CINCINNATI - Cincinnati's new downtown casino is kicking off its first hiring frenzy Wednesday as it works toward its goal of hiring about 1,700 Tri-State residents.

The Cincinnati Horseshoe Casino is hiring a total of about 1,700 positions to staff the casino, which is located at 1000 Broadway Street. From Aug. 22 through Sept. 16, recruiters are looking to hire about 750 dealers for table games and supervisor positions.

As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, Horseshoe Casino says 1,350 applicants have applied online for those 750 positions.

Prior casino experience is not required to apply. However, candidates must be at least 21 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, be willing to work flexible hours or holidays, able to attend a several-week training session, willing to undergo a drug and background check and be able to fulfill requirements of the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

Additional phases of recruiting will be announced later in the year and will include non-gaming and food and beverage positions as well as management and administrative jobs.

Applications can be submitted online through the casino's website at http://www.horseshoe.com/info/cincinnati/careers.html .

Casino recruiters said they expect a great turnout of applications from Tri-State residents as about 70,000 northern Ohio residents applied for 1,600 jobs available at the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, which opened to the public in May.

The casino has partnered with community organizations in the city to provide computer access to applicants. Some of those locations include:
