    I have been working at Hollywood Casino full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pays the bills and there are some great people that I work with. A lot of the regulars are pretty good people to deal to on a regular basis; others, not so much

    Cons

    Players are allowed to get away with abusing dealers and other players on a regular basis with little to no repercussions. Almost no incentive to more up in the organization if you are a good employee, as a promotion is a paycut. Insurance is rather poor

    Advice to Management

    Promote qualified, intelligent individuals and give them an incentive to move up, not just anybody that has been working at the property. Show that you actually care about the well-being of your employees, financially and personally
