Austintown racino job fair Monday afternoon

Posted: Updated:
AUSTINTOWN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Operators of the Hollywood Gaming at the Mahoning Valley Race Course under construction in Austintown expect more than one thousand people to attend the first of two job fairs scheduled for the gaming venue.

The first career fair is being held on Monday from noon until 8:00 p.m. next door to the Party On! store at the Austintown Plaza located at 6000 Mahoning Avenue.

Interested candidates will be able to learn about open positions, salary, benefits, hours, and opportunities for advancement.

Company officials say that people looking for a job must apply online. Those interested can find a list of the 400 available jobs, and application information here.

People who don't have access to the internet may access the site at a local library.

Since the venue is smoke-free, potential employees must pass a test to show that they are nicotine free. They must also be 21 years of age or older and provide a current resume. Officials say no experience is necessary. Training will be provided.

A second job fair will be held from noon until 8:00 p.m. on June 25 at Stambaugh Auditorium Auditorium.

The thoroughbred race track and slots facility under construction at Route 46 and Interstate 80 is seeking employees in a wide variety of job categories, including VLT operations, food and beverage, housekeeping, maintenance and facilities, parking, wardrobe, security and surveillance, and racing operations, as well as in administrative positions.

65 percent of the jobs will be full time, according to Penn National officials who say that entry level employees average $30,000 to $40,000 a year in combined wages and tips. The company also offers a benefit package which includes medical, dental, vision and life insurance, as well as tuition reimbursement.

Supervisory personnel will likely start working in July, while other employees will be brought on in August for training.
