Las Vegas Recovery? Harrah's Is Hiring 500 Workers.

Well, here's a nice bit of news to make our Tuesday feel better. Apparently, Harrah's is hiring.

Harrah’s Entertainment is looking to hire 500 workers for positions at its Las Vegas casinos.

The casino operator announced today that it is looking to fill 125 full-time positions and 375 temporary, on-call or part-time positions.

Full-time positions include retail sales associates, guest room attendants, cooks, front desk agents, security officers, food servers, cashiers, assistant food and beverage managers, and line cooks. Seasonal positions include lifeguards, pool hosts and pool attendants.

Harrah’s is also looking to fill temporary positions for the World Series of Poker tournament, including sales associates, cashiers, valet and servers.

Harrah’s will host a job fair Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rio to begin its search.

So if you know any friends in need of work, let them know. Yeah, yeah, I know 375 of these 500 positions are part-time or on-call... But with Clark County unemployment still so high at 13.9%, every little bit helps.

And hopefully, this is just the start of more job openings coming on line as summer travel season quickly approaches.
