Continuing its legacy of paying bonuses to team members, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City has elated thousands of union and nonunion team members with news they will be receiving a share of more than $10 million in bonuses. The bonuses were announced this week at “Town Hall” gatherings, where several team members also won a share of $100,000 in cash and prizes.
Hard Rock International’s commitment to team members includes the 2022 announcement of a $100 million investment to substantially raise the salaries of its U.S. workforce, with the wage increase greatly impacting 95 job classifications, including jobs in Atlantic City.
In announcing the bonuses and awarding the prizes, Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen was joined by Hard Rock Atlantic City partners Jack Morris, Joe Jingoli Jr. and Michael Jingoli, as well as George Goldhoff, newly-appointed president of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City. Together, they unveiled a combination of capital improvements geared to create an even greater guest experience at Hard Rock.
The capital improvements are part of a Fifth Anniversary Celebration that will also bring the largest entertainment lineup in the five-year history of Hard Rock through an investment of over $30 million in entertainment to attract world-class talent for shows at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena, the leading entertainment venue in the market.
“The commitment of Hard Rock Atlantic City team members to guest satisfaction is unrivaled in this market, and it’s the biggest reason for our success story here in Atlantic City,” Allen said. “We want to recognize and thank our team members for their dedication and enthusiasm, and we want to encourage them to keep up the great work.”
Additional Town Hall highlights included a focus on Hard Rock’s commitment to Atlantic City and its community efforts here, as well as a Hard Rock brand update highlighting the domestic and global hotel, casino and restaurant portfolio.
“Our incredible talent base of team members, along with their superior service, has been remarkable to witness since arriving in Atlantic City,” Goldhoff said. “I am excited to begin this next chapter with a team who has already achieved such great success. Our team members truly embody the motto, ‘Love All – Serve All,’ and support our efforts to make a difference in our local community.”
