Mohegan Sun announced the launch of a new Jobs and Business series for Revere and other regional communities that will provide local residents and businesses with detailed information on potential career and vendor opportunities in the resort gaming industry.
During the Jobs Forum, which takes place in the Topsider Room at Suffolk Downs on February 3rd, attendees will hear from current Mohegan Sun HR executives and employees who will discuss careers with the company. On February 4th, area companies will have the opportunity to learn more about potential vendor opportunities associated with Mohegan Sun Massachusetts during two Business Forums that take place at the Comfort Inn in Revere.
“Mohegan Sun Massachusetts will create thousands of new jobs and business opportunities for residents in Revere and throughout the region,” said Mitchell Etess, chief executive officer of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. “We have a long track record of hiring and buying locally, and these events will provide residents with additional insight into the industry and information on career and business opportunities at Mohegan Sun Massachusetts.”
Mohegan Sun Massachusetts will generate 4,000 permanent jobs and 2,500 construction jobs. It will also preserve 800 jobs at Suffolk Downs by enabling the continuation of live Thoroughbred racing. Mohegan Sun’s host community agreement with Revere calls for 20 permanent of the permanent jobs to go to Revere residents and 75 percent to those residing within 15 miles of Revere. Mohegan Sun has also committed to purchasing $10 million annually from businesses in Revere and $50 million annually from regional businesses. In addition, Mohegan Sun’s industry-leading players’ club points program will enable customers to utilize their points at local businesses and destinations outside the resort.
“We believe we have created the right project by the right team at the right location, which will generate the maximum economic growth and revenue – not only for Revere, but for the entire Commonwealth,” added Etess. “Our benefits rank at the very top of the industry and we create careers and business opportunities that support families. We’re a local company that Massachusetts can count on and be proud to do business with.”
