Slow moving work environment where problems rarely get solved.
Service Shuttle Driver (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – December 14, 2016
In the 2 years I have worked for Grand Sierra Resort, I have enjoyed my job. However, the people who operate the establishment are extremely budget conscious. They pay less than industry standards, they don't provide sick leave, and they offer a discounted lunch (which should be provided free considering the other cons).
I drive a shuttle and move people to and from the airport. It is a fun job where I meet all kinds of interesting people. I am outside 90% of the time in my shuttle. A little heavy lifting in the way of luggage is good exercise, and I am afforded some degree of freedom. However, once again thanks to extreme budget consciousness, there are issues with the shuttles. They are excessively old for shuttles, and as such they constantly break down. We don't have enough shuttles to keep all drivers in shuttles when they break down, and they have only bought one new one in the entire time I've worked there, while the other hotels have gone through numerous shuttles in that same time.
Poor management and compensation
