Cincinnati casino now hiring for more jobs

Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati announced Friday it is now taking applications for about 400 administrative, facilities and security jobs.

The casino plans to open spring of 2013 with about 1,700 full- and part-time employees. Hiring is being done in phases.

Butler and Warren county residents have a good chance of getting casino jobs as casino operators have committed to hiring 90 percent of its workforce from the Cincinnati metropolitan area.

The casino is now accepting applications for jobs such as accounting, finance, facilities, slots, security, Total Awards and culinary, company officials said. The casino said it’s seeking about a dozen accomplished chefs, sous chefs and restaurant managers to operate the property’s in-house dining and banquet venues.

Horseshoe Cincinnati will be about 100,000 square feet with approximately 2,000 slot machines, 85 table games and a 31-table World Series of Poker room. There will be three outward facing restaurants, casino officials say. A buffet restaurant, a quick-casual eatery, a VIP players lounge, a coffee shop and a feature bar will also be part of the casino.

On Thursday it was announced Jack Binion’s Steak would be one of the restaurants, along with Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville.

“Some newly posted positions require previous experience, but for many roles, a strong desire to deliver superior customer service with a positive and upbeat attitude is the main quality we will be looking for,” said Lisa Rexroat-Steele, vice president of human resources for the casino, in a statement. “Interested job candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as postings will be removed once the requisite number of applicants has been identified to move forward.”

Back in August, the casino started taking applications to fill about 750 jobs for table game and poker dealers, and game supervisors.

Recruiting for cooks, servers and other food and beverage positions will begin in December, casino officials said.

Job descriptions are posted online at The casino gave these requirements for job candidates:

• At least 21 years old at the time of application;

• A high school graduate, or possess a GED equivalent;

• Able to provide prior work history; resumes are not required but helps with screening;

• Flexible to work nights, weekends and holidays; and
