    Former Employee - Housekeeping

    I worked at Soaring Eagle Casino part-time

    Pros

    Consistent shifts and hours for the most part. Hard work is recognized, remembered, and (unofficially) rewarded.

    Cons

    Way too much gossiping, bickering, jealousy, and just general nosiness among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider PTO for part-time employees a bit sooner into employment; most of your part-timers are part-timers for the simple fact that they have other obligations (such as school or another job), so they're crunched for time and will eventually have to call in for some reason, leaving the rest of the staff short.

    Former Employee - Lifeguard in Mount Pleasant, MI

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

    Pros

    My experience they offered a decent pay, and a lot of hours. Works with college classes, but really nothing else matters to them.

    Cons

    Don't plan on getting promoted if you arn't a native. Also, you are either working with college kids paying they're way through college, or towns people, who usually are poorly educated. Both can be hard workers, but are two completely different types of people who dont always see eye to eye.

    I worked at Soaring Eagle Casino full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area. Good benefit package. Many departments to gain expanded work experience and diversify business practices and relationships.

    Cons

    You'll hit the advancement ceiling within years unless you are a tribal member. Resort run by an ever-changing tribal leadership; only a few of who have true business knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and retain based upon ability, not ethnic background. Equal opportunity and less reverse discrimination.

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

    Pros

    Great money, managers in the restaurants were flexible working with my schedule whether it was for school or personal reasons. Had a lot of fun with co-workers!

    Cons

    Leaving at midnight to be back at 7 AM. Cashing tables out using cashiers-oh the troubles!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's more important? Quality or Quantity?

    I worked at Soaring Eagle Casino full-time

    Pros

    Overall 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.

    Cons

    There 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.

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

    Pros

    Not a one that I can think of. Honestly, nothing at all.

    Cons

    Never 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 ManagementAdvice

    Quit and let them hire GOOD managers!
