    Pros

    The management wants to be progressive but lacks direction

    Cons

    Workplace is somewhat hostile at times and they seem to have a very high turn over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent in direction and build your team instead of pitting them against each other and management

    I worked at Affinity Gaming full-time

    Pros

    There were some very smart people working for this company. I enjoyed coming to work each day.

    Cons

    The changes in personnel by terminations and transfers were bad enough, but throw in the proxy battles at the Board level and management changes and you have complete disruption of your corporate structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Affinity Gaming full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Has the potential to be a good place to work. The employees are great and fun and become your family, but management makes it hard to have a positive attitude and to enjoy coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    Not a supportive environment, it is hard to go to management for help or with concerns and be taken seriously. Management tries to show their appreciation for employees but it is easy to see they really only care about the money side of things.To them, employees are replaceable and you don't ever feel secure in your position. Upper management continues to get raises while telling bottom line employees that their raises are coming but have been pushed back because there currently isn't enough money for increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to support your employees and help them grow. Many times, help will be seeked with no response and then you will later be counseled for doing it wrong.

    I worked at Affinity Gaming full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, food discounts, meet interesting people. The fun of giving away the companies money to winners (and getting tipped as a result)

    Cons

    bad hours, even if you move up the hours still stink, very smokey environment, taking people's money was not always fun, seeing people spend money that you know they needed for other things was challenging at times

    I worked at Affinity Gaming part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Its a job that will keep you busy moving around and the time goes by pretty quick and you will get your exercise in walking

    Cons

    Low pay ($10) and a revolving door of people coming and going and the people that are working there are "Bottom of the Barrel that cant get jobs anywhere else because they are grossly overweight or have tatoos all over their face and neck. Also this is a small off strip "B-Level" casino and the smoke level gets really bad and you go home smelling like cigarette smoke and the EDR food is an abomination. Worst food out of any Casino I have ever worked for. Avoid this place like the plague it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care so much about your employees, then pay them a decent living wage instead of running the revolving door operation of people coming and finding better employment. And Leave the employees alone and cut the crap wasting every ones time with the stupid group cheerleading meeting crap, nobody cares about it, they just want to do their shift, go home and look for better employment.
