Baltimore’s sole casino is looking to bolster its ranks at a hiring event this week, and not just for positions specific to the gambling trade.
While Horseshoe Casino is seeking to hire table dealers, bartenders and security guards, it also has vacancies for roles in human resources, information technology and facilities. According to a flyer for the event, there will be “offers on the spot” during the daylong event.
Horseshoe brought about 1,700 new jobs to the city when it opened in 2014, with more than half of those hired originally hired coming from the Baltimore area, according to operating company Caesars Entertainment. Since then, however, Horseshoe’s staff count has fallen by several hundred due to what the casino called “natural attrition,” according to a report from The Baltimore Sun.
Horseshoe’s new hiring effort notably comes just over a week before MGM National Harbor is set to open down in Prince George’s County. MGM has been working all year to fill more than 3,600 positions for the new $1.4 billion casino and resort in Oxon Hill, scheduled to open Dec. 8. That considerable hiring effort has created some staffing competition for Horseshoe, according to the report from The Sun.
While Horseshoe is looking to draw people to fill a broad range of positions, there’s a potential $500 bonus incentive for dealers, slot technicians and count room representatives with casino experience. Applicants should show up in professional attire and bring a resume, along with two forms of ID, according to the flyer. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
