SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Wednesday marks 100 days until the new MGM Springfield casino opens it's doors.

Last week, hundreds of job offers were made following a two-day mass hiring event but there are still thousands of open positions that need to be filled.

Just this weekend more signs have been put up at MGM Springfield, and while 200 job offers were made last week there are still over 2,000 positions that need to be filled before the casino opens in just over a hundred days.  

As work continues on the exterior of MGM Springfield, those needed to make it run are being interviewed and hired by the casino.

"To see the joy on some of these faces and tears in their eyes has been really rewarding for our team," said Jason Randall, Director of Human Resources.

There are 353 active employees of MGM Springfield which includes the MassMutual Center.  

There are over 2,600 open positions which have candidates going through the process of offers and background checks. 

As of Monday, there are 140 categories of jobs posted on MGM's career site and Jason Randall said the first thing to do is apply.

"The first step is to get that application in there next step is on our end we will be inviting them via email for the upcoming dates," Randall added. 

The next invitation-only hiring event will take place from June 3 through June 5 and they are looking to fill the roles of hotel and finance, food and beverage, along with environmental services and property management.

Next week, the company will be hosting several community events where anyone who is looking for employment at MGM can bring their resume and practice interview skills.
