In Columbus and throughout the state of Ohio, the opening of casinos is leading to a number of different reactions. Many people are happy to see the facilities opening up because they provide a clear way to add more jobs to the region. However, getting those positions may be harder than you think. In fact, if you smoke, you are already out of the running in some cases.
According to some reports, those who use nicotine packages, smoke or chew tobacco are out of the running for the more than 3200 casino jobs coming to Columbus and Toledo. The company behind the casinos, Penn National, will begin hiring for these positions this year. More so, it is not just about asking if you smoke. The company will be testing those who apply for it and disqualifying those that do. Workers will be subject to random testing during their employment, too.
