Plan to arrive in Las Vegas from Monday to Friday, as you will not be able to do the necessary paperwork over the weekend. Also start early in the morning, even though it is Vegas, these government offices are only open during business hours.
When arriving in Las Vegas, take the following: 2 forms of identification (driver's license, state issued ID card, social security card, ID card, DD214, US passport, naturalization certificate, baptism certificate and wallet of foreign identity)) If you are under 25, a state-issued birth certificate is also required. This is non-negotiable, you will not receive a sheriffs card without it. If you were not born in the United States, you must bring one of the following: Naturalization certificate; US passport, birth certificate in the USA; or foreign ID. Card.
Search for clubs online and make a list of places you would like to work. If you are over 21, you can work at any club in Las Vegas. If you're between 18 and 20, don't despair! You can still work, but you're limited to full nude clubs that don't serve alcohol.
Upon arriving in Las Vegas, you will need to go to any club and obtain a signed proof of referral. You will need this referral receipt to obtain what is called the Las Vegas Sheriff's Card. Basically, it is just an ID card issued by the state to people working in the casino and entertainment industry. The club where you are nominated does not need to be where you plan to work; you just need the paperwork. Just come in and tell them that you are a dancer looking for a job and want a referral note for a sheriff card. They hear this often, and some places even have a package ready to provide all the information. Do not be discouraged if the first club does not provide documentation. Strippers are a dime in Las Vegas, and often the person you ask for the paperwork is too lazy to get up and look for it. Just move on to the next club. Reserve an hour or two if you are not familiar with the city of Las Vegas and where the clubs are located, to drive and obtain this reference bulletin.
Remember that it doesn't matter which club you receive the referral receipt from. You don't have to work there! Once you have the sheriff's card, you can take the test at any club you want. For many years, Cheetah & # 39; s was known to be the easiest club to obtain the referral newsletter. The girl at the door had a pile of them and they distributed hundreds a day. Over time, it became very well known that Cheetah & # 39; s would distribute the reference slips … so that everyone would go there first and never go back to work there! As a result, they stopped distributing references at the door and now you need to speak to a manager.
Take your two forms of identification, birth / naturalization certificate, if necessary, signed proof of appointment and $ 45 to the Digital Printing Department of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. It is in the western suburbs of Mandalay Bay, on Russell Road, between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The address is: 5880 Cameron St Las Vegas, NV (702) 828-3271
Bring a book or magazine and be prepared to wait at least an hour and a half for fingerprints and background checks. If you have pending warrants or an extensive criminal history, your Sheriff's Card will likely be denied. If you pass, you won't have to do this process again for another five years.
Now that you have your work card, you will need a business license. You can obtain your Nevada state business license from the Taxation Department.
The two locations are:
Grant Sawyer Office Building 555 E. Washington Ave Suite 1300 Las Vegas, Nevada
2550 Paseo Verde Suite 180 Henderson, Nevada 89074
You can go to any location. The cost of a commercial license is $ 200 and is valid for one year. You will receive a temporary license that can be used immediately and a permanent copy will be sent to you by mail.
Take your work card and temporary business license to the club you want to work for. Most Las Vegas strip clubs are open 24 hours. The main night time starts at 9 pm, so go to the club at that time to be hired. Since there are so many girls showing up daily to be hired, many of the clubs don't make you change your street clothes to get tested. Instead, they rate you based on how you look in your street clothes, so look sexy! Most clubs have their own dress code rules, and they will tell you what those rules are. Some are dress clubs, others you can wear any costume you want.
The club will make a copy of your business license and want to see your sheriff card. You will need to show your sheriff card every time you show up for work. Some clubs add a barcode sticker on the back of the card, others use fingerprint recognition software to identify you when you join the club. You should also keep a copy of your business license in your purse, just in case. Make sure to renew your commercial license every year. You will receive the paperwork in the mail, reminding you to do so.
Undressing in Las Vegas is a completely different experience than undressing in other metropolitan cities. The supply and demand of this sector is unique in Las Vegas. Since the clubs are bigger and have more employees, it means that you have more bad dancers. It is just the Pareto Principle (80/20 rule) exemplified by larger numbers. It is more difficult to see the effects of this in a club with 20 dancers, but in a club with 250, it is more obvious. That's why you have guys who don't dancers or turn their backs on the trail. It's because in a club with 200 dancers, you have 160 of them who have no idea what to do correctly to make customers want to buy. As a result, you have guys who were harassed by seven or eight "I want to dance" girls before showing up. As a result, they tend to be more demanding and sometimes more distant to find the right girl to spend their money on.
Unlike your home club, you won't be able to choose the music for your scenario. In fact, many artists choose to pay more to NOT have to go on stage. There are different philosophies about why this can be beneficial. In some clubs, there are so many girls that many customers do not attend the stage. For every song that you are on stage, you may be selling a dance. In other clubs, the stage inclination is very good; so it’s worth being in rotation. Use your best judgment.
Many of the clubs publish a convention schedule in the locker room. You can access this schedule online. Some of the biggest conventions of the year are Consumer Electronic Show and The Adult Video Network in January, World of Concrete and MagicOnline in February, March Madness and ConExpo every 3 years in March, NAB in April, ICS in May, Gentlemen & # 39; s Club Expo in August and SEMA in November.
Also, cross-reference hotel rates for higher priced casinos like Bellagio, Wynn and Venetian. Whenever there is an abnormal increase in room rates, it reflects an increase in demand for hotel rooms.
