Don't get your hopes up.
grunt (Former Employee), Indio, CAMarch 19, 2015
Pros: free food
Cons: lies
You will be lied to from day 1. Be prepared to work with pretentious incompetent cowards who are only there to fluff their already absurd salaries. Their only standard for management revolves around being pompous and condescending at every turn. There were perks and benefits but to be able to enjoy them, you have to work on a day shift or be the teachers pet to get the time off to attend the employee appreciation events. In my experience the best part of Fantasy was leaving it in my rearview.

Fun but fast-paced
Casino Guest Service Representative (Former Employee), Indio, CAOctober 28, 2014
Pros: free lunch, employee perks, discounts, full-time work, pto and awesome management.
Cons: short breaks, no flexibility, and secondhand smoke
A typical day at work would be surrounded with a great team of co-workers and management, a lot of standing in one place, directing and delivering high levels of customer service to guest and VIP's, confidential data entry, and great knowledge of casino promotions and policies.

The hardest part of the job is just the fact that it is a company where there is smoking and gambling. If you don't smoke, the secondhand smoke might annoy you and as for the guest 50/50 chances of gambling, your bound to have to help a frustrated and or dissatisfied guest every once in a while.

All you have to do is stay positive and do your best to turn every negative situation into a positive. I truly had a blast working for this company and I know they care for their employees a lot.
