Hard Rock A.C. announces over $10M in employee bonuses

Team members surprised with $50,000 in cash prizes and two new cars

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City on Thursday held a team member town hall meeting at which Chairman of Hard Rock International Jim Allen and President of Hard Rock Atlantic City Joe Lupo announced that over 2,400 eligible union and non-union team members will receive a bonus for the third consecutive year. The announcement followed a record-breaking year, with the largest increase in coin-in, table games drop and gross gaming revenue over 2019. Additionally, eight randomly selected team members won cash prizes, two won all-inclusive stays at a Hard Rock resort destination and two grand prize winners each received a new car.

Hard Rock Atlantic City Partners Joe Jingoli Jr. and Michael Jingoli stood alongside Allen addressing the property’s team members and union representatives from UNITE HERE Local 54, Operating Engineers Local 68, Northeast Carpenters and Painters District Council 711 during two town hall events.

“We look at things differently here at Hard Rock, and that’s been the root of our success. Our mottos of ‘Love All, Serve All,’ ‘Take Time to Be Kind,’ ‘Save the Planet’ and ‘All is One’ have been around for decades, and we continue to live by them today,” Allen said. “We want to focus on building companionship at work and creating a sense of family among our Hard Rock team members. This is what separates us and keeps us as industry leaders.”

Additional town hall highlights included a snapshot of Hard Rock Atlantic City’s community efforts, market positioning and an overall brand update highlighting the domestic and global hotel, casino and restaurant pipeline.

“I couldn’t be prouder that Hard Rock Atlantic City was the top performer in the market, the top employer in New Jersey, but, most importantly, that we are creating a culture based off the core values and motto ‘Love All, Serve All,'” Lupo said.
