Kansas City Casino Begins Process Of State Job Creation

Residents in Kansas have been patient when it comes to their casino gambling industry. Voters approved casinos several years ago, but the state has had several setbacks in securing developers for the four state-owned casinos. The Hollywood Casino at the Kansas Speedway has become one that is progressing forward.

The casino is expected to open in February, but before the facility opens they must hire over a thousand employees. The job creation was one of the main reasons that lawmakers went along with the casino gambling plan, and Saturday begins the journey of hiring for Hollywood Casino.

Of the thousand jobs that are available, over 250 of them will be for dealers. The casino will hold a job fair at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kansas City, Kansas on Saturday. The career fair will run from 10AM to 3PM. Kansas residents have already prepared for the possibility of a career change.

"As soon as I heard that we were going to have new casinos here in Kansas, I took a dealing class to ensure I had a chance at a new career," said Walter Berhardt. "I hope I get hired at Hollywood Casino, because this could be the career break I have been waiting for. When the economy went down, I was laid off, and it has been a long couple of years."

Gamblers have yet to get a glimpse of the new casino as construction has continued over the past several months. For the facility to open on time, construction must stay at a steady pace. Any setbacks to the construction schedule could mean that the gaming facility will not open until next spring.

The Kansas Lottery was responsible for securing bids and then picking developers. Three of the first four developers chosen pulled out of their deals after the economy crashed in the US. The recession kept developers away, and last year lawmakers considered decreasing the minimum investment the developers would be required to make.

Casino dealers school for the new casino will take place in October. Casino executives claim that they will fill at least half of the dealers positions from the dealing school. Those attending the school will do so without being paid, but with the possibility of gaining a new career during tough economic times.
