    I worked at Mashantucket Pequot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meet a lot of good people. It's a good place visually, you will learn a lot about the place just by working there.

    Cons

    It lacks on the communication. It is not a structured environment. The manager does not communicate at all. It needs management.

    Advice to Management

    Needs management.

    Pros

    If your a native american or know someone in that particular tribe, you've got it made. Otherwise, your just another badge number.

    Cons

    Standing on cement all the time is really brutal on your back, knees, feet..etc. While standing on cement you must deal with some of the dregs of society who complain endlessly and do not bathe or brush their teeth. One player never goes to the mens room, he just stands there and plays until his diaper stinks so bad you are forced to ask him to leave the area.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to senior management is WAKE UP! Go down to the casino floor and see what we must put up with all day, every day and treat those employees better than you have been. Look around, those are the people that are bringing in the money that makes your payroll! I was a loyal employee for 14 years and was kicked to the curb in October. We were told you were going by seniority. Day one people were walked out while people that have less time in are still working there.

    Pros

    Applying for a job is easy, and not much previous experience required for my particular department. All training is provided and paid for by the company. Job fairs are constantly being held on location, so it's easy to interview and be hired on the spot as well.

    Cons

    There are long hours during busiest times of the year. New employees will have no choice as to which shift they work as well. It's the nature of the 24 hour, 365 day a year business though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. All the people skills I learned from the time I spent working there have proven invaluable in both my personal and business life now.
