Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Grantville, PA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Grantville, PA

Pros

They pay more than min. wage.
They have free drinks and food.
They give Christmas gifts to all the employees.

Cons

Lack of communication between Upper Management and Lower Management.
Lack of communication between Departments - everyone on different pages.
Lack of appreciation.
Only some positions are first open for the internal employees, giving the workers less of a chance to advance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Without the employees on the floor the casino would completely flop. Customer service is all up to the workers and if they are not treated well then they do not treat the guests well. Keep in mind that the hourly paid workers are very important. Upper management can be on vacation for a week but we can't. A little more credit would be nice.

    Current Employee - Cashier in Charles Town, WV

    Pros

    Helps pay for your college bills up to $2,000 a year.

    Cons

    No free time off, including holidays. Very litttle room for advancement. No recognition for hard work. Bad and unprofessional management. No open door ppolicy allowed without being made to look like a bad employee. Raises come once a year and are not worth your wait. You'll have a better chance of making more in fast food then you would at this particular casino ina year. Customers are extremely rude and management and security never do anything to defend you. You can get pushed and the guest won't be kecked out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a better eye on your management workers in your casino. They are given to much freedom and authority to do as they please and not as the company needs.
