    Pros

    Good managers let you work as many hours as you want can switch shifts if you want

    Cons

    I worked at Choctaw Casino and Resorts full-time

    Pros

    Fun and fast paced work environment, great pay and benefits at all levels.

    Cons

    Very little support from management, and bad things roll down hill. You can find yourself in hot water for your supervisor's mistakes. There's very little communication between upper level management, and because of that the lower level employees suffer. Also, if you have an aversion to cigarette smoke, this place is not the place for you. I smelled like a cigarette after every shift, and if it was particularly heavy it made my asthma act up.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more kind to your employees. They are people, not numbers.

    I have been working at Choctaw Casino and Resorts (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay
    Great Benefits (after a year for part time)
    Yearly holiday bonuses
    Great employees

    Cons

    Scheduling
    Sense of favoritism
    Management can come off as rude or tend to not care (only a few like this)

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional, separate your work life from your home life and don't take out your frustrations on your employees. Be more considerate on scheduling, and seek to better your department and don't limit those that help you.

    Pros

    Best Benefits I have ever seen, great pay, and great PTO accrual.

    Terrible management and communication. Issues with guests are left up to low-level associates to handle, and there is very minimal training given before being thrown to the wolves.

    Advice to Management

    Get training in managing people and communicate.
