The new racino is hiring entry and mid-level employees.
A hiring center was opened last month in an effort to hire more people from the neighborhood. The company is said to hire 1,150 employees.
Local residents have already started to take advantage, like Shatima Williams and Najah Abdulkhabir but others are concerned. The Jamaica branch of the NAACP is worried that the company will not hire enough residents from Southeast Queens, which was hit especially hard by the economic recession.
The center will be open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Four RWNY staff members will be on hand to help people with the application process. Potential employees can either drop off their resumes or fill out an application.
