LEUPP, Ariz. (AP) - The Navajo Nation is looking to fill 800 jobs at its newest casino opening this year near Flagstaff.
A job fair is being held Friday through Sunday in Flagstaff to fill accounting, human resources, marketing, hotel administration, food and beverage, training and other positions.
Drug screening and background checks are being done on site, and candidates could be offered a job on the spot. Navajos will be given preference for employment.
The $150 million Twin Arrows casino along Interstate 40 will have a hotel, conference center, spa and golf course.
It is scheduled to open in mid-May. The Navajo Nation operates three casinos in New Mexico. The Twin Arrows casino will be the first on the Arizona portion of the reservation.
