The Future is Looking UP at the DOWNS! New Convention Center Will Create More Jobs!

Vernon Downs Casino & Hotel is looking to fill many positions throughout the facility as we prepare for the upcoming 2011 Harness Racing season and the opening of our new convention center.

Vernon Downs will be taking applications immediately and will be holding two Job Fairs on Saturday, March 5 from 8am to 1pm and on Wednesday, March 9 from 11am to 6pm upstairs at the track in the Gold Cup Room.

Vernon Downs is looking to hire people to work in all areas of the operation, which, in turn, will help boost the local economy.

These jobs range from part-time, seasonal employees to full-time management positions in areas as diverse as Security, Food & Beverage, Gaming, Racing and Hotel Operations.

The property also offers an all-suites hotel and is currently undergoing a
new Convention Center Expansion project that will create additional job openings.

According to Chairman of American Racing & Entertainment Jeff Gural, “Vernon Downs has shown significant growth over the past 5 years, and we are proud to be in a position to employ additional local workers who can continue to grow with us.”

During the Job Fairs, Department Managers will conduct same-day interviews, with on-the-spot hiring and drug testing.

Vernon Downs Casino & Hotel kicks off our sixth season of live harness racing on Friday, April 15th with food, family fun and fireworks to cap off the evening.

Vernon Downs Casino & Hotel currently employs almost 300 people and is open year-round with video gaming machines, simulcast horse racing, a restaurant, sports bar, and special entertainment events.

Vernon Downs is located close to Routes 5 and 31 in Vernon, NY.
