Once open, all tents will have 24/7 availability for our customers.

All training will be done in Paintsville but you may be asked to work in Paintsville, Ashland, Georgetown or in the Warehouse. Travel expenses and lodging will be provided if necessary for our remote locations.

This is a great opportunity for teachers on summer break or anybody who is looking to have a fun temporary job that is extremely profitable. Our selling season is short but extremely busy so we ask that you can fully commit yourself from mid June to around July 5th or 6th.

Compensation is an hourly rate with a bonus based on sales. This can be very lucrative depending on how successful you and the locations are. You will be given really cool Jerry Pelfrey Fireworks t-shirts and the opportunity to earn free fireworks.

Any drug or alcohol use at the tents or warehouse will result in immediate termination. We need our employees at their best so that they can focus on selling the best fireworks in the business. A background check is also required but note that an arrest on your background does not automatically disqualify you. You should have a valid driver's license. We are hiring a few people under the age of 18 to help pack and unpack merchandise and work in the warehouse in Paintsville.
