Hundreds Of Jobs At Pechanga Being Filled As Job Fair Continues
TEMECULA, CA — Job seekers in the Temecula Valley had another shot at applying for the many positions up for grabs at Pechanga Resort & Casino. A job fair continued Wednesday — and again next week — from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m.
Wednesday’s event was focused on the Food and Beverage division. Interested applicants were encouraged to head to the Eagle’s Nest on the top floor of the hotel with their resume in hand and ready to speak with hiring managers on site.
The resort is heavily staffing ahead of the massive $285 million expansion which is currently underway. Among the many expanded amenities at Pechanga, two new restaurants, an additional room service kitchen, a third employee dining room and pool beverage service are being added.
Casino officials say another job fair will be held next Wednesday, July 19 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. That event will also be in the Eagle’s Nest, but is for those interested in working in the Hotel division which includes Spa, Golf, Housekeeping, Valet, Bell Desk, Front Desk and Concierge.
Job seekers are encouraged — but not required — to apply online before attending the Pechanga job fairs. Candidates should visit Pechanga.com/careers.
“In order to fully staff its $285 million resort expansion, Pechanga needs to fill a total of 750 positions primarily in Food & Beverage and Hotel Operations including the spa and pool areas,” Spokeswoman Ciara Green said in a news release. “The expansion includes an additional 568 hotel rooms and suites, a 4.5-acre pool complex, a two-story luxury spa, two new restaurants and another 68,000 square feet of additional meeting and event space.”
Last month, the resort held another pair of job fairs on June 15 and 16. Officials say 1,149 prospective employees met with hiring managers.
“Out of those, 439 applicants either received job offers or moved on to meet with department managers for an additional interview,” Green said.
If you haven’t been able to make it to a hiring event at the casino just yet, but are interested in attending one, there’s one last chance after next Wednesday. On Aug. 9, there will be a combination job fair for both the Food and Beverage and Hotel Operations units.
In order to work at Pechanga, most positions require candidates to be at least 21. However, there are some roles available to those 18 and older. Pay starts at minimum wage and up.
