Twin River Expansion Requires Hundreds More Employees

If you know somebody in need of a job, you might want to steer them to Twin River.  The slot parlor is going to full casino gambling  this summer and Twin River spokeswoman Patti Doyle says they’re still looking to hire at least 300 workers, mostly dealers. She describes the qualities they’re looking for.

"We look for the best possible candidates, that have great attitude, great aptitude. We will look for a combination of experienced dealers as well as those who perhaps are unexperienced (sic) but have that great attitude and aptitude and are willing to learn and wanting to learn."

Twin River’s expansion to table games was made possible by voter approval of a referendum last fall.  Starting July 1st, Twin River will offer blackjack, craps, roulette and baccarat.

The slot parlor in Lincoln has already hired about 300 people for the expansion but still needs scores more, according to Doyle.

"We’re looking for at this point perhaps the bulk of the dealers, some gaming floor associates, back-of-house personnel. So it’s that kind of jobs that we’re looking to fill at this stage."

Doyle says applicants need not have experience to apply. Twin River has a training program. The qualities they most desire: a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.
