With an influx of new dealers, the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel may be able to keep more of its 100 table games open longer and for extended hours.

That is the motivation behind a table games dealer career fair it has set for Nov. 5 at the Niagara Falls casino. The career fair begins at 10 a.m. and recruiters hope to land as many as 100 new dealer candidates.

The fair is open to rookie and experienced dealers.

Seneca officials said their effort to hire more dealers may be a prelude to extending the operational hours for some of the table games. The dealer-only career fair comes as the casino is seeing increased demand for more table activity.

Free Blackjack training classes may be offered to help new dealers earn their state-issued license.

The casino's table games include Blackjack, roulette, mini baccarat and a variety of poker options.

All of the new positions are part time. Flexible scheduling is part of the hiring process with an emphasis on weekend and holiday hours.
