(Las Vegas, NV) MGM likes what it sees from veterans and wants them to be part of the team.

One to two years before leaving the service, active military members go through a training process to get them ready for a new life in the workforce.

MGM Resorts has openings in everything from marketing to hotel operations. Hiring managers are reaching out to former military members to increase the already 50 thousand member workforce.

“We have everything across the board and I think people don’t know how much we have to offer. People see casinos and they think restaurants and they don’t think beyond that. We want to push the envelope and show them everything we have to offer,” says MGM’s Marvela Smith

Hiring managers are looking to former members of the military to bring their leadership and teamwork skills and will eventually train them in the respective job

“MGM Resorts is not hiring for certain competencies that are required to do a certain job. They are hiring for the competencies that we (former military) bring. The leadership, the teamwork, etc. We bring that into the company and they can train for the other competencies and job skills,” says Wilson Edgell, MGM Resorts.

Edgell started with a program called Boots to Business, which is designed to help veterans transition from military service into management positions at MGM Resorts properties.
