Virgin Hotels Las Vegas exec explains why it’s time to open the doors
A: My level of excitement is beyond personal and professional excitement. We have 1,300 [of 1,453] returning employees from Hard Rock coming back to work. We’ve hired an additional 300 employees, and then we’ll have added another 400 team members over the next two months as our pool — what I call the backyard of the resort — continues to open. Even though we are opening during a pandemic and a public health crisis, we’re opening as Las Vegas is opening.
