COUNT ROOM VOLUNTEERS:
  • You sort, count, verify and amalgamate cash from drop boxes.
  • Two of these positions involve using money counting machines.
  • You should be good working with your hands.
CASHIER:
  • You redeem players' chips and make change (you do not sell chips).
  • You will be required to follow defined pay out procedures that you will learn at the casino.
  • You have your own float -- you do not share your cash/chip float with anybody.
  • Cash-handling experience is an asset, but not necessary.
  • The cashier's job requires concentration and accuracy.
  • Casino chips are colour coded according to denomination. You may wish to choose another volunteer position if you are colour blind.

  • You should be able to physically transport casino chips (weighing up to 3 kg) to the table games.
  • When delivering chips, you will always be accompanied to the table games by a casino security guard or a casino manager.
  • Your other job is to verify the chip count at each table game, when tables are opened or closed throughout the day.
  • You use a very simple mini-computer to complete your transactions.
  • You are not usually too busy except at the opening and closing of the casino day.
