    Former Employee

    If you want to work for a good Hotel Casino don't work at the Golden Nugget

    Mar 3, 2011 - Slots in Las Vegas, NV
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are no good reasons. If you have worked at Harrah's, MGM, or any other big company that appreciates employees you will be in for a shock at the Golden Nugget. They don't appreciate employees and they treat employees like you are just costing them money. They have insurance benefits but they cost 3 times more than any other hotel casino charges their employees for insurance.

    Cons

    The Golden Nugget is owned by a restaurant company who doesn't know anything about Casino's, Table Games, Slots, free drinks etc. It's like putting a silk dress on a pig. It might be the only nice casino downtown but that is just looks.
