    I have been working at Golden Nugget Hotels & Casinos full-time

    Pros

    intereresting people to work for and guest to serve

    Cons

    a lot of unecessary standing around before or after hours of operation

    Advice to Management

    try to find that middle ground of keeping the servers that keep your restaurant running and guests returning and the management putting pressure on them to make the numbers.

    I have been working at Golden Nugget Hotels & Casinos full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's always something going on. Meeting new people while checking id's at the podiums, working the floor you meet a lot of celebrities, sports stars. Working the concert when A-listers are performing is pretty cool. I worked 'babysit' duty for the Houston Rockets when they came to stay. I've met a lot of people at work, in other departments, that I'll be friends with forever. Plenty of overtime opportunities. I've made a lot of memories, my graveshift manager, Mallory, is by far, the coolest boss I've ever worked under.

    Cons

    $10.25 for security is pretty laughable when you consider all we do, and how this place would fall apart with us gone. It's 90% so many officers quit or call out as they please.

    Advice to Management

    We deserve to get paid more than $10/hr. for as much as we take care of, as well as the amount of BS we put up with. Make sure that the next shift relieves on time if we're not staying over.

    Pros

    The people you work with co worker wise are like family.

    Cons

    The guests that the casino receives are soo rude to workers. Management i always trying to change things up and they go through directors very quickly there. The pay if pretty low but high for a casino in downtown. Health insurance and vision barely cover anything and the co pays are high. Not soo great.
