  • Station Casinos offers interns the opportunity to spend 12 weeks working in a Las Vegas casino.
  • Applicants must be enrolled in college and must be 21 if they wish to work in the arcade.
  • Station’s vice president of training told Insider that successful candidates should show ambition and passion.

A casino company offers interns $15 an hour, free housing, and the opportunity to work on the gambling floor of a Las Vegas casino.

Station Casinos, a family-owned casino and restaurant operator, is accepting applications for its 12-week Summer 2022 Internship Program.

During the second year of the program, interns will have the chance to work in different departments of the company, including social media, casino operations, finance and on the playing field.

Candidates will be matched with mentors already working in the company and will complete a project which they will then present to senior management at the end of the 12 weeks. In addition to their hourly wages, the company will cover their airfare and living expenses and will organize weekly excursions in and around Las Vegas.

Applicants must currently be enrolled as an undergraduate at a college or university, although anyone seeking a position on the playing field must be over 21.

Once their curriculum vitae has been submitted, candidates will be asked to complete a questionnaire. If they are accepted, they will then have several phone steps and

interviews.

“What we’re looking for are interns who have the curiosity to know more, to do more, to experience Las Vegas and step out of their comfort zone,” said Deborah Ferris, vice president of the training for Station Casinos, at Insider.

She said applicants who can demonstrate ambition and passion for what they are currently doing in school will stand out. Of 2,000 applicants last year, 11 successfully entered the program, Ferris said.

One of them was 24-year-old Troy LeFevre, who spent 12 weeks working in table games and operations at Station’s Green Valley Ranch Casino during the summer of 2021.

He started working in food and beverage at casinos in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio when he was 18, and applied for the internship because it would give him the opportunity to go further, he said, something that had been an aspiration.

After graduating from Bowling Green State University — with a degree in international business and management, with a minor in French studies — LeFevre accepted the offer of a full-time position at Station Casinos.

According to him, what made his internship application successful?

“I just wanted to make it very clear that even though I play a role in game operations, if they needed me to clean the floors or organize a marketing giveaway, whatever they needed me to do, I would happily do it,” LeFevre told Insider.
