“We have seen a dramatic increase in the number of guests visiting the casino in recent weeks,” said Horseshoe Baltimore Senior Vice President and General Manager Randy Conroy. “As demand returns to pre-pandemic levels, we’re excited to be creating scores of jobs that not only pay extremely well but offer a comprehensive benefits package and great career advancement potential.”

Horseshoe said candidates will be trained in paid dealer academies within the coming months. Previous experience or training is not required to attend the academies. All sessions will be held at the casino and dealer candidates will earn $11.75 per hour as they complete the training sessions.
