    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A family like relationship with coworkers. Flexible with scheduling. PTO.

    Cons

    Below average pay, encouraged to be "team players" and help each other out yet get criticized when you try and do so. Upper management draws a curtain to things that go on. They don't understand nor do they care.

    Little to no chance for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They are the one's dealing with the public. NOT YOU.

    I have been working at Turning Stone part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros – Good team work depending on the department you're in. Usually will work with your schedule. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Benefits for part time employees are slim, including PTO. Rarely get pay raises or incentives even if you have worked there a long time or have good reviews. Required to work weekends and most holidays. Don't offer sick days and will take away PTO days if you call in. Rarely encourages personal growth or doesn't give the means to do so. Not very concerned with the health of their employees or how the job duties affect the health of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    – Offer more incentives to work. Give annual raises. Give sick days and more PTO days.

    I worked at Turning Stone (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a job. They gave us some free perks, like a hotel stay and massages to review. As well as prizes like gas card, pedicure, etc... for winning monthly challenges. Some coworkers were nice, but it was very gossipy.

    Cons

    There have been little to no raises in recent years. It seems like they spent the money on a parade float for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade and the new addition of Exit 33 instead of giving raises to lower level employees (some managers still received raises). A lot of people were upset about that, and the good employees either gave up trying or left.

    There were little opportunities for career advancement.

    The management micromanages and rarely backs you up if a guest has a problem. It seemed like they would rather give the guest anything they want to shut them up than follow the rules the rep had been advising the guest of. Also departments are more than happy to take the word of the guest over other departments and blame the other department. It happened many times where the guest was confused or straight out lied about what they were advised of. They normally got what they wanted even if the reservation was noted to the contrary. Turn over is high. The offices are very small and gossipy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up reps and start doing annual raises again for everyone not just management.

    I have been working at Turning Stone

    Pros

    Get exposure to all types of accounting. Most of finance is friendly. 1 hour paid lunch. Get to work with a wide range of people.

    Cons

    If you don't have a CPA there is no future for you. Long, long hours for salaried employees. 4 managers in less than a year due to turn over. After 10 years might as well start looking for a new job. Manage people that get paid more than me. Constant turn over guaranteed every 6-8 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the people that have given the company 10-20 years of their life. What is the point in working for a company if there is no stability.

    Pros

    Pays slightly more than other jobs in the area, lunch can be cheap

    Cons

    Required political meetings, petty managers, huge gossip mill, getting in and out takes an extra half hour just to get to and from the parking lot, everything that goes with working at a casino

    I worked at Turning Stone

    Pros

    The people are mostly friendly, and everything is fast-paced so the day goes faster.

    Cons

    Too much customer/patron interaction--it will make you DESPISE people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The biggest issue I thought was the extreme limitations employees have inside the casino once employed. I suppose I can understand some of the paranoia about possible rigged gambling--but why not any access to the hotels? That doesn't make sense.
