Good pay, fun co-workers, long hours, variable schedules.
Slot machine attendant (Former Employee) – Gatineau, Qc – 14 November 2014
A typical day at work for me would consist of starting at 6h45 P.M. and walking around my sector of the casino paying out jackpots won on the slot machines. I would socialize with clients, reserve machines, fill the machines and perform small technical support if it was within my knowledge and finishing at 7h15 A.M. with three 30 minute breaks in between.
I learned how to deal with various clients, how slot machines operated, how to determine whether or not a bill is counterfeit and how to identify clients with gambling problems.
My fellow co-workers were the most enjoyable part of the job. We were all a team of good people who knew how to have fun and help each other out.
The hardest part of the job was being on call and working nights and trying to balance with school.
As for the management, it would really depend on the supervisors and if there were job cuts coming up. Most of the time it was fine, but sometimes, during stressful periods, it was hard to work when the managers were watching and taking note of everything we were doing.
"Free" food, free parking, free uniform with cleaning included.
Long hours, on call, variable schedule
