MGM Grand, the largest hotelier/casino in Nevada normally does not like to make a big deal about things like this, but they were named Best Place to Work in Southern Nevada in 2005 and 2006. And now they are reaching out to our U.S. Veterans community to add diversity and quality to their growing success.
Every year, the Southern Nevada Human Resources Association names one company in Las Vegas the Best Place to Work. MGM Grand won the coveted “Best Place to Work Award” in 2005 AND 2006. They said it was because of our outstanding employee programs, and the way MGM Grand management and employess treat each other. They also mentioned our commitment to community, quality, and continuous growth. And there was something in there about all the training and development opportunities on offer.
Now MGM Grand wouldn’t want to brag but let them say this one little thing. “When you work with MGM Grand, you enjoy the prestige of working with a brand that’s synonymous with quality. MGM Grand is host to A-list concerts, events, conventions, shows and restaurants. It’s home to The Mansion, which welcomes the world’s highest-rollers. And it’s the only place in America with 49 AAA Diamonds under one roof, including seven AAA Four Diamond and one Five diamond-rated restaurants!”
MGM Grand has welcomed the biggest names in entertainment and hospitality, including Madonna, David Copperfield, the Rolling Stones, U2, Coldplay, and Wolfgang Puck. MGM Grand is associated with major celebrities and chefs like Joel Robuchon – and who knows, one day it could be associated with you, too.
