Vernon Downs Casino Hotel and Racetrack is looking to fill positions throughout the facility as they prepare for the upcoming 2013 Harness Racing season. This season is especially notable because it marks the 60th anniversary of the racetrack.

Vernon Downs is holding job fairs on Saturday, March 9 from 2pm to 6pm, and on Wednesday, March 13 from 11am to 6pm in the Hotel’s Event Center. We are looking to hire people to work in all areas of the operation-this, in turn, will help boost the local economy.

Available jobs range from seasonal employees to part-time and full-time positions. The property also offers an All-Suites Hotel and Convention Facility, which also have job openings. During the Job Fairs, applications will be accepted immediately and Department Managers will conduct same-day interviews with on-the-spot hiring.

According to Vice President and General Manager of Vernon Downs Casino, Scott Freeman, “Vernon Downs has shown significant growth over the past seven years, and we are proud to be in a position to employ additional local workers who can continue to grow with us”.

Vernon Downs kicks off the seventh season of live harness racing and 60th Anniversary of their racetrack on Friday, April 12th with food, family fun and fireworks to cap off the evening.

Vernon Downs Casino Hotel and Racetrack employs over 350 people and is open year-round with video gaming machines, simulcast horse racing, restaurants, sports bar, hotel and new event center.
