BALTIMORE, Md. - After a 30-minute wait in line, Natalie Klecz is going in. She has been without a job since April 4.
“…Contract ended for NIH," said Klecz.
She's from Baltimore and so is Michael Niroda.
"I'm here to get a job with Horseshoe Casino," said Niroda.
As the employment line outside M&T Bank Stadium forms, pieces are lifted and put in place just down the street. The Horseshoe Casino will open up 1,700 jobs.
This week, managers are looking to fill positions for food and beverage, facilities, cashiers and slot attendants. Staying local is their plan.
"One of the things we really want to do is provide a great experience to our guests that come in. And being in the business for 20 years, you have a lot of guests who have questions about the surrounding area. And no better way to answer those questions then to hire people who are in and around Baltimore City," said Chad Barnhill, Sr. V.P., Horseshoe Casino Baltimore.
One lady wanted us to hide her face. She skipped out on work to explore other opportunities.
"There's probably a lot of people here today that are looking for better opportunity but don't want to mess up the opportunity that they have," she said.
Smart phones helped save some time on the application process, and some got hired right on the spot.
"I think it's a really nice job. They pay well. It's good to be around people. I'm a people person," said Ashley Averette, who waited in line.
So to those making bets in downtown Baltimore, you can bet on seeing some familiar faces later this summer.
"I need to make money to keep food on the table," said Klecz.
You have another day to apply for a job at the Horseshoe Casino at M&T Bank Stadium on Wednesday, May 7, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The manager says 300 dealers are going through a 12-week course right now. The casino is set to open late August or early September.
