Osage Casinos hosting hiring events for new Bartlesville and Pawhuska casinos

With opening dates coming for the new Osage Casino & Hotels at Bartlesville and Pawhuska, career fair events are being planned to recruit gaming and hospitality employees to staff both properties.

The first career fair was held in Pawhuska on Aug. 30 at the Osage Nation Civic Center.

Throughout September, Osage Casinos will host weekly on-the-spot hiring events at both currently open Pawhuska and Bartlesville casinos. 

Weekly on-the-spot hiring events will be held as follows:

  • Pawhuska: Tuesdays (1 to 4 p.m.) and Thursdays (6 to 9 p.m.)
  • Bartlesville: Wednesdays (1 to 4 p.m.) and Fridays (6 to 9 p.m.)

Kyle Revard, Chief Human Resources Officer for Osage Casinos, told the Gaming Enterprise Board on Aug. 23 that his office has been working for months on staff and training plans for the two new properties.

The new Pawhuska casino and hotel is scheduled to open Oct. 5 with a preview event for Osage tribal members on Oct. 4.

A separate career fair event is being planned for Bartlesville in late September to fill gaming and hospitality positions at that respective property with details to follow, Revard said. An opening date for the respective Bartlesville casino and hotel has yet to be announced.

Revard said “we’re targeting roughly around 120 new hires for Pawhuska” and his office has received 250-plus applications for review. In the meantime, Revard said his office has hosted four-hour weekly hiring events in August at Pawhuska and Bartlesville besides the career fair events.

In addition to meeting specific job qualifications, all Osage Casino applicants will be subject to drug testing and must pass a background check process to obtain a gaming license from the Osage Nation Gaming Commission.
