he Pokagon Band of Potawatomi is hosting two job fairs next week in Portage and Michigan City to recruit employees for its smoke-free Four Winds Casinos in South Bend, Indiana, and southwestern Michigan.
Both hiring events are scheduled on June 22 at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, 6295 Melton Road, Portage; and June 23 at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, 401 W. Kieffer Road, Michigan City.
Four Winds specifically is looking to recruit experienced table games staff, including dealers, floor persons, pit managers and shift managers, over a month after signing a gaming compact with the state of Indiana that permits table games at the tribal casino.
Dealers at Four Winds can earn up to $25 per hour combining the base pay rate and tips. Hourly tables games workers hired by July 31 also are eligible for a $2,000 sign-on bonus.
In addition, Four Winds is seeking students for a five-week dealer training school in South Bend, with six-hour classes held on either Tuesdays and Wednesdays or Saturdays and Sundays. Trainees will be paid $12 per hour while learning how to become a table games dealer. A bonus of $2,000 is available to trainees hired by Four Winds Casino.
