Caesars Virginia hiring hundreds of people for temporary Premier Casino Resort in Danville
American casino giant Caesars Corporation has announced the availability of hundreds of jobs at its temporary multimillion-dollar premier casino resort destination in Danville, Virginia.
While the permanent Caesars Virginia Casino Resort is expected to be up and running sometime in 2024, the operator is all set to open a temporary gaming facility this summer. For the temporary facility, the company is hiring 400 people, while the permanent facility will generate jobs for more than 1300 people.
The brand-new casino resort is currently underway in Danville. Meanwhile, Caesars Virginia managers are holding the first hiring event last Thursday at the athletic complex of Averett University’s athletic complex, which is situated at 707 Mt. Cross Road. The hiring process will continue for some more days as the company needs a team of nearly 400 people to run the temporary gaming facility.
The open positions come from the fields of table games, slot operations, as well as in surveillance, security, finance and warehouse departments. The temporary staff is expected to start working immediately.
Caesars Virginia General Manager (GM) Chris Albrecht said in a statement that the company has hired a lot of local individuals but it is also in search of qualified people from the whole region.
Speaking on the topic, Albrecht said, “We’ve been in Caswell County, we’ve been in Greensboro, we went with the Chambers, we met with a lot of the colleges and universities that are ready. So we are looking for talented individuals not just here in Danville, but from the entire region of Virginia surrounding us here in Virginia and North Carolina region.”
The seasoned casino business executive explained that the company will focus on cities like Greensboro, Reidsville and Yanceyville as such cities are less than an hour away from the upcoming casino.
Caesars is spending more than half-billion dollars to construct its new casino resort in the City of Danville, which is a significant for the company as well as for the economically distressed area.
Upon its completion next year, Caesars Virginia in Danville will offer a 500-room hotel and a premium casino gaming space equipped with nearly 1,300 slot machines, 85 live and 24 electronic table games, a state-of-the-art poker room, and a high-tech sportsbook. In addition, it will offer amenities like swimming pools, spa, bars, restaurants, and a 2,500-seat live entertainment theater.
