Hi. I am new to the Nevada forum ( I am always on the Colorado forum)..it is where I live.

Anyway,.....I wonder why people don't ask about being a "Wine Angel" at the Mandalay Bay?? I soooo think that it would be the best job and one would be paid $$$$$ for it. Am I stupid to think this??? If I were younger,....this is the job I would go for!!
I know it is hard to make a living anywhere you go but, some places must be better than others, right??
Does anyone know what the requirements are for this job?? NOT for me but, for a relative.

Thank You so much for any replies. I LOVE your State!!!

There are quite a few very unique and special jobs in LV. A Wine Angel is certianly one of them. This is a job you most certianly have to know some one to get. Like maybe Daddy is the CEO something simular.

And once the very special lucky girl gets that job you can bet she will never ever give it up till no one wants to look at her body anymore. Then the new replacement job will be assigned by the CEO to his daughter or some one close.

Forget it. You have a better chance winning the mega bucks then landing that job. But I admire your imagination.

"Wine Angel?" What the fark is that? Hmmm...it sounds like some artsy fartsy HR name for a sommelier. There are a lot of intense courses on all aspects of wine, beer, spirits, and their relationship with food. There is quite a bit of testing involved before one gets their certification. This isn't a job for some Joe Bob could do because he's had a couple bottles of Two Buck Chuck.

Exactly. I would think the competition of attractive young women who know wine is relatively limited. But, yes, I think you would have to know wine. But I don't know how their operation works.

Don't think any of you are thinking about this. "Wine Angels" are basically another blue color position. They chase it in the stack...they don't pick it out. If I remember correctly they receive no tip income. Been a while but I would think it a fun but not well paying job.

Wine Angels fly through the air up to all the wine bottles in the racks above the restaurant

The Wine Angel position is just like any other job, yes there are certain requirements for it . No ! you dont have to be related to the ceo of mandalay bay. Not many people know about Aureole and the 50 ft. wine tower and compared to all the other jobs out there for attractive young ladies in las vegas, this is definitely on top for class . if you want to ask about the pay, it definitely would not be close to minimum wage . Hello ! ever heard of teamsters ???

I used to know one of the workers there. The wine angels got $15 an hour and a % of the tip out from the servers. All in all it came out to be about a $25/per hour job. Not too shabby.
