    I worked at Affinity Gaming part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. There are no positives to working at this dump. *sigh* Well, there is provided parking, an EDR (small and sub-standard, though it may be), management doesn't micromanage, you can get a little bit of pouring experience behind the bar, and they'll hire pretty much anyone who can pass a drug test.

    Cons

    Not enough time in the day to explain, but I'll try anyway:

    - No discounts on anything.
    - They treat their bar backs like rented mules, all while they get paid a small fraction of what other places offer (literally half the hourly rate of most Strip casinos and bread crumbs for tips).
    - Filthy, hostile work environment.
    - No appreciation or concern for their employees whatsoever. Sick with severe strep throat? Too bad, buddy. You're coming in anyway!
    - Laughably high turnover rate in most departments. It's pretty tacky that this a casino and they use urine tests for their drug screenings. Almost like they... anticipate people quitting after a month or two.
    - Non-union, bottom-of-the-barrel, revolving-door operation.
    - Zero sense of camaraderie, or mutual trust whatsoever among coworkers. The constant backbiting in there was ridiculous.
    - Upper management seeks to blame everyone else but themselves for why the place is universally reviled all over every major review Web site.
    - Dealing with the worst patrons of nearly any casino bar in town. It's basically a daycare center for entitled, drunken lowlifes. Prepare take endless amounts of crap for peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, for crying out-loud. You are not making them want to stick around. Just because you halfway pretend it's such a wonderful place to work and that they should all be doing backflips in excitement to being there, doesn't mean it actually is.

    Also, take some responsibility for the dysfunction of your so-called establishment. The reason your casino has the reputation it does and why no semi-respectable human being would be caught dead in that cesspool is primarily YOUR fault, not everyone else's but yours. Holding mandatory meetings for the sole reason of passing the buck down your hardworking employees and telling them to their faces that the GM has no faith in them is a GREAT way to boost morale! By the way, if your FAB employees' only incentive to smile more at the cheap, obnoxious customers is simply not getting fired, then that says a lot about how much you truly value them.

    Pros

    The managers are great about making sure you have adequate training and support. Employees are all helpful.

    Cons

    Primm is a pretty far drive from Las Vegas. The hours can be a little brutal with 4 10's starting at 5am

    Advice to Management

    Management does a pretty good job. No real complaints.

    Pros

    Colleagues were great to work with.

    Cons

    Management did not know what they were really doing and they really did not care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management should not be calling workers names and should grow up and treat workers with humanity. Even older employees who are dependable and put up with a lot of abuse should be recognized for their dependability. American citizens treated poorly but foreigners especially fillipinos favored by management.

    Pros

    The company is in a good financial position and run conservatively. My local managers really care about me and the customers.

    Cons

    Corporate micro-management of properties with a focus on cutting expenses and customer service without any focus. The leadership has no focus of goals or principles on what it wants to be and that is at the detriment of the customers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get a unified goal of what you want Affinity to be, create the principles that everyone will make decisions by. Trust in your local management or give them the training they need so that they can operate the casinos the way you want them to.
