The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa will hold a job fair on Oct. 24 to fill more than 200 positions.

The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Hard Rock Cafe at the complex at Interstate 4 and Orient Road.

Seminole Hard Rock is seeking security officers, floor attendants, cage cashiers, marketing representatives, slot technicians, and food and beverage workers.

Applicants must be 18 years old and have at least one year of guest service experience. Those interested may apply in advance at and should bring a resume, driver's license and social security card to the event.

An expansion of the Hard Rock facility was announced in June. It will bring an additional parking garage with 750 spaces, a 30,000-square-foot premium gaming area, 50-table poker room, a new restaurant and other amenities.

That expansion was scaled back significantly from original plans to add a 500-room hotel tower to the existing 244 rooms, a music venue, banquet and meeting facilities, a new restaurant and lobby bar and remodeling of the Hard Rock Cafe. Plans changed when the Legislature failed to approve a new gambling deal with the Seminole Tribe of Florida in the 2016 session.
