Aquasino continues hiring blitz; 60 jobs available

By Trey Paul - bio | email

LITTLE RIVER,SC (WMBF) – If you're looking for work, managers of the Aquasino Casino boat docked in Little River say they still need to hire at least 60 employees.

"Move quickly. Understand the nature of these jobs. We'll get references done quickly. You need to pass a drug test and you need to be able to sail on the water," said owner Robert Weisberg.

Weisberg says he's looking for captains, deck hands, IT employees, and waitresses to name a few.

"When you're on the boat, it's going to feel like you're on a cruise ship. [There's] amazing interiors with elevators and beautiful corporate dining rooms. [There's] exceptional gaming. It's like you're in Vegas," said Weisberg.

The vessel is 220 feet long and holds 600 people. Weisberg says it's the nicest and biggest of its kind in North America.

"The jobs are good for the local economy. That's the only good thing. The job it's giving to some of the local people," said Fibbers restaurant owner Rich Dobkin.

Dobkin worries that since the local economy now has to support two boats, business will fade away.

"We think as many businesses as possible that can bring people here to the waterfront at Little River is good for all of us," said Weisberg.

Dobkin also worries about parking problems, which he says have been an issue in the past.

"It gets endless here. You can't park anywhere, and if this other boat comes in, it's going to keep getting worse," he said.

"We're thinking of developing more parking by knocking down the big building here and maybe putting a parking facility in," Weisberg said.

Aquasino may be a big boat with big opportunities, depending on which way you look at it.
