Hard Rock’s new Strip location to hire 500 workers

Hard Rock Cafe

There’s a bit of good news for Nevada’s unemployed coming later this week.

The Strip’s new Hard Rock Café, set to open this summer, is looking to hire more than 500 employees to staff the restaurant’s second Las Vegas location.

The Hard Rock will be hiring for full- and part-time staff members for positions including supervisors, hosts, servers, bartenders, bussers, retail associates and cooks. Hard Rock’s recruiting team will be hosting a job fair from July 28 to Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Las Vegas Hilton.

The new 42,000-square foot, three-story Hard Rock will include a 950-seat restaurant, a live concert venue and a rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia shop. The new location will reside at the Showcase Mall beside the MGM Grand.

The news comes a day after CityCenter announced that its luxury, nongaming hotel, The Mandarin Oriental, is also hiring more than 500 workers for the hotel’s December opening. The Mandarin Oriental positions are part of the 12,000 employees CityCenter announced it would be hiring last December.

The Hard Rock Hotel, which is separate from the Hard Rock Café, held a job fair last month to hire 800 workers for its $750 million expansion project, bringing its employment total to 1,200 by the end of 2009.
