    They work you to death, you have to deal with a lot of customers who are jerks.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCheap food that isn't bad. You get a paycheck. You get decent discounts sometimes. Do have some classes that you can take that may help you with your job.

    ConsVery monotonous job. When you walk in the employee entrance you notice over half the employees are in an awful mood. Probably because of too much workplace politics, and being overworked by management.
    In reality Turning Stone is the revenue center for the Oneida Nation's political activities, although it does provide money for their community and other essential.
    Managers often

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe first day you walk in for training you are told to smile more. Well many of us are in stressful situations and depending on your manager you might be second guessed all the time, adding to the stress, add to this lack of sleep at times, and below average pay. This makes for an awful environment.
    Also leave your employees out of the political battles the Oneida Nation engages in, we simply don't care, and most of us oppose it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The experience at Turning Stone is horrible.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOther than benefits, there are truly none that I personally can speak of.

    ConsThe "business" is run more like a high school and different departments leaders will try to keep employees in that department with false write ups.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some new management who are actual professionals in the area of business and not just people fresh out of college. Raise your standards and I'm sure you could benefit from it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The guest is everything, the employee means nothing.

    Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) Verona, NY

    ProsThe position I was in held a fair hourly wage for the area, however my managers reminded me on a fairly regular basis that "payroll" took too much out of the departments budget, and my hours were taken by lesser paid employees. However, I have found that there is great team effort between employees at the same level.

    ConsLong hours, supervisors forget to give breaks or chose not to (I have waited up to 45 minutes to use the restroom), poor planning and scheduling by management. There is a huge storage issue for each department, supplies could be extremely far away which causes customer service to slow down. Management can be verbally rude and boarding abusive, degrading employees an treating everyone as children. It is near impossible to advance. Most managers and supervisors have a lower education level than most of the people they oversea. Many higher positions are also filled by people from outside the area and state. Interviews are unprofessional and untruthful about actual
    job conditions. Customers can be rude and disrespectful, and also destroy and steal items from the grounds.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are really no pros to working at this place...unless your stuck in the area and are in desperate need of a job.

    ConsThey will promise you everything to get you through the door. Management, especially supervisors of various outlets are awful and very inexperienced. It''s a very negative work environment and employees are just angry all the time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
