The Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel (Yaamava’ Resort & Casino) is making a decided effort to attract veterans to its workforce. They are encouraging veterans to begin a new career in all aspects of customer service with departments like Public Safety, Hotel Operations, Entertainment and more.
Service companies, manufacturers, hospitality and almost all other sectors of the economy are struggling to find workers according to many press reports and economic indicators.
“People are holding out for the Unicorn job they are looking for and many want to work from home so the jobs that will be hardest to fill are jobs like these in the service and hospitality industry where you actually have to go to work and interact with people,” said Economist Jay Prag of the Drucker School at the Claremont Colleges. “Targeting a specific community is a smart strategy that might bring in more applications and veterans have many skills that are important, not the least of which is a work ethic and the ability to show up to work on time regularly. These are people used to hard work and that is an in demand skill right now.”
Interested candidates can learn more about the event at sanmanuelcareers.com/veterans and attend the in-person hiring event November 10, 2021, from 10:00am – 6:00pm at the San Manuel Recruitment Center at Ontario Mills.
“It takes a special person to put their life on the line to protect the country that we hold so dear. Publicly recognizing our team members who have taken this risk is just one way we can express the gratitude of the Tribe and the enterprise for their years of service,” said Peter Arceo, General Manager, Yaamava’ Resort & Casino.
Veterans who visit the recruitment center at Ontario Mills can expect to receive on-the-spot job interviews, network with hiring managers, learn more about the many departments within the enterprise, and about working for a Tribal nation. Registration for the event is encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome.
