Hollywood Casino York is currently under development and aiming for an August opening. As construction continues in Pennsylvania, Penn National Gaming is looking to fill out the staff.

On Friday, Penn National announced it has opened a career center to begin accepting applications for jobs at the casino in the York Galleria Mall in Springettsbury Township, York County. The career center is on the lower level of the mall, adjacent to the location of the casino.

“We are thrilled to begin accepting applications from residents of York County and neighboring communities,” Erin Chamberlin, senior vice president of regional operations for Penn National, said in a news release. “We look forward to interviewing candidates for the vast array of jobs that will be made available in advance of our expected grand opening in August.”

The career center is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with expanded hours to come in the future. Positions available include casino operations, food and beverage, security and surveillance, human resources, marketing and more, pending regulatory approval.

Potential future hires can learn more, apply in person at the career center or online here and typing “York” in the career listing search box.

“Whether you prefer being at the center of it all or working behind the scenes, there’s a role for everyone at Hollywood Casino York,” Chamberlin said in the release. “As a continuously growing company with more than 40 properties nationwide, team members with a commitment to customer service can benefit from opportunities for career growth at any of our facilities throughout the country.”

Developing New Pennsylvania Casino

The construction of Hollywood Casino York equates to an overall investment of almost $120 million, which includes license fees for slot machines and table games.

The nearly 80,000 square foot facility will feature almost 500 slot machines and 24 table games with the room to accommodate up to 750 slot machines and 40 table games.

Hollywood Casino York will also include a Barstool-branded sportsbook and race book to accommodate sports betting, plus a casual restaurant and bar and a grab-and-go eatery.
