    I have been working at Station Casinos part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The team members are really nice to work with. If you have a questions you can actually go and ask anybody and if they can they will help you out.
    The manager is never pushing you to do anything. As long as you have everything you are supposed to do they will never be after you.

    Cons

    Ok here. They tell you you will get in as an on call member and tell you you will get at least 24 to 30 hours a week for sure. Thats a lie they only give you 10 hrs a week. In order for you to become a part/full time you need to pray all the gods you know that the person you are giving days off resign or get kicked out of the company. Or get a management position but that one is really difficult.
    The training never ends. The person is training you suddenly become your boss and tries to bother you with anything.
    Also when you are an on call worker you have to call them for work. And if you dont they will scream at you. But if it is your day off they dont care they just call you to go to work asap. They dont care if you are in another city or anything. If it is your day off and they call you you have to be there. If you dont they will give you a write up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please open full time positions. We dont live out of two days a week.

    Stay far away from IT and CIO

    I have been working at Station Casinos

    Pros

    No pros any longer. Increased salaries after 50+ people left in 2 year span because of incompetent CIO

    Cons

    CFO knows risks and challenges but chooses to look the other way rather than get rid of the problem. Station Casinos IT is a laughing stock because CIO can't keep his lies straight and get his ego in check

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. You already met with 15+ people in IT that all trashed CIO and no change was made.

    Former Employee - Property I T in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at Station Casinos as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the team members there are good to work with. They are understanding when it will take time to get somersetting up and running from the I.T., some of the directors are great to work near others not so much depending on the property. We could all joke with each other and not take offense to any of it.. There are great people from other departments out there as well.

    Cons

    Management is not the best at all in this company. They say they are there to help you, but they really are not there to assist you in any way. When there is something you might not have seen before and you ask them for help and what to do about it. At that point its like squeezing blood from a stone. Management for the IT department tells you one thing then come to find out its another. Also several last minute destinations as well would happen. And when I mean last minute, if you are off at 4:00PM or 9:00PM, you will get a call at 3:58PM or even 8:58:PM. I dont mind over time, but sometimes its something that QA may have messed with and we have to take down a whole department.

    TRAINING
    When I first got there the lead tech did not really want to show me things at times, then that person became ill, I taught myself most of the things needed. So he was out for a week. I would try and use their KB that they set up, however some of the articles are very old and would not apply. There are some great people to train with, but they work opposite of your schedule which does not help. The managers set this up, there are pros and cons to that as well. But if someone is going to train you to do your job the way that cooperate wants you to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to practice what they preach and not sit be hind a desk all the time. Better explanations of what is going on as well. If a person you think is struggling with something, step up and help. Quite bouncing techs that need to be on the property, and be on site instead.

    Pros

    Not really anything any longer. It has changed dramatically

    Cons

    CIO is not a leader. CIO is not a gaming industry executive. Before joining IT, please ask current employees, former employees and vendors about the lack of leadership, direction and empty/broken promises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a change before everyone leaves.
