Lot of people gathered at Show Me Center on Tuesday at Isles Cape Girardeau casino that plans to hire the services of approx 450 workers. The aspirant job seekers were expecting bright employment chances with this casino that is going to open this fall. Isle spokeswoman, Jill Alexander commented that about 50 people had already lined up, with the beginning of first session at 8 a.m. A total of approx 300 people attended the three sessions on Tuesday. Same process would continue on Thursday too. About one dozen of department heads had already been hired by the casino, she said. John Mehner, CEO and president of Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce – the partner of Isle for the information sessions expressed that the jobs would reduce the unemployment situation in the area to great extent.
Some people who were already employed expected better opportunities. Mehner said all types of people would get chances of employment with the casino. The 51 years old Cape Girardeau hospital beverage worker wants to work with a smile and leave with a smile. The 55 years old woman, now dealing blackjack in Metropolis III, wants to join the Cape Girardeaus casino to cut short her journey for the job.
Alexander said that hiring the employees is being done and they would be given training. The table game dealers would be the next to be hired who would get 6-8 weeks training. The casino would give training to about 250 students at Isles dealer in the first week of Aug. The candidates would be able to come in interaction with the casino representatives in each department, i.e. IT support & marketing set up tables, food and beverage, table games & slots, security & surveillance, accounting and finance. Mehner said that like all other employers, Isles employees would be from outside. Dr. Bruce Domazilicky, director of the Center for Economic and Business Research at Southeast Missouri State University said that approx 15,000 workers from other counties visit Cape Girardeau on daily basis for their jobs. He said that 450 more jobs in the area would be reflected in the employment rate in the whole region.
