    I worked at Station Casinos part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was always busy, never boring. For the most part the guests and employees were very friendly people.

    Cons

    Upper management went through managers in my department like crazy. They would fire them after a couple of months even if (in my personal opinion) they were doing a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees before making decisions on whether or not you want to keep a manager. You may come away with a different opinion about that person and their work ethic and value to the company.

    Pros

    Meeting good people. Stations was a nice place to work back in 2006

    Cons

    Terrible pay, team members make better money than management and they abuse the managers. Long hours, six days and you cant discipline when needed because they are so afraid of the Union coming in,,, They should just let it happen.

    I worked at Station Casinos full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    That one is difficult to quantify. Revolving door management makes it hard to give a positive. Pay is decent. Not up to par with the competition, but not horrendous.

    Cons

    Complete lack of vision and leadership. GM's, Directors change so often it's difficult to ever get any clear direction. Line level team members overworked and unappreciated. Management is harried, and the "Peter Principal" promotion policy continually puts under and completely unqualified people in management positions. Simply put, a recipe for disaster.

    Advice to Management

    You've gone from a JD Power top 100 company to work for to the second to worst company on the recent Bristol Associates gaming company review. Get proper leadership, get a vision, communicate it throughout the company and start taking care of your team. You'll be rewarded.

    Pros

    Non union, great staff of people, no one is allowed to say "thats not my job" Great emphasis on guest service. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Upper food and bev management comes into restaurants for their comped lunch breaks and servers are required to wait on them hand and foot, while ignoring paying customers.

    Advice to Management

    Management should utilize break room and not take tables from customers during busy times.

    Pros

    The chance to move up in this company is amazing. You just have to show that you want it and they will help you out.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little higher as an incentive to keep employees. There is a high turnover rate. Communication is a big issue here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees they know how to help improve things. Lighten up on the coachings and such.
