Generally a good place to work! But for some positions it matters not only who you know, but who knows you!
'Work from home' on certain days has made life a bit easier for staff as stress of commute time & getting ready time is saved thereby making staff more productive the rest of the days, working in office.

Did not see any growth potential in this role. I came in as a senior PM with tons of experience and did not see a way to improve my skills.

Also work pace was quite slow. No urgency in delivery.

Too much emphasis on contract positions there. But pay is decent, and work is interesting.

Management for the most part is really knowledgable, nice and caring. They truly want you to succeed. There are a few bad apples, but that's in every organization.

People are very friendly and helpful at this location. Co-workers were great to work with.

However, this branch experiences high turnover rates and there is a lot of office politics.


Not very welcoming to recent grads looking for a start in their career.
Pros
Great Co-workers
Cons
Few Opportunities for Advancement

I enjoy a big challenge. I like to get things done or fix what problems are outstanding. I'm fearless and will take on the most difficult of tasks. I enjoy employee interaction and do not consider myself a boss until I have to. I pride myself in keeping everyone in the loop. I do not work under the premiss that keeping what I know to myself in case someone chooses to use it. If it helps then I'm all for it. Everyone deserves to be treated in their own way and it is my job to find out what that is. then communicating becomes easier.
Pros
Hard working
Cons
Cant put my work down

On a typical day at work I can count on that I will have to sign out keys from a cage and coin supervisor to escort money from a secured bank area with other employee's, to fill ABM- Automated Bank Machine, CTR- Customer Ticket Redemption Machine, AJM- Automated Jackpot Machine for employee's only. I will have to sign in visitors to the site to fix office machine's, and fill vending and pop machines. I will have to ask patrons who appear 30 years of age and under for Governement Photo Identification in order to access the gaming floor, and I will have to stop any individual who appears intoxicated by way of alcohol or other substances. I enjoy working with the management team and seeing what new promations they are working on. I enjoy working with my co-workers and hearing what they have done on their time off and what up coming vacation's they have planned. I hardest part of my job is to stop access to the facility to patrons who have volunteered to take the step of self-excluding themselves from all OLG Gaming sites and try to enter.
The most enjoyable part of my job is talking to the patrons that visit the site and to see how they are doing.
Pros
Free Gaming Licence, free parking, free safety shoes or boots every year.
Cons
Have to stay on site for lunch and don't get paid. no pay raise in 7 years, as other amenities rise but our pay stays the same.
