Today the casino announced that any employee that is hired by October 1st, and in good standing as of December 1st, will be in the running to win a brand new 2022 Nissan Kicks SUV. The contest is part of a larger recruitment effort that aims to fill over 200 positions as the casino continues to expand and re-staff after the pandemic.

Gun Lake Casino will host multiple recruitment events in July to fill needs in anticipation of the expansion. The interviews will focus on open positions for multiple departments including, food and beverage, table games, slots, cage, operations, and security.

On Tuesday, July 6 a hiring event will occur in Gun Lake Casino’s parking lot, located at 1123 129th Avenue, Wayland, MI 49348. Open interviews will take place from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

On Wednesday, July 7, in Gun Lake Casino’s Harvest Buffet, candidates can participate in open interviews from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer for Gun Lake Casino says the idea is to reward existing and new team members:

The creative incentives offered to our existing, and new team members, like this car giveaway, reveals how Gun Lake Casino strives to be a premiere employer.

Not only do we wish to hire new team members for our upcoming $100 million expansion, but we also want to ensure that our current team is shown appreciation for their contributions to the success of Gun Lake Casino.

We have gone outside the box to demonstrate our commitment to those who are employed at Gun Lake Casino, and who make us the best entertainment destination in West Michigan.
