SugarHouse nearing completion

The big-box style casino plans to open with more than 1,500 slots and 42 table games on a 45,000 square-foot gaming floor. SugarHouse plans to hire about 800 people to gear up for its opening, set for September.

Both construction and hiring are winding down.

“We are finishing up the interiors, and doing outdoor landscaping, curb cuts and sidewalks,” said spokeswoman Leigh Whitaker.

As for hiring, “we are probably 90 percent of the way there,” Whitaker said. “We are getting close to starting all-hands-on-deck employee training,” some of which will happen in the casino building, some off site.

The casino is filling positions related to administration, facilities, finance and accounting, food and culinary service, beverage and bar service, marketing and player services, security, slot operations, surveillance, table games and valet services. Those interested in working at SugarHouse can complete an online application at www.sugarhousecasino.com. The best applicants will be contacted for interviews.
