Casino restaurant in Ohio looking to fill 200 jobs

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A restaurant at Cincinnati's new $400 million casino slated to open in March is seeking candidates for 200 jobs.

The hiring event for Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurant began Sunday at Xavier University's Cintas Center. But it will continue from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. through Tuesday. The restaurant will be adjacent to Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati's main entrance in downtown Cincinnati.

Some available positions include hosts, servers, bartenders, culinary supervisors and line cooks. There also are openings for cashiers, and restaurant and retail supervisors.

The 14,000 sq. ft. restaurant will seat about 400 customers

The casino will be the last of four voter-approved casinos to open in the state in less than a year. Casinos in Cleveland, Toledo and Columbus opened last years.
