    Pros

    Fellow employees, end of year bonus, cheap lunches, good pay.

    Cons

    Bad clientele, horrible management, little opportunity for advancement, favoritism within the department.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism, raise pay to California minimum wage, listen better to employees

    Pros

    Fast paced, always meeting new and fun people, time goes by fast on busy days. Very well structured employee management.

    Cons

    Salaries are not that good for hard work. Mandatory work days, unable to call in sick in those days unless you are in the hospital.

    Pros

    If you get employed I'm sure the benefits are great

    Cons

    Clean up your HR department and the person in charge needs training for her staff they simply don't obviously need any type of degree they handle things very unprofessionally they don't care it's obvious how could you determine someone's fit if your not engaging with them.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the problem in your HR department lack of communication and you waste your time with someone who never even gives you eye contact you go to another person and same questions off a written scripted paper why don't you try to actually get to know the person your in and out in less then 5 minutes of course your going to get a big turnover and Joel who handles the marketing department is sarcastic and all over the place, try recording him and see that you cannot understand one word he says. Never will apply again nor will i recommend this company. Your just a number and pretty soon so will others that work there.

    Pros

    Pechanga is constantly growing and evolving. You can move from department to department if the field you start in is not the one you want. To a point there is also upward mobility. Good benefits and close to home for most, located right off the freeway for others.

    Cons

    The changes can be overwhelming as they are sometimes done without a solid plan. Pay is average compared to San Diego and LA markets.

    Advice to Management

    Continue taking feedback from employees. There are lots of simple improvements gained from just listening.


  7. Great co-workers and management to work with. Huge opportunity to gain experience in some of the latest technology.

    Pros

    Always striving to find ways to improve at a personal, team, and organizational level.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth as most employees are long term. This may be different in other departments, but some do not have a lot of movement so that you can "climb the ladder."

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but look for ways to compensate deserving employees and positions to equal those of similar industries. There are 12 or so departments and some are unique to gaming and some are not, so make sure to compare with like industries.

    Pros

    The only pros I would say are the benefits, and if you work swing shift, the tips are decent.

    Cons

    The supervisors were kind of douschey, the process of getting through the tribal members to be hired was a nightmare.The hourly rate is a JOKE. I am so glad i don't work there anymore.

    Pros

    I enjoy every aspect of my job! Higher-ups are always respectful and willing to listen, Pay is great and benefits are greater!
    Flexible hours and guests are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Only con I would have is the smoke filled work enviorment. But once you get used to it you will be ok.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to do a exceptional job.
