Dayton Racino Plans To Hire This Summer

An official at the racino under construction in Dayton says most of the hiring will happen this summer - but smokers need not apply.

Gary DeWitt, general manager of the Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway, wouldn't say how many people will be hired or how many will be full-time at the new track being built on the site of an old automotive plant.

But he did say they won't hire smokers. All Penn National Gaming establishments require employees to be non-smokers. The harness-racing track, which also will feature 1,000 slot machines, will be smoke-free.
