CLEVELAND (AP) — A new racino scheduled to open in northeast Ohio needs to hire 600 people.
Officials at ThistleDown, an existing thoroughbred racetrack in North Randall, southeast of Cleveland, are holding a job fair Friday and Saturday to fill positions including involving food and beverage, video lottery terminal services, security, wardrobe, marketing, personnel and finance.
The Plain Dealer reports that ThistleDown Racino is set to open in early April with more than 1,000 video lottery terminals that function like slot machines.
The job fair is at Cuyahoga Community College's Corporate College East in Warrensville Heights.
One racino — at Scioto Downs in Columbus — is already operating. ThistleDown is among six others around the state in various stages of licensing and construction.
