    Pros

    It’s a job. Shifts go by fast depending on how busy it is, so it makes the day better. Can be fun depending on who you are working with.

    Cons

    People at the casino can be hard to deal with. Demanding customers will get angry if you don’t have something they want (like any retail job).

    Pros

    Good management, Good hours, Opportunity when company grows, Open to communication with anybody you want to talk to

    Cons

    When other employees are involved, it becomes about confidentiality, which is a good thing when it comes to personal life, but they don't do it there, its more when it has to do with there relationship to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your key employees in the loop, use your key employees to your advantage to understand whats going on and how you can improve relationship between the employee and company as an employer

    I worked at Trailblazer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with nice people. Work with really cool outdoor gear, and get good discounts. The company seemed to be growing, so its not likely to go out of business.

    Poor communication within the company. The company does not provide any training. Very inconsistent employee reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Offering competitive wages will go a long way in boosting moral and would help employee retention.
