Casino jobs offer a chance for better pay, career advancement
Increased pay attracted Ann Spencer to employment at Splash Casino in 1992, she said. Nearly 22 years later, she said the gaming industry was indeed a catch.
“Before the casinos came, there really wasn’t an industry where you could work and get paid better,” she said.
Like Spencer, other long-term casino employees said the gaming industry brought high-paying career opportunities for those who were willing to ante up by working hard, sticking with it, and making sacrifices.
Before working in the gaming industry, Spencer was a bookkeeper and secretary at a local lumber company. She started at Splash as a receptionist but worked her way up to her current role of regional office manager at Bally’s and Resorts casinos.
