Retirees are lining up to work at Miller Park this summer to earn extra money, find their encore career, and be part of the iconic Brewer game experience.
A wide variety of positions, non-traditional work hours, and an energetic sports-driven environment are bringing more retirees than ever to work at Miller Park.
“The retiree community here at Miller Park has a great deal to offer in almost every job that is available here. From longtime fans who’ve loved the Brewers their whole lives and finally get to be part of the team, to newly retirees, who want short-term work, to the empty-nester couple who are earning extra cash to travel, we really have opportunities for everyone,” said Kevin Jezewski, General Manager, Delaware North Sportservice.
“Ask Jim Krznarich, 80, of Milwaukee. Brewers fans can catch Krznarich in his customized beer cart ‘Jim’s Wagon’, selling beer between home plate and TGI Fridays on game day. “I love meeting people, it’s just awesome. I love what I’m doing, I don’t even consider it a job.”
Krznarich started working at Miller Park in 1964 back when it was still County Stadium. “I went to get Packer tickets and they were all sold out. I wondered if I sell beer could I get in?” Krznarich’s been at Miller Park ever since. “It turned out to be a wonderful thing.” Krznarich’s favorite part of the job; talking to the fans. “When you’re talking to the people it goes fast, it’s just awesome. You’d be surprised by all the people I’ve met working at Miller Park.” He is planning to return for his 55th year this March. “I don’t regret it,” he says, “I’ll tell you that”.
