    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Parx Casino full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No college necessary. Great pay. Fun environment. Moderate schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Need to take a 5 week unpayed class in order to learn Blackjack. (The alternative is to learn it outside of the casino and pay $500+.) Not a smoke-free establishment.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the point system. Dealers get fired all the time for things that are well beyond their control and management allows practically no excuses.

      Pros

      You earn tips every night. Very nice co-workers. It is a very nice Casino.

      Belligerent and rude customers. Was always short staffed regardless of how many managers were present or how hectic the Casino was.

      I worked at Parx Casino

      Pros

      - Minimal oversight - Relaxed environment - Friendly employees

      Cons

      - Pay isn't competitive - No rewards for good work/performance - Upper management is a mess - High turnover - Company doesn't treat employees like adults

      Advice to Management

      Start taking your employees seriously and reward them for the good work that they do instead of taking all of the profits for yourselves. Maybe some of them will stick around.

      I worked at Parx Casino part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Money is good. Fellow employees warm up to you after a while of "earning your stripes'

      Cons

      3 Days Off Max a Year, Impossible to request off at all. You work every holiday and weekend, They do not care about you at all! You are not a person there you are a number. Senority rules even if they don't work as hard. Friendships with management help, but only if you worked with them before they moved up.

      Advice to Management

      Clean House. Listen to your employees. No Favorites!

      Pros

      Nice clean environment, up to date computer equipment, knowledgeable coworkers, competitive salaries. Great perks, excellent benefits. Great CEO, who speaks to you by name when you run into him in the hallway. Great employee cafeteria. All around nice place to work.

      Cons

      Sort of an "All boys club" no females in Executive staff, however there are some in middle management. Not much room for advancement. Some nepotism.
