    I worked at Valley View Casino

    Pros

    They have a great benefits package and pay range. You get to see a lot of events and mingle with the guests.

    Cons

    They expect long hours from their employees and while you get to see a lot of events, it is usually because you are working them.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and pay. A lot of potential for growth. Very nice atmosphere and the people you work with are easy going and friendly

    Cons

    Exposed to second hand smoke. There is a non-smoking section but you are not always assigned to the same area of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, I know if I had the opportunity I would definitely return to work there in a heart beat.

    Former Employee - Table Games Dealer in Valley Center, CA

    I worked at Valley View Casino part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice management and property, very good food for the employees and free, nice co-workers, it's a teaching casino where supervisors help you become better at your job

    Cons

    low pay for tipped employees due to clientele, part time employees often get "forced out" early, more inconvenient location than surrounding casinos, takes a long time to become full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take better care of part time employees if you want to keep them by limiting force outs, making transition to full time a quicker process, and certainly not moving people from full to part time when avoidable.

    I worked at Valley View Casino

    Pros

    Free lunch.
    Open 24 hours a day, so many shift available.
    Company rewards for 1, 3, 5, 10 years of service.
    Referral program to make extra $$$

    Cons

    Smoke-filled environment (like all casinos)
    Opening 24 hours a day, so you may have to work grave.
    Can be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to try to improve the air filtration system so that the air was a little bit cleaner.

    I worked at Valley View Casino full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They know how to hire great people. Most of the people you run into are friendly, hard working, easy to get along with. They have good benefits and the employees have their own dining room, kitchen staff and chef. Plus you are fed for free.

    Cons

    There is no giving notice. If you decide to quit, and tell them, they want you gone immediately. Management says there are there to listen to concerns and make things better but often it seemed they were more interested in not making a fuss and catering to favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who know what they are doing and stop the nepotism.

    Free Meals.
    Great Coworkers.
    Great internal training programs
    Security personnel is professional and helpful to employees and customers.
    Beautiful location and views of the mountains and valleys.
    Good bonus structure for salaried employees.

    Cons

    Favoritism and nepotism run rampant.
    Very unprofessional gaming commission.
    Inconsistent with disciplinary procedures.
    Not held accountable by federal agencies that assist employees.
    Tribal members do not have to follow the same rules as other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is uneducated and lacks good judgement. Management is formed of cliques and tribal members with no education or training skills.
