Seneca Gaming Corporation, the San Manual Band of Mission Indians and the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino are hiring.
US.- After nearly a year of revenue losses and lay-offs, several tribal casinos have launched recruitment drives, suggesting increased hope that land-based gaming will start to see a recovery.
Seneca Gaming Corporation, owner of Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino and Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino, has announced that it will host a in-person and virtual jobs fair on February 25 between 10am and 6pm.
Vice president of human resources, Meghan Smith, said: “Even with the changes and challenges everyone has gone through over the past year, Seneca Gaming Corporation has remained one of the largest employers in Western New York, and we are excited to be growing our team across a variety of departments.”
Meanwhile, the San Manual Band of Mission Indians has announced that it seeks to recruit up to 500 new personnel. The company will host a virtual jobs fair on February 18, from 9am to 4pm.
Its chief people and infrastructure officer, Brigitte Saria, said: “The expansion of San Manuel will offer an economic boost to the local job market at a time when it is really needed.”
Finally, the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino in California is looking to fill 50 positions and will stage a job fair on February 23, 10am to 1pm.
Recovery in land-based gaming
The recruitment drives suggest some renewed optimism in the land-based gaming sector.
The American Gaming Association (AGA) released its latest Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker in December, reporting a 6.3 per cent rise in gaming revenue from September to October.
The AGA’s president, Bill Miller, has urged the government to offer financial assistance to casinos and their employees to help businesses recover from the impact of the pandemic.
However, analysts have predicted that a full recovery in Las Vegas could take up to four years.
