    Pros

    Easy, good pay for what you do, good health insurance, repetitive, brain stimulating, night differential, raises are dollars not cents.

    Cons

    Favoritism is a issue but that's just like any other job. More corporate presence. I don't want to say anymore cons because I loved working for pt gaming

    I have been working at PT Gaming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to make good money, fantastic employee benefits, opportunities to grow with the company, and a diverse, cool staff to work with

    Cons

    Listening to people complain because they are upset that they are asked to work overtime, which is good money, and they know this is a stipulation of working in this fun industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building out the benefits for employees, as you are continuing to do.

    I worked at PT Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Easy money, cool people. Fun at first, but as months go by its such a drag.

    Cons

    Graveyard life = no life. Repetitive. No advancement. Nothing valuable to learn. Basically have to wait 2 years for you to get your paid vacation, but they won't tell you that. It's boring AF.

    Pros

    If you would currently describe yourself as "desperate", this might be the place for you. Great place for ex cons, recent immigrants, or ESL persons. If you can hardly understand English, you can happily stand being belittled on a regular basis. Starts at a living wage as of 2017.

    Cons

    Your time here will start with a good old bait and switch when PT offers you 19/hr only for it to become 16/hr the first day of training. Little to no room for growth, you're starting at a dead end. Patrons and coworkers constantly bring in new and exotic illnesses from near and far, everyone is perpetually sick. Laughably tiny paid time off and sick leave accruals. Just enough for PT to be able to tell its endless parade of new hires that they offer "benefits".

    Management is hired internally and very low quality, they have obediently counted chips for years, not necessarily skilled at management. Kissing up and flirting is rewarded, childish/cliquish workplace. Moody coworkers/management/patrons reeking of body odor, cigarettes, and alcohol accepted as "normal" here. Expect regular and overtly hostile micromanagement. Mandatory OT and constant location/shift changes due to heavy turnover.

    On top of the "corporation" itself being best described as a confederation of gambling addicts. The physical work place of a casino is extremely restrictive and dirty. Cannot bring a bag/backpack. Cannot bring a lunch/food. Filthy bathrooms are regularly closed down. It goes on and on.

    I honestly regret telling myself it would get better over and over, spent nearly two years learning nothing new and making little to no personal progress. It doesn't get better at PTG, you get numb to the abusive environment or you find a better job elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    If your goal is high turn over, you're doing things absolutely right. If you wan't to start holding on to quality employees, need to clean house from the top down. Supervisors are generally OK, but I honestly have no idea what the management does here besides lurk around making work for themselves by blowing minor situations out of proportion, thus driving your most competent and aware employees towards better jobs. For all I know things are working as intended, so reader please do take this all with a grain of salt. PT Gaming might just be a "High Turnover Oriented Workplace".

    Pros

    Great co-workers that made the day a lot easier. It was a fun work environment with multiple perks of being there.

    Cons

    Terrible management, and will easily write you up for any particular reason. Always short of staff which meant forced OT.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire enough staff so there would not be forced OT

    Pros

    The pay was good and got along with everyone.

    Cons

    After 8 years working with the company, they could not put me in the morning shift.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say. They never follow through with what they say. The promises that they couldn't keep.

    I worked at PT Gaming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are generally good people. I like graveyard hours. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism. Very non transparent. Employees are treated like cattle. I don't really see any advancement even though they talk about it all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your entry level employees. You guys hide behind your supervisors. Don't make us feel like we're just there to fatten your pockets.

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working for this company! Everyone I worked with were fun to be around and extremely helpful.
    The hourly pay is extremely high and it is easy money

    Cons

    The only Con I have about this company is that a few of the Leads and Management team are unfair at times and like to micromanage.
