Hundreds turn out for casino job fair

Posted:

Hundreds of people turned out for a job fair in Sioux Falls held by officials with the Grand Falls Casino Resort being built in northwest Iowa. 

The event Sunday was the first of 6 job fairs being held this week in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota. The resort near Larchwood will employ more than 700 people when it opens later this spring. The company says it expects to fill more than 500 of those jobs through the job fairs.  The line of applicants Sunday was so long officials decided to open the doors 20 minutes early. Casino General Manager Sharon Haselhoff says the interest is "a good sign."
