    I worked at Turning Stone part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I met a lot of nice people from both Utica/Rome, and Syracuse. Most jobs are very demanding, but the frindge benefits often times out way the tolls.

    Cons

    Commute time, pay in some instances, and middle managements unsympathetic in granting sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of the retail business and focus more on entertainment.

    Cons

    It's 24/7. Stuck working holidays, midnight, weekends or all 3

    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, PTO good, benefits good.

    Cons

    Advancement is very poor, Too much nit-picking, Was told that they will not chase competitive wages. Will not pay according to living wage. Loyalty for employees is very poor. 10 years employee trreated same as 1 year employee. zero appreciation for any good job. Work only hard enough to not lose your job anything over that and never recognized. poor mamangement skills and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and value your loyal workers or employees will leave at the slightest increase in pay, maybe even for slightest better benefits. Especially when you have 2 competing casinos opening near you. Pay employees more and they will rise to the occasion when dealing with work and customers. Otherwise don't be surprised when your employees are rude to customers and have no care for their workplace.

    I worked at Turning Stone full-time

    Pros

    Employee cafeteria, good 401k and healthcare

    Cons

    Bureaucracy at its finest. Pay is not great and management doesn't convey how best to move up and increase pay. They will only increase pay if you tell them you are leaving, this company will not go above and beyond to make you happy. Miserable place to work with all of the smokers and less than happy gamblers. Verona - who wants to work in Verona? The executives expect everyone to kiss their feet.

    Pros

    You work with man different people, different backgrounds and have interaction with many different levels of managers. In the food and beverage industry, I always felt respected and did not feel as if I was just a number on their staff list. Not much negative about my position.

    Cons

    Be prepared for long, crazy hours. However- they recognize hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearly with your staff.

    Having to ride the bus. You lose 30-45 mins sometimes because you have to wait for a bus to get back to your car and to get over to the casino.

    Train your staff so that they have the tools they need to make the department successful.
