Maryland is about to become a big state for live roulette, as well as live casino games in general. If you like to play roulette and you live in Maryland, then you’re probably happy to hear this news. Even if you don’t play roulette, this news can be beneficial to you. That’s because thousands of dealers for table games are being hired at Maryland Live! Casino.
The good news here is that you don’t need any experience to apply for this job. The bad news is that you will have a lot of competition. There are expected to be 10,000 applicants, some of which are current roulette dealers already in Atlantic City and West Virginia. It would be wise not to get intimidated, though. Most live casinos like to mix up their dealers in regards to experienced and inexperienced. With an annual salary of $45,000 to $55,000 with tips, it’s worth the effort to apply. However, if you have a criminal background, then you might want to sit this one out. Maryland Live! Casino is performing background checks on all applicants.
If you choose to apply for a blackjack dealer position, then there is one very important warning. If you have thin skin, then this isn’t the job for you. Losing players will often blame the dealer for their woes. In some instances, their attacks will be personal. If you can handle this kind of abuse, then disregard.
If you get the job, you will have to go through 12 weeks and 240 hours of training. That in itself can be grueling. Maryland Live! Casino will open in mid-April, 2013.
