  1. Ovations Fanfare

    I have been working at Ovations Food Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Concessions workers make great tips and generally have good working hours for supplemental income. Attending numerous events and seeing the attractions on breaks.

    Cons

    Office employees get the brunt of the work and are shafted when it comes to being tipped out (at least in the operation that I work). Very long hours for most of the employees and constantly under scrutiny.

    Advice to Management

    Give more flexibility to the office staff and give incentives for their hard work. The excuse of "we pay you more than them" doesn't hold up when the amount of money that the other employees are making in comparison is easily double the income of an office worker for the same event.

    Pros

    Sorry...can't think of any. From the start, you are not made to feel welcomed and the upper management from Florida are very unprofessional.

    Cons

    Unprofessional environment. They hire unqualified managers as I would expect as the salaries are not up to par with similar companies. They make lots of promises going in and then start taking away everything promised to cut cost and try to balance budgets on the bad contracts made by VPs in Florida.

    Advice to Management

    None...they are not deserving of advice.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Ovations is the company culture. All the staff were extremely friendly and professional. I was able to work for Ovations at multiple companies so there was always an opportunity to work.

    Cons

    My schedule would vary from working days to also working nights so it was hard to balance that at first.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to rotate shifts between all qualified employees.


  11. I wouldn't work here if they paid double what I made when I left.

    Pros

    Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing

    Cons

    This company thinks they are doing you a favor letting you work for them. If only the gila River tribe knew how badly they treat their employees. Ovations is making them money so they don't care. I thought your casinos were there to provide good employment opportunities for your people gRlic??!!

    Advice to Management

    They don't care what anyone has to say. Ovations and all the casino execs know it all and don't care about the ones who bust their butt for them. Steer clear!
