First, make sure you have the proper documentation. The City of Dallas requires an independent background check to be performed before you are allowed to work. It is not a business license, and it is performed by a company called Bio-Verify. If you are an American Citizen, be sure to have 2 forms of Identification (driver’s license, state issued I.D., social security card, military I.D., DD214, U.S. passport, US birth certificate, naturalization certificate, baptismal certificate, and Alien I.D. card )If you were not born in the United States, then you must bring one of the following: Naturalization Certificate; U.S. Passport, U.S. birth certificate; Alien I.D. Card, or international work permit.
Second, figure out which club you would like to work at. In Dallas you must be 18 to work at topless clubs that serve alcohol, except for The Lodge which requires all entertainers to be 21. Topless clubs are open until 2 am, nude clubs have extended hours until 5 am. Go to that club during the shift you would like to work. Most clubs in Dallas have specific day, mid, and night shifts. If you go during the daytime and get hired for day shift, that does not necessarily mean that they will let you work at night also.
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. Even though it is open after normal business hours, I suggest you complete this process during the daytime. The Manana Rd office is not a very safe place for a young woman to be after dark.
If you have been a a Texas resident for a year or more you will only have to do a Texas background check. if you are an out of state resident, 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 at a different club in Dallas, you will have to repeat the process for EVERY club you wish to try.
Once you have completed your background checks, return to the club and start making money!
