While you can’t bowl at Turlock’s new Ten Pin Fun Center just yet, you can find a job — more than 100 of them, in fact.

As finishing work continues on the large family entertainment center being built just off Highway 99 in the Monte Vista Crossings shopping center, hiring has begun to fill some 125 jobs. Applicants are invited to attend a multi-day hiring fair from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 2 to April 5 at the center, at 3700 Countryside Drive.

The center will be hiring restaurant hosts, servers, bartenders, cooks, bowling and gaming hosts, game technicians, bowling mechanics and more. Job seekers must be at least 16 years old, but those under age 18 require a work permit. Take a resume and identification, and be prepared for on-the-spot interviews during the event.

The new Ten Pin Fun Center building has been under construction since September 2017. The 62,000-square-foot space will have a full-service restaurant, 34 bowling lanes, more than 60 arcade and interactive video games, a two-story laser tag arena, three full bars, an outdoor beer garden, a bocce ball court and a covered patio.

The restaurant, named Deadwood Social from an online naming contest, will serve gastropub-style farm-to-table cuisine. A luxury boutique bowling room can be rented for private events. Combined with the center, Ten Pin can accommodate parties for up to 1,000 people.

The long-gestating project was first proposed in 2010 across from California State University, Stanislaus, on land that has since become the student housing complex The Vista. Since work began on the Monte Vista Crossings site across from Hobby Lobby, the center has been hit with unexpected construction delays that pushed it past a number of proposed opening dates.
