    Pros

    Freedom to do your job, great teams, frequent opportunities to learn new things and get promoted. Great management team and general managers.

    Cons

    Internal politics can sometimes pop up but you'll get that anywhere. Pay is not as high as other places but the work environment was worth more to me.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were cool, benefits were really nice. I really liked my time here. I liked many things about this place.

    Some of the guests that visited here, when I worked here, acted really sketchy. I don't think there were any other cons.

    I really liked my time here, so I really do not know what to say, except keep doing what you are doing, I think you are doing everything just fine.

    I worked at Swinomish Casino part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You could work your way up through the casino to any job that you wanted.

    Cons

    I was a hostess and the waitresses I worked for barely tipped me out every night. For all the work I was doing for them refilling glasses, clearing tables an polishing their dishes, I should have been getting more than $1-$2 per night from each girl.

    I have been working at Swinomish Casino full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quarterly incentives, hopefully you're lucky enough to work with employees you can relate to

    Cons

    Uneducated management, lack of communication, noncompetitive pay, lots of finger pointing and no repercussions, unprofessional at times, lack of trust, no room for professional growth or raises, very cliquey, lots of hourly employee turnover, huge gap between salaried management and hourly employees

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees competitive wages and you will begin to see change for the better. Develop and invest in employee growth rather than relying on turnover to fix your problems.

    Pros

    In is a very nice, fun environment. working with multiple people helps with networking. with a 24,-7 job there are multiple shifts available to fit almost any schedule.

    Cons

    Overall the company pays very little which generates a high turnover rate ,(100+ a year) there is a dramatic separation between floor employees and upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees a competitive wage, which will help with an increase is customer service considering it is in the "hospitality industry". employee happiness has a great affect on returning guests.
