‘Casino School’ Gives Students Chance For Employment At Springfield Casino


SCHOOL IS ABOUT TO BE IN SESSION. CASINO SCHOOL, THAT IS. MGM SPRINGFIELD IS WORKING TO TEACH PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYEES HOW TO BE DEALERS. THE RESORT IS LOOKING TO HIRE 150 TABLE GAME AND POKER DEALERS BEFORE IT OPENS THIS YEAR. COMPLETING TWO CLASSES AT THE SCHOOL GUARANTEES YOU AN AUDITION. Reporter: THEY’RE SHOWING OFF THE CASINO SCHOOL IN SPRINGFIELD, A UNIQUE CLASSROOM FILLED NOT WITH DECHCKZ BUT GAMING TABLES. BLACK JACK, ALL THE DIFFERENT POKER DERIVATIVE NOVELTY GAMES. WHATEVER YOU SEE ON A CASINO FLOOR, WE’LL TEACH HERE. Reporter: THE 10-WEEK CLASSES START AT THE END OF THE MONTH AND CONTINUE THROUGH JUNE, BUT YOU’LL PAY TUITION FROM $200 TO $600 PER CLASS, AND THAT DOES NOT GUARANTEE A JOB. WE WANT YOU TO TAKE AT LEAST TWO CLASSES AND GIVE YOU A CERTIFICATE. WE’LL GIVE YOU AN AUDITION, OUR FORM OF AN INTERVIEW. Reporter: ANGEL RIVERA IS ONE OF THE TEACHERS. HE’S FROM SPRINGFIELD AND HAS WORKED IN THE BUSINESS NEARLY 30 YEARS, MOSTLY IN ATLANTIC CITY. ONE OF THE MORE MOTIVATED PEOPLE. MOTIVATED, ENERGETIC STUDENTS. LOOKING FORWARD TO STARTING A NEW CAREER. Reporter: STUDENTS LIKE DIANNE GARVEY. I’M HOPEFUL I’LL BE ABLE TO PASS THROUGH THE GAMING CLASSES AND BECOME A DEALER. Reporter: FOR PEOPLE WHO DO GET JOBS, THEIR TUITION WILL BE REIMBURSED IF THEY STAY A YEAR. I’M GOING TO START WITH BLACK JACK AND THEN I THINK I’M GOING TO TAKE UP CRAPS BECAUSE I KNOW THAT’S AN EXCITING GAME. WE’VE GOT A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE, CBSBOSTON.COM. MGM PLANS TO OPEN THAT CASINO BY THE FALL. IT’S CERTAINLY A WELL PAYING JOB. ARE YOU A GAMBLER? NO, SHOCKINGLY, I’M VERY CONSERVATIVE ABOUT THAT KIND OF THING. [ LAUGHTER ]
