Circa hiring more than 100 for Stadium Swim venue

The soon-to-open Circa hotel-casino is inviting people to take the plunge and apply to work at its pool amphitheater.

Circa will host reservation-only “auditions” Sept. 14 and 15 for more than 100 jobs at its Stadium Swim venue, including cocktail servers, bartenders, food runners, lifeguards and box-office cashiers, the resort announced Thursday. The property is set to open Oct. 28.

Circa’s hiring stands out among a series of layoffs and extended furloughs at other resorts. On Monday, 18,000 MGM Resorts International employees on furlough were to be laid off, though it wasn’t clear how many of them worked in Nevada. Casino Royale on the Strip laid off 98 employees last month, and three nongaming hotels also warned that layoffs and furlough extensions were in the picture.

Interested people must send in a resume to www.circalasvegas.com/stadium-swim-tryouts/ and receive reservation confirmation to attend the position tryouts. The job tryouts will run from 9 a.m. through 7 p.m. on both days inside an indoor tent at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

All applicants must be 21 or older and wear face coverings and swimwear to the audition, and “social distancing will be implemented for all auditions,” the release said.
