Accountant

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Soaring Eagle Casino full-time

ProsOverall the environment is decent and very laid back. There is not a lot of micromanagement as long as you consistently get your work done on time.

ConsThere is minimal room for advancement and growth, and there is a lot of politics that come along with working at this company. The morale at this company is also very low, most of the employees appear to be disgusted with this place.

Worst managers/supervisors on EARTH!

Hostess (Former Employee)
Mount Pleasant, MI

I worked at Soaring Eagle Casino part-time for less than a year

ProsNot a one that I can think of. Honestly, nothing at all.

ConsNever get granted requested time off even when submit weeks in advance, scolded for helping coworkers when the managers were nowhere to be found, forced to work overtime without breaks because coworkers wouldn't show up because the place was absolute hell.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit and let them hire GOOD managers!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good quick money for a driven employee.

Server (Former Employee)
Mount Pleasant, MI

I worked at Soaring Eagle Casino part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood, quick money. It is not an easy serving job, but I could make between $500-$800 in a weekend if the live entertainment was well known. Example, in a five hour lounge shift during a Keith Urban concert I walked out with a little over $500. Also, at the time the casino was the draw so patrons really just wanted to eat and run which kept the tables turning and burning.

ConsWhen it was slow, you made your wage...$3 an hour.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you haven't already, get rid of the point system. It is easily abused and keeps the staff you don't want to keep.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
