More jobs for those looking for work: M Resort hiring another 250 - Las Vegas Sun

M Resort hiring another 250

New resort also bringing in more gaming machines and ATMs

By Steve Green
Thu, Mar 5, 2009 (8:50 a.m.)


The newly opened M Resort Spa Casino said today it's hiring another 250 employees in order to better service customers, some of whom have endured long lines at its restaurants and rewards club signup stations.
The resort, which opened Sunday with some 1,800 workers and 390 hotel rooms, said it's also adding gaming machines and ATM/cash kiosks and has been opening its restaurant terraces early to serve diners.
The property at Las Vegas Boulevard and St. Rose Parkway said food and beverage business during its first three days was nearly double the 5,000 daily covers -- or parties served -- that were projected.
"We're taking immediate steps to hire more motivated team members to reinforce our service commitment and assist our guests. The demand is there and the people have expressed their love for our product in just these few short days. Our guests are coming from all over Las Vegas, including in-market tourists, not just from our neighboring communities south of the Strip," Chairman and Chief Executive Anthony Marnell III said in a statement.
The hotel-casino said that overall it has been twice as busy as projected and has added sign-up stations for its iMagine Rewards Club, bringing the number to 20 enrollment stations. Some 20,000 customers had signed up during the first few days of operation for the rewards club, which had a goal of enrolling 25,000 people during the entire month.
The resort plans to have the new employees in place by next week.

Default Fry's on Sunday

Went off and bought me a new big screen for the PC. What a wonderful decision. Best thing I have bought since I remarried.

Fry's was humming. Parking lot fuller than I have seen in a long time. Almsot every register in use and there were still people waiting in line.

Actually the whole Center looked to be swinging. Amazing. I though we were all starving and felt a little guilty about spending money on a project that would only make my life a little better rather than something I could eat.

Interesting! This same observation can be echoed here in my current town.

Last week, I almost got trampled at the mall... too many shoppers! Sold my house at full retail in one week. Etc...

It would appear that the global crisis is nothing more than a sensationalized smoke screen, designed to rush absurd pork spending through before anyone notices. Oops, did I synthesize an opinion that may not be popular? But I digress... that is a post for another section of this site.

i was at the airport this weekend, empty, and stores/restaurants were closed in D gates and they're not open till midnite anymore, mostly now close at 9 PM, very sad...

you guys still dont know what other ppl are buying and those stores could be losing money on sales, plus Costco just had a grand opening sale (the remodeled one), maybe that's why its busy? Fry's is probably busy only because Circuit City and CompUSA are now gone...

if everything is so busy, how come they are all skimping on hours, labor, and employment?

That is good news but many resorts, especially at their grand opening, ALWAYS hire more than they need and they ALWAYS shed jobs once they know what their volume is going to be.

But - for the here and now - that is fantastic news as it gives people a chance to make money (like myself), which is definitely needed nowadays.

It seems that news is intended to make people think they can go apply for these 250 jobs. I wonder if the M will hire from the apps they already had, and people that had already passed some of the interviews.

That comment about Frys and others being busy -- I think the whole town is busy. I was just telling my friend in Indiana this morning that if you did not watch tv or read the papers/internet you would not know there was a terrible economy. That said, no one in my family has been laid off. Our everyday quality of life is almost the same as before, just some less as we are tip earners. I know we are fortunate to not have been laid off yet, I am not late on my mortage, and we still have money to spend.

Exactly.
All that's on the news is "Doom & gloom". All the malls are packed......same with Walmart, Target etc.
