Any advice would be helpful although I am leaning towards the strat position just for the financial security but I feel I would enjoy working as a dealer at Club Fortune much more.
Remember to look at the positions as how they will look on your resume' and how one might help or hurt moving into a better job in the future.
It might be worth it to put up with more negatives in a job if it will help you down the road.
Ask her.Quote: NicksGamingStuff
She sent me to audition because I have a cocky attitude, I am not sure what that was supposed to mean.
She's not a potential employer where you want to keep your mouth shut to avoid screwing something up. She'd supposed to be helping you. Ask her what she meant. Also, ask her if she thought that was a good thing or not. Is an audition at Club Fortune a good thing? I mean, did she have the option of sending you somewhere else? Was the somewhere else a dump or nicer?
If you recall, that dealer we had at Terribles was a lot of fun. Even though she killed me and the Wiz, and Miplet won a grand total of one buck, we liked her because she was fun.
Then again, I think one key thing to being liked by a player is to have a personality - ANY personality. Some dealers are just cold, silent, robots, taking chips.
Don't you mean $11.21 per hour? FYI: It actually calculates out at $9.61 per hour.Quote: NicksGamingStuff
This position is a salaried position ($35k/year) but required a 6 day 60 hour work week.
...what comes down to about $11 an hour ...
If you're comparing it to an hourly rate job, you have to factor in those 20 hours of O/T. 40 hours + 20 O/T = 70. Therefore 35000 / 52 / 70 = 9.61.
You gotta do what you gotta do, but that seems like a lot of hours for not a lot of money. It also leaves you with little time to look for something better.
a 6 day 60 hour work week.
Ouch!!...so much for having a life.
My advice is to go with the dealer job. The Stratosphere job will not leave enough time to have a life and I think you'll rise up faster with the dealing job.
See how Club Fortune works out. There will be other jobs like the one at the Strat out there if need be.
I assume the dealer job.
Therefore, take it, but also get some BS job with a flexible schedule just to supplement the cash.
I used to work as a driver for Dominos. Not the greatest job, but the schedule was VERY flexible. Just about the only time it wasn't, was for the dinner rush on Fridays. With tips I was averaging $10-11 per hour. And this was about 20 years ago.
Just something to think about.
This was a group audition probably done in arrangement with the school.
Club Fortune is a smoke filled rinky dink place. IF they offer a job, ... it sure won't pay much.
Strat is 35K but its not dealing or casino mgmt.
