If you last the season, you can expect the xmas buffet of fine fried bologna, real mayonnaise with all the fixin's.

Tell us about your education, job experience, sex, age and skills.

Can you read well? Can you take orders? Are you a frail butt? We need to know.

Do you prefer a position in food, games or rides?

You actually want to know about his frail butt and sex?????

Funny comments people very funny. I'm Northwest of Chicago and looking to work with the rides doing set up tear down and operating them.I can read talk and write, I have a HS diploma and I'm a hard worker and want to learn the business.But bread and butter or whatever don't help me out much,just trying to grasp what I can make as a carnie. I hope I didn't offend anyone by asking.

I don't think you offended anybody. Ballbusting is a fine old show business tradition.

Your comments here add value to your resume. Normally, you can get a job on any midway when you simply walk up. Are you saying that those you contacted did not need help?
