Horseshoe Casino Baltimore announced plans to hire at least 100 table games dealers with guaranteed minimum earnings of $25 per hour. The move comes as business volumes at the casino increase in response to the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions citywide.
Horseshoe Baltimore will host a series of paid dealer academies in coming months to train candidates for the positions. No previous experience or training is necessary to attend the academies. To accommodate as many prospective employees’ schedules as possible, the casino will offer two academy structures, three-week academies that run eight hours per day and six-week academies that run four hours per day.
Dealer candidates will earn $11.75 per hour as they complete the training sessions. The latest three-week academy began June 7. The next six-week academy will begin June 28. Each of the academies will be held on-site at Horseshoe Baltimore.
“We have seen a dramatic increase in the number of guests visiting the casino in recent weeks,” said Horseshoe Baltimore Senior Vice President and General Manager Randy Conroy. “As demand returns to pre-pandemic levels, we’re excited to be creating scores of jobs that not only pay extremely well but offer a comprehensive benefits package and great career advancement potential.”
Those hired to fill the table games positions will receive a $500 signing bonus after their first 90 days of employment and a $1,000 bonus after a year of employment. The positions offer a full range of benefits, from medical and dental insurance to a 401(k) retirement plan. The $25 per hour guarantee includes a combination of wages, tips and incentive pay for each hour a dealer works upon successful completion of a training academy or if hired with qualifying training from another casino.
Interested candidates must register to attend a virtual information session. More information about open positions at the casino is available at Horseshoe Baltimore’s online recruiting page.
