    Pros

    Great team members
    Good Benefits
    Fun Workplace
    Events for TM's families and Christmas Parties

    Cons

    Below Average pay
    Corporate manages to save face, not to run a company
    HR doesn't follow their own policies and procedures
    No Raises
    Crappy break room food
    No floaters for Salary management, even though most put in 12 hours a day.
    No sick days for TMs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The TM's on the property make your money. Bring back raises, the cost of living has gone up, and we just recently got a raise which was an insulting amount. Need to seriously consider fixing some of properties up after spending 50 million on GVR and Red Rock. Most properties need alot of up keep.

    Pros

    Benefits, pretty set schedule. Transferring and moving up is easy enough. Community within the Individual casino that I work for is awesome.

    Cons

    Hilariously understaffed and stretched workforce. Job Coaches are not held accountable for their quality of training so others have to pick up the slack that they get paid for. Departments with no supervisor have supervisor duties being handled by under qualified team members with no extra pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about your job coaching practices and get supervisors for EVERY department and shift. When someone falls completely on their face in the first ninety days because they weren't shown how to do something you should really determine why they didn't know it. I do not get paid for job coaching, I do not get paid to be a supervisor, I am not a babysitter. I don't mind helping out once in a while, but not when it detracts from my work. My job comes first.

    I have been working at Station Casinos full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Station Casinos knows how to retain employees. However, a lot of people feel like they're stuck with this company forever. With that said, working with my coworkers for such a long time makes coming to work feel like hanging out with family; good, bad, and ugly.

    Cons

    Competitive time off and flexibility, in the most minimal way. Full-time medical benefits are above average. The company's biggest competitor is a local union in the area, and Station Casinos stays competitive to keep the union out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It takes a long time for an employee to accrue adequate time off.

    I have been working at Station Casinos full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My coworkers and supervisors are helpful, and we all work together well; flexible shift hours if needed; great insurance plans with dental, vision, and life ins; paid lunches; casual uniforms (usually we get to wear promotional tee-shirts); energetic atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very understaffed, huge turnover; sometimes only 1/2hr lunch break in an 8hr time frame if busy; standing 7-7 1/2hrs per day can be tiresome; certain computer programs constantly crashing/freezing/not loading - stressful and inconvenient; two line formations (one for chips and the other for check cashing) but not marked clearly, causing arguments between patrons, especially if there is only one cashier working at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, please! It is almost impossible for one person to do the work of three, and totally impossible for that one person to stay focused on the task at hand, when unfinished paperwork (time sensitive) and other tasks have yet to be completed. This leaves more room for error. Being on constant overload is a recipe for failure.

    I have been working at Station Casinos part-time (less than a 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 a 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.
