Hiring of Casino Employees Begins as Casinos Continue to Expand

On June 25, 2007, the Palazzo Casino is getting a nudge on its competition in what some gaming industry analysts are calling an all out contest for gambling casino staff.

An employment facility for the $1.8 billion casino facility recently opened as Las Vegas Sands Corporation began the process of accepting some 4,000 employees for the Las Vegas strip resort, which is scheduled to open by the end of 2007.

Because the Palazzo, which is a 3,000 room property, is a sister company and connected to the Venetian, which has 4,000 rooms, a lot of non-customer service and house support positions will be shared by the 2 casino facilities.

The Palazzo will offer 420 job classifications like housekeeping, gaming, food, beverage, property management, marketing, telecommunications, wedding services, entertainment and administration.

Mike Gentry, VP of the Human Resources Department of the Venetian and Palazzo, said that this employment process will result in between 10 - 13 applicants per position.

Gentry expects that between 700 - 1,000 Venetian employees will probably apply to the Palazzo, which means that those positions will have to be filled as well. Prospective Palazzo employees will be able to schedule times for their job interviews, to keep the lines free of the employment center.

The application process for the Palazzo will start the next wave for the brand new Las Vegas hotel casino facilities, following the 2005 grand openings of the Wynn Las Vegas and the South Point and the 2006 grand opening of the Red Rock Resort.

Palazzo which has not set an opening date for their grand opening is the first of the new casino resorts in Las Vegas to go online and is expected to be followed by Encore, the $2.1 billion subsidiary of Wynn Las Vegas and MGM Mirage's CityCenter worth $7.4 billion in 2009.

On a lesser scale, the tower of the Trump International Hotel and Tower will open next year, as well as the Aliante Station of Station Casino worth $650 million in North Las Vegas. The 5,000 room Echelon project by the Boyd Gaming Corporation worth $4.8 billion held their ground breaking ceremony last week and is expected to open on 2010.

In a report made to the investors last February, Wall Street Organization Deutsche Bank, commented that the casino industry in Las Vegas will need to fill the 113,500 employee positions by 2012.

The report made by Deutsche Bank was made before the announcement of New York based organization, Elad Group plans in May to replace the New Frontier property with a $5 billion collaborative development between MGM Mirage and Kerzner International.

Gentry firmly believes that the Palazzo Casino will find their employees even with Las Vegas' low employment rate, which is 4.6%.

Some of the potential staff of the Palazzo could come from the Stardust, which shutdown in November and the New Frontier, which will be closed down this July 2007, displacing 1,000 employees.
