More than 100 job opportunities are available at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Resort & Casino as a result of the completion of the property’s three-year, multi-million-dollar renovation and expansion project.
“Harrah’s Ak-Chin’s guests come from across the state and around the world and are searching for one-of-a-kind experiences,” said Robert Livingston, general manager of Harrah’s Ak-Chin Resort & Casino. “The increase in gaming and entertainment space as well as the addition of luxury guestrooms means more people are coming to see what we have to offer. And that means more employment opportunities.”
“It’s a great time to be a job creator,” said Ak-Chin Resort & Casino Employment Manager Lauren Conley. “We pride ourselves on being an innovator in the entertainment space and putting people to work means great things for our community. Our growth has caused a continual demand to fill positions in Culinary, Food & Beverage, Finance, Audio Visual, Table Games and Environmental Cleaning Services.”
Harrah’s Ak-Chin Resort & Casino also announced the addition of two new talent specialists. Maggie Beronio and Amie Pluskowski will be responsible for facilitating effective hiring by assessing staffing needs and identifying and recruiting talented individuals to fill open and specialty positions.
Most recently, Beronio was a recruiter with Legoland California Resort where she assisted with the full-cycle recruitment efforts of more than 3,000 candidates within a two-year period. Pluskowski was responsible for establishing the Westbrook Stables facility, recruiting qualified candidates to fill a variety of animal service positions.
Harrah’s Ak-Chin Resort & Casino’s 1,000 employees come from from Maricopa, Phoenix and the surrounding communities.
“The City of Maricopa’s bustling economy is great for business, but the local unemployment rate has made it difficult to fill open and specialty positions with local residents,” added Conley. “We have great opportunities and we invite the community to consider applying for one of our many open positions.”
