Casino gets ready to add hundreds of more jobs,  Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 11:01:37 AM

Erie County's jobs picture is expected to brighten in the next couple of months.

Bet on it.

Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Summit Township is getting ready to put about 500 more people on its payroll as it prepares to add 48 table games to a mix of 2,000 slot machines, thoroughbred horse racing, off-track betting, restaurants and live entertainment.

To put those numbers in perspective, consider that the highly publicized juice-processing plant for the city of Erie's east side promised up to 400 jobs about five years ago. And, as you know, that plant was never built, and that promise was never kept. the source

Erie casino cuts workers' hours in slowdown,  Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 1:28:34 PM

Workers at Presque Isle Downs & Casino are having their hours cut because casino business has slowed during the winter season.

About 200 of the casino's 800 employees are having their hours cut. Full-time employees are now working just four days a week, and part-timers have had about eight hours cut from their 25-hour work week.

Chief Executive Richard Knight says the cuts will continue until business at the casino picks up. the source

Erie slots operator hopes gambling begins soon

Centre Daily,  Tuesday, February 13, 2007 at 7:44:30 AM

A court decision in favor of a company building a thoroughbred race track and casino near Erie has raised the firm's hopes that slot-machine gambling may begin there by the end of February.

MTR Gaming Group Inc.'s request to open the Presque Isle Downs casino is still on hold, however, until the Gaming Control Board has sufficient membership to conduct votes.

"Our belief is everything is done from the Presque Isle end," casino spokesman John Brabender said Monday. "We could probably open tomorrow if somebody gave us the green light." the source
