    I worked at Pechanga Resort & Casino part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Always busy, easy to get a lot of hours.

    Cons

    Management, guys that have been there for 12+ years pretty much do whatever they want and get away with it. Inconsistency in standard operating procedures.

    Fellow employees, end of year bonus, cheap lunches, good pay.

    Pros

    Fast paced, always meeting new and fun people, time goes by fast on busy days. Very well structured employee management.

    Cons

    Salaries are not that good for hard work. Mandatory work days, unable to call in sick in those days unless you are in the hospital.

    Pros

    Easy money (low hours, high pay) great coworkers, decent benefits and discounts, getting to drive the occasional Porsche, not much else really the job really sucks

    Cons

    inconsistent and random scheduling, weekends and holidays are mandatory, the casino environment as a whole is just filthy, disgusting and abominable, pay was below minimum wage (Indian Reservation), if it weren't for the tips it would not be worth it

    Advice to Management

    They're actually doing a pretty good job, the industry itself however is a difficult one to be in if you want a good work/life balance


  7. Great co-workers and management to work with. Huge opportunity to gain experience in some of the latest technology.

    Pros

    Always striving to find ways to improve at a personal, team, and organizational level.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth as most employees are long term. This may be different in other departments, but some do not have a lot of movement so that you can "climb the ladder."

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but look for ways to compensate deserving employees and positions to equal those of similar industries. There are 12 or so departments and some are unique to gaming and some are not, so make sure to compare with like industries.

    Pros

    Great company and benefits package. The professional atmosphere is amazing.

    Cons

    Departments are very scattered even though they are part of the same company under the same roof.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring process should be more rigorous to weed out the candidates that are not suitable for the positions being employed

    Pros

    Great benefits and that is all I can literally say about this business, that and atleast you get to go home after being miserable for 8 hours.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment, Extreme favoritism, common practice of fraternizing, wages, employees not free to use the restroom in some departments, Unequal treatment, lack of trust from management. Take it this way folks, if they can be rid of 6 EXTREMELY LOYAL employees who have been employed there for 18 years with perfect attendance and no personal complaints ever filed agaisnt them, then imagine what they would do to you! Fired with false charges amd NO evidence of this so called claim! Also over the course of 18 years, was not offered or even considered for a supervisor position. Oh and not to mention, the wage is slightly above minium wage after 18+ years of Hard work..BEWARE!! 6 EXTREMELY LOYAL AND HARD WORKING SENIOR EMPLOYEES FIRED DUE TO HEARSAY AND ZERO EVIDENCE! BEWARE..i am not the one who was fired, i am a whitness to these 6 amazing people..Good luck to you all!

    They offer great benefits and summer/winter dinners.
