I just have to say that this is an great place to work. I have been here close to 9 years and love coming to work each day. They really do take care of their associates. Even with the lay offs, associates received support. So glad that I work here and have met so many amazing people, that I call friends. My managers are also very supportive when it comes to life balance and I know I never have to worry about life happening. I would truly do recommend River Cree, as you make your own experience and I have had an amazing one!
Pros

Management is awful. Security Personnel are a joke. No one really has a clue of what they are supposed to do. Laziest security workers I ever seen. Would recommend to people to go pick garbage out of the ditch.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list.

Difficult management and unwilling to work with employees. They treat you like you should be thankful to even have a job! Requested days off are not given and you’re told to work around they’re schedule even though it’s posted 48 hrs before shifts and staff is not notified when schedule changes are made
Pros
Money’s decent
Cons
Hours, schedule and management

I loved the team I was a part of. However, most employees were inconsistent and often called in. Whiched led to bussers being overworked. The two managers were easy going and helped when needed. But one of them gave me and a few others a hard time for his own entertainment.

If you want to be treated like a dog then you will like this place for sure. HR dept is non existant. Management is uneducated, abusive and treats workers as second class Very very high turnover.
Pros
You get to leave at end of day
Cons
Management and favouritism

I don't recommend working here unless you're Enoch. Poor and unorganized management. They say they have numerous coaching steps but they only apply to the band members and if you're not, chances are you get fired in a snap, especially during probation. They don't seem to care about the employee's turnover rate, who they hire and who they let go. Scheduling is a mess; there could be no notice on your next shift and sometimes you have to go through 3d parties to find out when your next shift is. A lot of micromanagement and policing of hearsay. Too much politics overall. Good for part-time, but too pressuring to be there full-time; no security/reliability.
Pros
Sometimes free lunches, show tickets, tips
Cons
Lies and politics

I have been with the company for about 2 years now and I can happily say I do not want to leave. My job is amazing and I love coming to work, and this has a lot to do with management. The River Cree is one big family that welcomes everyone with such warmth.
Pros
Associate Barbecue's

Management has no clue what they are doing. Hire people who don't have any technical experience about the job. Hire people because their resume hits all the key points but actually have no clue what they are doing. Frustrating when you have to explain yourself countless times to management on what should be done and how things should get fixed. They don't care about your opinion, even if you have years of experience in trades/engineering.

Generally the River Cree is not bad to work with. The work is s little bit stressful, sometimes exausting, but satisfying. If you ar lucky, you have even a good superviser. Unfortunately I get a new boss hwo want me to leave, to open position for him old guys. But I am going to try to survive and stay here.

Reduced benefits. Broken promises. Consistently taking away the things that made it a comfortable position. I was let go because I was having complications with my health. I tried explaining and brought doctors notes. Instead of finding a solution that worked well for both of us I was let go due to an archaic write up system.

Did cashier duties, i learned retail and more customer service experience. Management was all over the place. Hardest part of the job was dealing with bad customers and some dramatic co-workers. The most enjoyable part was getting to know nice customers that always smiled and laughed, and getting to know some amazing co-workers.

Very stressful environment. No wonder why so many people there are quitting their job. Some are just waiting for opportunity, trying to cope up with how they get treated like a slave.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Worst management

The job is relatively easy as long as working night shifts full-time doesn't bother you. Management is more reactive than proactive and can be punitive towards staff rather than properly addressing issues. The group is motivated but there can be a lot of gossip at times. Overall decent place to work and good money for the type of work. I would recommend for people while in school or as a side job but not full-time or if you're hoping to progress.

It was nice when our pay was deducted for our lunches. That was a great benefit. Management was much better then the Directors. The directors were from the Enoch Band, and I found they were not very educated, and were not employee friendly. They loved to be looked at as someone with power and used it when they wanted to intimidate the employees. They were very giving and flexible to their band members but not with non band members even the indigenous employees. A very unfail place to work, stressful without benefits

You are as expendable as the next human if you are considering working here. River Cree casino is not a good place to work. No work life balance, River Cree will hire on a part time basis and make you work full time hours. River Cree has a HIGH turnover rate in employees. DO NOT waste your valuable time with this company.
Pros
No pros to working here
Cons
Long hours, no work life balance, don't value employees
