Rio hosts food and beverage staff hiring fair November 29 and December 6

November 29, 2023

Over 100 full and part-time roles are available in the property's new Canteen Food Hall as well as the resort's other food and beverage concepts.

Rio Hotel & Casino, just off the Las Vegas Strip, is hosting a hiring fair for food and beverage positions today (November 29) and December 6. Over 100 full-time and part-time staff members will be needed for the resort’s new food hall, which will open in January 2024.

Today’s fair will take place at Rio’s Hash House A Go Go from 10:00am to 2:00pm for Canteen Food Hall roles, while December 6’s fair will also take place at the Hash House but seeks to fill roles within the resort. Full-time positions have the potential to offer medical insurance, dental, vision, wellness benefits and a 401k savings plan.

Rio is looking to conduct in-person interviews, with possible on-the-spot hiring for staff members such as: chefs, cooks, bartenders, bartender apprentices, attendants, stewards, bussers and baristas. As such, interested applicants are encouraged to bring resumes and ‘dress for success,’ as they would for an interview.

The hotel and casino announced its plans for the Canteen Food Hall earlier this month, as a replacement for its Carnival World Buffet. According to architects John Ruiz and George Bergman, who recently spoke to Gaming America about how the casinos of the future will be designed, buffets are often being phased out at existing properties while new properties seem to be choosing food hall concepts instead.

Rio has also made some other recent changes in an attempt to update the property, as in early October the casino announced its new Rio Rewards program, and later that month the property announced the closing of its entertainment venue.

Dreamscape acquired Rio at the end of 2019 from Caesars Entertainment and has plans to renovate the casino floor, meeting space, pool deck and suites.
