Seminole Tribe hires 3,500 people for Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City

The Seminole Tribe is making major progress as the opening of its Hard Rock gaming and entertainment facility in New Jersey approaches.

Leonard Coleman, a craps dealer, was the 3000th hire at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, The Associated Press reported. The facility will eventually employ 3,500 people when it opens on June 28.

Signage is also going up all around the 17-acre property on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Installation of the "Hard Rock Hotel and Casino" letters on the parking garage was completed on Monday, David Danzis of The Press of Atlantic City reported on Twitter.

The facility is located at the former Trump Taj Mahal, which was once owned by the current U.S. president. The tribe and its partners purchased the property for $50 million, far less than the $1.2 billion that Donald Trump said he put into the namesake casino.

Hard Rock invested another $500 million in revamping the facility, which coincidentally debuts on the same as Ocean Resort Casino, another revamped casino in Atlantic City.
