Hopefuls Seek Buffalo Casino Job - Monday 26th of June 2006

BUFFALO, New York – As reported by the Buffalo News: "Nearly a thousand prospective blackjack dealers, pit cashiers, food service workers, security guards and even accountants packed an employment preview for the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo Thursday.

"Hundreds of job-seekers gathered at the Adam's Mark Hotel, site of the job fair, more than an hour before the doors opened - and about 18 months ahead of the Buffalo casino's expected debut.

"…Corey Dickens of Buffalo, who previously worked at the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, attended the job fair to get his name on the list for a slot machine operations position.

"…A steady stream of 'casino curious' locals snaked their way through a ballroom at the downtown hotel, taking the opportunity to have a quick chat with Seneca Gaming Corp. managers about future employment at the planned gambling facility. While they were not able to drop off resumes or schedule interviews, they were able to pick up information sheets on various job titles and get their names on a list to get a call when formal hiring begins.

"By the end of the four-hour employment fair, 927 area residents had put their names on the list.

"…The Buffalo job preview was aimed at giving local residents information about the wide range of jobs that will be available when the Buffalo Creek Casino opens in the city's Cobblestone District in late 2007, said Christina Jimmerson, human resources director at Seneca Niagara Casino…"
