CityCenter to begin making nearly 12,000 job offers Monday

Updated Friday, Sept. 18, 2009 | 2:32 p.m.

Monday will be a brighter day for some of Nevada’s unemployed.

CityCenter will begin extending employment offers to roughly 12,000 employees Monday in preparation for a December opening. The first new employees are expected to gather at CityCenter’s employment center to receive and celebrate their official offers.

The day will mark the first time offers have been made to non-MGM Mirage employees in the CityCenter hiring process. Most internal MGM Mirage job offers already have been discussed with current employees to accommodate the new property, a CityCenter spokesperson said Friday.

MGM Mirage announced in December 2008 that it was seeking more than 12,000 workers to fill positions at CityCenter and other company-owned properties. The company has held several job fairs since the announcement to fill the positions.

While the bulk of the resort's hiring efforts will be finished on Monday, positions are still being filled at Mandarin Oriental. The non-gaming hotel held two job fairs this week along with another Saturday to fill more than 500 positions.

In addition to CityCenter’s initial 12,000 positions, hospitality management firm The Light Group announced earlier this month that it would be hiring 350 workers for its three food and beverage outlets at the Aria Resort and Casino.

Vdara Hotel will kick off CityCenter’s opening on Dec. 1, with the Crystals retail and entertainment district on Dec. 3, Mandarin Oriental on Dec. 4 and Aria Dec. 16. The Harmon will open in late 2010.

Earlier today the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation announced unemployment reached a record high of 13.4 percent in August in Las Vegas with an estimated 135,100 workers out of a job.
