Sycuan Casino – Why Work For Us?


The ancestors of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation existed many centuries ago as a community of people…a Tribe living together, farming, hunting and fishing to survive.

Much has changed since that time. Today the Sycuan Tribe governs its Reservation, owns and operates a Casino and a Golf Resort, and owns a number of other business ventures in the San Diego region.

One attribute that remains unchanged, however, is Sycuan’s sense of community. Sycuan is more than just a business. Sycuan is a community of people working together toward a common goal. Whether you work in our state-of-the-art Casino, our beautiful Resort, or become a staff member in our Tribal Government division, you will be part of the Sycuan family.

While the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation is building a reputation for an unmatched commitment to our community and our guests, we know that without a strong commitment to our team members, reaching our goals would be impossible. It goes without saying that we offer our team members competitive wages, training opportunities, and a generous benefits package.

If you enjoy being part of a community dedicated to creating a memorable guest experience, we invite you to explore career opportunities with Sycuan and join our winning team!

WHAT MAKES SYCUAN SUCH A SPECIAL PLACE TO WORK?

The Sycuan Difference

Sycuan is more than just a business. Sycuan is a community of people working together toward a common goal. Whether you work in our state-of-the-art Casino, our beautiful Resort, or become a staff member in one of our other enterprises, you will be part of the Sycuan family. In addition to the Casino and the Resort, Sycuan operates a Fire Department, Medical Clinic, Dental Clinic, Day Care Center, Police Department, and an Education Department. We currently employ over 2,300 team members in a variety of positions, including casino operations, hotel operations, golf operations, food and beverage, security, accounting, sales and marketing, facilities and landscaping, just to name a few.

Sycuan understands that every team member, regardless of position, plays a part in and shares the responsibility for promoting a positive work environment. Our Code of Ethics was developed by our team members and provides values and standards that guide our team members in their day-to-day interactions with guests and other team members. Sycuan also partners with EthicsPoint to enhance communications and empower our team members to promote safety, security, and ethical behavior in the workplace.

Providing exceptional guest service is the foundation of our business. Each team member is responsible for providing exceptional service to every guest with whom he or she comes in contact. The Sycuan Difference Pledge, Core Goals, and Soaring Standards, also developed by our team members, help further define our behaviors and the way in which we service and care for our guests and each other.

Native American sovereignty plays an important role on and off the reservation. Take a closer look with Chairman Martinez at Sycuan’s history, and how self-reliance has allowed Sycuan to have a positive economic and community impact throughout San Diego and State of California, all while maintaining the prevalence of their culture and traditions for future generations.
