Here is what you can expect from the huge undertaking – 4,280 food and beverage employees including 165 master cooks, 255 bartenders and 10 shabu shabu cooks. There will be more than 1,300 table games dealers, floor supervisors, slot operators and guest service representatives working in ARAI’s casino. There will be more than 160 massage therapists, aestheticians and manicurists at ARIA and Vdara’s spas.

“We’re proud to celebrate this significant milestone as we begin to extend job offers to 12,000 deserving individuals. Rich in diversity, intelligence and passion, this team will form the foundation of the extraordinary experience that CityCenter will deliver,” said Bobby Baldwin, president and CEO, CityCenter. “Since breaking ground in 2006, CityCenter has employed more than 9,000 construction workers who have helped bring this vision to reality. When we open this December, demand created by CityCenter will result in thousands of additional jobs at outside companies. This is more than a collection of resorts; we see it as a beacon of hope for a future of renewed economic vitality in Las Vegas.”
