Pros
  • Certain positions can have good pay, good insurance (in 8 reviews)

  • Free tickets to some shows/events (in 6 reviews)

Cons
  • I realize they operate 24/7/365, but PTO structure and vacation time is flawed (in 5 reviews)

  • Not a con for me but you will most likely work nights at start, and if full time little days off and no call offs or it can hurt (in 4 reviews)

    I worked at Potawatomi Bingo and Casino full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never bored, good exercise due to a lot of walking, some customers are super nice. For Thanksgiving and Christmas you get gifts and/or a small bonus, which is appreciated.

    Cons

    Way too many random drug tests, some customers outright insane and hard to deal with. A lot of smokers in working areas so you are exposed to tremendous amounts of second hand smoke. Not many PTO days when you first start out and takes years to fully vest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, most managers are great. Some managers need to show more professionalism and Executive management should be more engaged with the employees on the front lines.

    Pros

    Good pay, and benefits. Friendly staff.

    Cons

    You just feel like another number to some of the upper management. The pit bosses are mostly very friendly and the floor managers as well, for the most part. Shift managers are rather short with the table games dealers and can be cruel to them. The players are mostly jerks, there are still good ones .

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand your employees a little more. Take time to get to know them.

    Stop playing favorites. In the beginning, they make it known that advancement through the company is very do-able. This is true laterally, through different departments, but moving up in your own is very difficult.
