    I have been working at Station Casinos part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Pay is decent, starting pay for my department was over minimum wage with pay raises at 6 and 12 months.

    90% of management (supervisors and managers) are absolutely amazing and truly do care for their employees, they're not afraid to actually get on the floor and help out when we need it.

    My scheduling manager has been pretty awesome about asking people what days work for them and which shifts they prefer and tries to work you on those, if possible of course.

    Cons

    The priorities for where to spend money are way off. They just spent a ton of money on new TV's and a remote control system based around iPad's for every TV on the floor but the workstations in slots are falling apart (Desks are literally being held together with tape and staples), the carts used to do kiosks and others use to collect tokes (tips) or the one R&S uses to go from the cage to the sportsbook are in serious need of replacement and have been since I started working here. The money counters all need to be replaced quite honestly, at the very least they need to all be serviced, heavily.

    There seems to be at least 1-3 people in every department's management that needs to be fired.

    One time slots had to do full drops on 2 kiosks because the cage manager didn't give us the coin for those kiosks yet she's still working there. To top it off when she had one of the other cage workers Reconcile the kiosks she told the employee to ignore the coin buys and reconcile as if they didn't exist.

    A supervisor in Slots has screams and yells at employees over the radio and likes to belittle his employees verbally all the time. When he applied for a transfer we were all hoping he got it simply so we wouldn't have to deal with him anymore. He didn't and we're still dealing with him.

    The hosts at my property are some of the laziest people in the world. I was talking to a guest while a host talked to his wife, the wife turns to me and asks about getting a cigarette comp, i look at the host and ask if he can do it because we're down 2 people in my department and i was busy. His reply, even though their office was 100ft from us, was: "no, you can do it."

    I've had another host tell me "The people at Caesar's would be laughing at me if they knew i was getting cigarettes!" when i asked him to get a comp for a guest, mind you the guests who get the comps are all Chairman players, the ones the hosts are paid to deal with and yet they can't be bothered to do something that takes 5mins, 10 if they have to go to the gift shop because the kind the guest wants isn't in their vending machine in their office. I on the other hand need about 15-20mins, if not longer because I have to go to my supervisor.

    I got passed over for a full time position because someone else had more seniority than me, even though i was already trained to do kiosks and had been asking to work mostly graveyard and the full time position required doing kiosks a minimum of 3 nights a week, the person who got it hates graveyard, has been very verbal about working graveyard, and complains whenever they have to work it.

    I'm all for valuing seniority but it shouldn't be the first thing you look at when it comes to promoting, it should be the tie breaker between 2 equally qualified employees. (This is why i give "Career Opportunities" 2 stars because no matter how qualified you are, if someone's been there longer than you they'll get the position over you)

    Advice to Management

    Start having employees do something like peer reviews of their department's management to keep them in check and give you a better sense of who your supervisors and managers actually are as employees, and how they treat their employees.

    I have been working at Station Casinos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free uniforms, free meals, free benefits (for team member only), opportunties to transfer and advancement are endless.

    Cons

    Directors and upper management don't engage with employees instead are stuck polishing their laurels or in ivory towers. They will spend $100,000 to have 80 inch televisions installed throughout the casino but will not have floors fixed or essential equipment fixed.

    Many employees are given uniforms with holes in them and are told nothing can be done about it yet if a Chairman player has a complaint they will bend over backwards to appease them.

    Station Casinos has forgotten the biggest and best asset of any company is the employees!

    Advice to Management

    Make directors spend time on the floor especially on graveyard shift where it is easy to overlook items and have them listen to employee concerns then act on them instead of giving lip service.

    Pros

    Seeing locals and regular customers every day.

    Cons

    Finally was hired part-time after being on-call for 5 years - all while working anywhere 3 - 5 days a week. No health benefits, only for Full- Time, which is near impossible to get.

    Advice to Management

    I've seen favoritisim with managers and certain co-workers time after time. And pre-shift meetings emphasize fairness & reporting problems with co-workers and/or issues in work area that need to be addressed, yet almost nothing ever gets done. Management really needs to listen to employees.

    Coworkers in multiple departments were good to work with.

    Cons

    Management is clueless. Quick to give blame and quick to take credit for your work. They hire a lot of On-call positions to not give enough hours for benefits.

    Pros

    Fun, coworkers are like family, long-term customers are great, can make good tips if you work hard, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Managers dont know how to run the place, new girls not trained properly, may have a big section because of call outs.

    Advice to Management

    Train the new girls properly, provide them with information on what's expected such as uniform, where to but their trays, shoes, and hose. Ensure they have some ideas on alcohol knowledge.
