    I have been working at Tulalip Casino (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Job security and ability for lateral movement. Free parking, There is an employee dining room. Uniforms are provided for a majority of the staff.

    Cons

    No chance for raise. Difficult to advance. Lots of politics. Some jobs have the starting pay at less than minimum wage but sometimes it's the only way to get in.

    Pros

    The benefits are still decent and overtime is offered. The medical coverage is available but the best coverage does cost out of pocket. Vision,medical, dental,vacation and holiday pay is given to full time employees. I enjoy working with my coworkers.

    Cons

    Not easy to advance into management positions and no cost of living increases being given to employees. Very political environment for a company that is suppose to be a business.

    Advice to Management

    Give cost of living raises to the unsalaried staff and make it easier to move into a promotion for the employees who show exemplary performance. Moral is extremely low for a business which hopes for improvement of revenue in the future.

    Pros

    Good starting wage, good benefits, and some great coworkers make working here tolerable. There is even mention of advancement opportunities within organization

    Cons

    Absolutely no merit raises of any kind to go along with 2 cost-of-living increases in 10 years (none in the last five!), no management opportunities for non-tribal, well-qualified individuals, and they ridiculously take earned vacation in place of their lack of sick pay offered for days missed due to illness. Ex. if you are sick three times in a year, say good-bye to 24 of your earned "vacation" hours because they are your penalty for not coming to work while contagious.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the absentee policy, promote based on merit and qualifications, and do more for front-line staff to holistically improve the overall perception of the casino/hotel.

    Pros

    Fellow employees were really great to work with, loved meeting new people. The pay and benefits for this position were excellent.

    Cons

    Some of the management think they are better than you-will do and say anything to make you have a awful day. Change in scheduling and don't inform the employee of it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of what is going on, not only in ur depts. but all depts. If 2 or more employees have the same name make sure you go by their clock-in # and the department that their in so their personal records don't have the wrong info.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, although not free like it used to be. Cheap food in the employee cafeteria. Okay job security.

    Cons

    Extremely strict. No cost of living or performance raises. If you aren't tribal, your starting pay is what you can expect forever. Upper management are good at following policy and citing the handbook, but lack knowledge and wherewithal to effectively operate a restaurant. In fact, it's the supervisors that hold the operation together...way more work, way less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Give your hard workers raises. Pay more competitively. Be consistent with rules. Be present. Don't take credit for your underlings' hard work.

    Pros

    The casino has wonderful people in every position. They offer free educational opportunities for their employees and the health insurance is the best.

    Cons

    Unless you are tribal you will only go so far promotion wise.

    Advice to Management

    Give your staff c.o.l.a.:s, there have only been 3 since the casino opened.

    Pros

    Meeting nice people from all over. Diversity

    Cons

    very poor management with no communication skills, too many people telling you how to do things that seems to be that no one really knows how to do. What's a chain of command? That's a laugh, the chain starts abs stops with no one on either end

    Advice to Management

    Give some direction to management on how management should really run. No one knows "who or how " to run a department. Your given a handbook that no supervisor ever reads or discusses with their employees

    Pros

    I think the benefits are very good compared with many other companies

    Cons

    The political environment here is something you need to ignore or it will get to you

    Advice to Management

    There really isn't management because the tribe runs the casino. It is their sovereign nation so everyone working there should be glad to have a job and stop complaining about the tribal people getting all the good jobs. I'm glad to be an employee there despite the political environment and I plan to work there for many more years
