The Cromwell Hiring for Hundreds of Positions

One of the Strip's newest properties is in a hiring frenzy. The Cromwell, which is what the remodeled Bill's Gamblin' Hall is now called, held a hiring fair Monday for nearly 200 food and beverage jobs. The resort is mostly hiring bartenders and waitresses at this point.

Anyone who missed out on Monday's job fair, don't worry the Cromwell has about 1,000 openings that it needs to fill before the opening. They will be holding job fairs in the next few weeks to do so.

"It is great! We are really proud that we're providing so many jobs between the Cromwell and The Linq. It is exciting to have that happening in Las Vegas. We're really proud to be the ones that are able to bring that," Vice President and General Manager of the Cromwell Karie Hall said.

Officials at the resort say they got hundreds of applicants Monday and were planning on interviewing people until 5 p.m. The Cromwell's grand opening is in May.

MGM Resorts Gives More to Boots to Business Program

MGM Resorts Gives More to Boots to Business Program

MGM Resorts International announced Wednesday that it is giving more money to a program that helps veterans transition into the civilian workforce.

The Boots to Business program is run through the American Red Cross and finds veterans to enter MGM Resort’s management-training program.

“This isn't charity. They're not doing this for publicity. The MGM and American Red Cross are really passionate about this program. I'm only one of four or five that completed this last round of Boots to Business and each one of us had a similar story. When we walked into this company, we were welcomed with open arms,” recent graduate of the program and 26-year veteran of the Air Force Wilson Edgell said.

The resort company’s grant of $250,000 will allow even more former members of the military make the jump to a civilian job.

Convention Business Credited for Valley Visitor Increase

Convention Business Credited for Valley Visitor Increase

 

According to Las Vegas economists, 2012 was a big year for the valley with 800,000 more visitors coming to the Las Vegas Strip.

Economists say convention traffic played a big role in those increasing numbers.

An estimated $4.1 billion was generated by the convention industry last year as the city played host to 10 major shows. The Las Vegas Convention Center alone accounted for about one in four convention visits.

However, it is not just spending at the actual convention. It is also the spending convention-goers do outside the convention hall.

"I did some gambling at the slot machines, and went to the buffet there," vendor Steve Lee said.

That is the type of spending that helps boost the Strip's bottom line and supports nearly half of the valley's workforce, Jeremy Aguero with Applied Analysis said, during a presentation to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Tuesday.
