You should print a checklist of all forms needed to complete your application packet. An incomplete application packet will eliminate you from consideration for a position.

Forms

Georgia Youth Work Permit (if under the age of 18)
Obtaining a Georgia Youth Work Permit is a 3 step process. The first step is completed by you, the second step is completed by the park, and the final step is completed by the issueing officer at your school.

  1. You must go to the Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) website at http://www.dol.state.ga.us/em/online_work_permit.htm to begin the application process for your Georgia Youth Work Permit. Once on the website select the "Work Permit - Minor's Instructions for the Online System" link and review the instructions. Return to the GDOL website and select the "Minor" link and follow the instructions for completing the online application. Once you have completed your application print the "Work Data Sheet" with your 10 character "Minor Security Key (MSK)" and enclose a copy in your application packet.
  2. If you are selected for a job, by May 2, 2014 the park will complete the "Employer" section on the GDOL website and inform you of your selection.
  3. Once notified of your selection you must take the "Work Data Sheet" and your birth certificate to the issuing officer at your school. After the issuing officer has certified the employment certificate online, he/she will print a completed copy from the system and present it to you. You must take the computer generated copy of the online certificate to the park within 10 days. Failure to do so will result in you forfeiting your job. The park will maintain this copy of the employment certificate at the park in your official personnel file.
