C.O.D. Casino job fair today
July 10, 2014
The C.O.D. Casino is hosting a job fair 1-6 p.m. today at the CVIC Hall in Minden.
The casino, which will occupy the former C.O.D. Garage, will be looking for bartenders, casino attendants, cocktail servers, security, poker dealers, keno runners, porters and managers.
The casino is expected to open at the end of summer at 1595 Esmeralda Ave.
A nonrestricted gaming license was approved for owner Scott Tate in April. It has been six years since a plan to convert the garage into a casino was first unveiled.
Built in 1911, and vacant since 2003, the C.O.D. Garage was one of the oldest operating commercial garages in the United States.
The C.O.D. Garage was named after Clarence O. Dangberg. Fred “Brick” Hellwinkel started out at the garage in 1912 as a mechanic and became a full partner in 1919.
The project also includes a parking lot in excess of 75 spaces built in an empty lot across from the casino.
Tate said the C.O.D. Casino reflects his company’s commitment to its employees and the community.
