Are there any additional days of work required, in order to meet the requirements of the Work & Play program?
Prior to working the 8 operating shifts, Work & Play Associates are required to attend the following paid training programs:
- a company Orientation program (called Moreyentation) that lasts approximately 2 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 6 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.
What happens if I am not able to work on one of my 8 agreed-upon shifts?
If you are not able to work on one of your 8 agreed-upon shifts, every effort will be made to reschedule you for an alternate shift so that you can complete the requirements of the Work & Play program. However, the opportunity to reschedule is not guaranteed, and is subject to availability, operating schedule, and staffing needs.
Once I have completed my 8 required operating shifts, are there any other requirements that I need to fulfill to keep my Wild Pass and my dependent 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?
If you do not fulfill the requirements of the Work & Play program, your Wild Pass and all dependent Wild Passes will be deactivated. Reactivation of Wild Pass and dependent 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 8 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 a different operating day, in order to fulfill your 8-shift requirement. That additional day can be one of the shifts listed above, or a day not listed above IFmutually agreed upon by Pier Management and the Work & Play Associate.
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 consult the following link for complete uniform information:
Is company parking available to Work & Play Associates?
Unfortunately, with approximately 150 year-round Associates and 1500 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.
Do grandchildren qualify for dependent season passes?
Unfortunately, Grandchildren do not generally qualify for dependent season passes. Dependents would normally be a spouse or children who you would claim on your income tax form however there may be special circumstances where others might qualify.
