    Pros

    All of the employees are friendly and helpful! Great place to work!

    Cons

    Hiring process is overly cumbersome and multiple trips must be made! It definitely can be streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    With so many open positions, your HR team needs to do a better job or streamlining the process. It should not take 2-3 weeks to start a job once accepted.

    Pros

    Good people that work there that are not in management. A couple in managment are good.

    Cons

    the GM is a dictator and drains the life out of everyone that works for her.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should really look at all the people that come and go through management.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Easy job and great atmosphere. Loved working there. Recommended to anyone who works at night regularly or during the day because the wage won't support you, but it's fun.

    Cons

    Little pay and not enough hours. This job won't support you, but will give you pocket money. The pay is lower than at McDonald's now.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing because of what the job is.

    Pros

    Day to day employees are always great. Really a lot of friendly non salary people who make the job bearable.

    Cons

    We recently had our Aloha spirit meetings again and like last year they were terrible. Our upper management once again looked like they didn't want to be there. They started off by saying that the top two things that are important to the hourly employees are pay and benefits then they proceeded to say they weren't going to talk about it. Our customer service numbers are down and they proceeded to blame us again. They kept saying we need to do better and they want numbers in the 90's but honestly upper management needs to do better. Their approval rating according to the employee survey we took is below 70%. They said they take it personal and don't understand how the number is so low. They are clueless. Maybe if they stop taking benefits from us and give us decent raises. Cost of living raises per year are 10 cents. They took over a weeks vacation time away across most employees. They eliminate positions and give the workload to other employees and hire no replacements. You get hired for one position and have to do several, even if untrained. They also stated if your working here for money, go somewhere else. They also said their now famous statement that if you don't like working here go somewhere else. That does not instill confidence in the employees. They even during the meeting took selfies with the hr representative. SELFIES. Very unprofessional. There is a lot of talk from employees about bringing in the Union since things get worse and worse and upper management clearly has no clue how to treat their workers. The medical benefits are so expensive and they make you get a physical and see a "life coach" and follow a schedule they set out for you for a small "discount." We have single employees here paying more than $150 for mediocre insurance twice a month. We've also have had several carriers in the last few years and have to reapply every year to new changes and less benefits. They are remodeling the casino this year and many believe hours are going to be cut again. They also stated that they will not fix the massive plumbing problems they have. From pool leaks that leak into the casino area to employee dining room leaks that leak into offices to constant leaks in the hotel rooms. They also have knocked down many employees from full time to on call in some departments. Clearly changes need to be made and our upper management need to be replaced. They lower the morale of the environment and employees every time they speak.

    Advice to Management

    I think they best said it themselves, "If you don't like working here, go somewhere else." Seems like they need to follow their own advice.

    Pros

    Corporate cares about each property and employees however the property management does not. Great benefits and promote from within.

    Cons

    Boyd style is not taught at the property level. Property level executives do not follow the essence of Boyd.

    Advice to Management

    Need to evaluate the property executives and see why they don't continue customer service training and Boyd style. They are worrying about pennies and not promoting the property properly. Customer recognizition and growth is lacking
