I have just given notice at my job. I will be working in a brand new poker room in a brand new casino in a brand new multi-building, multi-purpose complex.
The new City Center features 5 different buildings, hotels, condos, restaurants, entertainment, and one casino called Aria.
And I am leaving my current place of work, a small locals casino in North Las Vegas, to go there.
For those counting, that's poker room number 8 in 6 years.
Am I doing the right thing? Of course nobody can see what the future holds. And even if it doesn't work out, does that automatically make it wrong to have tried? Is it ever wrong to try?
Everything is scary in today's Las Vegas. A new property means uncertain success, 90 days of probation, fear of overhiring...
Staying where I am means the fear of the room closing (business is very slow) and new people in upper management (they are already closing Keno in December.)
So...I don't know.
