Overall, I enjoyed my time at the casino. Pay is great, coworkers are friendly and eager to teach. The work can be fast-paced and especially stressful during peak times on weekends. They will not compete with your second job, so it is difficult to be a student or have other part-time work. My only complaint is the lack of support from management and human resources. No ability to move up to higher positions. Very demanding schedule, mostly nights and weekends.

The job is good for a productive sense you can usually find yourself killing time, but it's not worth the aggravation of being a ragdoll to strenuous and monotonous hours, arrogant bosses with personal agendas. Many times the seniority thing felt like a chopping block and good luck getting into full time with benefits.. pay was decent but not worth giving up your personal and social life.

Non-complacent well-balanced atmosphere. Well developed training sessions prior to the first day on the job ensuring every applicant is comfortable with the layout of the Casino, Security measures, and overall comfortable beginning the job. highly recommended employer!

I loved working in a casino environment. Love meeting people and as a Cage Cashier I musti tasked all the time in a fast paced job. The hours were hard to handle with a family. 3am -11am was the worst.

I contacted the Good Bar via email in a last minute effort to get a hold of their mezzanine space, and they responded quickly and were helpful to get our group a space. I had not been here before, but was pleasantly surprised by the bright lighting and comfortable atmosphere. The location itself is pretty cool, just because they are in a converted space that used to be a commercial bank.

The people you get to meet working there can really change your life. Great coworker's and fun place to work. The night shifts can be hard especially if you have a family at home.

Whereas this place is good for making money, it is difficult to balance your social life with the night shifts you need to work. I loved working here, and it was always a good time coming in and seeing my coworkers.
Pros
Great tips
Cons
Late nights

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

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.
Pros
Flexible work schedule.
Cons
Little room for creativity, low wage.

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.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Gretat Canadian, ownership
