Here are 5 tips to get hired at a Vegas Pool Party, well they might not guarantee you a job but they will not hurt you at the audition. Check out the audition dates and times for the pool that you want to work. Then make sure and get to the audition at least an hour before the start time, the best pools will sometimes get a couple of hundred applicants per day and will shut it down to a certain number of people.

“Do not come hung over. Judges know what it looks like when you’ve been out all night and just rolled out of bed five minutes before interviews.” — Courtney Tulp, pool general manager, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

There are some things that you are going to want to think about when you are preparing for your Vegas pool audition. We found an article that was written a couple of years ago with advice from some of the people that are doing the hiring. Below there are some tips on how to land a pool job in Las Vegas.

1. Make a great first impression

“Do look your best. We need to be able to imagine what you will look like in the uniform. Bring your personality. We want to know that you are engaging, and can provide guests with the best time possible.” — Ashley Jinjoe, cocktail supervisor, Encore Beach Club

2Don’t forget the basics

“Fill out applications neatly and completely, display self-confidence, offer a firm handshake and look the interviewer in the eye—but don’t stare him or her down.” — Ian Kohoutek, director of nightlife/daylife, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

4Be qualified

“Pole dancing is not a required skill set, nor is it the same thing as bartending. You’re good looking and people like to stare at you but please do know how to carry an intelligent conversation.” — Thomas Marth, nightlife marketing manager, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

3Accentuate the positive

“Display a sense of humor. Keep comments positive. Don’t smoke or chew gum, even if offered or if the interviewer does so.” — Ian Kohoutek, director of nightlife/daylife, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

5Put down the self-tanner

“Do not overly apply self tanner or bake in a tanning booth for five days straight to make up for the winter months. Men shouldn’t arrive oiled and shiny for their photos, and there is no need to wear sunglasses inside.” — Hing Yip Yim, director of operations, Marquee Dayclub and Tao Beach
