Resorts World boosts jobs by 30 percent

| |

Job seekers hoping to hit the employment jackpot may want to head south to Resorts World Casino New York. The entertainment complex announced the creation of 250 additional, permanent positions at their South Ozone Park facility.

This boosts its number of employees up to 1,750 – a nearly 30 percent increase from when Resorts World opened in October of 2011.

“We are thrilled to have been able to hire such a talented and diverse staff that represents this community so well,” said Michael Speller, President of Resorts World. “With more than 50,000 having applied for jobs at Resorts World, we will continue to look for opportunities to grow and create even more jobs.”

Resorts World hopes the added positions not only increase the facility’s standard of service for its patrons but also assist the local workforce, as it enlists mainly area-based employees.

The latest available data shows that minority and/or female workers make up roughly 90 percent of Resort’s World’s current staff. Sixty two percent of its workers hail from Queens and 99 percent of its workforce resides in New York City and the immediate surrounding areas.
