By By Justin Phillips / American Press

As construction on the Golden Nugget

Casino gets closer to completion, the casino has increased its efforts

to find local

employees. Grabbing most of the attention are the ongoing career

and vendor fairs at the Civic Center. The events will draw

hundreds throughout Southwest Louisiana over two days.

The casino’s recent, long-term effort to find employees is at 123 College St. The new Golden Nugget Employment Center opened

its doors Thursday.

By Friday, a handful of potential

employees were spending their morning filling out applications. Rows of

computer stations

were set up in the middle of the main room while more lined the

walls. The main computers can be used to complete online applications.

The center makes it possible for

potential employees to receive prescreening interviews and even get

scheduled to interview

with the casino’s hiring managers. The center’s staff also assists

with new hires’ paperwork and gaming license applications.

“The Golden Nugget Lake Charles is

seeking energetic, enthusiastic, service-oriented individuals for

hundreds of positions

including jobs in Slot Operations, Table Games, Cashier’s Cage,

Food and Beverage, Finance, Security, Players Club, Marketing,

Hotel Resort, Golf, Facilities, Administration and many more,”

reads a news release.

The center is open 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.
