    Pros

    They know who the hard workers are.

    Cons

    You won't get the recognition for it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your lower tear workers better, i.e. better pay, real recognition of excelling in the roll they play, you should also stress communication within and between departments.

    I worked at Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority (More than a year)

    Pros

    Felt like family the day I was hired. Trusted my ability to do the job, frequent praise and words of encouragement, pay was very genorous, and benifits for being a part-time/on-call employee. lots of growth internally. And as VIP bottle service girl, always felt protected with security looking out for me.

    Cons

    Working is a smoke filled enviorment.

    Pros

    Of course the benefits, pharmacy, store, fitness club and fitness programs, cafeteria (sure there were bad days, but most of the time, I had some good lunches there). But it's the people and the work I miss most. I liked the fast paced environment and would go back if the right opportunity presented itself.

    Cons

    Downsides would be favoritism (but that is everywhere), it was very difficult to move up due to tribal preference, and a lack of communication from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people who actually work on the floor and deal with customers every day. They know what they are talking about and you should listen when they say there is a problem. Communication with, and respect for, the line workers would do a lot to improve morale.

    I have been working at Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority part-time

    Pros

    Good cafeteria, clean place, payment always on time.

    Cons

    They don't have to follow labor laws. They are their own entity so they can discriminate as much as they want and you have no say.

    Advice to Management

    You are just a number, no matter what position you have. As soon as they think you don't fit anymore or they have a replacement who will work for less, you are done.

    I worked at Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority full-time

    Pros

    Close to home. Good Health benefits with Anthem. A private company that will not be bought out by another company.

    Cons

    Was a good employer, it is now a below average employer. 401k match is very low. Government / Tribal politics run rampant and are extremely hard to deal with. Tribal membership is very demanding.

    I have been working at Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have made great friends. I can make a decent amount of money in a short period of time. Medical benefits and 401k. They do have an employee grille and it is a very lade back atmosphere when we are on break. Byt, that is much needed considering working in a casino is toxic.

    Cons

    Every addiction is in this place. If there is an issue human resources will side with the first person who goes down and writes the incident report. They have no clue what they are doing in human resources. They treat you like a criminal if you are a witness to an incident. And They Need To Up The Salary For Managers and Supervisors. They are over worked, over whelmed, tired for the pay it isn't even tempting to want to make a move from beverage server to supervisor to manager. Very unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Start doing weekly meetings (with one another). Have an ascent training class at least once a month. And if there are supervisors not willing to learn then they are not qualified for the position.

    None
