First Job Fair Scheduled For Saturday

HOT SPRINGS, AR (Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012) – Oaklawn will have nearly triple its work force by the time its live race meet starts Friday, Jan. 11 and in order to ensure it has enough staff for the 56-day season, there will be three job fairs starting Saturday, Dec. 8. The other two job fairs will be held Friday, Dec. 14 and Saturday, Dec. 15. All three will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or until all jobs are filled at Oaklawn’s Business Administration office on Golf Links Road.

“These job fairs have been very successful ways of filling our employment needs with many people returning year after year and even moving into full-time positions,” said Director of Human Resources Angela Boring. “We expect to hire around 400 people from the more than 600 people that will apply.”

The Dec. 8 job fair will be for people wishing to work in the Mutuel Department, which places and cashes wagers for customers. The Dec. 14 fair will be to hire for the Housekeeping and Maintenance Departments and the Dec. 15 one will be for the Food & Beverage department.
