The Job is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti from the Malibu Club in Vice Point, Vice City as an asset mission.


Following the completion of the previous three missions for the Malibu Club, involving planning a bank robbery, Tommy Vercetti and his three man bank job crew prepare for the robbery of the El Banco Corrupto Grande bank in Little Havana. Prior to the mission the four people involved in the robbery, along with Ken Rosenberg discuss the robbery. Despite having a specialised driver, Tommy drives the team to the bank in a Taxi. During the robbery, Hilary King is instructed to continue to drive around the block in order not to attract attention, and team change into green jumpsuits with hockey masks, and head inside the bank. Phil is instructed to keep an eye on all of the civilians. Tommy, and Cam head upstairs to the bank's vault while killing security guards. After having difficulty opening the vault, Tommy moves to the manager's office, and holding him at gunpoint, forces him to help open the vault. Tommy then checks on Phil, only to find a civilian being shot by Phil for activating an alarm. The team are then forced to fend off members of the Vice City SWAT. After the vault is opened, the team collect the money, and after killing more SWAT agents, head outside. Hilary arrives in the Taxi to transport the team, but is quickly gunned down by a SWAT agent after trying to distract them to give time for Tommy and Phil to get in the car. The remaining SWAT are killed by the team, Tommy drives the team to the nearby Pay 'n' Spray in order to lose the wanted level, and then to Cam's Can Openers to complete the mission.


Tommy Vercetti: As you can see, gentlemen, this is going to be the easiest buck we ever made.

Ken Rosenberg: Tommy, seriously, you gotta consider going into law.

Phil Cassidy: What the hell are you smoking, man? This ain't no simple plan! Well, who needs a simple plan anyway? Take communism, now that was a simple plan. Didn't do Russia any favors, huh?

Tommy Vercetti: Calm down, all right? With a team like this it's going to be no problem. We got Cam on safe. Phil? You and me will handle security, and Hilary'll drive the getaway car.

Ken Rosenberg: Uh, heh heh, aren't you forgetting somebody? Somebody who helped you to no end in this town? Somebody who...

Tommy Vercetti: Ken... Ken, that's right. Ken here, he washes the money for us and he keeps the drinks on ice.


Hilary King: I don't understand what I am supposed to be doing here.

Tommy Vercetti: Look, it's easy. Haven't you ever seen a movie? We walk into the bank, we wave the gun around, and leave very rich men.

(Outside Malibu Club)

Tommy Vercetti: I'll drive.

Hilary King: Great. A passenger. Wait 'til I tell the group about this.

(Tommy drives the team to the bank)

Cam Jones: Tommy, Hilary's taking up too much room!

Hilary King: I am not!

Cam Jones: Are too!

Tommy Vercetti: Hey, shut up you two, or you can get out and walk.

Cam Jones: Yeah - HILARY.

(After driving a while)

Tommy Vercetti: For god's sake, Phil, stop waving that thing around!

(If Tommy damages the car too much)

Hilary King: The car's ruined. RUINED!

Cam Jones: You cling to an illusion of permanence.

Hilary King: What?

Cam Jones: You think all things will last. Youth, loved ones, pizza, all will pass or end and you must accept that.

Hilary King: You're right. Thanks Cam.

Cam Jones: Don't mention it.

(If Tommy gets out of the taxi before reaching the bank)

Hilary King: Hey Tommy, why have we stopped?

(The team arrives at the El Banco Corrupto Grande.)

Tommy Vercetti: Keep driving around the block, OK?

Hilary King: Okay, Tommy, okay.

(Hilary drives away. The team goes to the bushes beside the bank and changes outfits.)

Tommy Vercetti: Ok, guys. Nice and easy just as we planned.

(The team raids the bank.)

Tommy Vercetti: THIS IS A RAID! NOBODY MOVE! EVERYBODY UP AGAINST THAT WALL! Phil, hold down the fort!

Phil Cassidy: Wilco roger that!

Tommy Vercetti: Come on, Cam. The vault's upstairs...

(Tommy and Cam head upstairs to the vault. Cam examines the vault.)

Cam Jones: Damn! It's a Flange 9000! This could take hours to crack. Or five minutes if you can find the manager.

Tommy Vercetti: I'll go see where he's holed up.

(Tommy heads downstairs.)

Tommy Vercetti: Phil, things still sweet?

Phil Cassidy: Sure. Everything's reeaal quiet.

(Tommy arrives at the manager's office.)

Tommy Vercetti: You - you're coming with me.

Manager: Ok! Ok! Just don't shoot!

(Tommy approaches the elevator.)


(Tommy takes the manager to the vault.)

Manager: It's on a time lock, You might as well give up now!

Cam Jones: Hell, I can bypass the time lock, Then we just need your key code and we're good!

Tommy Vercetti: Stay here. Try to do anything and you're dead. I'll go check on Phil, I'll be right back.

(Tommy heads back up but suddenly the alarm goes off.)

Phil Cassidy: I told you not to touch that alarm! The SWAT team will be here any minute! I could do with some help here, Tommy!

SWAT (voice): Vice City S.W.A.T! You are completely surrounded!

Phil Cassidy: Surrounded? HA HA HA HAAAAAaaa! They're crapping themselves, corrupt bastards!

Cam Jones: Tommy! The vault's open.

Tommy Vercetti: OK. We got SWAT retirement funds. Let's get out of here!

SWAT (voice): Okay! You asked for it! You got your last chance!

Phil Cassidy: They're storming the place! Take cover!

(Phil and Tommy kill all the attacking SWAT)

Phil Cassidy: That's the last of them. GO! GO! GO!

(Outside the bank, if Cam died.)

Phil Cassidy: Where's Cam?

Tommy Vercetti: History...

Phil Cassidy: Shit! Where's Hilary? I'll give him abandonment issues!

(Outside the bank.)

Phil Cassidy: Shit! Where's Hilary? I'll give him abandonment issues!

(Hilary arrives in the taxi.)

Hilary King: Hey guys! Get in! I got you covered!

(The SWAT kills Hilary. Tommy, Phil and Cam head back to Cam's Can Openers.)

Phil Cassidy: We made it! We're rich! RICH!!

Mercedes Cortez: Tommy, would you like a massage?

Tommy Vercetti: Oh, hi there Mercedes. Yeah, I'm feeling a little tense.

Kent Paul: What'd I tell you Tommy? What'd I tell you? Bent SWAT better watch out when Kent Paul is in town! Come on, gimme a bigger slice, mate, c'mon. I gotta get some new threads.

(If Cam got killed.)

Phil Cassidy: We made it! We're rich! RICH!

Tommy Vercetti: Shame Cam didn't make it, he was a good guy!

Phil Cassidy: Yeah.

Tommy Vercetti: Still... more for us!

Phil Cassidy: Damned straight! YEEEEHAAAH!

Mercedes Cortez: Tommy, would you like a massage?

Tommy Vercetti: Well, Hi there, Mercedes! Yeah, I'm a little tense...

Kent Paul: What'd I tell you Tommy? What'd I tell you? Bent SWAT better watch out when Kent Paul is in town. Come on, gimme a bigger slice, mate, c'mon. I gotta get some new threads.


The reward for completion of the mission is $50,000. The Bank Job Outfit and the Gun Runner mission are unlocked.


  • The song heard during the opening cutscene is Freaks Come Out at Night by Whodini. It wasn't featured on any radio station in GTA Vice City, but is featured on Fresh FM in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
  • If the player kills the man who triggers the alarm then another bystander takes his place. If both are killed, the hostages begin to riot, run around and attack Tommy and Phil.
  • The person who activated the alarm is a Patrol Invest Group security guard, as is the person who activates the alarm when the previous PIG is killed.
  • If the player gets to the ground floor fast enough, Phil Cassidy can be seen shooting and killing the PIG who activated the alarm.
  • Tommy Vercetti mentions the SWAT retirement fund in the mission. Deleted phone call dialogue shows that Kent Paul informed him of this.[1]
  • The bank can be entered after completing this mission. However, if the player attempts to go to the upstairs banking offices, security room, and/or the elevator room, they will immediately trigger the alarm and receive a 4-star wanted level. $1,000 can be found in the manager's office, and the elevator leading to the vault is closed. Also, the player cannot use the security room.
  • This mission is the only time in GTA Vice City that the player can enter the bank vault. Also, it is the only time that the player can use the security room.
  • The player can see the bank vault through the floor of the elevator room.
  • If Cam Jones is killed, the mission dialogue will change. Dialogue between Phil and Tommy suggests that they receive a larger share of the money due to Cam's death, but the reward for completing the mission will always be $50,000, regardless of whether Cam dies or survives.
  • When the cutscene outside after the robbery begins, if the player enters the "blow up cars" cheat, the Enforcers will explode and kill all of the officers, but Hilary still pulls up in the Taxi. Since there are no officers to kill him, he will just drop dead.
  • The seating order in the Taxi on the way to the bank seems to be scripted. Regardless of what door everyone goes in, Tommy will be driving, Hilary will be passenger, Phil will be behind Tommy and Cam behind Hilary. This creates confusion as the dialogue between Cam and Hilary will make no sense.
  • What is also peculiar is if Tommy exits the car on the way to the bank, the game will prompt him to get back in. However, when the player gets back in the car, Phil, Hilary, and Cam will get out of the car.
  • When Hilary is ordered to drive the taxi, upon him entering the taxi, the doors will automatically lock, meaning Tommy cannot hijack the taxi.
  • If the player resprays the taxi and drives past a SWAT agent, the SWAT agent will shoot at the taxi like a hostile gangster. Attacking them while having a wanted level will cause the police radio chatter to call out the same 10-codes as used for crimes on civilians.
  • Just before Hilary drives away in the taxi, the boot opens up for no apparent reason.
  • Regardless of the outfit worn before completing the mission, Tommy will emerge wearing the Soiree Outfit.
  • It is possible to make Hilary kill Cam or Phil prior to entering the bank. The player only needs to run in front of or past the front of the taxi. If timed successfully, Hilary will run over Phil or Cam. However, this results in mission failure.
  • This mission is very similar to the Three Leaf Clover mission in GTA IV, as both missions involve a four-man team (which includes the main character) robbing a bank and one of the team members dying in the process. Furthermore, if the player fails to eliminate the PIGs on the second floor of the El Banco Corrupto Grande quickly enough, they will kill Cam, leading to mission failure. Similarly, in Three Leaf Clover, if Niko Bellic takes too long targeting the two police officers in the subway, then the police officers will kill one of his accomplices, leading to mission failure.

  1. From american.gxt:
    On the phone
    Kent Paul: Hey there Tommy, you're gonna love me mate. A little birdy told me that Vice City SWAT Division has a deposit box at a certain rather large banking establishment, where they keep all the bribes they've taken over the years, like some kind of old boys' retirement fund. Of course, if this information should ever help you acquire any of that cash, I guess you'd feel obliged to push some of it my way?
    Tommy Vercetti: I'll bear that in mind, thanks Kent.
