The del Lago Resort & Casino is officially hiring.
On Monday, the resort announced that they were officially seeking 480 trainees for table games and poker dealers. The casino will house 1,800 jobs once opened in February and will feature 2,000 slot machines.
A bulk of the job opportunities will be announced between November 2016 and January 2017. General Manager and Executive Vice President Jeff Babinski said of Monday’s announcement that, “We are excited that the first phase of hiring is now beginning. With our upcoming information sessions and dealer schools we will begin the hiring process for several hundred dealers — the vast majority of whom we believe will come from Seneca County and the surrounding Finger Lakes region.”
del Lago will be holding two information sessions for those who might be interested in deciding whether dealing at the casino is an ideal career path for them. Those interested do not need table-games experience, and for those who attend the information sessions — it will provide an opportunity to meet leadership at the resort.
The information sessions will be held at the following locations and times:
- 2-8 pm on Sunday, August 21, at the Magee Firehouse — located at 1807 State Route 318, Seneca Falls, NY.
- 2-8 pm on Wednesday, August 24, at the Clyde Firehouse — 15 Ford Street, Clyde, NY.
After the information sessions, interested candidates will be able to apply for admission into dealer school. After being selected and successfully completing the dealer training school, they will have the opportunity to apply to and audition for a job as table games or poker dealer.
