Cherokee Nation and its businesses employ thousands of people. CNB owns companies in the gaming, hospitality, information technology, personnel services, distribution, manufacturing, telecommunications, environmental services, and security and defense industries. Its economic footprint spans northeast Oklahoma and often attracts the best talent because of its pay, health plans and retirement packages. Many of its workers commute from rural communities.
“I’ve been with Cherokee Nation Entertainment for a little more than three years,” said Byron Long, employee from Ottawa County. “I had the opportunity to take the next step in my career and also work for and represent my tribe. Employees, like myself, commute from all over the state to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa because they love working here. This company is filled with so much experience to learn from. If you want to put in the time and effort, it is limitless to where you can go within this company.”
