Not a fun place to work, very frusterating, worked with very lazy people
Hostess (Former Employee), TuolumneCAOctober 17, 2013
Pros: lunches were free
Cons: did not get tips from servers even though did all of their duties for them. servers were very lazy
I did not enjoy my time working at the mill. It was very irritating and not worth the money that i was making due to not making tips because the servers were not required to tip out the hosts even though we did just about everything in the restraunt except for take the food orders and take the food to the tables. I would not recomend anyone to go and – more... work there, – less

Fun place to work because of the amazing co-workers you will have.
Cage Cashier (Former Employee), Tuolumne, CAAugust 8, 2012
Pros: free lunches, free laundry service
Cons: no bonuses
In the Cage, the primary focus is bank accuracy and guest service. Bank accuracy refers to the balance of all cash and cash equivalents throughout the entire company that are on hand. Additionally, sensitive information is handled at all times; therefore, surveillance as well as employee certification under the BSA is required at all times. The main – more... skill that is honed at this job is accuracy. Fines are derived from the inaccuracy related to the reporting of large sums of cash and cash equivalents as well as the composition of tax forms. The management style in the Cage was fairly relaxed and less hands on, but available if needed. Co-workers performed similar tasks and were typically willing to assist. Dependant on your work preference the hours assigned, days off, or smoke may be an issue. Aside from minor inconveniences, being able to interact with more co-workers than any other job was most enjoyable. – less

Not a great place to work. Work ethic not great
Retail Lead (Former Employee), Tuolumne, CAJuly 24, 2012
Working in the gift basket at the casino was great. Meeting new guests everyday was a great experience. Learning managerial skills from my immediate supervisor was very rewarding, but upper management made the job very stressful.

An Unfortunate Turn of Events
No Longer Associated (Former Employee), Tuolumne, CAJuly 6, 2012
Back in the day Black Oak Casino was "The Employer of Choice" for Tuolumne County. With a culture of family, loyalty and equality, Black Oak Casino went above and beyond for team members and in turn created a culture of a deep sense of loyalty for its owners and management.

However, since the construction, development and growth over the last five – more... years there has been a steady decline in not only the behavior of management but the culture, values and loyalty of the team members themselves. The result is an atmosphere of fear and loathing.

You may experience the excitement of being hired and even buy into the promise of working for a great company but soon you will realize that its just another job, that is dictated by forged relationships with the right people, empty promises and a constant realization that you are not the valued team member you were stroked to believe but just another employee hanging on for life to a job that is easily replaced by the next person standing in line for employment in this sinking economy.

Should you go to work for Black Oak Casino, make sure you stroke the right people or you will most certainly always have to be watching your back that someone doesnt take a disliking to you. – less

low paying position with out advancements.
Seasonal Cook 3 (Former Employee), Tuolumne, CAMay 30, 2012
Pros: free meal with shift, management willing to work with schedals.
Cons: poor communication, lack of caring among all staff, horrible hours.
Bad hours with bad pay and managers who don't care about employees and play favorites among staff. Most employees are trained well, but don't follow it. Many are over quailifed for the postions they hold and others drastically under qualified.

Dealer blackjack (Former Employee), Tuolumne, CAMay 2, 2012
Pros: close nit like family
when i worked there it was wonderful but it was a small casino 6 tables my co-workers for the most part were great except for some of the pit bosses who had no idea what they were doing they had never worked as dealers

April 21, 2013

In May of 2012(when this comment was written) there were 24 tables in operation in the Table Games Dept. All Supervisors and "Dual Rates"(those who are dealers one day and supervisor the next) are REQUIRED to be dealers before they are allowed to advance. While the four star rating is close to accurate the Opinions expressed lead me to belive this person has never worked at Black Oak Casino.

black jack dealer (Former Employee), Sonora, caMarch 8, 2012
Pros: free lunches, tv room with massaging chairs. great pay
Cons: long hours, lot of standing
Black Oak Casino in my opinion was a fun and safe work enviroment with plenty of room for work advancement and if there was ever a job opening they would let the employees have first chance at what ever job openings they had open which was awesome and the fellow employees were very friendly and acts like a family.
