    Pros

    When there's action going on or a band playing, it can be a lot of fun to people-watch the drunk and stupid, and you can get some nice tips. If you just wanna make some extra money, it's not a terrible place to work.

    Cons

    Dull times when nothing is happening and your watch seems to be broken. Irritating and inebriated people getting in your face. Disgusting gambling addicts.

    Pros

    No players blowing smoke in your face. Potential to move up. Fast paced. Paid breaks. Lots of little drawings, friendly competitions and give aways for the employees.

    Cons

    Zero chance for a decent shift unless you're part time or have been there since they have opened considering its seniority based. Say hello to working every single weekend.

    Pros

    Some coworkers were ok , the one's not stabbings you in the back.

    Cons

    Management is the absolute worst. They promote the idea of "In Fighting" and backstabbing. Massive amount of favoritism. The most unprofessional company I have ever been associated with.

    Advice to Management

    Its hard to believe this company is still in business. Look on this job board they have massive turn over. My advice is to fire all your upper management bring in some seasoned Gaming Professionals who know how to run a casino. I hope you go out of business.

    Pros

    Absolutely loved it, people were great. They gave you plenty of training and always wanted you to try something new. I was a cook work in sports bar, but they allowed me to work at all venues. We definitely have a lot of fun, especially when it's Nascar time. Always doing something company wide. Weight loss, department competitions, lots of fun. Great benefits (for me anyway being young single female)

    Cons

    Points System. You receive points calling in, leave sick/early, and of course being late (but to an extreme, you couldn't be 1 min late, or you got a point). I lost my job because of it. Yet that's also because, not everyone there was great......aka my chef

    Pros

    The money was great (quantity>quality of tips)! We were always busy and there were PLENTY of hours to work.

    Cons

    Management did not view you as a person but as an entity to fill a position. Not flexible with hours. You had to bid on schedules and draw, so you better be lucky.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the Golden Rule!
