When it opens later this month, Resorts World Las Vegas is expected to have more than 6,000 employees.

As of Wednesday morning, according to Resorts World executive director of talent acquisition Lori Calderon, human resources officials with the new Strip resort and entertainment complex had received over 132,000 applications for various position.

As Calderon spoke Wednesday, in a building on the Resorts World campus being used as an employment center, new and prospective employees scurried about.

A banner in the hallway read “welcome new team members” while various pictures depicting nature scenes on the walls displayed words like “loyalty” and encouraged “hard work.”

About 350 Resorts World employees were hired Wednesday alone.

“We’ve gotten applicants with great energy, passion and enthusiasm,” Calderon said.

Calderon said those looking for a job can still apply for various positions, either with Genting Group, the resort’s parent company, or one of its on-site business partners.

Resorts World, which sits on about 88 acres on the north end of the Strip, is scheduled to open June 24.

The $4.3 billion complex will feature a 117,000-square-foot casino floor, 3,500 hotel rooms, a pool area and an array of entertainment, shopping and food and drink offerings.

It will be the first built-from-the-ground-up Strip resort to open in over a decade.

The headline in this story has been updated to reflect that Resorts World received 132,000 applications. Some applied for multiple positions.
