    I have a college friend na pumasok as card dealer sa Casino Filipino in Tagaytay after our graduation. I think her starting salaray was around 20k and this was way back 2001.

    yup, their salary could go up to 20k - 30k in a month.

    maliit lang yung basic, yung malaki si the tip na hinahati hati.

    kailangan din may degree para makapag apply as a table supervisor

    strict nga sila sa transcript of records eh, meron kasi kuwento yung college classmate ko na nasa Pagcor meron daw sila nakasabay sa training nila na na dismiss nung last day of training kasi nalaman na falsified *** Transcript of Records nya.

    Also you really need to be damned good in Math.

    anong "SKILL" ba ang kailangan para i-consider ka nila pag nag apply ka?
    Yup sabi nga sakin, prefered daw nila Engineering or Com. Science graduates, kailangan din daw mataas ang IQ at magaling sa probability

    hirap mag apply sa pagcor kailangan may backer ka dun.

    I am an ex-casino dealer in Pagcor. I was amazed sa mga inquiries sa taas. Well let me give my views.

    You cannot apply directly to the Corporate office for the position of table supervisor. Someone must back you up. So if you think you can get hired just by passing your resume, forget it.

    They "rarely" post job vacancies on newspapers kaya good luck.

    Yes, nasa 20 to 30K ang pwedeng matanggap ng isang casino dealer and inclusive with meals during your shift and tip na rin.

    I have worked as a TS for more than a year din and the reason I left is personal -- akin na lang yon.

    Masaya sa casino lalo na pag Christmas season dahil sa mga bonuses etc.

    In an 8-hour shift, almost 2 hours ang breaktime mo.

    Other than those I mentioned above, let me say here the not so positive side.

    1. Work here is shifting, like in call centers, and it's toxic when you are at night shift. Dami tao siyempre at night and especially weekends. At the start of the shift, each TS is assigned to a particular table.

    2. If you've never been a passive smoker all your life, you will be when you work in the casino. In CF-Pavilion where the ceiling of the gaming area is so low, you may think you're in the middle of a fog unlike the gaming area in Cebu. So trip mong lumanghap ng passive smoke 6 hours per shift, pasok ka dito.

    3. If you are the type of person who desires to climb the corporate ladder of success, I don't think casino is the best place. Once you become a TS, the next level up is the assistant gaming area manager or AGAM. AGAMs are relatively fewer compared to the table supervisors and unless you are a very prolific table supervisors backed with a recommendation from Malacanang, forget being promoted as AGAM. Why? -- There are many Senior table supervisors ahead of you by years and years of experience, most of them have reached their 40s and 50s still working as a table supervisor.

    4. Are you the person who is always up for a challenging work and career? If yes, being a card dealer is not the job for you. With the routine, repetitive nature of your work, it gets very robotic and mechanical as months and years go by. At first, when I was new at my work as a TS, it was really exciting for me. Everyday, I learn something new and the surroundings and the environment never fail to fascinate me. But I realized as time went by I felt stuck. If I worked in a call center company, I would have greater chances of being promoted to the top compared to the casino. It's not really worth your time.

    5. Are you the person who loves to please and entertain people? Well you might enjoy being a casino dealer then. You love to please every caprice, whim, and idiosyncrasy of the gamblers? You might fit in here. As for me, no way. These gamblers suck! A brood of greedy people always ready to gamble on whatever money they have on their hand for the empty thrill of winning in the casino -- I dont want to say anymore.

    6. I have met in this place some of the most ill-bred and ill-mannered people you could ever think of! Cmon what do you expect to find in a casino anyway? Of course there are few exceptions and oh my they are very few indeed. You like working with co-employees who are "balahura" and "*****" plus arrogant and know-it-all superiors? Apply in the casino.

    Before I end let me just say this... If you are a person with talent and ambition in life, working here should not be an option for you. Dont waste your talent in exchange for a secure job and just a "decent" income. It's not worth it. Working abroad is still a better option.

    There are many opportunities around now so unless you're so desperate of your situation, dont get in here, especially if you think that your personality would not fit in.

    I can say that during the time I worked in the casino, I could never boast of it to any of my relatives or friends. It's one of my biggest regrets in life...so please dont it be one of yours too.

    sana nasagot ko yung tanong nung threadstarter. God bless.

    I agree with Archgold. If you have ambition in life, being a table supervisor in a casino is not the best option, nor is it one of the better ones.

  15. #15
    agree din ako especially about being a passive smoker, buti kung 8 hours lang ang shift mo...e minsan may 12 hour shift kami on weekends...but i don't regret working in the casino kasi hindi ako sa pagcor...sa cruise line ako...hehehe so it allowed me to travel a lot...after ko mag travel lumayas na ko sa casino...travel lang naman ang habol ko dun eh...

  16. #16
    any posible backer here?

  17. #17
    archgold: thanks a lot for the infos. it really helps me think now if i'd pursue this or have my experience na lang in a hotel.

    not that i got chickened out ha? because i've been in the car sales and call center industries, so believe me i've seen alot of bad attitudes from customers to co-workers. natakot lang ako dun sa 2nd hand smoking kasi it'll be even more hazardous to my health bec i'm also a smoker. so kung gusto ko pa ma-enjoy buhay ko, i should think twice. hehehe...

    others, pls post more comments or infos re casino dealer in pagcor. will appreciate any.

    Btw clace, my sister works in a 4-star or 5-star hotel (not really quite sure) as a room attendant. Because it is a high-end hotel in makati, most of the guests are well off so she gets tip every now and then. A guest even gave her a pair of shoes worth P6000 but she gave it to me! hehehe

    I do honestly think that a career in hotel is a good choice especially if you are planning to work abroad where hotel workers are in demand.

    archgold: oo nga. isa pa sabi may height requirement sila sa casino. i'm not sure if this is true. 5'2" lang kaya ako. sa hotel di ba may height requirement din?

    ewan ko ba bakit dito sa pinas masyado mahigpit sa height and age requirement. sana katulad na lang tayo sa abroad where they don't discriminate your status. e di sana maraming applicants with potentials ang may trabaho.

    my sister works in mariott hotel in vancouver, sabi nya doon daw walang height, age, marital status requirements. kahit highschool grad ka lang makakapasok ka as front desk or concierge. sa airline pwede ka flight attendant kahit hs grad. oh well...

    clace: Dto kasi sa atin actually it's "who" you know that matters more lalo na sa mga jobs na mahirap pasukin like casino, etc. Pagkaalam ko may height requirement sa hotel pero minsan daw sabi ng kapatid ko formality lang yun especially if they badly need personnel.

    Good luck sa job hunting mo.
