    I worked at Great Canadian Gaming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers and guests are for the most part great.

    Cons

    Terrible shifts, company doesn't care about the employees, we're just a number. The employees needed a union as a voice and we got one and then the President was pissed off at the employees. You can't keep taking, taking, taking and your bank account gets bigger and bigger and not expect the staff to revolt. Enough is Enough. Wonder if he'd let his little girls or girlfriend work on the front line.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for. Treat your employees well and with respect and they'll treat you the same. A liveable wage and quality of life isn't too much to ask for.

    Pros

    - Tips are are good, but varies
    - very easy
    - managers are nice
    - you are given an option to take early offs
    - you can also choose to work part-time
    - you can meet some very nice colleagues

    Cons

    The only negative thing about this place is the angry players. If you couldn't care less then this is a pretty good job for you.
    Oh and the pay is minimum, also you might pick up on gambling.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay rate

    Pros

    Most of the co workers are awesome, supportive and enjoy their jobs. Management change has been much better than the last one.

    Hire people who want to be the solution not create the problem.

    Some of the newer management are very difficult to deal with and condescending. The hr department is a disaster. wrong information, lost paperwork, miscommunication and controlling.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who want to be the solution not create the problem.
