AUSTINTOWN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -

Operators of the Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course have posted the last 100 positions they are trying to fill as the facility ramps up recruiting and hiring ahead of its opening early this fall.

When it opens, the thoroughbred track and slot machine venue is expected to employ approximately 400, with 90 percent of the positions being filled by residents of the Mahoning Valley.

The the latest positions include, bartenders, barbacks, beverage servers, cooks, food and beverage attendants, sous chefs, and stewards, facilities and environmental service workers, database marketing, video lottery terminal attendants and technicians.  Security and the count room are included in what will be the last large group of positions that need to be filled prior to the gaming and racing facility’s opening.

The $125 million facility is currently under construction on Canfield-Niles Road just south of Interstate 80 in Austintown Township.

It will open with 850 Video Lottery Terminals and multiple dining and entertainment options, including a sports bar, entertainment lounge and food court.

The 1-mile racetrack, with an enclosed grandstand seating more than 1,000, will host live thoroughbred racing beginning Nov. 24, as well as simulcast wagering on horse races from throughout North America 365 days a year.

Applications for these and other positions posted previously are available online at www.hollywoodmahoningvalley.com/careers.
