Most of the positions will be full-time and, because the casino is nonsmoking, Hollywood Casino will not be hiring individuals who smoke.

Hollywood will eventually have a total of 2,000 employees and the other 1,400 employees, who will be doing food service, maintenance, etc., will be hired in May or June. Dealers need to be hired early in order to be trained.

The new central Ohio casino will offer 160,000-square-feet of gaming and should be opening later this year.
