The Four Winds Casino and Resort is still under construction in New Buffalo Township, and now, management has started to build a workforce.
The development comes at a time when Michigan’s unemployment rate is the highest of any state in the nation.
On Thursday, the Four Winds began posting openings and accepting applications online.
The response was overwhelming.
Some 12-hundred applications were received the first day, according to Terri Mays with Michigan Works!
The Four Winds is expected to eventually hire some 2,000 full time workers, and 700-part timers.
The postings include positions for a Poker Dealer and a Bell Captain, but the Four Winds is also looking for an Accounts Payable Clerk, and even a Spokesmodel.
“A lot caught my eye, lot that caught my eye,” said Tim Evans as he filled out the 10-page form at the Benton Harbor Michigan Works! Office today.
The application process is being done entirely over the internet.
If you don’t have a computer, you can use one at a local
Michigan Works! Office.
Applications are available on the following websites:
