MGM Resorts offers a lot of unique benefits to people who are employed with us and start working with us, because we know this can be a challenge. People have been off for a long period of time. They need some help figuring out how to take care of their children. This is open 24/7, so it works with all shifts. It doesn't have to be full time or five days a week.
