    I have been working at Motorcity Hotel & Casino full-time

    Pros

    This company has been amazing. I have moved up to many rewarding positions and have obtained great knowledge of operations in front of the house and back. I was encouraged to grow and Management are willing to teach eager associates who would like to grow with the company. I have found a great team effort with a common goal amongst all. Excellence in customer service.

    Cons

    The hours any Banquet/conference facility can be demanding and scheduling late notice. But this is my passion so it is all worth the time.

    Advice to Management

    Mentor your associates and let them know we are all a large team with a common goal.

    Pros

    Great money, good benefits, get paid every week

    Cons

    Not a good place for a young person with degree... Easy to become complacent. Room for growth for some. Company 401k contribution only 3%. You must invest in your own retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Training could be a lot better!

    I worked at Motorcity Hotel & Casino full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits, weekly pay, and food that was served for the employees. If you can call a disgusting RAPID MESS food. All it does is have you in the bathroom with either diarrhea or vomiting.

    Cons

    Horrible Management and Local 24 United Here union was useless for me.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your behind and investigate what's going on in your department's. Don't let your favorite's get away with murder and work the good employees like slaves. Treat your employees with RESPECT & they will give it back in return

    I have been working at Motorcity Hotel & Casino full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee cafeteria has decent food. Good benefits.

    Apparently there is a 20 word minimum for this section so that is why I am still typing...

    Cons

    A lot of people abuse their fmla and call off all the time, which makes everyone else's job more difficult. Was told in my interview that the schedule was working the day shift, 6 months later I was permanently put on the afternoon shift. Upper management likes to keep all the bonuses for themselves. Security is a slight concern for me being a woman working the afternoon shift by myself. Especially after there were two older women kidnapped in the parking garage.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees. When you ask us to fill out a survey and nothing comes from it, what is the point?

    I worked at Motorcity Hotel & Casino part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great if you make it to full time.

    Free Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for employees.

    Paid lunch break

    Perks like tuition reimbursement and discounts on cars and computers.

    Above average pay scale.

    Free Parking

    Free uniforms and free uniform cleaning

    Tips and Overtime are awesome!

    Cons

    The scheduling isn't really flexible.

    Shifts and time slots are based on seniority rather than need of the employee.

    Takes a long time in some departments to be offered full time.

    Second hand smoke.

    Not a great balance for someone with a life outside.
