The 50,000-square-foot facility will have 500 slots, 20 gaming tables, a lounge, restaurant, and multi-purpose spaces.
The casino is looking to fill up to 150 new gaming and hospitality positions (around 150 other positions are to be filled by current employees transferring from Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs in Fraserville).
“The time has come for us to start looking for dynamic, high-energy individuals who are driven by service excellence and want to join the Shorelines Casino family,” says Bryan Buchanan, General Manager of Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs, in a media release.
The casino is looking for people to fill full-time and part-time positions in the following roles: card dealers, table games supervisors, food and beverage supervisors, bartenders, food and beverage servers, sous chef, cooks, and various other positions.
Previous gaming experience is not necessary to apply for the gaming positions.
