Zero work life balance
Attendant (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON28 January 2019
If you have a family and wont drop everything for your job, this is not the job for you. If you have no life, perfect job for you.
Part time (which is what you will be for many years to come) are expected to come in for sick calls etc. You will be scheduled anywhere from zero to 40 hrs a week. When they have enough ppl you get 3 shifts and expected to come in on demand. Shift work is terrible for part timers. You could work an early shift one day, then swing then grave..off for one shift back in for a day shift all in one week. Dont expect to ever get one week days, one week swing one week grave..you are filling in the gaps of the full timers. No weekends no long weekends off. You work Christmas Eve Christmas day etc. They are open 7 days a week 365 days a year. Starting wage is not much over min wage to start.
Pros
Tips
Cons
Shift work, no life.

Your a number not a human being
Security (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON4 December 2018
Worst company I have ever worked for. They treat you as a number and not a human being. Constant gossip/drama. Individuals that are in managment dont even have a college diploma but act as if there the smartest person on the planet. Do not work here your work/life balance will be done. You will work every holiday and spent your entire Christmas/New Years at a Casino where I yet to say the customers you will deal with are out of this world and can be some of the rudest people you have ever experienced.
Pros
Not much
Cons
Drama/worklife balance

The life of a dealer
Dealer (Current Employee) –  Belleville, ON2 November 2018
If you want friends or family outside of the people you work with, this job is not for you. Some managers are really nice, however; there have been a few that are very obvious of who their favourites are, and even bully some of the dealers. They tell you to use your vacation before the end of the year, however; they never approve any of your time off requests due to low staffing or other dealers not having enough games. You are able to learn games quickly here, however; there is not much of a pay incentive. The wage is terrible, and they make so many promises about raises but never follow through. During the slow times of the year, you will lose alot of hours. There is no difference between full time and part time, full time dealers will still be sent home before the part time. Seniority means nothing to this company, new dealers get paid the same as the dealers who were there to open the casino. The benefits are great and paid for by the casino, that's a plus. The job can be fun, but also boring when you are standing at a dead table for hours. You get lots of breaks as a dealer, which is another plus!
Pros
Good benefits, many breaks, sometimes fun
Cons
Bullying, senority means nothing, terrible wages

Minimal value on valuable employees
F&B (Former Employee) –  Maple Ridge, BC29 October 2018
It’s unfortunate that corporate mentality take over especially when employees put their all into making their Guests feel important.

The management have minimal respect for their team members, as long as they get a pay check, who cares.
Pros
Fellow non management team are great
Cons
Management care less about environment

6 years for nothing.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON11 September 2018
This place is just plain ridiculous. The management will treat everyone like kids, attack people behind their backs and turn it all into alittle popularity contest. If you are going to be a new employee, be prepared to work nights, even if they tell you differently during your hiring process. They are adding tasks to your jobs almost weekly and trying to cut costs daily. Housekeeping is very valuable, but being a housekeeper for them makes you feel like you can never do a good enough job.. I was there for 6 years and would watch multiple people have to quit over the years due to stress, sick leaves and mistreatment. Money is their number one goal with very little communication from managers to frontline. I saw 4 different managers in those 6 years, they all end up leaving. You will be made fun of as a housekeeper..
Pros
Wage
Cons
Work life balance, expectations, hours and comfort.

Goodbye family and social life
Dealer (Current Employee) –  Elements brantford28 July 2018
New members to the team will most likely be on the night shift. You work every weekend. You work every holiday. For the amount of sacrifices you make for this job, the pay isn't worth it. No support from upper management. You have no support from the union. Expect patrons to call you names, put you down, cuss at you and still continue to deal to them. The company is about making money. High turn over rate. Advancement barely exists. Lots of favoritism. You will lose friends. Your family life will suffer. If you dont have much education and dont mind being a robot, this might work for you. If you want a work/life balance, this place will not offer that for you.

Its clean

Not great...
Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  Woodbine4 July 2018
A lot is expected out of the admin staff, but the pay is very below average in Toronto. Since Great Canadian took over from OLG, the organization is very disorganized, and everything is about the bottom line. Employees are not happy at Woodbine.
Pros
Decent benefits (for now), flexible schedules for administrative employees
Cons
Low wages, unhappy employees, career advancement at a low

Security at Casino Woodbine (part-time)
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Woodbine14 June 2018
No shifts available, although they will call you 1 hour notice to come in our of desperation. Lots of people leaving every department slowly but surely. Thank you OLG for throwing your people under the bus who build this great Casino.

Stressful place to work due to difficult patrons and coworkers. Consistent noise, 8 hour on your feet, lots of walking, radio traffic every 20 seconds for 8 hours straight.

Working for OLG was way better. This company only cares about bottom line, profits and satisfying their shareholders.
Pros
free parking
Cons
no shifts

Good place to work short term
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC6 June 2018
Overall the company is great but a typical day at work may consist of many interesting and new experiences. Many times there are difficult times speaking to customers who are out of control with spending. A good day at work consists with many happy winners and people coming out to have a good time.
Pros
entertaining atmosphere
Cons
late hours
