Cherokee Nation to hire 500 at expanded casino

The Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma will hire more than 500 people at one of its casinos.

A job fair will be held later this week to fill the posts at the casino in West Siloam Springs, which is undergoing a $125 million expansion. The bigger facility will open in the coming months.

"Cherokee Casinos allow Cherokee citizens and our neighbors in northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas to have good-paying, stable jobs with great benefits minutes from home. We are hoping to fill as many of the new positions as possible during these job fairs, David Stewart, the CEO of Cherokee Nation Enterprises, said in a press release.

The casino currently employs 450 people.
