Casino Giant opens job application website.
In the fourth quarter of 2007, the gambling giant MGM Grand will open its new hotel and entertainment destination in Detroit. In an attempt to garner employees for the site, MGM Grand has announced a special website where interested individuals can apply for jobs at the new site.
The website will help MGM Grand find the more than 1,000 employees it needs in advance of the grand opening later this year. The online job application site can be found at www.mgm1job.com. Individuals will be able to search jobs, submit their application, and schedule a job interview through the online process.
Vice President of Human Resources Debbie Thomas said that billboards advertising the employment opportunities and the online address are going up in the Detroit area today as part of the company's recruitment effort to find the best possible employees.
‘We're looking for people who are enthusiastic, committed to excellence and who take pride in their work,’ said Debbie Thomas. ‘They should be flexible to work days, evenings, weekends, and holidays and be seeking a gratifying career. The number one requirement is a great personality and a desire to provide excellent customer service.’
She added that MGM Grand Detroit would be hiring people for both salaried and hourly positions in a variety of job classifications including administration, environmental services, finance, food and beverage, hotel operations, human resources, marketing, security, table games, valet and wardrobe.
As a follow up, MGM Grand Detroit will open a new staffing center in late March in downtown Detroit where job interviews and job training will take place.
