Indiana’s New Terre Haute Casino Posts Job Openings, Begins Interviews

Posted on August 18, 2023

Upwards of 500 new jobs will become available for the soon-to-come Terre Haute Casino. It plans to open its doors early in 2024 and has begun interviews, looking to fill hundreds of positions, including:

  • Dealers
  • Management
  • Security
  • Food and beverage
  • Housekeeping

The newest addition to Indiana casino offerings recently added management positions to its job board, and its dealer school has been open for enrollment since June 23. More jobs will come on the market this fall.

Dealers get paid to train, plus $500 sign-on bonus

Upon opening, Terre Haute Casino guarantees all table games dealers will earn at least $22 per hour, including tips. 

Furthermore, the casino is providing $16 per hour paid training during its dealer school and will award all qualifying employees a $500 sign-on bonus. The qualifying conditions usually require employees to stay with the company for at least 90 days and remain in good standing.

Dealers will also receive comprehensive benefits packages, short-term and long-term disability plans, paid time off, discounts and more.

Local outlet WTHI News reported the first dealer school will begin in October. All prospective dealers must be in good standing with and eligible to acquire licensing from the Indiana Gaming Commission.

Other open positions currently include:

  • Director of Facilities
  • Marketing Manager
  • Poker Room Manager
  • Slot Technical Manager
  • Surveillance Shift Manager
  • Security Shift Manager
  • Internal Audit Manager
  • Financial Controller

THC does not list compensation for these roles, but Zip Recruiter estimated the rate of a security shift manager at between $16.75 to $19.50 hourly. Given the guaranteed dealer pay, we expect all roles to receive competitive compensation.

More casino jobs coming this fall

The $290 million Terre Haute Casino project includes a 56,000-square-foot gaming floor, a 122-room luxury hotel, five restaurants and six bars.

With full resort amenities, THC will need to bring team members on board in areas beyond gaming. More details will come in the next few months, and jobs in food and beverage, hospitality and security should start opening as early as October.

Terre Haute Casino still on pace for an on-time arrival

Recent reports show footage of the Terre Haute Casino’s building fully enclosed, with construction continuing inside. THC General Manager Mike Rich told PlayIndiana at the end of May: 

“The casino is still scheduled to be open at the end of the first quarter of 2024.” 

That projection remains on track, more or less. The scheduled opening date has yet to be set but will happen in late March or early April.
