Beverage Server (Former Employee) – Halifax Regional Municipality, NS – 11 March 2019
good place to work minimum wage , tips hours are very late the shifts are very late evenings weekends overnight shifts until $;30 am or 6:30 am 8 hrs ,4 hrs no days available only to senior staff , unionized
Typical day at work; Arrive and set up for the evening. Make sure everything is stocked. I learned how to work along side VIP players and guests. Most enjoyable part of the job was fixable hours and benefits.
It was a good place to work at part time while saving for school but not what I want to do. I met some great people and I enjoyed my time there. I developed great relationships with co-workers and customers
Data Entry for Table Games (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 15 May 2017
I got to see how this business works and also got to meet lots of nice people that were around me on a daily basis, staff was a jem to work for. the management team where understanding of my needs as I am a Disabled person.
I was given a broad range of responsibilities and I felt like my contributions were important to the success of the company. There was little room for creative marketing ideas as, being a government corporation, there are many restrictions and the gambling/entertainment industry had little room for innovation. The company was flexible and the corporate environment was nurturing and supportive.
Table Games Supervisor (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 16 March 2017
The hours are not for everyone. The pay is great. The "company" is VERY short sighted and penny pinching. Great Canadian (ownership) lacks any "human-factor" and makes all decisions based on their near-sighted "save a PENNY, make a PENNY" philosophy.

Server & Hostess (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 5 October 2014
Not a bad job but a very low morale throughout the entire workplace which management attempts to veil by encouraging a "fun" philosophy.
Employees are expendable - the management may pretend to have your best interest at heart but this is not the case. Not only do they lack an interest in your job security but most of the time they don't have a say in your future with the company as they have a boss who has a boss who has a boss. Such a shame!
Such a negative environment! Felt like I was attending high school.
General kitchen work and dishes. Typically long hours and a lot of work. Not only are you responsible for the cleaning of the resturant but the catering service as well as any function the takes place in the casino.
Porter (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 31 August 2012
I was a cleaner at the casino and the job its self was not hard at all. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people i got the opportunity to work with, because all my co workers were amazing and I really enjoyed the time I spent with them. We carried on and joked around alot of the time which maybe every shift a joy to go to.
