It's nice to get a steady paycheck from a successful business, but the stress of having no job security is overwhelming.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsDecent benefits
Plenty of work (rare to get less than your scheduled hours)
Nice end of year bonus (at least last year's was)
Tipped positions often pay fairly high, as the casino is very busy
Good company values on paper
Hard-working employees

ConsVery high level of responsibility that does not match pay grade (for non-tipped positions)
Disproportionally high risk of losing job due to minors entering casino floor
Supervisors tend dismiss hard work more often than they praise it
Micromanagement (more than I have seen at any other company I've been a part of)
High amount of negative feedback given to many employees
Reactive environment on many fronts
Very hierarchical culture

Advice to Senior ManagementTry being more proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to decisions that significantly affect your staff. Take EVERYONE's opinions, suggestions, and feelings seriously, not just those that appeal to you. Pay your non-tipped employees more, or set up tip systems for them: people work at casinos to make decent money, not feel like they're being used.

    Pros: you will get flexible schedules, and they are willing to work around… Cons: They will not give you enough hours if you are part time due to excessive hiring Seniority doesn't mean a thing… Advice to Senior Management: Treat your employees fairly, don't just be nice to the new hires… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
