Atlantic City to host city-wide job fair on 2 June

By Gambling Insider

Atlantic City is gearing up for a busy summer as it prepares to host a “city-wide” job fair on Thursday 2 June.

The Casino Association of New Jersey (CANJ), in partnership with the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE), has invited prospective employees to Atlantic City as part of a large-scale recruitment drive.

HR representatives from the city’s nine casinos will be present at the Atlantic City Convention Center next Thursday to showcase employment opportunities and find suitable candidates for various positions.

These include “tables games dealers, food and beverage servers, security officers, hotel housekeeping, culinary jobs and much more.” The event will be free and open to the public; attendees will “have the opportunity to apply, interview and be hired on the spot.”

This comes after Unite Here Local 54, a union representing Atlantic City casino workers, issued a travel alert to prospective visitors, warning of “labour disputes.”

Contracts at all nine casinos are set to expire on 31 May, with workers taking this opportunity to negotiate wage increases.

The union claims employees’ pay has not kept pace with profits and said: “Our members are prepared to do whatever it takes to win the raises they need to get by in this economy.”

There may well be a link between the city’s upcoming job fair and the union’s call for higher wages, as well as current labour shortages in the US.

Atlantic City has been in recovery mode after Covid-19 significantly impacted the casino industry, but recent revenue figures suggest that the city has rebounded from the pandemic’s worst effects.

To attract new visitors ahead of this year’s summer travel season, Atlantic City recently promoted its latest redevelopments that include major capital investments in the city’s casino industry.
