It helps to know what the various registerd county work cards are for and what you need for your specific job. The lastest update to the codes changed in 2011 state no convictions of a felony related to Theft, fraud,violence or controlled substances in the last five years. You also have to be free of gross misdemeanors and defrauding crimes for the last three years.

Sarah....SHERIFFS cards are not required for most positions.....I do NOT believe they will issue a SHERIFFS card to a felon....Sheriffs cards are required for dealers and for a lot of 'cash handling' positions but not for MOST back of the house slots....i.e. Room Reservations does not require a Sheriffs card....Front Desk does not require a Sheriffs card. Slot Attendants DO require one....as does Security.

on that note.....but related.....
We had a 'person' apply for a position.....we offered her the slot based upon the interview....HR bounced it back because she had Plea Bargined THEFT of a CREDIT CARD down to a misdemeanor.
We deal with guest Credit cards on virtually EVERY phone call.
She was shocked that we didn't want her.

It also allows "ex-cons" who want to live right to work an honest job for honest money and go home to their families.

thanks. What in the world is a "gross misdemeanor"? I think all crimes are gross.

I work in a wharehouse near the airport. We joke that we have the entire population of cell block D. There are jobs in Vegas, where they don't ask about anything other than can you do the job. If you pass the pi** test, and show up every day, and just act like you care. You can be employed.
