Silverton Job Fair Brings Out Hundreds of Applicants

Silverton Job Fair Brings Out Hundreds of Applicants

A job fair at the Silverton drew more than 750 applicants for just a few dozen jobs.

The hotel and casino located off Blue Diamond Road recently talked to 8 News NOW about its struggles in finding qualified people to fill its positions, even as the Nevada economy struggles and unemployment stagnates at high levels.

As a smaller property, the Silverton does not have training programs in place to develop basic competencies in its positions, so officials look for workers with necessary skills already in place.

The two-day job fair held by the Silverton resulted in 85 of the applicants continuing on to a security and background check process. From that process, officials hope to fill 37 jobs.

More Homeowners Falling Delinquent on Mortgages

LAS VEGAS -- The number of Southern Nevada homeowners delinquent on their mortgage payments has climbed steadily for the past several months. In some cases, it's people just willing to walk away from their homes, and in other cases, homeowners are holding out hope that they will get a loan modification.

In any given neighborhood, chances are good that a homeowner is the process of walking away from their mortgage. In the past, five months was typically the longest a homeowner could stay in their home until the bank would come knocking. But that is no longer the case.
