A job fair will be held early next month to fill more than 300 jobs across three casinos owned by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians in the Coachella Valley, it was announced Wednesday.
The vacancies span the tribe’s two operating casinos in Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, along with the tribe’s latest tribal venture, which is set to open in downtown Cathedral City by the end of the year.
Job seekers are invited to the Mary Pickford Theater in Cathedral City from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 5 for a chance to land a job working in a variety of departments, including slot machines, table games, and food and beverage services.
Applicants must wear face coverings, maintain six feet of physical distance from other people and have their temperatures taken as precautions against the coronavirus.
It will be the tribe’s second job fair in recent months.
“We are pleased to announce that our job fair held earlier this summer created hundreds of job opportunities for the residents of Coachella Valley, and to build on that success, another job fair will be hosted to assist with the backfilling of many positions that current Agua Caliente team members were offered via transfers and promotions,” said Robin Stone, vice president of human resources for Agua Caliente Casinos.
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 casino will comprise 30,000 square feet of gaming space, including room for 530 slots and eight table games. An adjacent 12,000-square-feet outdoor pavilion is slated to host live entertainment, special events and other gatherings. Several restaurants and bars are also planned for the property.
Meanwhile, the Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza, which is being constructed on the corner of North Indian Canyon Drive and East Tahquitz Canyon Way in Palm Springs, is also set to open by the end of the year. The plaza will house the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum and other tribal business entities.
Plans to convert a patch of tribal land in downtown Palm Springs into a 250,000-acre sports and entertainment arena fell apart previously.
