May 13, 2010|By Liz F. Kay, The Baltimore Sun

More than 1,500 people came to the Perryville Outlet Center to apply for jobs at the Hollywood Casino Perryville Thursday, according to a spokesman.

The Cecil Co. casino, one of the first gaming facilities scheduled to open in Maryland after slots were approved, is expected to open in late fall. About 350 people are expected to be hired in positions such as gaming, food and beverage, security and accounting as well as human resources.

Hollywood representatives met with candidates during the job fair to offer more information about available positions. Participants applied online at computers onsite. Eligible candidates will be called in for interviews in June and July.
