    I have been working at Treasure Island Casino full-time (more than an year)


    I love dealing with the public. I also love the management. They have had my back consistently because I'm a good employee. Almost every department got raises as of recently, and there are lots of opportunities for advancement. You can win cash, TVs, dinner and a show, gift cards... Just for doing a little bit extra. We are like a family here.


    The hardest part about working here is getting hired. It's tough if you have 5 speeding tickets, but can only remember 3 of them. In order to get a gaming license (which you will need in order to work in ANY department), you must fully disclose any and every citation for anything, including parking tickets, in your entire adult life. I've only had one, so it was easy for me. They do extensive background checks. Several, actually. However, if you fail to disclose every little thing and they find it, you will not pass through the gaming commission. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Office politics are about the same as they are anywhere else. There are a couple funny little rules, but nothing difficult to follow. It's a casino. There is so much cash in that place. The rules are necessary. Suck it up. It's worth it!
