Any one interested in learning about job opportunities at the still-being-built Rivers Casino are being encouraged to head to the David Lawrence Convention Center Wednesday. Casino HR Director Andre Barnaby says the event is more of a meet-and-greet event than an opportunity to apply for a job. He says both the 10:00am and 4:30pm session will begin with a short video presentation about the casino and the industry in general and then managers who have already been hired will be on hand to answer questions. Barnaby says there will also be information about the state’s licensing process for those who are eventually offered jobs. Applications for about 1,000 jobs are being accepted at the casino’s web site. The casino will also hold a “career fair” for food and beverage jobs next week. The event at Heinz Filed May 6th from 12-7 will focus on the openings in the casino’s 4 bars and 5 restaurants. Barnaby says applications will be taken at that event. Non-tip jobs discussed at Wednesday’s fair will start at $8.00 and run up to $30.00 and hour.
