    Pros

    Fellow co-workers were great and the chance to meet people from all over was exciting. I was classified as part-time but I normally worked 40 hours per week. On Friday nights, I came in to work early to help with the "Guys Night" rush. It was hectic until about 9 or so but it tapered off about 3 AM. Early mornings were the hardest to try to stay awake. I would recommend everyone try working at a casino at least once. It was a great experience.

    Cons

    Pay was not the greatest and 3rd shift was difficult to get used to. I haven't worked at too many places but the gossip seemed a little excessive to me, maybe it was just my department.

    Advice to Management

    Look for untapped talent in all areas. I would have remained an employee but I received an offer for a higher paying job closer to home.

    Pros

    Good management team at casino.

    Cons

    Too much politics from corporate office. Rules different depending connections. Upper management can lie degrade employees with no consequences.

  3. Excellent Coworkers, benefits dropping, poor upper management

    Pros

    The pay is good when compared to the same job with other companies. Matched 401K plan up to 5%. There are lots of opportunities to learn additional skills to use in the workplace. Advancement opportunities are definitely available for those that apply themselves (though non-natives may have to apply more frequently. The company is not private about native preference, so you know what the score is from day one). The company encourages growth, both personally and professionally. Wonderful, wonderful coworkers!

    Cons

    It is nearly impossible to have a personal/family life unless you have been with the company for 8 years to "earn" the better shifts. No health insurance if you work less than 38 hours a week and most positions are now hiring at 29 hours or less. Upper management does a poor job of communicating expectations to entry level employees. "Motivation" often comes across as browbeating and trying to force human beings to be robots. Many supervisors have not been trained to properly deal with the people under them.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is absolutely terrible among the staff, especially on an entry level. If you want to see your employees step up their game, set the example! More than anything, talk to your people like humans and set realistic expectations. We can't provide a fun, entertaining atmosphere that drives our business with morale being so low.

    Make efforts to help employees grow within the company.

    Pros

    Riverwind Casino, owned by the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma, is a wonderful place to work with amazing benefits. I love my employer.

    Cons

    Smoke, as it is a casino. You must be able to walk a distance to the actual employee entrance, because you must park in the parking lot west of the casino. Nothing horrible.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have too many complaints about Riverwind Casino, but I do wish their uniforms weren't so disgusting. They are hideous.

    Pros

    Decent pay for a job requiring no education. If you like a lot of people then this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of male management always hitting on workers. If you don't like an environment where there are lots of people coming in and out then this is not a good place.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so lazy. Upper management should get a tighter hold on lower management or upper management needs to be replaced.
