What type of work do you do? I would think the casinos would have some openings.
Don't end your life, it's tough out there for alot of folks. I've been unemployed for a couple of months.

Last Vegas is very tough to find work, I never knew how tough! I'm originally from NJ. My entire life had 4 job offers at the same time in between jobs. I move here 6 years ago, heard you need to be living here for 3 years before someone will hire you because Vegas is such a transient town, I still put millions of applications in hoping to get lucky, Then heard you need to know someone to get a job. I'm sorry for the babbling! I just can't take this no more. It's my right to make a living. If lady luck don't come my way this week, will be ending my life this week.

Thank you for the reply!

It is EXTREMELY hard to find work here as it is anywhere else. If you want to work in the Casinos STOP right there. You can't even get an interview without ALOT of connections... and then there's the cards...

For example, my wife has 10 years experience as a bartender IN THE SAME restraunt! She has a spotless criminal record and even used to work as a preschool teacher. She has put in countless aps at Casinos & Bars and was very lucky to find a part time job as waitress.
To work anywhere in the Casino industry when you move to Vegas, you need a health card, a TAM (alcohol) card, and a Sheriff's card. You can't get a Sheriff's card unless the person who hires you "sponsors" you and nobody will hire you without it. It is a Catch 22. If you are lucky enough to finally get all of your cards by working at some sleazy dive in skid row (and there's lots of those here) then you have to have some HEAVY connections to even get an interview.
When you go into even the nice areas like Henderson, you will notice that there are LITERALLY HUNDREDS of illegals WHO LINE THE STREETS HERE willing to take ANYTHING for just a few dollars an hour. IT LOOKS LIKE A PARADE! As if it wasen't hard enough already...
So if you think that moving to Vegas to work in a Casino is a good idea, THINK AGAIN. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT CONNECTIONS. You will be VERY lucky to find a job here flipping burgers because there is an entire family of people willing to do it for $3 cheaper, ILLEGALLY!

Debra In Ohio: GOod luck to you in finding employment here. Make sure you have enough money to live on for at least a year. There is plenty of gloom and doom here and that's good that your friends are doing well. If you are young, pretty, have DuPont accessories on your body and can wear X-rated clothes, there is plenty of work out there for you. IF not, stand in line like the rest of us.

Raizincaine: I'm not too far from you; I'm in 89128. THe Desert Shores area is not totally ghetto!! It is actually quite pretty with those manmade lakes. If you go down Regatta, which starts out as Smoke Ranch then turns into REgatta at Buffalo, it is just gorgeous. However, I DID look at an apartment in that one section of Desert Shores; I believe it is off CHeyenne and some other street. Before even pulling into the drive to the gate, there were AT LEAST 6 shopping carts!! ALWAYS a bad sign!! And the unit we looked at was awful! Ande that's sad because the area is very nice except for these condos. I read in the Sun earlier this week that because they built so many new apartment complexes up north and in North Las Vegas, most are empty and the fear is the government will come in and convert them to Section 8 housing!! That's REALLY going to go over big with the people who live around these complexes. That's why I like my neighborhood; it's established and our complex has a very low vacany rate.

I heard them on the news this morning taking about the 200 jobs that need to be filled ASAP at the new M Resort, but it was all restaurant positions. It's too faraway for my liking; besides, I'm not a waitress, busperson or cook!!

Raizin Caine in Las Vegas, Nevada said: Yes.. Ghetto shores is off Cheyenne/ Rampart and across from the Albertson's. It's soo badd in there, if you never lived there, it's best not to. The security officer name Christian, messed with teen girls and sells drugs in there to minors. And shoot-off. It crazy! Glad I moved!!

We knew when we went looking in there that it was bad! I felt bad for those who do own condos in there and have to stay because of the housing market. It's so unfortunate since that is a great location and the rest of Desert Shores is so pretty. I have another friedn who lives in a townhouse but far away from the ghetto area. That's one thing I found about Las Vedgas when we first moved here: A ghetto can be located right smack dab in the middle of a nice neighborhood! Back east, that would NEVER happen!! When my ex and I first moved out here, we bought in this really nice gated community in North Las Vegas. There was one guy who bought up about 8 properties and turned them into Section 8 housing. For about about 5 years, it was not a big deal; nice good people were living in those homes, some elderly, the rest young families. But then about 5 years later, this owner rented out four houses to a bunch of lowlifes! Within a 2 month period of time, the cops were called more than a dozen times, gangbangers would just hang out to the point where we residents were afraid. THe gangbanging teenagers broke into a vacant house two doors down from us that was for sale and they used it as their drug/sex place! Finally the owner of these units was called to a special meeting of the HOA and he volunatarily evicted 3 of the 4 families. After that, things went back to normal and the neighborhood became safe again. Nothing against Section 8 houseing because we may all end up there someday because of the economy, but why do the few bad ones ruin it for everyone else?

Hello all, I was wondering does anyone know what the salaries start at for Security Guards. I see the MGM has openings but not sure about going cross country for very meager wages. I do have experience ,but as a corrections officer. Thanks all, I appreciate any insight.

Razin Caine in Las Vegas, Nevada

It depends on the experience. The City of North Las Vegas is hiring for police officers. But for Security Officers, It can range for $9.00/hr - $15.00/hr as it depends on your experience. So pay more if your an armed Guard. Look for Public Safety Officer like on the college campus and stuff. They pay more as you be protecting the states public buildings.

I don't want to be in law enforcement, not even being a civilian clerk, which is one of the first jobs I applied for when I first moved here in NOrth Las Vegas. I was married to a cop for 18 years. And I'm too old. I'm not too far from retirement (well, not so sure about that anymore!!) Even still - for ANY Of those security jobs - it helps if you have law enforcement experience whether in a police department or military, gun or no gun. This I know FOR A FACT. And for being a police officer these days, you need a college degree, primarily in law enforcement or any related subject. THey will sometimes bypass the degree if you have actual experience on a police force as a cop.

Bradly: You fit the bill being a corrections officer. Do your research first. Start with the North Las Vegas Police Dept. Go online. That will tell you much more about everything. I don't know if they are hiring right now, but it wouldn't hurt to start doing research. The starting pay is great, and better if you have experience. Also, since you do have a law enforcment background, your staring pay at a security job position is going to be higher than $8 an hour! But again, do your research. Security guard positions here are pretty decent. One note about working in a casino - you will start working the graveyard shift. You can eventually work your way up to a better shift the longer you are there.

NOTE TO BRADLY: I believe if you are called to take the test for NLVPD or even NHP, you will have to pay your own way. I don't think they pick up travel expenses. That's something to budget for and plan for. Just a heads up! I sasw on the local news yesterday that NLV is hiring. SO HURRY AND DO THE APPLICATION. Not 100% sure but you having a correctional facility background is good. ANy college?

I moved here and didn't know anyone. I got a temp job when I first came here and then applied for a position where I worked. I got 'lucky' or so I'm told. Beside the blatant bigotry and nepotism where I work the pay is good and the benefits are good but the people are mean spirited and cliquish.

If you're willing to sacrifice your integrity to make a decent living or look the other way when someone does something that's unethical and on the periphery of the law then you can get a job. As long as you don't tell anyone your opinion, your personal business or complain you're as good as gold because anyone who has lived here all their life is an authoritarian to the core.

It is hard, but you will find something. Since I have been here September of o7 it took me till february 08 to find my first job job, had a total of 4 interviews and put my resume out to hundreds of places. You will find something, I knew no one either.

Mandy in Las Vegas, Nevada

That is NOT true that you have to live here 3 years to get a job. More like 6 months to a year. ALso, the job market here is TOUGH! I was unemployed for SIX months and I've lived here for 7 years. I had already decided if I didn't find a job by mid-June, I was moving back to my hometown, Chicago. And I am in a profession (legal) that you would think had a lot of job opportunities but that was not the case. I finally did get a job and hopefully it will last until I can retire in 7 years.

So I hope that people do not think that there are jobs to be had and come here because THAT IS NOT THE CASE unfortunately. We now have the highest unemployment rate in the country. Many building projects have completely stopped so there are thousands of unemployed construction workers; the casinos lay off regularly and there are thousands of casino workers unemployed. If you can make do working at Walmart (and even those jobs are hard to come by) or working part time, hang in there. If not - I suggest you go back east again because the cities east of the MIssissippi will recover a lot quicker than Vegas. Vegas probably won't recover (and recover totally) for years/

las vegas is a town about whom you know,therefore if you are not part of the click then you are out of luck!I am trying to move as soon as I can get some money in my hands. I don't like using the word hate,but I can say this,I HATE LAS VEGAS!!!

Mandy in Las Vegas, Nevada

I'm going to also add to those thinking about moving here: THERE ARE NO JOBS!!!!! REPEAT -- NOT ENOUGH JOBS FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY UNEMPLOYED, LET ALONE THOSE WHO ARE THINKING OF MOVING HERE.

Until the State of Nevada realizes that you cannot have a healthy economy by relying JUST on gaming, it will never recover from this recession. The State needs to diversify - get other industries and companies in here but the politicians are too afraid to get out of bed with the casino corporations. And, now investors are buying up all these foreclosed properties. The investors ruined it to begin with and now they think they will be able to rent out these homes....and to whom? People are LEAVING Las Vegas to go elsewhere. So in another couple of years, the cycle will start all over again with the investors dumping the properties because they can't rent them.

And for those who say that have a job already and that is why they are coming here: THINK TWICE. The Job will not last.

Another thing - if you have any college degrees, it's a given you won't get a job. Or if you have longevity and experience in your chosen field, ie legal assistant, paralegal, forget it. They want the experience but won't pay for it so they hire those who will accept a $10 an hour position and wouldn't know the court house from Sam's Club. I have heard from my fellow unemployed that you have to "dumb down" your resume or else you won't even get an interview let alone have someone read your resume. I know attorneys who are working at moving companies, selling time share crap, etc.

I myself am moving out of Las Vegas next month and moving back home to Illinois. Sure, it's not golden there either but I have family and friends back there and at least I won't end up homeless - which is a big possibility if I stay here.

It's all very sad. I used to think Vegas would bounce back before other areas, but it doesn't look that way. We haven't even hit bottom yet so times ahead are going to be rough.

And don't believe all the hype you read about City Center hiring 12,000 people. There over 15,000 casino workers that have been layed off since 2008. So of those 12,000 City Center jobs, most likely they will all be filled with unemployed casino workers and NOT anyone else. Same with Hard Rock and Planet Hollywood. Always wtih the casinos - they hire those who already worked at or are working at a casino.

hey is this guy still alive? i just logged in, i was just curious. well, what can i say, it is tough to find a job in Vegas, specially without a degree on something. but that doesnt mean nobody is going to hire you. just got to stay strong, focus and be confident. i struggled too when i first moved to vegas but with lots of heart, commitment, and dedication i was able to finished my college and now work for the state as a correctional officer. well it wasnt that easy, i was actualy going through Hell at that time, i only had a hundred dollar to start of enough for the bus fair and food. i was going through a divorce, yeap caught my ex wife red handed,cheating while i was looken around for a job to support her... beat that! now try ending your life!

l in Austin, Texas said: Geez, I have never heard so much negativity. There are two huge casinos opening this year and more to come. Aliente also had another job fair this year. We do not even live in Las Vegas and applied for a job there and was offered the position. It is a great time to buy a home there, the prices are low and if you wait longer they will probably be lower.

You do not have to live there three years or more to get a job,you don't have to live there at all, you just have to be qualified.

Troy, get motivated and take a job doing something, earn some money and go to school to learn something higher paying!!!! Quit playing on the computer all day and crying to everybody who will listen.

EXECELLENT! well said my friend!!! thats the kind of comment we need in this site. too many NEGATIVE people! God BLess YOur heart. takecare and more power to you ma friend!!!

ALL the new casinos have already layed off hundreds of people. THERE IS NO WORK HERE!

ASK THOSE OF US WHO ACTUALLY LIVE HERE AND ARE TRYING TO FIND JOBS!!!

Now you can progress much faster in a major metropolitan market place compared to Lost Wages, NV Now you don't have to worry about knowing somebody just to get a real low paying service job! Places like Dallas, TX cater to the masses with tons of employment offers compared to this pee hole rotten town! The last thing on most major large corporations minds are who you know. They want to know your skill set, what experience you can bring to the company and so forth. They don't have time to know who knows you and all that stupid $hit!!! Who cares!!! All you need to know is the companies history and how they play a major role in today's business world. This is why I love living is the big city. It's to the point without all the B.S.

This is what is amazing (from the same article above)

"IN JULY, 7,800 ADDITIONAL WORKERS IN LAS VEGAS SOUGHT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS."

That's right people who are thinking of coming here: Almost 8000 people in Las Vegas ALONE filed for NEW unemployment benefits. That does not include those already collecting unemployment.

Life sucks in Lost Wages, NV

I am at the point right now that if I don't do what I am going to do - moving back home to Illinois - I will be homeless by January!!! I am so far behind in paying my bills, that as soon as I get back home, I have to file for bankruptcy. I can barely make just my basic financial obligations of rent, utilities, health care and food on a monthly basis. I don't drive my car unless I have to so I can save gas. I have a friend who disputes that things are so bad here but she has a job!! And she doesn't want to hear how bad things are here and it's only going to get worse and that article I posted confirms it.

I may not get a job right away back home, but at least I won't be homeless since I'll be living with a family member!! And I'll be able to afford my CObra premiums which will go back to the original cost in November of almost $500 a month.

I wonder why no one such as the media has done a study on how many people have actually left Las Vegas since January of 2009. From what I heard and this obviously isn't a confirmed fact with figures, but both the manager at the UHaul facility I am renting my truck from AND the tellers at two of teh WAMU locations that I go to have said many people have left or are leaving Las Vegas.

It is a sad state of affairs here. What once was a city that had so much potential is now a pathetic mess. And until the Powers That Be realize that you cannot have a healthy economy and a low unemployment rate when you rely on one industry to carry everything. And that is gambling.

Mandy in Las Vegas, Nevada

I agree with 3dfuzion. SOme areas of teh country will bounce back quicker. There are already signs in some States back east that things are slowly but surely getting better even though it may take some time. Texas wasn't bad in the first place so they are doing very well. It will be pockets of the country that will start seeing improvement, hopefully after the first of the year. But Vegas is doomed for at least the next few years, if not longer.

ANYONE who moves here, unless they are retirees, is doomed.

Mandy in Las Vegas, Nevada

City Center will be okay at the begining, but mark my words - by February or March, several thousand workers will lose their jobs! It is always like that when a new casino opens - everything is good for the first few months and then business will slow.

When City Center is completed, all the construction workers will lose their jobs and there is no future construction going on since the three that everyone was depending on have all shut down construction. The Fountainbleu, Echelon and there is another one I can't think of. All construction has stopped at these properties. So you will have several thousand construction workers with no jobs.

I might add that my livelihood in Las Vegas, NV shouldn't rely or be effected on behalf of me knowing someone just to get a damn job! When did I ever give a rat's a$$ about that and why should I be losing any sleep over something so pointless and stupid? The Las Vegas, NV hiring process is like reverse psychology 101 you will not get a call for an interview and even after you apply, they might call you a month later. Yeah, like that's going to do something for me when my rent is due by the end of the month. This place is humane and that's why Las Vegas, NV is cursed by GOD! Actions speak more then words!!!

3dfuzion in North Las Vegas, Nevada said: Yes, and you should of done your research before moving here. Statistically, Las Vegas, NV is the most abandoned city in the United States. Vegas beats Detroit For "The Most Abandoned City in America" So that should register in your head that Las Vegas, NV is the worst place to relocate and live or even get a real job! I hope you have plastic credit cards to make it on for 5 to 6 months because what ever life style or comfort zone you once had my friend is long over with.

The only reason las vegas is most abandoned is because its the fstest growing city in the nation as far as people moving here and construction so jokers that come here decide they dont like it and bad mouth it because of their own fault of doing any research before moving here. I moved here from san diego, ca in '93 with ten dollars in my pocket, a bicycle and a stack of resumes, i had a job the next day and six months later was working in a new casino that opened up making top wage, as far as las vegas for me goes, i was dealt an ace since moving to this town and have never regretted it, i still love my san diego and miss my ocean but they are close enough to get to i dont mind. so i say, if you dont like it, move on!!

3dfuzion in North Las Vegas, Nevada

Yes, like I said before a fan of one and not many. It's nice to hear your success story but for most it's not that easy.
Your favored industry "Casinos" are "EPIC FAILURES" which you can not rely on for anything. I can't tell you how many horror stories I have heard of these so called big named casinos over hiring and then laying off 1000's after business slows. I don't even care for casinos anymore has I'm already working in a position that came to Vegas. Finally some kind of industry in Las Vegas, NV besides a smoke filled Casino with no jobs or future....

You can't compare 1993 to 2009.

Yes, case in point. His logic makes no since from the dates posted from 1993 and comparing it to 2009. Another perfect example of how backwards folks think in Vegas. And how does your beloved city Vegas hold up now? Looks like Lady luck stomped hard on the gas and pointed her titties east.

that's ok, its 2009 and still i have no problem finding a job ( i have experience in other fields than casinos) i dont understand whats the problem with the ones who move here and cant find a job. and no i dont rely on any pull from my past. i just recently applied for city center and was offered a position, true my resume is steller but i havnt been in casino work for many years, so in defence of las vegas again, i say, dont like it, dont go away mad, just go away.

I moved here from san diego, ca in '93 with ten dollars in my pocket, a bicycle and a stack of resumes, i had a job the next day and six months later was working in a new casino that opened up making top wage, as far as las vegas for me goes, i was dealt an ace since moving to this town and have never regretted it, i still love my san diego and miss my ocean but they are close enough to get to i dont mind. so i say, if you dont like it, move on!!

Las Vegas is NO LONGER the fast growing city. After City Center is completed, there is no new construction on the horizon. The other two properties that were to be built are now on hold = Echelon and Fountainbleu. So thousands of construction workers will be unemployed.

And if you live here - you KNOW casino jobs are temporary at best. Those 7800 people who filed for NEW unemployment claims in July go against your optisimism that was here over 15 years ago; hell, the optimism of 7 years ago when I first came here. Things have changed and you should Thank God you STILL have a job.

I'm sorry Dave, if I was an HR hiring manager - with your spelling and command of basic grammar - I would never hire you, but then as you say - you got a City Center job. Doing what, you don't say. Something for minimum wage? However - Good Luck in January when you are on the unemployment rolls.

I've been here 7 years, work in a profession that you will NEVER be qualified for and cannot find a job. So don't go bragging - or stretching the truth - about your job situation. It is a well-known fact anyone with a college degree or has any amount of higher education - Vegas doesn't want you BECAUSE you don't need either to work in a casino unless you are "upstairs" in the executive suites. One must "downplay" your intelligence to find a job here unless you are in the medical profession. It will always be a "minimum wage" town as long as the casinos are running things and as such, will attract those types of job seekers. And that is what is sad: This could be a great city to live in and to settle down in for the rest of your life, but it will always be a transient town.

You are 44 and you write like that???? The Cali school system must be as bad as the Clark County School District.

Dave's from Las Vegas, NV He's another perfect example of the Nevada Higher Education schooling system. Go have a coke and a smile because no one gives a $hit here. Just because you got a job doesn't give you the right to walk around with a hard on.
