We believe that going through the hiring process at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, Saganing Eagles Landing Casino or The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe should be as painless as possible. We want you to know where you stand every step of the way. Listed below are the steps of the process that you’ll go through on your way to becoming part of our family!
Step One: Finding The Right Job For You
Find a job to apply for by browsing through all of our available jobs. Match your qualifications with the minimum qualifications of one or more of our open positions. You must apply to each job you are interested in. Aim for a job that sounds appropriate for your experience and background.
Step Two: Apply!
Fill out the online application as completely as possible. It’s always a good idea to attach a cover letter, resumé and any certifications/degrees you may hold, to your application. This can easily be done from your home computer if the information is saved there. If applying from a public computer, you may need to install a flash drive that contains your information. After completing your online application, expect to wait approximately one week from the closing date of the posting to hear back from us. If you apply for a position that says “Open Until Filled,” the wait will be longer.
Step Three: Screening Process
Once the position closes, the screening process begins. Our recruiters will compare your background and qualifications with the minimum requirements on the job description. If you don’t completely meet the qualifications, you will receive an email from us, letting you know this. Also, as we do observe a Native Preference Hiring Policy, if you are a Saginaw Chippewa tribal member, descendant of this tribe or a member of a federally recognize tribe, you may be asked to provide documentation to verify your membership status. If the position you are applying for requires specific certification or education, you may be asked to provide that documentation.
Step Four: Interview
Once our recruiting staff has determined that you meet our minimum qualifications, you’ll be contacted by phone for an interview. Typically this will happen within one week after the job posting has closed. Your interview will typically last 20-40 minutes. Depending on the position you are interviewing for, you may be asked to take a math or typing test. It’s a good idea to bring your paper resumé and any other credentials you have to your interview.
Step Five: Job Offer
If you’ve been selected for the position, two to three days after your interview someone from Human Resources will contact you by phone to offer you the job. If you’re not selected, you will receive an email to let you know this. When you accept a position, we will then ask you to come in to the Human Resources office to fill out some paperwork. Then we’ll send you for a drug test (no charge).
Step Six: Gaming License
Some of our positions will require a Gaming License and some only require a background check. A gaming license is a very thorough background check that considers your character, finances and criminal history, and is required of most gaming positions. To apply for a gaming license you will fill out an extensive application, pay a one-time fee of $100 (renewal is $50 annually), sit for a brief interview with a background investigator and submit to fingerprinting. When making this trip to the Gaming Commission you will need: two forms of valid ID (driver’s license & social security card), gaming license application, $100 cash or money order and an authorization form from Human Resources.
Step Seven: Onboarding
Once we have received notice from the Gaming Commission that your temporary gaming license is in you will be contacted by phone or email to schedule a time to come in to fill out your new hire paperwork OR fill it out via email. For onboarding, you will need your driver’s license, social security card, bank account number and bank routing number (for direct deposit).
