Tioga Downs Casino to Host Two Job Fairs

Tioga Downs Casino is looking to fill many positions throughout the facility as they prepare for the upcoming 2011 Harness Racing season. This, in turn, will help boost a sluggish local economy.

Tioga Downs is looking to hire people to work in all areas of casino and racetrack operations.

These jobs range between part-time, full-time and seasonal employment.

During the Job Fairs, Department Managers will conduct interviews, pre-employment testing and make same-day job offers.

During Tuesday’s Job Fair, local and regional employers will also be in attendance and the New York State Department of Labor will be on hand to assist job seekers.

Businesses slated to attend Tuesday’s Job Fair include:
Tioga Downs Casino

And more…
