BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Attention job seekers!

Margaritaville Resort Casino is bringing hundreds of jobs to the ArkLaTex, and online job applications are now available.

The casino reports getting a couple hundred applications on the first day alone.

Once an applicant has logged onto the website, he or she is asked to create an account before answering questions.

If a job you're looking for is not listed as "open," the company says keep checking back.

Hiring for many of the jobs won't begin until April or May, which is about a month before the casino's targeted opening date in June. 

According to developers, Margaritaville is projected to provide more than 1,200 new jobs and more than $12 million in new local tax revenues to support jobs for our first-responders and educators.

Construction on the $197 million casino and hotel resort began last winter. It will be the sixth casino in the Shreveport-Bossier area and the first new facility in more than a decade.
