Job seekers, get ready to shuffle up and deal. The World Series of Poker is gearing up for its upcoming tournaments and has quite a few positions that need to be filled.
The World Series of Poker, a division of Caesars Interactive Entertainment, runs from the end of May through mid-July at the Rio and requires a staff of about 2,350 employees to successfully operate each year. The organization is looking for applicants in all areas of operations — dealers, cage and chip personnel, food and beverage staff, customer service representatives and everything in between — to staff its fast-approaching 2016 series.
After establishing a successful relationship last year, WSOP again is working with the Clark County School District to provide employment to teachers and school staff who want short-term employment while school is out of session.
For those interested in dealer positions, auditions are being held at the Rio, 3700 W. Flamingo Rd., every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through the beginning of May. Prior to attending an audition, you must submit an application online.
Approximately 1,700 positions do require an active Nevada Gaming License — dealers, supervisors, etc. Upon hiring, WSOP/Caesars Interactive will help new hires acquire the required document.
Although the majority of the positions for the annual tournament are temporary, there is potential for these jobs to turn into full-time opportunities.
According to WSOP, “with nine Caesars properties in Las Vegas, when we have openings, this talent pool is often drawn upon to fill open positions.”
