Deluge expected for jobs at new Station casino

Station Casinos will begin taking applications Sunday for more than 1,000 jobs at Aliante Station, the company’s 10th major property in town, which is scheduled to open in North Las Vegas Nov. 11.

The first step in the hiring drill can be accomplished from home: Call a toll free number (800-720-2127) or go online (“Careers” at

Station expects to be swamped with applicants, considering that it received more than 100,000 for jobs at its Red Rock Resort in 2005, when the economy was booming and people weren’t as desperate for work.

With Nevada unemployment hitting a 14-year high, Station executives say they will have the luxury of being choosy with applicants, who will compete for jobs after the company places an undetermined number of transfers from other Station properties and reinstates some employees who were laid off. For some who live in North Las Vegas, Aliante Station will provide a new place to work that’s closer to home.

Aliante’s casino is slightly larger than Red Rock’s but the property has three fewer restaurants, less than half the number of rooms and 16 percent of the meeting and convention space of its sister casino in Summerlin. The 202-room Aliante Station also lacks a spa and a nightclub, though the 40-acre site is master planned to allow the resort to more than double in size.
