After a few years trying to find a new job, my Mother told me about a job fair that the casino was putting on. When I presented my resume, I told the HR staff how motivated I was to join the team. The staff was impressed with how motivated I was along with my work skills and said I’d fit great in the maintenance department. A week later I was called in for an interview and was hired. I worked 9 months on grave shift and have been working days ever since.

The people that I work with are what keeps me here and I have met so many great people. I truly enjoy coming to work and doing the jobs that I do. Working here has been a real privilege for me and I have been able to grow with the casino and I hope to see it grow with the new relocation move. I plan to retire in 7 years followed by a Hawaiian vacation. – Brett Evans, Special Carpenter Maintenance Department

“I’ve made some great friends and met many fantastic people through my time here at EMC. The other benefits why I like working here is that we have awesome insurance, 401k, holiday gift giveaways and more. The rewards/gifts I have received for being here for 20 years made me happy (32 LED TV, $200.00 Gift Card and a free day off with pay). THANK YOU! And, I still love my job and I like the people I work with.” – Deborah Villa, Slot Shift Supervisor
