    I worked at Tulalip Casino full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady schedule, fun co workers, guests were friendly for the most part, great benefits that eventually tiered out and only became worth paying for if you had a lot of issues, occasional management recognition (twice in four years) through reviews or fun gathering.

    Cons

    Too many promises of moving up, being held back because of lack of steady new hires. Inability to keep new hires for long period of time. Terribly inconsistent training that didn't always make sense. No one truly valued the company's values. Unfair scheduling practices - decline for previously booked vacation at last minute. Silly attendance policy. No raises - COLA does not count. People stay for living paycheck to paycheck, because they have kids, and the insurance, not because its a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Work on integrating all levels of the team to the same level as management, show your appreciation for front line workers, and share the same values throughout. Quit changing things drastically without proper preparation. Give more fair opportunity to hard workers, and non - natives. Not just "favorites" either, just because someone has been there forever it does not mean they trump everyone else. Give actual raises for performance.

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Job Security
    Great co-workers
    Frequent breaks

    Cons

    No chance for promotion unless you're tribal
    Work Holidays
    Might have to work odd hours
    Very smoky environment

    Advice to Management

    I understand wanting to help your own people but Tulalip takes this WAY too far. I was dealing for 11 years, knew every game in the house and was one of the best dealers they had. They would promote some 20-year-old tribal member with 6 months experience dealing only blackjack instead of me. I was even told by a manager one time that they almost promoted me but they didn't think the "people upstairs" would like it. Tribal preference should only be used as a tie-breaker, it should not be the only factor but at Tulalip it seems to be.

    Pros

    Benefits because it's set up for the Native Americans. They get all the good paying jobs and we give them priority over ourselves. We owe them nothing

    Cons

    If your not native American you get treated different. Supervisor are a joke

    Advice to Management

    We didn't take the Indians land why are we giving them money. This happened years before my grandma was even born. I think we are even now.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of overtime if you like that sort of thing.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, no job security, HR department is an active detriment, nepotism is rampant, casually racist hiring policy, cannot tell its own employees apart. Schedules here are unpredictable, mandatory overtime is guaranteed and it's more likely you'll have only one day off than have two in a row.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing people for things other people said, the least you can do is TRY to tell your employees apart. Nepotism is rampant here as well, you know full well some of your employees should have been terminated a long time ago but never were because their uncle, grandfather or close friend was a supervisor or manager. Those are specific people, you KNOW who they are.

    Pros

    Diversity of clients, Co-workers are your commrades, relaxing job....not slot of stress. Fair management. Rules and policies are very clear.

    Cons

    It's easy to make mistakes when dealing with poker chips and large amounts of cash. Have to be extremely detail oriented or end up suspended for variances. Shift work. Most people will have to work weekends and holidays. Spouses are not allowed to be added to medical benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent on how similar situations are handled. Otherwise, it gives the perception of favoritism.
