First, make sure you have the proper documentation. The City of Dallas requires that an independent background check be conducted before you are allowed to work. It is not a commercial license and is run by a company called Bio-Verify. If you are a US citizen, please make sure you have 2 forms of identification (driver’s license, state issued ID, social security card, military ID, DD214, US passport, US birth certificate, naturalization certificate, baptismal certificate and card Alien Identification Card) If you were not born in the United States, you must bring one of the following: Certificate of Naturalization; US passport, US birth certificate; Foreigner identification card or international work permit.
Second, find out which club you would like to work for. In Dallas, you must be 18 years old to work in topless clubs that serve alcohol, except at The Lodge, which requires all entertainers to be 21 years old. Topless clubs are open until 2 a.m., nude clubs have extended hours until 5 a.m. Go to that club during the shift you would like to work for. Most clubs in Dallas have specific day, noon, and night shifts. If you go during the day and they hire you for the day shift, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will let you work at night as well.
Once you are hired at a club, you will 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 after dark.
If you have been a Texas resident for a year or more, you will only need to do a Texas background check. If you are a resident of another state, you will have to pay an additional $ 50 for the out-of-state background check. Once Bio Verify performs the background check, you will be given a sealed envelope to take to the club. Please note that this background check is only valid for ONE club. If you decide that you want to work at a different club in Dallas, you will have to repeat the process for EACH club you want to try.
Once you’ve completed your background check, head back to the club and start earning money!
