Experienced Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – May 30, 2014
Pros: 401k, free lunch for those who do not get tips, a chance to move up.
Cons: short breaks, too many supervisors in one department each one tells you something different.
The years (5 years) I worked for Commerce Casino, I have learned more about Customer Service. It's such a busy place and I love working there it kept me busy, interacting with the customers, make the customers feel welcome so they can experience a wonderful time where I worked. I then transfer to the Cage Dept. and worked in the office and I really – more... enjoyed it, I have learned a lot from my boss, supervisors, and co-workers. It's wise to pass on what you have learned to others, because everyone has been there when you are just starting a new job or anything. Make everyone feel secure, treat everyone nice and respect your authorities. – less
Buffet Cook (Current Employee), Commerce, CA – May 5, 2014
Pros: free rooms
Cons: no breaks, for some of the employees
A typical day at work, is fast pace to get the food served for the buffet. While I enjoy learning more about many cultures to cook for. The management needs alittle more training to learn how to treat others. While some of the co-workers need to stand up for themselves and stop the complaints. The hardest part of the job is hearing complaints about – more... our management not giving some of the employees there breaks. While the most enjoyable part of the job is when all of the staff pulls together and work as a team. – less
Buffet Cook (Current Employee), Commerce, CA – February 20, 2014
Cons: most of the time the management didn't want us to take a break their now beening sued.
I'm a cook at Commerce Casino, and I want to resign because it's a very unsafe place to work for cooks, yet the management is very poor. I started working for Commerce Casino as a cook in October of 2013, and it is the worst employment I ever experience in my life.
Great job to get through college, not as a career though
Armed Security Officer (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – February 12, 2014
Pros: free lunch ( not the best), decent breaks, benefits and 401k match
Cons: time goes slow, lack of upward mobility potential, favoritism and lack of internal transfer opportunity
Quiet Monotonous. Difficult to stay awake during Graveyard hours A lot of politics and favoritism!! Overall good pay for security, (more than contract) and has benefits. Most of the employees are easy to get along with, but there are a few who like to create problems . Most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to save a persons life with CPR – more... or the AED Machine after they suffer a heart attack or other life threatening situation. Fire Arms training is exciting and very informative! – less
I worked there for a few years. I started off in a restaurant and transferred to security. it wasn't a good idea since the security department has no control over their employees. they do not know how to treat people. they are judgmental, gossip, harass and lie. supervisors are the same as well. people are labeled, stigmatized and called names. I endured – more... a lot of hard times, harassment and stress while employed there. I also knew a lot of woman and men in other departments that went through the same deal but were to afraid to say. never, in any of my past jobs had I encountered such treatment. not everyone there is like this, there were some nice people with manners who were kind and minded their business and just did their jobs. there were some supervisors I knew in other departments who demonstrated good work ethics and did not take sides and just wanted to resolve matters the right way. also, there were supervisors who dated other workers there and I found that quite unprofessional. also, there were supervisors I worked with in my beginning employment who were snobby and rude, and who gossiped as much as employees. it was just like a soap opera there. even the real high up executives, (some) were rude and talked a lot about people. how sad. still, the casino is a beautiful sight to see, very exciting with karaoke night in the arena, basketball and football game nights as well in the arena, the food in the arena and deli are fantastic. the casino is open 24hours and a lot of the porters and food servers there are the nicest, hard working people you will ever meet. but work wise, for a woman who's even slightly attractive.. she will be talked about because woman there are jealous, especially in the security department and cocktail waitress dept. they are unfriendly and cannot get along with anyone. it's so sad to see people have been run out because they do not want to have to deal with that kind of treatment every day. speaking from personal experience, I do not recommend it. however, that is just my experience, everyone has a different one and may see things from a different and better perspective. with that being said, I can say what I loved about the place was you can always transfer, you can advance, you get all of your benefits and you are taken care of if you are hurt on the job. it's full time and part time there so it's a great establishment if you want the whole package. lots of positions to choose from and it's fun to meet new patrons and employees as long as you keep your personal business to yourself and watch what you say because everyone knows everyone there and they tend to take sides when it comes to an employee they are friends with versus someone new. also, they don't like people who speak up for themselves or make complaints, they just see it as "a problem" instead of seeing an opportunity to do what's right. so be careful and watch your step there. but give it a try... – less
Safety/Benefits Manager (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – December 3, 2013
when new management took over they stripped management employees of their self worth and eliminated positions of all long term employees, regardless of their dedication to the company. i loved working there and being able to help employees with any issues they faced.... but was part of the company wide elimination of older employees

Human Resources Generalist (Current Employee), CA – July 16, 2013
Pros: you have free meals... nothing more
Cons: poor quality of life, micro managing to the 3rd power, no reall growth opportunities
Even the most optimistic employee to be hired in HR has become jaded to the culture and has become unhappy with their lifestyle in general. This place provides no stability, no hope for advancement (unless you're already in management or transitioned into Commerce Casino by following the Executive Director of HR) I say, that you weigh your options carefully – more... before accepting a job at Commerce Casino's HR department) Aside from that, they have no regard for individual quality of life nor are they understanding of uncontrolled situations such as beins sick! – less
Food Server (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – May 30, 2013
Pros: you get nothing
Poor management. They dont care about the people that work there. Even if they find out the worker isn't worng. They fire them. Supervisor plays for there worker they like. And you don't got a chance. There it is eye for an eye. And everone is on there toes day by day not to make a mistake, or there going to get fire. Just one misttake you are out, – more... no but about it. I know customer come first. But In a casino you have people that drink, on durgs. And the manager take there side. Not the worker. And a lot of good people loss there job. Its to bad for then and the family. And they dont want to give unemployment and have to go to court. That to bad. I know it doesn't matter what people say. It just go in one ear, and out the other. To bad. – less
Food and Beverage Cashier/Breaker (Current Employee), Commerce, CA – May 16, 2013
It's a pretty easy job as a cashier. But lacks flexibility in schedule. And asking for days off are impossible to get. 95% of the time you have to find someone to switch with which makes the request forms irreverent
Poker Dealer (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – January 18, 2013
Pros: i enjoyed the fast pace, and fellow employees
Cons: sometimes slow, would be asked to end shift early
A typical day I would come into work, deal 5-7 tables of poker based on how busy. I would deal poker games, I was in charge of enforcing rules, exchanging currency for playing chips, and maintaining a smooth environment while at the table.
Poker Dealer (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – January 18, 2013
Pros: good work place, enjoyed atmoshpere
Cons: many dealers, sometimes not as much work
Typical day I would come to work, deal poker at approximately 7-8 tables a night in 40 minute spurts. I would exchange cash currency for plaing chips through my own personal money and be in charge of money and controlling rules and regulations as well as players at individual tables.
Line Cook (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – December 9, 2012
Pros: free lunch brakes
Cons: non ting
typical day of work was very busy a lot of tickets and stress, i learned a lot of stuff i didn't know like cutting salmon steaks temperatures. the co workers we fun to work with we get along and work hard. the hardest part of our job is when we got banquets when we need to cook for like 200 people is a pain but u also learned how to b quick. the funnest – more... part is when they have party for the job. – less
Do you know why there's always cage cashier hiring?
How did you get the position? How long have you work there? And why did you quit if it was fun for you.
Job Work/Life Balance
Productive & challenging place to work with a variety of people
Floor Person (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – October 23, 2012
Pros: breaks and ability to leave early if not needed
Cons: understaffed sometimes and food service was inadequate.
I attended pre-shift meetings and then went to my assigned area to supervise the games and other employees in the section. I also handled all customer problems within the area. I learned all aspects of card gaming. Management was helpful and supportive. I had no problems with any co-workers--worked well with everyone and was told they enjoyed working – more... with me. The most difficult part of the job was dealing with angry, drunk customers. I found paying off a big jackpot to a customer was the most enjoyable part of the job. I truly enjoyed working with most of the customers. – less
