    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

    Overall culture of the company is very relatable towards the younger millennial demographic. Great pay for an entry level job. Management is honest and cares for employees. Opportunities to move up and learn managerial and supervisory skills

    Cons

    Can be a very boring and unfulfilling job at times, watching gamblers lose their money can breed negativity. Desired hours are hard to come by, as they are usually given based on seniority.

    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.

    Pros

    Easy, like very easy all you do is stand there most of the time

    Cons

    They treat you like you’re a child. Like you aren’t almost capable of doing the job.

    I have been working at Knighted Ventures full-time

    Pros

    The job is easy and mostly sitting around chatting or watching TV

    Cons

    You can make much more money as a card dealer and you don't need banking experience for nothing. Better off just learning to deal cards somewhere else.

    Pros

    starting pay rate of $16 hourly, with an increase to $18 hourly for any late-night hours you work

    Cons

    While Knighted is awesome, they don't own the casino or gaming rooms that you work in, which may or may not be clean or well. From my understanding, there's not much of a career ahead of you.
