    Pros

    good company to work for sometimes fun

    Cons

    Senior mangers down to shift managers only wear the title and the uniform
    collect their cheques and go home . They LACK Responsibility, command ,don't show appreciation, no trust, no communication, they are re-active instead of proactive in-approachable and not friendly depends( what kind of day/night they had outside work)feed back is slow, not fair unless you are in the "click" .During evaluation they base the whole year of your work on two-three minutes of shift-managers talking to you. Then you get your evaluation .

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that have Management skills .MANAGER IS AN ACTION NOT A POSTION

    Pros

    Great benefits once you've accumulated tenure. Can be interesting work if you're interested in the gaming industry. The company is active in community involvement.

    Cons

    Dealing with operations, this can be a very stressful company to work with if you're not customer minded. Some departments could do better with employee development.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, etc. Their community involvement is really outstanding. They do give their employees perks, especially when the employees step up to the plate and volunteer for them outside of work time.

    Cons

    People are given jobs internally based off an interview rather than an assessment of your contributions and ability demonstrated in your current position.

    Advice to Management

    Previous work ethic / ability really should play more of a role in candidate selection. There a lot of people out there who can talk the talk, but not necessarily walk the walk. Also, there are a lot of people that simply freeze up in interview situations who would perform the role exceptionally. If you know your employee is exceptional, perhaps you should reward that rather than passing them up for job promotions continually because they couldn't cut it in an interview situation.

    Pros

    Great People, Great Corporation,excellent wages and benfits

    Cons

    Some Senior Management not cooperative with other departments

    Advice to Management

    Start building bridges from department to department. Integration is the only way to achieve a higher standard i.e Food and Beverage and other departments

    Pros

    wage is decent, good shift flexibility as a casual employee

    Cons

    poor communication from managers, very little employee development

    Advice to Management

    seniority should not be the only factor in determining promotions to supervisory and managerial positions. Much more emphasis should be placed on developing front line managers.

    Pros

    Not a bad wage or benefits, Two weeks holidays after one year full time, Can not gamble in manitoba,no slot machines.

    Cons

    The favouritism is so bad in the casinos,if you are not liked by the management team your job can be made very very difficult by some managers supervisors inspectors, the people in the jackets,If you make mistakes everyone knows, if you do a good job it is not noticed. People in the jackets are allowed breaks when every,and as long as they like. They can start work late and take a break ten minutes into there shifts.some even get to do their school work and get paid .Sure you get holiday time but it is very hard to get time off at prime time summer and winter holidays, the departments are so big and only one employee at a time so the people that have been there for years get that time with their children. manitoba lotteries makes them self look very good on the outside but really this is a very mean company.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix what needs to be fixed. Quit sweeping important issues under the carpet .Smile at your employees regardless which department their in.
