I have been working at Great Canadian Gaming full-time (More than 3 years)
Co-workers and mid-level managers/directors are awesome and great to work with. Flexible working hours if needed. OK work/life balance. Culture for the most part is fun and laid back.
Company is as cheap as can possibly be when it comes to their own employees. Little to no compensation increases in the last three years except for executives and upper management, despite solid revenue increases and opening/buying new casinos. CEO only cares about bottom line and shareholder dividends. Almost zero perks and company events for employees. General employment strategy of overwork and underpay until the employee gets fed up and quits, then they re-hire and rinse/repeat. Lots of 'talk' and promises of change and improvements but nothing ever happens - usually squashed by the higher ups. Too much carrot dangling. Depressing environment once you work there for a while and realize how little the company cares about you.
Advice to Management
A little bit more caring about the employees who actually run your business and a little less lining your own pockets with bonuses and salary increases.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Great Canadian Gaming (Coquitlam, BC (Canada)) in November 2014.
Interview process was relatively smooth. Interview was done with a panel of 3 people which were an HR Coordinator, Controller, and General Manager. The interview questions were a good mix of behavioral and technical. The questions were very scripted, felt as if the interview was very robotic and one way. Each interviewer had 3 pages of questions to ask and seemed like they didn't understand the questions themselves. Would recommend the interview panel do more practice interviews or have a customized list of questions. Would also suggest to not stick too closely to the scripted questions as the interview felt too one-way.
