KANSAS CITY, Mo. — If you’ve ever been interested in working for the Royals, now’s your season.
The organization is hosting a career fair on Saturday at Kauffman Stadium, looking to fill hundreds of needed spots for the next year of baseball. Opening day is about a month away and they are ready to bring in a plethora of people.
“We’re really looking to hire as many people as possible,” said Madeline Keller, HR manager for Aramark with the team. “We are still trying to recover after COVID.”
It is an open to hiring event from 10am to 4pm with many managers available to provide job details and speak to potential candidates.

A man at the K, Bob Stamps, has been with the Royals for 50 years. He started out as an usher and is now a supervisor.
“The fans are really good,” Stamps said. “I like the organization out here, I like the people I work with, so they make you want to come back year after year.”
There are jobs available in every field of the organization, including concessions, events, chefs and ushers. They also hire part-time college students for the summer.
“Being that I come from other teams and have worked in different sports, I have never worked with a better organization,” said Johnny Woychick, the Executive Chef of the Royals. “Open, honest, punctual people… you just want to learn and you want to walk away with a smile on your face knowing you made a difference, that’s what I’m looking for.”
