Bally Technologies has been my career for the past 13+ years. I started with Bally's when their stock was less than $3.00. They took a chance on me and I did not want to disappoint them. It is a challenging business but I Love it.
My typical day at work consists of completing any projects, game moves, or issues from the night prior. Check paperwork, logs, no play of VLT machines and a brainstorming session with my immediate Manager. We have a very diverse crew of technicians (from West Indian to Chinese).
The hardest part of my job is that I have to take it home. The paperwork (office) part of the job usually carries over into my family time. Also technical support for my technicians.
The most enjoyable part of the job are the customers! You meet people from all walks of life and backgrounds. I have met a lot of interesting people.
Over my career I have learned that not all casinos are the same. Management plays a big part in the success of casinos. You can see that it starts from the top. The moral of their staff, how much they do or don't enjoy their job. I have also learned how to communicate with different personalities. Which is a must in our business.
