Work & Play FAQs
In addition to a free Wild Pass, as well as up to 4 discounted Wild Passes, do I also get paid while participating in the Work & Play program?
Absolutely! All Work & Play Associates will receive the starting rate of pay for the position they are assigned.
How often will I get paid?
All Associates are paid on a bi-weekly basis (every other week). The pay week runs from Monday through Sunday, with paychecks for the previous two weeks of work, issued the following Friday. Although paper checks are an option, it is strongly encouraged/recommended that Associates sign up for Direct Deposit. Direct Deposit is faster (most banks will display your check in your account prior to you waking up on pay day), it saves you time (no need to plan to pick up your check or spend time cashing it or depositing it into your account), and it’s more secure (no chance of losing it, having it stolen, or accidentally washing it).
Is overtime pay available?
Due to the fact that we are a seasonal amusement industry for the public, we do not offer, and are not required to offer, overtime pay to seasonal Associates. Work & Play Associates are paid a flat hourly rate of pay, regardless of the number of hours worked per week.
How many operating days will I be required to work, to meet the requirements of the Work and Play program?
Work & Play Associates are required to work 10 operating shifts (3 of which MUST occur over Memorial Day Weekend) in order to meet the requirements of the Work & Play program. Shifts generally range from 6 to 8 hours in length.
How will I know which 10 days I will be required to work to meet the requirements of the Work & Play program?
During the interview process, you will be required to provide 13 shifts of availability from a list of dates. These 13 shifts will be weekends and holidays from late May through early July. Once your 13 shifts have been approved, you will be scheduled to work the first 10 of those 13 shifts. The remaining 3 shifts will be make-up days to be used when you do not work on one of the first 10 shifts due to inclement weather, personal illness, etc.
Are there any additional days of work required, in order to meet the requirements of the Work & Play program?
Prior to working the 10 operating shifts, Work & Play Associates are required to attend the following paid training programs:
- A company Orientation program (called Moreyentation) that lasts approximately 2.5 hours
- A departmental training program that lasts approximately 4 hours
- A tour of the facility that you will be assigned to work on that lasts approximately 1 hour
- Specific training for your assigned role that lasts approximately 8 hours.
The above trainings are usually conducted on 3 separate days, with the facility tour being conducted on the same day as one of the other 3 trainings. Multiple day, evening, and weekend time slots are available for the above required training programs. Dates and times for these programs will be discussed during the interview session.
What happens if I am not able to work on one of my 10 agreed-upon shifts?
If you are not able to work on one of your agreed-upon shifts, you will be reassigned to work on your next available make-up shift.
Once I have completed my 10 required operating shifts, are there any other requirements that I need to fulfill to keep my Wild Pass and my discounted pass(es) active?
Just two! First, you need to return all uniform items that you were issued from Morey’s Piers Wardrobe Department. Second, you and your dependents need to follow all policies and procedures when using your Wild Pass as a Guest!
What happens if I do not fulfill the requirements of the Work & Play program?
In order to fulfill the 10-shift requirement of the “Work & Play” program, you must work all 10 shifts by Monday, July 4th. If you do not fulfill the requirements of the Work & Play program, your Wild Pass and all associated discount Wild Passes will be deactivated. Reactivation of your Wild Pass and any discounted passes can occur if the cost of the passes, at the time of deactivation, is paid.
What happens if it rains?
On most occasions, Morey’s Piers continues to operate in a light rain or mist. Ponchos are provided and some Associates have access to a covered area or an umbrella installed at your work location. If Morey’s Piers closes early on a scheduled operating day due to inclement weather, you will receive credit for working that shift, as one of your 10 required shifts. If Morey’s Piers decides not to open at all on an operating day, due to inclement weather, you will need to work on your next available make-up shift.
What kind of uniform do I need?
All Work & Play Associates will be provided with a shirt, jacket, and belt to wear while working. Work & Play Associates must provide their own tan shorts and/or pants and shoes, in accordance with our Image Counts guidelines. Please click here for complete uniform information.
Is company parking available to Work & Play Associates?
Unfortunately, with approximately 150 year-round Associates and 1300 seasonal Associates, Morey’s Piers is unable to provide parking for most Team Members. However, there is ample free street parking west of New Jersey Avenue. In addition, there are many paid parking lots and metered parking spaces in close proximity to the piers.
