The progressive company has many additional healthy initiatives, such as diabetes prevention and smoking cessation programs, as well as a newly opened health office with services offered free-of-charge and no need for co-payments or insurance.
Nearly all of the 500 new positions for the all-new Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo are now filled. However, a few dozen remaining positions will be available at the job fair.
Construction at the facility is ongoing, and an opening is slated for later this summer.

A parking garage, surface lot parking and valet service will also be available.
