Planet Hollywood will start its recruiting process for 800 employees to staff its PH Towers with a two-day job fair next week, the company announced today.
The company will be hiring for both hourly and salaried positions in hotel operations, housekeeping, food and beverage, security, facilities and guest services. Job fairs will be hosted on July 30 and 31, from 9 a.m. to noon and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., at Planet Hollywood in the Grand Ballroom.
Start dates will begin in early October to prepare for the towers’ soft openings, ramping up in November for the official grand opening. The non-gaming, 52-story residential tower will include 1,200 suites and 28 penthouses.
The 800 jobs will be filled by workers not currently employed at Planet Hollywood because the resort did its internal hiring and shifting this week, a spokesperson for Planet Hollywood said.
The company said all full-time employees will receive benefits packages that include health care coverage and a 401K plan. Employees will received free meals in the team member dining room per eight hour shift.
The Planet Hollywood employment news comes in the same week two separate companies announced they were beginning their search for 500 employees each.
Las Vegas’ new Hard Rock Café location on the Strip announced Tuesday it would be hiring 500 employees for its summer opening. On Monday, CityCenter announced that its luxury, non-gaming hotel, The Mandarin Oriental, is also hiring more than 500 workers for the hotel’s December opening.
The Mandarin Oriental positions are part of the 12,000 employees CityCenter announced it would be hiring last December.
