Spokane Tribe Casino holds job fair


November 2, 2017

The Spokane Tribe Casino held a job fair at their office last week. About 300 jobs were available for applicants.

On Oct. 26, the Spokane Tribe Casino held a job fair at their office space located at 13918 West State Route 2 Highway in Airway Heights.

There was a constant flow of applicants throughout the entire day with an unofficial head count around 400 people. The fair featured a variety of job openings including, marketing, food and beverages, gaming operations and customer service positions.

"There was no headcount, but people were coming in and out all day," Jamie Sijohn, the public relations director for the Spokane Tribe said. "Overall, it was just was a good interaction with future employees."

When all is said and done, the casino is estimated to provide over 5,000 jobs to the West Plains area, which includes the construction positions. Even though there were no interviews on site, people were set to be hired within a couple weeks. It depends on the job as to when employees are expected to start.

People who are interested in a job at the future casino, but were not able to attend the job fair can still apply for jobs online at

"I really am encouraging people to stay up to date on our website," Sijohn said.

The construction on the future casino is about 50 percent complete at this time with it beginning back in November 2016. The first phase of the attraction is expected to open late 2017 with a grand opening celebration. With phase one of construction, the casino will feature about 450 gaming machines, 12 table games and food and beverage amenities.
