Barclays Center is hiring again, but we still don't know about pay, benefits, and expected weekly hours (where's the compliance monitor?)

The Barclays Center is hiring again (sign up here), with priority to locals. This periodic announcement indicates not that the arena is adding total staff but experiencing regular turnover among security and guest services personnel.

As I wrote on Twitter, it would be nice to know about the pay, benefits, and average weekly hours worked, but the arena won't say. If arena developer Forest City Ratner hired the Independent Compliance Monitor required by the much-touted Community Benefits Agreement, we'd know.

From the arena's jobs website:
The Barclays Center is a newly opened state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena that is now making the neighborhood the pride of Brooklyn. You need to be Brooklyn's Best at Barclays.
Believe in Barclays. Believe in Brooklyn.
Barclays is currently recruiting candidates for positions on the Security & Guest Services teams.

If you are a Brooklyn, Community Board 2,3,6,8 or NYCHA resident, you'll be the first in line for consideration during this recruitment process, though all registered candidates will be considered.
Pre-screening events will be held in downtown Brooklyn from May 20 to June 13. All interested and qualified candidates must attend a pre-screening event to be considered for a position. Registration (below) is required to attend pre-screening events. To be considered for a position, you must meet the requirements for the position and be willing to work flexible hours.
Final interviews will be conducted in downtown Brooklyn on or around June 17.
