I hope the same DOESN'T happen at c.c.
That is very true, SinCityLegal!

My friend, and many, many others that I know of, have applied at several 'newly opening' casinos in the past and City Center has handled their hiring process better, IMHO, than most newly opening casinos in Las Vegas. The hiring process may not be 'perfect' by City Center, but it has most definitely been much better than other newly opening casinos in Vegas; also, consider the fact that the other newly opening casinos weren't involed in the largest hiring processes in this Nation's history; that being said, City Center has done fairly well. Fairly well. Fairly well, but CC may have missed out on some of the best potential employees; just sayin'. However, CC has probably hired some of the best potential employees, also.

Simply, the following is an example, however pertinant to the opening of a new casino.

Funny, because why would a Las Vegas 'Great' like Steve Wynn (in some opinions) or City Center (?) really give a sh** (simply a comparison) as far as hiring the ultimate 'best'.

Steve Wynn (POS [?], figure it out for yourself), however, I personally know a Federal Law Enforcement Agent, who protected Mr. W, during his daughter's kidnapping years ago, in the glorious 'Guarded' Gated (what a joke) Spanish Trail Community. Point being, Mr Wynn pees and sh*ts like the rest of us. Mr. Wynn just recently cashed out 10%, more or less, of his stocks (in a down market) for about $110 million (a 300+ times more than most average working people can hope to save in their life for their retirement in a life time). Less than 10% of Mr. Wynn's stock in Wynn/Encore, etc. for $110 million. Do you really think that Mr. Wynn gives a sh*t if his casino managers (possible nepotism) hire a 'less-than' bartender, 'less-than' front desk person, 'less-than' valet person, 'less-than' cook, 'less-than' black jack dealer, 'less-than' craps dealer, etc., etc., etc. (get the point)? You will all be dealt with in the near future if necessary (you'll be fired, put on-call, part-time, etc.). Thankfully, for Mr. Wynn and the other casino owners, it will be a very, very minimal financial loss (on a personal level for Mr. Wynn and the other ultra-rich casino owners, or corporate MGM Mirage's top peeps, hence accountants figuring out the #s), if even remotely measurable, in the over compensated gaming industry (over compensated=the owners and those that can afford to be the top stockholders [IPO, hence Initial Public Offering, investors originally called to invest, again, the very weathy] or hence, family and friends of the uber-rich owners of the casinos, the very weathly-again).

Study 'Sociology' and what the ulta/uber-rich think of their 'workers' (try Google), and what they think of 'you', their workers, their 'true' and 'ultimate' money makers--for them,what they (the casino owners, the ultra-rich, the uber-rich) think of their working ants.

The 'workers' are the ultimate front-line to the casino's guest/customers that make the guest/customers/clients/gamers, etc. ultimately return to the casinos due to the front-line workers (these front-line workers should be worshiped and appropriately compensated by the casino owners [given shares in the casino, an ultimate motivating factor as a share holder/owner in the casino that they, as an individual, would work harder, due to compentsation and a feeling of ownership, which would truly be appropriate] but the casino's employees are not given this choice, or, at the least, exposed to this option) however these employess are treated more like 'sh#*'(maybe a little harse) by the casino owners who owe their wealth to the casino workers, ultimately, in essence. I wonder if Mr. Wynn, or the other casino owners (upper corporates, or the corporate big-wig college boys/girls understand this concept). Because, in all honesty, all casinos, for the most part, are basically the same (same slot machines, same odds in blackjack, poker, craps, etc), until you run into the wonderfully fun, nice, understanding, compasionate, joking, humorous, personal, etc., front-line employees (whether front desk, bartender, valet, dealer, etc.). The front line employees sincerely define the ultimate difference from one casino to the next! Yes, some casinos have a more designed comfort, but if you're a gambler (those who pay Vegas' bills), you'll ultimately go where familiarity and personal understanding exist.

Welcome to the great divide of the uber-rich, middle class (yeah, right), and the uber-poor (those unfortunate enough that can't pull themselves out of poverty, although some don't try).

Just things to think about.

Well, to anyone who this might help, I received my call from the Aria today. My appointment to go to CC to accept a job offer is Saturday 8:45 am (odd time). Anyways, the point is their still may be hope for those who are still waiting. I had almost given up and started looking for jobs elsewhere. The position is a cook position (part-time) which is not what I wanted but it is a "foot in the door". I applied for full-time but in this market I have to take the first thing that comes along (yes I know that sounds desparate). So to those of you still waiting, hang in there and best of luck to all.

My social security number drama continues. The rep told me today to bring in my card and they will add it. Good thing I am working at the Convention Center tomorrow or this would be a long trip. I will try to see what information I can get in the am.
