MGM Resorts Int'l looking to hire 1,000

LAS VEGAS - It may still feel like winter but MGM Resorts International is already thinking about summer.

It’s hosting a job fair Wednesday looking to fill 1,000 seasonal positions and although these positions are only for the summer, there are opportunities to stay with the company.

Whether it’s the Bellagio, Circus Circus, Mandalay Bay or the Mirage, MGM Resorts International is looking to fill seasonal jobs at all 13 of its properties on the Strip.

“Our ideal candidates are people who like to engage, entertain and inspire guests from all over the world. So, folks who like to do a lot of customer service. We really encourage you to come down,” said Fe Allen, director of talent acquisition, MGM Resorts International.

“There are so many opportunities,” said Khatherine Gaines, MGM Resorts International. “There are food and beverage positions, like bartenders, cocktail servers. There's pool positions, like pool attendants, lifeguards, even retail cashiers. There's everything for everyone.”

Gaines knows the hiring process inside and out. Six years ago she was hired by MGM as a seasonal employee.

“I was a pool greeter,” she said. “I was the girl checking everyone's keys and bags and making sure that they could access the pool.”

Now Gaines is a recruiter looking for other exceptional candidates. Even though these seasonal positions are available from February to October, it's really a way to get your foot in the door.

“I'm looking for someone with a great smile, positive attitude and knowing that this is somewhere that you can not only have a job but you're building a career,” Gaines said.

The job fair tomorrow runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in the Oceanside Ballroom.

Anyone interested should apply in advance on the MGM’s website.
