Grand Strand businesses gearing up to hire

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Businesses near the beach are putting out "Now Hiring" signs. Zipline Adventures at the old Pavilion site is one of the latest to start looking for new hires.

In the Grand Strand, it's time to get to work. It's the part of the year when local businesses get ready for tourists to roll into the area for the start of spring. There are big expectations for this year, with the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber even announcing the 2014 season is predicted to be busier because of low flight fares.

But first there's the matter of getting past last year's spring shadow. Most businesses determine how many to hire based on the numbers from the past season. Last year's chilly weather left many businesses out in the cold. Business managers near Ocean Boulevard say they're still hoping and hiring for better luck this spring.

"I'm sure everyone on the beach would say the same thing," explained Mark Bessey with Zipline Adventures. "You know from the weather and everything being a major factor, with us being outdoors."

There are a few job fairs this week: the Ocean Lakes Campground job fair starts Monday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and managers are looking for up to 250 people. Zipline Adventures will accept applications Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and expects to hire up to 30 people. Tanger Outlets and the Myrtle Beach Skywheel are also hiring.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
