Station Casinos Inc. of Las Vegas, which already employs about 12,000 people, today said it plans to fill more than 1,000 positions as it beefs up staffing and takes back restaurant space that had been leased out.

The company, which filled more than 160 positions in October, today said that of the 1,000-plus jobs to be filled now, 500 will be full-time and the rest part-time.

About 300 of the positions are for the return of the Grand Cafes in spaces in five properties that had been leased to Coco's. Company spokeswoman Lori Nelson said that of those 300 positions, about 150 are new as Station has different staffing levels for the cafes than Coco's did.

"We know we're in the most competitive gaming market in the world and our guests have a lot of choices when it comes to entertainment, which is why we need to ensure that we earn our guests' loyalty each and every day by providing the best service and value possible," Kevin Kelley, Station chief operating officer, said in a statement today. "The increase in staffing will allow us to continue to enhance our service levels and deliver on our commitment to exceed our guests' expectations."

The jobs are in guest service including hotel management, dealers, slots service ambassadors, security and food and beverage positions such as cooks and food servers.

Today's announcement does not involve the new $157 million Gun Lake casino in western Michigan, which Station will manage for the Gun Lake Tribe of Pottawatomi Indians and which opens next month.

Station transferred some managers from Las Vegas to Michigan for that casino last year, but most of Gun Lake's 750 employees are locals and they're now in training.
