Job Fair, Out with the Old, Mini Pies, More

Job Fair September 11
We’re actively hiring for all four of our properties, the Carson Valley Inn in Minden, Sharkey’s Casino in Gardnerville, and Bodines Casino and SlotWorld Casino in Carson City. We have both part-time and full-time positions available and we’d like to talk with you at our Job Fair on Tuesday, September 11 from 3 to 7 PM in the CVI Convention Center.  Not trained in the area in which you have an interest? No problem. If you have enthusiasm and an outgoing personality, we’ll train you for the job!

Part -Time: Perhaps you’re back in school and want a part-time job that fits your schedule? Perhaps your kids are back in school and you’d like to work a few hours a day?  Perhaps you are retired and miss the social interaction that working with the public provides?  Perhaps you have a full time job and would like part time work to subsidize your income or save for a special project or purchase?

Full-Time:  This is your opportunity to investigate our growing company for positions in all hospitality industry areas including food and beverage, hotel, casino, accounting, administrative, and more. Many of our current supervisors and managers started in entry-level positions – that’s what happens in a growing company and we would like to tell you more!

Department representatives will be at the Job Fair doing interviews and will be extending job offers to successful applicants.  Want to shortcut the process?  Stop at the Carson Valley Inn HR Department any time between now and September 11 or click on this link and download a fillable PDF job application. You can save it, complete the info, print it, and bring it with you to the Job Fair (or before if you wish).

Will 38 Special be "Caught Up in You"
on Friday, September 21?

“Caught Up In You” is one of 38 Special’s classic songs, first released on the band’s Special Forces album in 1982. Written by Don Barnes, Jeff Carlisi and Jim Peterik, this is just one of the group’s many hits you’ll hear in TJ’s Corral on Friday, September 21 when 38 Special closes out our 2018 concert season. You can buy tickets on our website or in person at the Hotel Front Desk.

Old Carpet Being Torn Out
in Valley Ballroom This Week
A New Look for Your
Next Event at the CVI
Seems like there’s always something being remodeled or refreshed here at the Carson Valley Inn. This week, it’s the Banquet Department’s turn as new carpet is being installed in both the Valley Ballroom and West Wing of our convention center. We’ve also done quite a bit of updating in most of our hotel rooms in the last few months and we’ll be putting the finishing touches on many of the rooms (and posting pictures) as soon as business slows down this fall. We have a few other surprises coming this winter and you’ll read about it here in our weekly blog.

Blood Drive Thursday
Following up on the information we had in last week’s blog, this is a reminder that the United Blood Services Blood Drive is in our west parking lot under the big electronic sign this Thursday from noon to 6 PM.  You can still schedule ahead at this link or just show up and the Bloodmobile folks will get you processed as soon as they can!
