Las Vegas Job Growth Picks Up Steam

The RJ published details this morning on the job boom in Las Vegas. True to character, they pitched it with a negative tone, but it’s hard not to get excited about these numbers:

The $675 million Aliante Station, which is scheduled to open Nov. 11, began taking applications for its nearly 1,200 jobs July 6.

Dennis Shipley, corporate director of human resources for Cannery Casino Resorts, said the company received approximately 20,000 applications for 1,200 jobs for its new $250 million Eastside Cannery.



Wynn Resorts won’t start interviewing job candidates until early August, Rosol said; job offers will follow in late September.



The nearly 7,700 new jobs these three properties are bringing to the market are just the beginning of a jump in employment in the industry.

And let’s not forget M Resort, which has quietly been making headway under the radar:

•The $1 billion M Resort will begin taking applications in September to fill the nearly 2,000 jobs at the hotel-casino scheduled to open next spring.
