I have been working at Potawatomi Bingo and Casino full-time for more than a yearPros
-- Pay is good considering the job prerequisites
-- They will train you, and generally want you to succeed
-- Interesting work, especially if you are a "people person"
-- Fairly easy job to get if you are a career changer. No one went to school planning to be a casino dealer...
-- You are learning a trade that will get you a job in any place that has a casino. PBC has a good reputation if you are thinking of moving elsewhere.
-- Good opportunities to advance if you stick with it and take the job seriouslyCons
-- Attendance policy is borderline insane. You WILL show up to work unless you are genuinely too sick to stand for 8 hours. This means there is always some bug going around because people are coming in sick and coughing on you.
-- Negative attitude among your coworkers. Lots of them are young and it's either their first job, or a "temp job" while they figure out what they really want to do. They're not planning to stay, their heart is not in it, and they complain. Try not to let it rub off on you.
-- You need to be able to deal with angry guests who are losing money, without losing your cool or getting depressed over it.
-- When you start, you will get 1am-9am or the 8pm-4am shift probably. Lucky people get 5pm-1am. This schedule is not for everyone, and you are stuck with it for at least 6 months.
-- When you are working, you will be BUSY and actually working. There are lots of rules to get used to. It's not really a "con"...it makes sense considering what the job is, but it's a shock if you had a desk job and some significant portion of your time was not actually spent working.Advice to ManagementAdvice
