LAS VEGAS – Wynn Resorts is now accepting applications for 5,300 newly-created job opportunities as it prepares to unveil Encore, the new signature resort in the Wynn collection. The resort is scheduled to open in December 2008 with suite reservations now being accepted for dates starting in early 2009.

These openings span numerous departments including housekeeping, hotel operations, security, food and beverage, retail and casino operations. They also include opportunities with its other Las Vegas resort, Wynn Las Vegas.

Due to high levels of interest and Wynn’s reputation as an employer of choice, Wynn anticipates more than 65,000 applicants – or approximately 12 applicants for every open position.

These openings present an opportunity to join the only Mobile Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond, Michelin Five Red Pavilions award-winning team in Las Vegas. Working at Encore is also a chance to be part of Las Vegas history as Steve Wynn’s properties have always set the standard for luxury.

“This is an especially exciting time for us. As we expand, we are looking for people who share our dedication to excellence and passion for impeccable, personalized service. At Wynn Resorts, we are committed to providing both our guests and employees with extraordinary experiences unlike any others,” said Stephanie Rosol, vice president of human resources with Wynn Resorts.

“We are incredibly proud of our reputation, and we’re seeking people who want only the best for themselves and their families. If you expect to accomplish great things, value what you do, and want an employer who is going to recognize your contributions, this is where you belong,” said Rosol.

Wynn Resorts has also invested in a new Employment Center to help candidates without computer access. Those candidates can call to make an appointment to come to the Employment Center, which is equipped with 32 computer kiosks, is staffed by 100 employees fluent in numerous languages, including Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin and German.

Candidates should apply directly online at
