    I worked at Golden Nugget Hotels & Casinos

    Pros

    Upbeat Environment Decent Paycheck Steady Schedule Good Food in EDR

    Cons

    Incompetent HR Poor Management Points I fixed my attendance record but when they realized I was no longer getting any more points they started to write me up by harassing me to find their own reasons. They won’t listen to you if you try to appeal a disciplinary action. They will try to get you to change your story, then check the cameras only to find out you were eventually telling the truth. They will not help you, but try to convince you that you are wrong and they are right. They don’t care if you’re a hard worker. They get so butthurt if you call them out on their drama to the point where you won’t even get an apology from them. Stay away from any department does not look diverse, they will try to push you out if you are not one of them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Golden Nugget Hotels & Casinos part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tips can be ok depending on day. Not necessarily the best tips but not the worst either.

    Cons

    They dont care about their employees. Supervisors are miserable. Rude to guests and the dealers. Fellow dealers are all for themselves and will stab you in the back. Upper management gets worse the higher up you go! Horrible EDR. You pay for your meals - minimal selection, food old and sitting out, cockroaches.
