    Pros

    Awesome Management, especially in the beverage department at Winstar casino. Good money even for entry level positions. I have recommended to several people

    Cons

    Some customers can be difficult. Money varies by the time of year and what is going on in the building. Not much else bad to say, honestly.

    I have been working at Traditions Spirits full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly management. They're very understanding of the fact that life happens. They're always trying to give away gift cards and free prizes as an incentive to stay with the company and remain happy.

    Cons

    Long hours. Kitchen is very hot. When you start, you're thrown into the fire rather than extensively trained. Schedule might not always fit your social or family life but eventual seniority will fix that.

    I worked at Traditions Spirits (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A fair company to work for. They offer plenty of growth opportunities along with on-the-job training. After ninety days, you are eligible for health benefits as well. You also receive holiday pay if you are working the day of.

    Cons

    Long hours and working conditions can lead to a high stressed environment. They are always open for holidays and stay open until 2 am, which doesn't mean you leave at 2 am. If you have a family, I do not recommend this position or company.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is not approachable. Instead of preventing the problem, they often wait until it occurs and try to it correct then. Be more attentive to up and coming managers by offering them guidance and the tools that they need to be successful in their chosen careers. If the fire is lit, keep it burning and find ways to make it grow.

    Pros

    Working here is like being at home. Everyone is family. I often prefer to be at work that at my actual home. LOL. Managers are always willing to help with whatever i need. The business is always growing, and there's so much opportunity. The pay and benefits are the best in the area.

    Cons

    Other employees tend to be lazy and call out often, but what can do about that ?

    Advice to Management

    Keep being nice

    Pros

    The company mission statement is awesome, and if everyone could live by I that would be great.

    Cons

    Favoritisms at its highest, not consistent in decisions being made, its a case by case, but then want to say they go by what's in the handbook.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and consistent

    I have been working at Traditions Spirits part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a Bar Supervisor:
    - Anniversary, Birthday, Christmas & Performance Bonuses
    (Coming from Large Hotels, none of this was offered)
    - Growing Company with a lot of Upward Opportunities in Management
    - Company tries to promote positive work moral with contests and parties for employees
    - Promotes Growth and Learning within the business
    - Company Benefits are starting to improve with the company growing

    Cons

    As a Bar Supervisor:
    - Feeling like you are being Micro Managed at times
    - Some Standard Operating Procedures tend to change a lot since the company is still fairly new!
    - Human Resources has a very distant relationship with the property
    - Seems to be a disconnect between properties as some feel others get preferential treatment

    Advice to Management

    As a Bar Supervisor:
    - Needs to be able to differentiate between the properties and needs to realize that not all the same things work across the board at all of their properties. Different properties cater to clientele and employees.
    - Be a Positive Presence when on property

    I have been working at Traditions Spirits full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We provide benefits to our full time employees, we recognize people for their individual accomplishments and at each anniversary date. We have a company that strives to live by our Mission Statement, Vision Statement and Core Values. We love to promote from within! It's a great place to work.

    Cons

    We don't have a 401-K Plan which would certainly draw more people to our company.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to reward people in tipped positions that stay with the company for a long period of time - whether it be to give them a paid day off or allow them to increase their hourly wage with tenure.

    Pros

    This company completely invests in their employees and experiences constant growth. Management loves to promote from within, and offers benefits for full-time employees. There are multiple locations across the state of Oklahoma so there are plenty of opportunities for employees who move. The company works within a thriving industry and promotes a family-oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    With over 600 employees, it's difficult to know each one on a personal level like I used to, but looking at that con from a growth standpoint - it's a great thing!
