As you know very well, casinos have always been places of intense excitement and a lot of fun. Working there should be the same, don’t you think?
Well, you should know that there are a lot of positives and drawbacks to being a casino dealer. In this guide, I will be discussing a lot of things that would make it a little challenging to be a casino dealer. I am not saying that there aren’t any advantages; there are a lot of them. One of the biggest advantages is that you could end up making hundreds of dollars in just tips, in a single day, depending on which season it is. In this guide, I will not be discussing the advantages. I will be focusing on things that make it challenging for a casino dealer.
- Firstly, I would like to mention that a casino dealer will usually have to be on his feet all the time. Some casino dealers have been given chairs. But, I would like to say that it depends on the game. It depends on which game you are dealing. Sitting is definitely the new smoking. Standing all day is something that is going to get tiresome, and standing is still healthy for you. But, it does mean that you have to be on your legs all day. Some casinos offer the dealers a lot of breaks, so that they have energy. Some casinos do not do this. Some of them only offer 2 to 3 breaks in an entire day of work. You need to be okay with standing on your feet all day. Personally, I think that standing on your feet will help you maintain your weight. You will not be trying to lose weight, but you will be feeling very energetic, and your body will not be storing the unnecessary fat that it possibly consumes. You will also be given a lunch break, which is around one hour long.
- This job can actually be a little physically and mentally tiring. You will have to deal with people all day long. On a busy day in a good casino, if we are talking about weekends, you will be dealing with thousands of customers. The players are not exactly always well mannered. You may have to deal with certain route individuals. You will have to deal with them professionally. You should not be rude to them, even if they are rude to you. Some customers can be very horrible. You are not exactly allowed to yell at them, even if they are horrible to you. You are not allowed to get angry at them. It could possibly jeopardise your job in the casino, if you react to their negative advances. You will have to deal with it in a professional manner, because how you deal with it, will reflect on the reputation of the casino. If a customer is being very horrible to you, you will have the option of calling casino security. They will take care of everything after that.
