MGM Springfield to begin hiring process

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Jobs, jobs, and more jobs. That’s what MGM promised when it came to Springfield and soon they will be hiring. Two thousand and two hundred full time workers and another 800 part-time employees.

MGM Springfield hosted a vendor outreach session Wednesday, but 22News spoke to its General Manager about the hiring process. He says they’re going to start posting jobs for middle management in the next month or two.

Then next spring, the bulk of the front line jobs will be available. Regionally, when MGM hires someone, another job may open up.

“We need to be preparing for, as a region, is those backfill opportunities because there may be people who are currently employed at a bank, hotel, restaurant or totally in a different industry who may choose to come and work for us,” said MGM Springfield’s General Manager Alex Dixon.
