Ahead of its planned premiere in February, the Del Lago Resort And Casino has opened a recruitment and employment office in order to help the coming upstate New York facility fill some 1,800 positions.
According to a report from the Rochester Business Journal newspaper, the new office is in the city of Seneca Falls in the Generations Bank building and offers limited opening hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
The four-story and 205-room Del Lago Resort And Casino is currently under construction near the town of Tyre between the cities of Syracuse and Rochester and will require up to 500 dealers to operate its 75 gaming tables and ten-table poker room. The $440 million development is due to require roughly 1,500 casino employees all in alongside some 300 to work in its hotel and spa, which is scheduled to open around six months after gambling operations begin.
“The foundation of a great hotel and casino experience is always built with talented people,” Jeff Babinski, Executive Vice-President and General Manager for Del Lago Resort And Casino, told the Rochester Business Journal.
The newspaper reported that perspective employees visiting the Seneca Falls office are being asked to bring their resume while on-site computers will be available for candidates to access online applications.
The Del Lago Resort And Casino is moreover set to offer a banquet hall, several restaurants and lounges and a 2,500-person entertainments center while its casino floor is to have some 2,000 slots.
“While we are building a beautiful casino, we are also building the foundation of a great experience, which is always done with people,” Babinski told The Citizen newspaper. “When we open in February of 2017, we’ll have hired several hundred dealers who will help craft unique experiences for our guests and support our overall goal to increase tourism in the Finger Lakes.”
For those unable to make it to Seneca Falls, Babinski stated that the Del Lago Resort And Casino will be holding its next local jobs fair on October 18 from 2pm to 6pm at the Finger Lakes Community College in Hopewell.
