Allegiant Stadium looking to hire 4.5K part-time workers

Updated June 11, 2020 - 9:03 am

Having a new $2 billion, 65,000-seat stadium won’t mean anything without employees to make sure game days run smoothly.

A virtual recruitment to fill up to 4,500 part-time positions for Las Vegas Raiders game days will kick off Saturday.

The positions include the fields of hospitality, food service, security, ticketing, customer service and custodial. Six employers are hiring, including the Raiders, Silver &Black Hospitality and ASM Global.

As the community continues to reopen from coronavirus-related shutdowns, the Raiders hope the recruitment will serve as a step on the road to recovery by introducing thousands of part-time jobs into the local economy.

“With the Raiders’ first Las Vegas game day quickly approaching, we are excited to recruit a winning team to help make every event at Allegiant Stadium unforgettable,” Raiders President Marc Badain said. “We also look forward to helping support local recovery efforts by providing new employment opportunities with the Raiders organization and all of our partners at Allegiant Stadium.”

Job seekers can visit the browser- and smartphone-compatible Allegiant Stadium careers website to apply. The hiring process is expected to take two weeks, according to the website.

All individuals will receive a confirmation email when applications are submitted successfully. Some jobs require both written and video-recorded answers, according to the website.

A recruiter will contact qualified applicants to set follow-up interviews or discuss the next steps. All interviews will be conducted over the phone or via videoconferencing to limit personal contact.

Applicants should be available to work all Raiders home games and other sporting and entertainment events, including UNLV football games, concerts and civic and cultural gatherings at Allegiant Stadium.

Allegiant Stadium is slated for substantial completion July 31, with the first major event, a sold-out Garth Brooks concert, scheduled for Aug. 22. The Raiders are scheduled to kick off at the stadium with their Aug. 27, preseason game, with UNLV football starting its 2020 season Aug. 29.
