POLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Hundreds lined up at the Poland Spring Resort Saturday to apply for jobs at the new Oxford Casino.
This is the second job fair the casino has held. The first job fair focused on the approximately ninety dealer positions at the casino. Casino managers Saturday interviewed candidates for every kind of position in the business, from surveillance, to casino operations, to maintenance. Casino managers and applicants are learning just how much competition there is for these kinds of jobs in Oxford County.
"I got here right around ten and I thought there was about a hundred people in front of me," Philip Brown of Poland said. "When I checked in I was 390, so there's was almost four hundred people in front of me. I couldn't believe it."
Casino management says they will continue to announce new career opportunities on their website as they become available. The casino is slated to open early this summer.
