Default Casino or Boutique? Torn!

Hi everyone,

I've had so much fun reading all the posts on this board. I'm interested in working and possibly a career working on cruiseships. I have lots of retail sales experience both in clothing/accessories and jewelry. I recently started a job working as a croupier in a casino. Blackjack and Texas holdem. Do I need other games?

I'm getting my resume together but I'm torn with which avenue to pursue. Boutique or Casino? I love both and I'm torn. Which in your opinion would be better for advancement? Pros and cons?

I have the Toronto contact for the boutique positions. I have found oceancasinojobs.com for the casino postings. Does anyone have another recruiter for the casino jobs?

Thank you for all the information you have provided. I've been doing a lot of research on this new venture and this site calms my nerves when I get overwhelmed.

Hi

I was hired as an onboard jeweller with Princess and I love it. We get a decent amount of port time and working in the jewellery shop is definitely a bit easier than the other shops.
I was hired by www.pmcmarine.com They were great to deal with and took care of everything. Make sure you apply for a jeweller position if you have that experience. The $$ is better than a regular shoppie.

Hope this helps.

TO Gal25,

That was great information. I love jewelry. I spoke to pmcmarine yesterday. They were so nice!!!! I asked if they also hired the casino staff, which they don't, but they advised me for those jobs with the individual cruiselines. Which is where I found a casino job posted. I'm still torn with which to purse but I guess I can apply for both and see where I get hired. I'm leaning towards casino because I do it now and it's a lot of fun! What kind of jewelry was it. Costume? or Precious stones?

I had a friend who worked for Princess in the spa and loved it! He wants to go back as an entertainer. Are you going to go on another contract?

If you're still in Toronto I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather that we're finally getting.

Thanks for your support by taking the time to reply and share your info.
