GILBERT , Ariz. -- A sports and entertainment giant is preparing to open its doors at the newest location in Gilbert. 450 jobs are up for grabs, and interviews are already underway.

TopGolf, a massive golf/entertainment complex, opens in Gilbert just six months after the successful launch of a location in Scottsdale earlier this year.

Approximately 450 jobs are posted on topgolf.com/careers. Applications are already being received and reviewed. Interviews for hourly positions begin in October. Managerial jobs are being filled immediately.

TopGolf will be one of the largest employers in Gilbert, according to operations manager Justin Norvell. "We'll be in the top ten as far as number of associates that we have on staff when we open," he says.

Norvell says the company is committed to promoting from within and provides opportunity for growth for any employee who expresses an interest.

When the Scottsdale location opened, approximately 1,500 people applied for the 450 positions. Norvell says the application process, which the company calls an "audition," is not like a typical job interview.

"It's typically 3 to 4 hours and we really get to know our candidates," Norvell says. "We definitely are looking for fun, exciting individuals that want to be part of our brand."

Construction continues on the 65,000-square-foot facility in Gilbert at Ray Road and San Tan Valley Parkway. TopGolf Gilbert is expected to open in December.
