Almost There: Hiring Spree, New Logo Highlight Busy Week For Ocean Resort Casino

This past week, Ocean Resort Casino (ORC) took two steps closer to their summer opening in Atlantic City.

The property announced a new round of open positions, and they also revealed the Ocean Resort logo. Both moves added to the excitement of what has become an expedient building and brand makeover of the property formerly known as TEN AC and the Revel.

Several director jobs open at Ocean Resort Casino

According to the Press of Atlantic City, the following openings were up for grabs at the job fair:

  • Director of training and development
  • Business analyst
  • Front office manager
  • IT support technician
  • Restaurant chefs
  • Casino controller

This past Wednesday, the jobs were posted on Ocean Resort’s Indeed page. By Sunday, four more positions were added:

  • Systems engineer
  • Director of surveillance
  • Director of culture and development
  • Director of IT infrastructure

Missing from that Sunday list are positions which were, presumably, filled:

  • Business analyst
  • Front office manager
  • Restaurant chefs
  • IT support technician

New logo features building design

Long before the Revel found itself mired in a vitriolic battle between the city, state and its owner, Glenn Straub, the building was as clean and beautiful a building as you’d find on the AC Boardwalk.

Undulating lines and a sea of windows gave the building a futuristic vibe. And it literally had a cherry on top: a globe positioned atop the property’s main tower. At first glance, it looks like a giant golf ball on a tee.

AC Ocean Walk LLC, the consortium who bought the property from Straub, incorporated that unique architecture feature into the logo. At left is a glimpse of the new logo, as posted on the casino’s website at the time of publishing Ocean Resort Casino logo

Based on past visits to the TEN AC website, the Ocean Resort site seems to be using the same design and the same photos of the hotel’s rooms, amenities, and entertainment spaces.

Exactly how much the property’s interior spaces have aged is hard to tell. They certainly didn’t have to endure a lot of occupancy and gambling traffic since Revel closed in 2014.

New owners hope to lead new era of Atlantic City casinos

The Revel’s demise was a spectacular one. It opened in 2012 after nearly $3 billion in spending and two years later.

While the city’s economic decline in 2014 was a major factor in the Revel’s death, there was a good amount of conversation about the property’s unconventional approach to running a casino. The gambling floor had to be accessed from an escalator, the floor plan was confusing, smoking was not allowed, and there was no buffet.

These factors came as a jolt to patrons who were used to easy-to-navigate casino floors rife with cigarette smoke and decent food piled high in affordable buffet-style restaurants.

Ocean Resort Casino hopes to exorcise those ill-fated demons with 100 table games, 2,200 slot machines, a sportsbook, and 138,000 of overall gambling space.

Bruce Deifik, chairman of AC Ocean Walk LLC, said in a Jan. 8 press release that the revamped casino and hotel should give gamblers exactly what they want out of a premium gambling and resort experience.

“Our investment in this property will make certain there is something for everyone at the Ocean,” Deifik said.
