    I have been working at Knighted Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Knighted Ventures is the best company I ever work for. Partners and management genuinely care about you. They want you to succeed and be better. Training is great! They'll teach you what you need to learn and prepare you well. My transition from training to main task was easy and someone will always be there for you willing to help. Also, KV plans and encourage everyone to participate in outside work activity such as Relay for Life, outreach programs, etc.

    Cons

    I notice some turnover. I guess it's normal in the casino industry and working weekends is not for everybody. Weekend is the busiest part of the week for casinos.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to explore ways to progress as a whole - company, management and the rest of the team (employees)

    Pros

    Great benefits, everyone is treated fairly, great structure. There’s always someone to talk to when you need help with anything and they treat you respectfully.

    Cons

    Some people don’t like working nights but you get paid $2 more per hour for working nights.

    Advice to Management

    Management is always respectful, helpful and professional.

    Pros

    Everyone that is management is promoted from the Associate position, so everyone has a chance to move up.

    You get raises every time you learn a new game, for those that put in the time you can get up to $17 relatively quickly.

    Fun fast paced environment, you will have a lot of stories for your friends.

    Cons

    Sometimes players can be rude.

    The job can get repetitive at times.

    Pros

    Absolutely not one good thing to say!

    Cons

    Lying upper management. They believe nothing of what they preach. WAS FORCED TO QUIT AFTER LEARNING TOO MUCH OF THE INSIDE INFORMATION! Lawsuit filed against Knighted. Company owner (Roy Choi)will look you in the face and flat out lie. If I could leave a 0 I would. Worst work experience of my life!

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Job is literally the best job I’ve ever worked. If you’re attentive, patient and trustworthy you will get a chance to grow with the company and as such those who are willing will get opportunities. Flexible with scheduling, fantastic attitude and wonderful people work here and make it enjoyable day in and day out. The casino industry isn’t for everyone but for those who are like me this is a great company to put in the long term with.

    Cons

    Not too many cons here. If you are an associate it can become repeatable sitting games all the time but like anywhere else with anything worth attaining you have to put time and effort in.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who want long term growth and beware people who make it known they want to be elsewhere. But everything here is literally almost perfect.

    Pros

    Challenging, you can move up quickly if you have the drive. It can be a very fun job.

    Cons

    It can be stressful and very frustrating working with people (dealers) who only care about tips. You meet very selfish and negative people in this line of work.

    Advice to Management

    Management could be better, especially when it comes to team contribution raises.
