    Pros

    Decent pay for no experience

    Cons

    Winstar will slowly such the soul out of you. Every negative review on here is totally correct.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. Management is clueless as to how a company should be run.

    Pros

    Working at Winstar you have the opportunity for movement. Growing in this company is easily done. Those in management are usually competent.

    Cons

    The customers are near impossible to work with. The stress that is put on the employee is more harsh than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Consider doing more in-depth training on the Actual customer service experience. Also the handling of many aspects of more situations.

    Pros

    The best thing about WinStar is the benefits. They are second to none. I have two great bosses in my department. Another great thing is the variety of people who work there. They do not discriminate because of age, so there are people who are in their 80s and people who are in their 20s. There is opportunity for advancement in most departments, too.

    Cons

    The pay scale is rather low. You do get a 40 cent raise every year and a bonus in November if you do all the things required to earn it. Its not really hard to do.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of things that could be done to make it a better place to work. The 28 hour part time thing should be the exception rather than the rule. There are people out there that only want to work a few hours, but most folks need more than that to survive.

    Pros

    Superlative benefits and "family" work environment have been positive aspects touted by the company. If your lucky, you can work with a good crew that looks out for each other.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the benefits are not what they used to be, and HR has tried to cut back on employees' time so they don't have to pay out so much. The problem with the family ideal is that it is not a family. Rampant nepotism and cronyism coupled with incompetent management discourage most competent employees. I thought once I got in the door in an entry-level job, I would be able to move up, but I was wrong. My degree and years of military service mean nothing to these people. I wasted a year with this company that doesn't care about its employees. Most of the mid-level casino staff and leadership are children that couldn't lead a cat out of a wet paper bag with a map, compass, and a GPS. Vault management consistently fails employees who contribute the most. Winstar is completely at odds with Chickasaw values.
    Oh, and don't get me started on the food. Totally disgusting.
    DON'T WORK HERE UNLESS YOU FALL INTO 1 OF 2 CATEGORIES: KIDS THAT DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH THEIR LIVES, OR BORED RETIREES THAT NEED HEALTH CARE BENEFITS.

    Advice to Management

    Worthwhile employees are sometimes discouraged from advancement because they lose pay, or lose time. Restructure pay/benefits at the supervisor level so that quality employees will actually want to stay and earn promotion. Fire incompetent managers. If you can't figure out who those are, then you need to fire yourself!
