    Pros

    I'm speaking from the position of a dealer. Guaranteed hours as long as you're capable at your job, you can also pick up more shifts if you desire. Tips are pooled together and sent in September later, but they're nice. Depending on which game you deal there is varying degree of support within your own pit, but the support from the casino itself is not bad so there's no need to worry too much about customers that are too difficult to handle. There is also a food stand you can grab dinner at if that helps. Considering it's a position for a very short period there isn't too much by way of excellent perks or anything, but the pay is alright. The best perk is the guaranteed hours.

    Cons

    If you want really good hours, it's best to work the night shift which can be a pretty big downside for some people since the casino is open until 6am. Drunk angry customers who lose too much money are a pretty bad downside as well. Also slightly dirty considering the customer-base. The training and licensing needs to be paid for which is about $300 (??) at the very beginning, but the training is free after the first yer and you pay a substantially lowered fee to renew your license from the alcohol and gaming board. There's not terribly much chance of promotion? You can possibly work your way up to dualrate or pit boss, but that's about... it??

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    You get paid breaks
    Free Access to the CNE

    Cons

    You might not be well trained for the job (Depends on who your trainer is)
    You might not get day shifts as nights are often more busy and most shifts are around that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better trainers, listen to the actual staff when deciding who to make a trainer
    Please hire enough staff

    It's all right.

    Pros

    Depending on your job, there could be different pros. Some dealers get paid more than others. Some positions include paid breaks. Security gets a $1 wage hike every year they return. Everyone but security gets a portion of the tips earned at the end of the year, based on the number of hours worked.

    Cons

    Hours can be quite bad, especially for the night shift, so don't expect much of a social life if you're working nights. Some areas are not air conditioned, which can be terrible for those who don't deal well in the heat.
