A job fair will be held later this month to fill more than 500 jobs at the Coachella Valley’s latest tribal casino, which is set to open in downtown Cathedral City by the end of the year, it was announced Monday.

Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City will be the third local gaming operation for the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.

Job seekers are invited to the Mary Pickford Theater in Cathedral City from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 27for a chance to land a job working in a variety of departments, including slot machines, table games, and food and beverage services.

“Attendees are encouraged to bring an updated resume, samples of work and any other documents they believe might assist them in securing a highly sought-after position at any of our Agua Caliente Casinos,” according to a casino statement.

Applicants will be required to wear face coverings, maintain six feet of physical distance from other people and have their temperatures taken as precautions against the coronavirus.

The Mary Pickford Theater is located at 36850 Pickfair St. Applicants are asked to bring multiple copies of their resumes.

Construction began last November on the tribe’s latest gaming venture, which is being constructed on a 13-acre site on the northwest corner of East Palm Canyon and Date Palm drives. The tribe also operates casinos in Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage.

The casino will comprise 30,000 square feet of gaming space, including room for 530 slots and eight table games. An adjacent 12,000-square-foot outdoor pavilion is slated to host live entertainment, special events and other gatherings. Several restaurants and bars are also planned for the property.

Beyond the casino, the tribe is either building or in the early stages of constriction on other projects that would continue to increase the tribe’s business footprint in the Coachella Valley.

A $250 million sports and entertainment arena is planned for downtown Palm Springs, near the tribe’s casino and the location of the Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza, which is being constructed on the corner of North Indian Canyon Drive and East Tahquitz Canyon Way. The plaza will house the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum and other tribal business entities, and is set to open by the end of the year.
