Becoming a Black-jack dealer was probably the very best job conclusion I ever produced. I had been jumping from occupation to occupation executing data-entry and the like, and I was bored to death. Sitting behind a desk in front of the computer system all evening just wasn’t "doing it" for me. Not to mention the shell out wasn’t that good either.

So, immediately after being laid off from my last task, I hit the classifieds and saw an ad for a Chemin de fer dealing course. I was a little bit skeptical, contemplating it might be a few "fly by night" outfit wherever they bring my money, I carry the course and absolutely nothing comes of it. Except after I called their head office and asked them about the organization, I learned that the course was for one of the most well-known casinos in the reduce mainland! They ended up extending their several hours and essential A lot of dealers.

I’d just been to Vegas for your very first time a few months prior to and I wagered a tiny Pontoon. It looked easy ample so I figured "how difficult could it be to offer?" At the employment interview, which was basically to sign up with the course, I discovered that it wasn’t all that straightforward. I was given a short written test to determine if I could, in truth, count card totals and figure Blackjack pay outs. I must have done okay because I was called back a couple of days later to carry the four week training course.

It was rather intense. 6 days a week, seven hours a day in a modest room with low ceilings plus a dozen Blackjack tables. There had been about 100 other persons from all walks of lifetime taking the course as well as me and with the first week, all we did was count card totals and have lessons for the rules and procedures of Black jack. By the end of the initial week, we ended up dealing actual games. Believe me when I say that there is A lot much more to it than you think. I was totally blown away at simply how much there was to learn, and how much I nevertheless experienced yet to find out.

When we reached the end of the last week, there could well be the dreaded Table Check. If I failed that, I’d be done. Luckily, we have been going to be taking it twice, and the best score could be taken. I was in the last group to consider the first check and I was much more than a tiny nervous. I knew I’d failed that day time for sure and I drove home thinking about every one of the faults I made. The subsequent evening, I felt greater and knew what it was I had to do to be able to pass. When the examiner tried to "trip me up" using the errors I had manufactured the evening ahead of, I handled it flawlessly.

I needed to wait virtually a week prior to the graduation, and I was literally tearing my hair out. The offer was that if they called me before then, I’d failed. My dad believed it could be amusing to tell me that "someone called searching for you" when I’d come home from being out. Really funny. NOT. But, since I in no way got "the call", I showed up for my certificate and I was on my way to being a dealer. I was lucky enough to receive the location about ten mins from my house and I was excited to start what just might be a life-long and fulfilling job.
