Hollywood Slots Holds Job Fair for New Table Games Positions 

Last month, voters in Penobscot County said “yes” to table games at Hollywood Slots in Bangor. But there’s a lot to do before Hollywood Slots becomes Hollywood Casino. One item on the to-do list is to fill the job openings made possible by the addition of table games. That’s the purpose of a job fair at Eastern Maine Community College.”Basically we’re looking for table games dealers, but we’re also trying to make folks aware that we have other career opportunities associated with the positive election results from November with the addition of table games,” said Human Resources Director Scott Welch.Welch says Hollywood Slots is looking to fill 89 table game positions. That’s great news to those who know first-hand that jobs are hard to come by these days.”It’s good for the community and it’s good for all of us that have the opportunity to possibly land a job here,” said John Schneck, one job-seeker from Bangor. It’s not just table game jobs available at Hollywood Slots. Other areas of the casino have openings too.”Whether it be from banquets to food and beverages, servers, we’re looking for folks in slots, also associated with our racebook with the off-track betting and simulcast as well,” said Welch.At the fair, job-seekers can learn more about what all of these positions entail and of course, apply for them.”I’m seeing what they have to offer, a lot of different things, and hopefully I’ll get something,” said Dave Link, a job-seeker from Glenburn.Those who can’t stop by the job fair can apply online. But they’re looking for folks with personality and the easiest way to show that off is in person.”We’re looking for people that can be entertainers, that can provide excellent red carpet customer service skills,” said Welch.Hollywood Slots plans to train new employees, that way even folks who have never worked in this industry before can take a gamble at a casino job.The job fair continues on Saturday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at Eastern Maine Community College’s Rangeley Hall on Sylvan Road in Bangor.You can apply online at Hollywood Slots’ website.
