At A Time When Casinos Are Cutting Jobs, Greektown Adds Employees
The current state of the economy in the United States has lent itself to many jobs being lost in the casino industry. That fact is what makes what Greektown Casino Hotel is doing all the more shocking.
At a time when many casinos around the country are slashing jobs, Greektown is making a bold move to hire 170 new employees. The move by the Detroit casino corresponds with the opening of their International Buffet on December 22nd.
That appears to be only the beginning of the hiring process for the casino. They are also planning on hiring another 150 employees for their new casino opening in February. Eventually there will be around 400 additional employees for the new casino.
"It is truly remarkable that at a time when others are firing employees, Greektown is providing employment opportunities to residents of their state. Those jobs are much needed and will be greatly appreciated," said Fran Grubold, a Detroit native.
The positions that are available involve mostly food services. There are also several positions in security, purchasing, and engineering. Many of the jobs are full time to go along with the part time positions that are available.
Casinos around the country have been laying off workers in record numbers. They are one of the hardest hit industries under the current financial strain on Americans. Usually casinos survive tough economic times, but this time things appear to be different than in the past, with many casinos already closing their doors.
