The hardest part of the job is probably when it does get busy at times with helping so many customers, but all of my co-workers are willing to help me out at any time, as well as if I call a manager for a back up with the store. – less

Front Services Manager (Former Employee), Lake Charles, LA – August 4, 2015
Pros: Fun, laid back
Cons: Wasn't sold on the brand
It was good to be a part of a growing company. They have a very laid back culture but still push for results.
Some of the technology was a bit outdated, but nothing that really was hard to work with. I personally don't care much for the brand or its products, but a lot of people really like it so it was enjoyable at least to hear positive feedback.
Group Coordinator/Wholesale Agent (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – July 30, 2015
Pros: Hour long paid lunch
Work was usually extremely busy and fast paced. I learned a lot about time management and the hotel industry in general. I love to learn, any time there was an opportunity to expand my knowledge I volunteered. – more... Management knew they could depend on not only getting the job done, but it being done correctly. The hardest part would have to be that at many times the office was short-staffed due to the high call volume. The satisfaction of the guest once I completed a reservation for a special occasion. – less

A typical day at work is fun. My job is very slow and I like to stay busy at all times. My co-workers are nice and I get along with everyone.

I learn better communication skills everyday.
Cons: Bad healthcare, short breaks, advancement is very dim .
This job is fine as a first time employment or last employment position. The work is not hard and can get quite boring. Co-workers have been there many years and constantly complain. Management wants only bodies in this department. Company has given very few raises in the last 7 years.

Pros: edr, culinary, some friendly coworkers, tips.
Cons: unfriendly managers, lack of sympathy.
It was a nice experience. Many times my seasoned associates would tell me, "There's more to life than this job. Don't think every job is like this one." And I carried that thought with me the entire time. – more... I found out that if you just smiled at someone, or said 'hello', it could make their day. Overall, it was an insightful experience.

Pros: the people i work with are nice.
Cons: horrible management, terrible pay, and the overall set up of the valet system is wrong.
A typical day at work at the Golden Nugget for me is going to sound like me only complaining. The employee's at the Golden Nugget are under paid, there is a major lack of management and an out dated system – more... of running their departments. On the plus side, the employees who work here have great attitudes considering the way they are being treated. There is nothing hard about this job and the most enjoyable part of it is talking to the guest. – less
PBX Operator (Former Employee), Laughlin, Nevada – December 18, 2014
Cons: the job is great. the co-workers are disgusting! lowest pay on the river.
A real "click" with 300-400lbers that are permitted to make the environment and atmosphere horrible... Mgmt cares about the #'s, not what turmoil is going on in the work place AT ALL. Numerous people have "walked" over and over. EDR is gut wrenching food that should really be reported to the health dept. A total nightmare.
card dealer / trainer (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – November 17, 2014
Cons: breaks were too short
Come to work early at least (30)min.before shift starts. Wait to be assigned to my table.Same routine everyday. I learned about being patient, and working with others. Ive always got along with my shift boss and my co-workers. Hardest part of my day was having to smile when being insulted by players. Most enjoyable part of the job was the support of my boss.
