Temporary and Seasonal Employment

Temporary employment opportunities are listed here. The majority of temporary jobs are for the San Diego County Fair, and are posted in the spring. Temporary/seasonal employment positions do not allow employees to have multiple jobs at the same time. Temporary/seasonal employees must decide which job to accept, if offered more than one position.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are retired with CalPERS benefits, please do NOT complete an application, as we are unable to hire you as a 119-day temporary employee due to CalPERS rules and regulations.
