I know many people who do just that. For instance, salaried chefs at the resort where I work are lucky if they only work 80-hour weeks. I have cook co-workers who work two jobs at two different resorts and work less hours, and make considerably more.

Salaried positions at Las Vegas resorts offer a little more money than hourly. But the pay per hour plummets. If the goal is to "get in, make a lot of money in a big hurry and then get out," two hourly jobs isn't a bad strategy.

This one is easy. If the MGM is Full or Part time disclose this to the Wynn when MGM comes calling. You really don't even have to do that. In my industry on-call means no strings attached. If I'm available then I go in. If I'm not, I'm not. You could reasonably do both jobs. The only pickle is if you have to do initial training during the same time frame.

Do you have a number of guaranteed hours in your on-call status?

Is the Wynn calling you in to work? If it's on-call, as others have posted, doing both isn't out of the question.

Did the MGM job come through?

Two thoughts. One is the the bird in hand issue. If you can get money and benefits out of Wynn, while MGM is stringing you along, it would be stupid not to. And while no one may be personally offended if you take and then leave a job at Wynn, the fact that you did so will be in their HR system forever, and if you ever apply there again, it'll come up (which would likely NOT help you.)

Thank you all for your help. I have in fact made up my mind to go with the MGM.
They have yet to call, so clearly I made the smart move by accepting the Wynn a {even if it's only for a short period}.
I'm hoping that before my start date the MGM calls.
Hate to just up and quit the Wynn right after I start because they seem so nice there in the HR dept.
Every last one of them. Nice---friendly and helpful.
If the MGM does call before hand, I have no clue what to tell the Wynn.

That's exactly what I wanna hear!
Hope that's the case. I really don't want to pizz anybody off or ruin my chance of future employment.
Because YOU NEVER KNOW....

Cosmo = Best pay and good benefits. Management does not play well with others and all the departments are in it for themselves. But they seem to leave the rank and file alone so its a good workplace if your a worker bee.

Wynn = Best benefits and pay scale close to the Cosmo. Management uses the good old boy system and a good portion of management think their sh@t don't stink because they work for Steve their wonderful God. Management likes to mess with the rank and file under the guise of better service.

Venetian = Good pay and benefits. Another good old boy house and if you don't fit it with the click, your not sh@t and not moving up so its better to move along.

Caesars ENT = Average pay and benefits. Management sweats the small stuff and the rank and file needs to keep its heads down to avoid the bullets and the abuse.

MGM = Average pay and benefits. Management is clueless but lets the rank and file exist. If you are a good worker and want to move, you will move up. If your a sloth of a person then the paychecks will still continue to come it.
