Wynn Resorts to hire 400

Encore Las Vegas opening nightclub and pool complex

Updated Friday, Feb. 26, 2010 | 1:14 p.m.

Wynn Resorts announced today that it will be hiring 400 people for a new nightclub and pool complex at Encore Las Vegas.

The resort will be begin accepting applications Saturday for Encore’s new nightclub, Surrender, and the Encore Beach Club. Group interviews will begin on March 11.

Positions will include cocktail servers, bartenders, hosts, promoters, lifeguards, pool attendants, security, as well as other positions.

Wynn Resorts Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Wynn first released the details of the $67 million, 60,000-square-foot venue during Thursday’s earnings conference call. Both Surrender and the Encore Beach Club will open Memorial Day weekend, a spokeswoman for the company said.

The company ripped out the Encore porte-cochere in November to being work on what it called an “entertainment complex.” Wynn said the ornate porte-cochere was built with the idea that projects like El-Ad’s Plaza Hotel and Boyd Gaming’s Echelon would be across the street.

“Because we have such a strong financial statement, and because we have the working capital that’s necessary to keep us competitive, we take off that unused porte-cochere and we put something on it that would generate profits,” Wynn said.
