Potawatomi to hire 250 for hotel

Last updated on July 3rd, 2019 at 07:15 pm

Potawatomi Bingo Casino will hire about 250 employees to staff its new hotel, which is expected to open late this summer.

The casino will hold two job fairs at its Expo Center, on June 2 and June 14, to fill the roles of door attendants, bell persons, front desk staff, hotel room attendants, valets, maintenance and food and beverage. Potawatomi plans to conduct on-site interviews and extend job offers at the fairs.

“We are looking to fill our hotel with team members who will extend the very best in service to our guests,” said Hassan Abdel-Moneim, hotel director. “We will pride ourselves on the fabulous experiences our guests will receive when they stay with us. The 250 team members we hire to open the hotel will play a primary role in delivering those experiences.”

The $150 million, 381-room hotel features floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Milwaukee. It includes a casual restaurant, a lobby bar, an exercise area and more than 12,000 square feet of meeting space.

“The hotel redefines our business. It brings a brand new dynamic to the property, and top-notch guest service is what will bring us success,” said Mike Goodrich, property general manager. “Those who join our team at the hotel will play an important role as we welcome many who might be visiting our casino, or even Milwaukee, for the first time.”

Potawatomi currently has about 2,600 employees, and hosts more than 5 million guests each year.
