The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino has begun its search for 800 more employees with the start of a job fair today and Tuesday.

The job fair tied to the hotel-casino’s $750 million expansion project will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today and continue Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Hard Rock recently hired 400-plus employees for the reopening of The Joint and the new steakhouse rare 120°. The 800 employees to be hired by the end of the year will bring the resort’s new hire total to 1,200.

Carrie Messina, vice president of human resources at Hard Rock, said the property will hire 400 workers through July for the first phase of the expansion, the North Tower, set to open this summer. Positions will include housekeeping staff, front desk agents, room reservation agents and environmental service attendants, Messina said.

Another 400 will be hired for the South Tower in October and November. Positions in the South Tower will include spa attendants and dealers to service the new spa and casino in the tower as well as standard hotel positions.

Hard Rock's expansion project began in 2007 and will be completed in early 2010.

The expansion includes two new hotel towers -- which will bring Hard Rock's room total from 650 to 1,525 -- the newly opened Joint, 30,000 square feet of additional casino space, a new nightclub, spa, health club, an expanded pool and will add 75,000 additional square feet of meeting and convention space.
