River City Casino, which parent Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. plans to open next year in Lemay, is looking for more than 200 full-time and part-time craps, blackjack, roulette and poker dealers.
The casino is now accepting applications for its free dealer-training academy. Applicants must be at least 21 years old.
Applicants who make it through the interview process will begin a 10-week course on craps in October, followed by eight-week classes for blackjack, roulette and poker beginning in November.
Participation in the academy is non-paid and doesn't guarantee employment as a dealer with River City. Graduates who complete the training in January 2010 must then pass an audition prior to being offered a position, Pinnacle said.
River City is expected to cost $392 million, including about $25 million in capitalized interest and $10 million operating cash for the cage, slot machines and bank accounts.
The opening of River City depends on final approval by the Missouri Gaming Commission.
Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment (NYSE: PNK), headed by Chairman and CEO Daniel Lee, also owns and operates Lumiere Place in downtown St. Louis as well as casinos in Nevada, Louisiana, Indiana and Argentina.
