    Pros

    Pay was ok. So were the benifits. Ceo was respectful.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about anything but the budget. They will happily lie to get rid of you if it means saving a couple bucks. Unless your tribal or tribal spouse you WILL NOT move up. I have seen tribal workers let minors in while they were taking an extra break and not a thing was done to them. All full time employees were cut to 32 hours a week to save on the budget. Constantly working a skeleton crew in every department....

    Advice to Management

    Treat people equally. Hire managers that actually know what they are doing. There are plenty of hard workers that would do a much better job than someone who got in because they were family. If you over hire it is your responsibility to fess up to your actions. Dont fire/cut peoples hours because you wanted a fatter bonus. We have families too. Treat us like human beings.

          Advice to Management

          A glass with ice is not alcohol and should not have to be removed, and especially 15 minutes before all alcohol beverages need to be removed!! Also how can you tell people not to smoke in a designated smoking area!! If people don't like the smoke they are the ones that need to leave. I know the casino is new, but you need to get things ironed out!! Either it is a smoking establishment or not and is ice really considered...
