concession areas include fixed and portable stands. Fixed stands generally operate with 10-20 people for eight-hour shifts and portable stands can use three people for five-hour shifts. Payment is based on a commission of gross sales with fixed stands at 10 percent and portable beer-sales stands at 5 percent. Per-person pay ranges from $12-$18 per hour.

Groups can be as small as three and as large as 100. A training session is required, and for out-of-town groups, Sportservice will travel to their city to conduct the session.

Officials with Sportservice say Packers Family Night on August 3rd at Lambeau Field provided a taste of what's to come this season.

"There were long lines at the last event, and part of that was because we just didn't have enough people. We're better staffed this week, but not as much as we would like," Tim Connolly, Packers Sales and Marketing VP said.

Officials say they currently have about 600 concession workers, and are looking for more interested individuals.

"Even if you can't play at Lambeau Field, you can say you worked there once. That would be fun," Connolly said.
