New sports complex getting a head start on hiring

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Several businesses in the Grand Strand are hiring, but one business in particular is getting a head start. The Myrtle Beach Indoor Sports Facility is hiring before it even exists.

The managing company, Sports Facilities Advisory out of Florida, tells WMBF News reporter Alex Holley this is what it takes. Currently the parking lot is under construction, and the work to build the facility is expected to start next week. The company says it's normal procedure to start the process of working at a new facility one year ahead of it actually opening.

They are close to hiring two key positions- the business development manager and general manager. These will be the people pitching the facility for business, and they will work to connect the community and schedule events. As for the rest of the staff, that will have to wait until the building is up. The working staff positions for the facility won't be hired until around two months before the opening, which is scheduled to be February 2015.

Once the management positions are secured, they will work inside the Myrtle Beach Area Convention Center during construction until the site is complete. This building project has to stay on time, since the first event has already been booked for March. Although it has been secured, representatives with the managing company are not ready to release any details.
