guest services ambassador (roam floor and pay jackpots, etc.)

M Resorts:
Player's Club Representative

Thanks for any input.

Are you serious? You guys have a very good starting wage in your casinos. Are any benies included? If so, is there a probationary period?

Many such jobs are culinary. Room attendants start at 12 and hour with a 40 hour guarantee and paid medical. That sets the floor for most other jobs.

Tipped positions pay better generally.

10-12 starting is about right on the strip for those jobs....little less downtown.....probation is usually 90 days [sometimes 6 mos for insurance] completion of probation usually brings a pay raise.....then annual after that....one meal usually included.

I'm not sure about the dealers, but I'm guessing right around that mark or a bit higher to start. It's tough to land a dealers job in one of the Strip props right off the bat..most folks fresh out of dealers school start at the downtown hotels and/or local places.

A lot of casino positions are part time only as well, and part time workers aren't eligible for any benefits.

A lot of casino/hotel jobs involve the culinary/bartenders union. Your pay won't be the highest, but you'll receive excellent medical coverage and vac-sick-personal time....but you'd have to pay union dues every other month...about $35.00 or therabouts...
so you'd guess $25/hr would be an absolute high for dealers on strip casinos? wow....
i'd never thought theyd be so badly paid. i mean, these people handle thousands of dollars, some $100k's an hour, and yet all they can aspire to is $25/hr? good god! benefits are ok, sure, but if an avg dealer earns $15/hr, that's less than $2K a month, before taxes!, and they probably handle that kind of money in 10 minutes in some cases....un-be-lie-va-ble. poor dealers, i don't envy them one fraction of a second....life is so frickin unfair..... i'm amazed these people aren't serial killers, they are beyond amazing. so, as a lesson: always tip your dealer well (even tho it goes into a mass pot)
