    Pros

    Not knowing what you'll walk out with ever night. You might walk out with $20 or $250. That's what makes you want to go to work.

    Cons

    Dealing with rude guests. Supervisors could be better. Not having any pickups. Getting into disgusting cars that smell and have trash everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Better fitted supervisor recommended.

    I worked at Island View Casino Resort part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Start out at higher wage than other casinos.

    Cons

    There are no raises. Mgmt doesn't care if you stay or go. Managers in Table games are not knowledgeable, nor are they team players. Lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Work to lower turnover rates, listen to employees, hire quality knowledgeable managers. If a new casino comes in... Many employees will jump ship!

    I worked at Island View Casino Resort full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of really good and talented people work here. The work schedule is easy, 9-5. The job itself is not stressful at all. A lot of the game development done here is really good. A lot of creative freedom is given to the artist and designers.

    Cons

    Those who have ambitions and goals need not apply. There is next to no room for advancement and ZERO pay raises, including cost of living raises. Management from the top down is weak at best. If you have little expectations from the company, then you will be fine. Make sure you do your homework on your worth going in... as it will be your pay for as long as you work there....

    Advice to Management

    simple advice to management is to help make the employees feel like their jobs have meaning. The company has a serious lack of culture and change in this department is needed. Bring in some consultants to train management from the top down. Some new perspectives and direction is needed. You would be surprised at what a little change would do for the moral and the bottom line;)

    Steady job. We average on tips 15-20 an hour plus 5.00 flat rate. If you dont miss a day in a quarter you get a day off with pay

    Cons

    No raises since opening. They sweat the money. No benefits for senority.

    Advice to Management

    Cost of living raise. To acknowledge that day one emploees have worked hard to build and make this casino a success and we desrve a raise or to be compensated in some way.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my Coworkers and immediate Managers/Supervisors.

    You need to start giving cost of living raises annually, be better to your employees, stop being greedy.

    Good coworkers I can't think of a 20 word pro for this company so I'll just say nothing except some good people that work there

    Cons

    Free meals that mostly will get u sick. Management sucks. Higher ups do not care about you! You are just a number. If one supervisor doesn't like you you can hang it up they will get u out

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be better humans
