20. Gaming Manager
While many call the job of a gaming manager “a glorified security guard,” it’s much more complex and demanding. A gaming manager is in charge of the overall functioning of a gaming casino. While they do work as a security guard sometimes, their work isn’t just limited to monitoring if customers are cheating. They are responsible for everything that goes on in a casino, including the supervision and specialization of other personnel and the overall efficiency of a licensed gaming facility.
With an average median pay of around $84,000, a gaming manager can easily switch positions and earn six figures if he or she proves to be worthy. You will, however, be doing an arduous job that requires a stern mindset with excellent observational capabilities. Many casino owners tend to reward their gaming managers if they manage to uncover a fault in the system or catch someone cheating. Education is not needed – gaming managers have to have a small amount of experience in overall management, but their skills are valued more than previous work.
