Tens of thousands of football fans will converge on Levi's Stadium for the Super Bowl. And hundreds more will be there, too, hired to greet and serve them.

The jobs are one day only, mostly minimum wage and with no benefits, but it is a chance to be part of football's biggest event.

The world's largest recruiting firm, Robert Half International, is looking to fill over 100 positions at $13 an hour to meet-and-greet fans, take their tickets and help with screening.

"Oh yeah, it's definitely exciting. I think it would be something I would be able to tell. It would be a great story to tell people in the future," said Christopher Glover from Sunnyvale.

Glover joined a long line at Great America, which is bringing on seasonal employees about a month early to handle private Super Bowl events. Over 300 people will be needed on game day.

"It's really a chance to experience it from the inside, so there's a lot of interest in it, and we're hoping to get some really sharp people," said Raul Rehnborg, the V.P. and General Manager at Great America.

They will benefit from Santa Clara's higher minimum wage, now $11 an hour.

KFC is also hiring in anticipation of long lines of hungry fans, whether they're ticket holders or watching at home.

"I have right now 20 employees, so I need to hire more, so maybe about 30 people working," said Judith Perez, a KFC manager.

Francisco Rincon has already been told he'll be working outside Levi's Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday. He has been a sign spinner for three years.

"I'm going to take my sign and dance around the stadium and make the crowd feel excited about the Super Bowl," said Rincon.

He doesn't know yet what he'll be promoting, but he's looking forward to playing to the biggest audience he's ever had.

If you're interested, jobs can be found at the Robert Half website.
