The New York branch of Rivers Casino is offering a six-week training course to become a table games dealer free of charge

Job opportunities have arisen at Rivers Casino in Schenectady, NY. The resort is offering participants the chance to receive free training over the course of six weeks, with those who successfully complete the course receiving their New York State gaming license.

Not only this, participants who pass their final audition will be offered part-time and full-time jobs as a table games dealer at the casino.

Rivers Casino offers employees hourly wages and tips in excess of $25 an hour along with benefits including paid time off, medical plans and more. Candidates must be available to work all shifts, including weekends and holidays.

The course is valued at $5,000 by Rivers Casino but for now is available without a fee for accepted applicants. Participants will be taught a range of games, including classics such as blackjack, and the opportunity is open to anyone from beginners with zero knowledge to those with more experience.

Classes will be held five days a week, from Monday through Friday and all applicants must be 21 years of age or older.

Classes start on January 8, giving applicants the chance to kick off the new year with a new career. Rivers Casino encourages anyone interested to apply as soon as possible via their website.

Rivers Casino recently donated $1m to the Penn Treaty Special Services District (SSD). The SSD funds are then used to sponsor neighborhood events to improve local infrastructure. Rivers Casino's total contributions to the Penn Treaty SSD has now reached $11.4m since 2009.
