    Pros

    Almost everyone got a pay increase she the new casino opened.

    Cons

    I passed out letters to people for a raise. And now my staff makes more than me, and I'm their supervisor.

    I have been working at Four Winds Casino full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Casino is clean and the majority of staff is friendly.

    Cons

    Drink service and cleaning by machines is slow. Do not get cocktail last call close to 3, drink has to be desposed of quickly!! Don't try to eat the ice in glass, or security will be called on you!! FyI I only had 2 drinks the whole time I was there!! Then as of tonight, you cannot be in the smoking area if someone does not like it!! Security will get called! How can a smoking area in the casino call security on you for smoking!! It is not right, and do not plan on going back!! Been to other Fourwinds and never had this problem!!

    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 alcohol?

    Pros

    Great Top Management, Bonuses, Incentives

    Cons

    Poor Lower and Middle Management. Poor long term employee attitudes. Poor supervision of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people that cannot find jobs anywhere else. Stop hiring 75 year old retirees. Stop telling half truths to interviewees and stop promoting people just because they have been there longer.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. The 401k match, bonuses every quarter, and appreciation days really make this place great, if the higher than average salaries do not do it already.

    Cons

    Sometimes you run across a supervisor that is hard to get along with or that treats others as though they are below them. The power trips can be real, but there is enough movement, both horizontal and vertical, that it usually does not last long until they move on somewhere else.
