It's a fun place to work, employees are friendly for the most part, many opportunities for overtime due to under-staffing, holiday pay, managers are very accommodating if you do your job well.
Stagnant, guests are often extremely rude, not much room to grow, mediocre raises, after the first week you will start to notice that everything feels like it is stuck in 1993. The increase in pay that comes with promotions seems mediocre as well. There is no communication whatsoever. There are little to no reasons to do any more than the bare minimum.
Advice to Management
Incentives can do wonders for employee morale, and would also solve issues evolving from an applicant drought in lower-level positions.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Turning Stone.
There were about 20 other people interviewing that day in the Food & Beverage Industry which I saw in a 30 minute time period. I sat down with the hiring manager and he asked me to tell him about myself. He asked if I could make a martini and I said no because I was previously working at a college bar making basic drinks (Gin and tonic, etc.). He said he liked me and hired me on the spot. All you need is to clean up well, look and act very professionally, and have a friendly personality. After hiring you must fill out a lot of paperwork to get your gaming license. That takes about 3 days, and then you have to attend a 2 day orientation from 8am-6pm.
