    I worked at Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to work especially if you are looking to grow within the company. Team members were friendly and so were most of the common guest.

    Cons

    Driving up there in the snowy weather or during grave shift (late at night) was a bit scary. Unfortunately, most newbees start off on a grave shift.

    I worked at Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Because of the Casinos remote location talented people tend to leave for work closer to home and as the surrounding community doesn't have a large enough population to fill those positions the business tends to promote from within.
    - They provide meals.
    - Holiday related perks like turkeys for Thanksgiving, hams for Christmas etc.
    - Great paid time off policy.

    Cons

    - Attendance policy is applied to non customer facing positions just the same as customer facing positions.
    - High turn over in upper management means projects and company strategies can change on a dime.
    - If you haven't worked in a Casino before, there are lots of regulated aspects of the business, cameras everywhere and people looking over your shoulder. This can sometimes give you the here-jeebies.
    - Employee retention is not a priority company wide.
    - The regulatory aspects of the business aren't inherently bad but sometimes the implementation is poorly thought out and next to impossible to get changed.

    Advice to Management

    - Try to keep the good people.
    - Try to trim some of the red tape.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    great benefits and team members are like family

    Cons

    Tribal leaders get to much involved in casino operations and don't have the experience to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of managers just as much as tribal members and union employees. No raises in five years is absurd for a multi-million dollar operation.
