Upfront great pay and benefits but don't expect respect or any advancement opportunities.

I have been working at Skagit Valley Casino

Pros

Great pay and benefits. My pay as compared to others in the field is about 2 dollars more per hour.

Cons

Management promotes the kiss ups and people they like. If you want to transfer you probably won't be able to even if you are qualified for the position. Managers don't post the schedules until Thursdays every week so don't even try to have a personal life while working here. And if you celebrate a holiday you will probably will have to work on it but if you don't you might get the day off. But managers aren't subject to this rule. My manager has only worked one holiday in the time I've been there and still get Saturdays and Sundays off and every other Friday off as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote the people who actually have the education and leadership skills necessary for the job and realize the some people work outside their job description to gte things done because there aren't enough people who actually WORK there,

    Pros

    It is a job. For full-time employees benefits are free, good gas discount, etc

    Cons

    If you choose to apply at The Skagit and you are offered a position, just be sure that you see the paperwork that tells your status (full-time, part-time, etc) otherwise you may find yourself working full time hours and being told you are a full-time employee for months on end and then SURPRISE 20 hours a week at most and your free benefits they brag about in orientation? Nope, sorry, those are reserved for the full-time employees... The ones who leave early every day and just ride the initial status they were given when they got hired on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop employee abuse of benefits. If an employee chooses to leave early every single day, drop their status accordingly so there is enough hours and room for those who want to be there and need the money, especially in food and beverage.

    I worked at Skagit Valley Casino full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    What pros? Before casino management switched the rewards program around this was a great place to work. Some of the f&b managers are great though and coworkers were great as well.

    Cons

    Ha where to begin. The business is dying because casino management is greedy and completely screwed their faithful customers. When business started heading down hill they went right at the throat of employees, saying bartenders are overpouring and losing the profitability of our liquor sales, saying employees in the rest of the F&B department are not following any procedures as far as food safety (not true) and yadda yadda yadda. They cant admit that they screwed themselves over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck on your job hunt. The way your new rewards program is going, raising prices for everything, rationing liquor, everything is digging your professional graves. Restore the old programs and quit blaming employees for everything and you mayyyyy make it.
