ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — As the temperature is rising, so too are hiring efforts by companies looking to bring on seasonal help.

From hardware stores to concession stands, opportunities for seasonal work in the sun are springing up across Duke City.

After a year-long closure, grabbing a hot dog and soda at a baseball game might be on the horizon and the Isotopes Park is looking for new hires to help with just that.

Spectra Food Services & Hospitality, the concessions company that’s responsible for keeping game-day fans satiated with drinks and snacks at Isotopes games, is hiring for over 100 jobs spanning from event-day positions to part-time positions, according to a release from the company.

Available positions include bartenders, cashiers, concessions workers, dishwashers and more.

Start to blossom

The start of spring brings new leaves to trees, blossoms to flowers and swarms of people to plant nurseries.

While many Albuquerque nurseries have wrapped up hiring for the season, Plant World Nursery & Landscape Supplies, 250 El Pueblo NE, is looking to hire around 10 people, according to sales manager Sarah Collao.

Collao said the next two months are the busiest time of the year for the company and the store is still looking to hire about 10 people to help with the increased traffic.
