With vaccinations increasing and coronavirus restrictions loosening, casinos in Pennsylvania are looking to hire more employees.
As of April 4, casinos could resume drink service on the gaming floor and seating at bars is permitted in addition to expanded capacity.
Sure, casinos are “always hiring” as there are open positions listed on LinkedIn, Indeed, and the casino’s career website. But in the past few weeks, they have amped up efforts to recruit new employees.
Jobs at PA Casinos
Some are hosting job fairs and open full and part-time positions include:
- Table games dealers

Now for something different. Evolution Gaming opened its live dealer studio in Philadelphia and live streams games like Blackjack and roulette for Pennsylvania online casinos. They are actively hiring and for some positions, no experience is necessary.
Even though players aren’t physically seated at the table, it’s important for game presenters to be engaging and professional.
Bryant McKay, Senior Team Manager at Evolution in Philadelphia said:
“We want the players to come back because of how personable you are. It’s something we base our values on – employees who value servicing the customers. It’s how we will thrive and continue to grow. One of the things we stress in onboarding is professionalism and engagement. All of our game presenters have unique personalities and a desire to make the customer want to come back.”
