TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) – The Hollywood Casino Toledo is still looking to hire 1,200 workers and is hosting three job fairs for area residents who are interested in starting a career at the grand opening this spring. More than 27,000 applications have been submitted online but the majority of positions are still available in every department. The job fair will focus on positions in food and beverage, maintenance and janitorial, security and surveillance, gaming operations and finance.
Hiring will take place in the upcoming months.
"We're looking for around eight or 900 people still. We've got a good four or 500 down, but need eight or 900 more," explained Herndon.
That includes more than 300 people to be hired for various food and beverage positions to run three restaurants and a deli inside the complex.
"More specifically, it's our sous chef positions, cooks, bussers, servers...really all those classifications within that," said Herndon.
Due to uncertainty surrounding the state licensing process, it is unclear exactly when the casino will open for business.
