Downstream Casino Resort to conduct job fair

QUAPAW, Okla. — Downstream Casino Resort will conduct a job fair from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Pavilion, behind the existing hotel.

Downstream aims to hire at least 75 workers before its second hotel opens in December.

General Manager Steven Drewes said the hotel needs to hire workers quickly, and he hopes to hire most of the workers during the job fair.

Downstream currently employs about 1,150. It added 40 positions in the past 18 months — 20 with a new preschool last year and another 20 when it opened a convenience store and RV park in June.

The second hotel has created about 400 temporary construction jobs.

“We’re opening 152 new rooms, a spa, a couple of new bars, a restaurant, an indoor pool and a fantastic coffee shop, so we need good team members to fill a wide variety of positions,” said Jani Cummings, assistant general manager, in a news release about the job fair.

Positions to be filled include guest room attendants, housekeepers, front desk agents, security officers, spa professionals, bartenders, servers, maintenance personnel, cooks and coffee shop attendants.

Downstream also offers a benefits package that includes fully paid medical, vision and dental insurance, accrued paid time off, free meals during work hours and a retirement plan with employer match.

Details

For more information about the job fair, people may call human resources manager Hillary Shadwick at 918-919-6217. One may also apply online at downstreamcasino.com by clicking on the employment link at the bottom of the page.
