In the Inland Empire, Southern California, two casinos, the San Manuel and the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa are recruiting for hundreds of positions in the coming months, as they plan to host online and in person fairs.
In the COVID-19 pandemic, as casinos begin to reopen, they have embraced modern technologies with additions made to safeguard workers and clientele. To recognise clients or workers, thermal cameras may scan the temperatures of patrons or run facial recognition. To avoid interaction with biohazards, antiviral coatings may be applied to touchscreens.
A virtual hiring fair will be organised by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians on February 18, where job seekers will meet hiring managers, book interviews on the spot, and browse a video library to learn more about the casino. This year, San Manuel Casino is planning to hire more than 2,000 full-time resort workers.
To be given an interview time based on availability, anyone interested in attending the online job fair can go to careerexpo.sanmanuel.com.
In-person job fair
In comparison, the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa will held an in-person work job last Thursday, in Cabazon in the Morongo Grand Ballroom.
They were looking for assistant servers, bakers, beverage porters, cashiers, chefs, dishwashers, food runners, hosts, clerks for liquor control, pastry cooks and supervisors of food and beverages according to the Press-Enterprise.
Benefits are to include full-time employees and dependents’ medical, dental and vision care, and full-time and part-time team workers’ life insurance options. A 401(k) account, a holiday tie, jury duty pay, paid meal breaks and free meals are additional advantages.
Employees are also entitled to discounts at Morongo restaurants and various businesses, including Sage Spa, Bowling at Canyon Lanes and Tukwet Canyon’s Morongo Golf Club.
After being closed due to COVID-19 mandates, the casino, operated by the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, reopened in May. Masks are mandatory if guests wish to enter.
Morongo offers thousands of local jobs as one of the biggest employers in Riverside County and produces about $3 billion in annual economic activity.
San Manuel Casino
An extended gaming space, a 24-hour restaurant and a high-end dining area, as well as new retail stores will be included in phase one of the resort’s upgrades. 429 luxurious rooms and suites, exclusive dining venues, an elevated pool and spa, modern retail spaces and an entertainment center will be included in the second phase.
More than two years ago, San Manuel broke ground on its expansion and has already completed some of the project’s components, including several new high-limit spaces, an enlarged gift shop and a six-story parking structure.
In cage operations, human resources, information technology, slots, security and table games, among other fields, a number of openings are available.
San Manuel offers dealers a “table-for-table” tip system, unlike many other casinos, that allows them to keep the tips they earn on that table.
