Cook (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 30 June 2016
I like working in Niagara Casino. Relatively secured job. The division of labour is clear-cut, each one being charged with specific responsibilities. I do not need to worry about if someone will exploit my time, energy and money. I can always find specific associate who can solve my problem or hear my voice.
Good benefit for myself and family members.
Shifts are flexible if you are not a full-timer. It will take time to get full-time from contract or part-time. All depends on your seniority or business needs. As a part-timer for now, the variable shifts is a big challenge for me to balance my work and personal life. Good time management skill is very necessary.
As a multi-culture and 24 hrs running working environment. It's really important to have positive attitude and good communication skills, there's a lot to deal with customers and associates.
Benefit; secured working hours; relatively fair working environment
Variable shifts; hard to balance personal life; unpredictable issues due to large customer flow
Look forward to working crazy shifts, weekends and holidays.dealing with guests from many different cultures, and being worked like a slave. Zero job security and no room for advancement or better shifts.
Had benefits if full time
No personal life outside of work.couldnt get time off.
Slot Technician (Former Employee) – Fallsview – 23 January 2017
Great place to work... Felt like i hit the jackpot when i started... Went through some rough personal issues and quit although they should have fired me for the days i missed... Would i work there again? ------> indeed !!! Have to love that hindsight
Atmosphere. Colleagues. Regulars. Pay. Benefits.
Sat and thought awhile.... Hard to think of any. Working steady mids, i recall thinking four 12hr shifts would have been nice. idk.
Didn't work there very long, I only managed a few shifts before I came down with Bronchitis. The Supervisors were for the most part rude and demanded to know how Long I was planning to have Bronchitis...

Casino Manager (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 23 July 2014
I get up very early. Grab a timmies. Start on the floor . Say Good morning to everyone. First my counts , the chips ,cards, check the win loss, the staff, the players. The hardest dealing the people that loose. I still feel for them even after all these years. The most enjoyable part is the bonds that I have formed over the years.
Kitchen Worker (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 14 March 2014
So, I got to work, we start pre-shift we get stationed. We worked 2 hours before we get a break 3 breaks in an 8 and half hour shift. Not to bad right? Well, that's pretty much where it ends. I worked in a kitchen, 'nuff said. Hot, and sweaty and gross, getting no respect from anyone and no one cared. My co-workers were great, except for most of my supervisors that is. Never helped, never taught the proper way to clean on mid-nights, and you always got in trouble for it! How fair is that?! The hardest thing most of all, was the lack of empathy for you, if you were dealing with buckets and no one would help you, even if you asked, you just got in trouble for being to slow. Like, I'm a hard worker, I wish I was Superman, but I wasn't, so I just got in trouble all the time.
Non-Gaming Cashier (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 11 August 2013
The pros about this company are plentiful! Here are a few examples: -The people you work with are mostly very friendly and happy to be there. -The work you do doesn't easily stress you out, and you always have management or security to call if anything goes awry. -The benefits for full-time and part-time workers are great. -Always dealing with different patrons changes your day-to-day surrounding. -They offer free parking on-site during the week, a fitness centre, discounted meals, and a variety of discounts at lots of companies for just being an associate.
The only cons that I truly have are: -Fluctuating hours. Going from grave shift to swing shift a lot is hard on your body. -When you are hired as contract, it is very hard to get part-time employment. Not good for job security.
