Tioga County’s second largest employer is looking to add to its workforce.
Tioga Downs Casino Resort is holding its annual job fairs as it looks to fill both seasonal jobs as well as fill some year-round openings.
Positions include food service in the resort’s 8 different eateries, racetrack jobs, dealers and other table game workers, security and positions at the hotel and Tioga Golf Club.
HR Director Karen Shelp says that as Tioga Downs grows, so does its positive impact on the local economy. “The people who are working here have extra income, it could be their sole income, or it could be extra, say they’re doing banquet staff and they’re bringing home a couple extra hundred dollars on the weekend. That is obviously going back to the community because they need to spend the money and hopefully, it’s in the community.”
The first of two job fairs is tomorrow from 11:30 to 2:30 with the first hour reserved for military veterans.
The second will be next Tuesday from 3 to 7.
Both fairs take place in the PJ Clarke’s restaurant on site.
