First, make sure you have the right documentation. The City of Dallas requires an independent background check to be conducted before you are allowed to work. It is not a business license, and is performed by a company called Bio-Verify. If you are an American Citizen, make sure you have 2 types of ID (driver’s license, state issued ID, social security card, military ID, DD214, US passport, US birth certificate, naturalization certificate, baptismal certificate, and alien ID card) If you were not born in the United States, then you must bring one of the following: Naturalization Certificate; US passport, US birth certificate; Alien ID, or international work permit.
Secondly, figure out which club you would like to work for. In Dallas you must be 18 years old to work in non-alcoholic alcohol-free clubs, except The Lodge which requires all entertainers to be 21. Top-notch clubs are open until 2 am , nude clubs have extended hours until 5 am. Go to that club during the shift you want to work. Most clubs in Dallas have specific day, mid and night shifts. If you go during the day and are employed for a day shift, that does not necessarily mean that they will let you work at night as well.
Once you are hired at a club, you pay the club $ 50 for your referral to Bio Verify. This is an independent agency, not a government office. Although it is open after normal business hours, I suggest that you complete this process during the day. The Manana Rd office is not a very safe place for a young woman to be at night.
If you have been living in Texas for a year or more, you will only need to do a Texas background check. if you live out of state, you will have to pay an additional $ 50 for the out-of-state background check. Once Bio Verify runs the background check, they will give you one sealed envelope to take back to the club. Keep in mind that this background check is only good for ONE club. If you decide that you want to work in a different club in Dallas, you will have to repeat the process for ALL clubs you want to try.
Once you have completed your background checks, come back to the club and start making money!
