Fun work place!
Dealer (Former Employee), Council Bluffs, IAAugust 19, 2015
Pros: Free food, great benefits, great employees, frequent breaks
Cons: Terrible coorporation that focuses on money and not the well-being of the employees.
Everyday involved playing games and having fun with different groups of people. I learned how to manage a positive attitude amongst wide varieties of people and being able to handle angry individuals. I also learned how to handle drunks and get them safely escorted from the premises. The managers I had were always fun and handled situations that arose effectively and quickly.

High Limits Host / Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Joliet, ILAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Noisy and bad air quality from smokers
Cons: Customers and staff
Working at Harrahs Casino introduced me to working with customers face to face to resolve requests and disputes up front in a fast paced environment. The co-workers were all great and management staff. The most challenging time was during the busy holiday, which was packed with customers. and very noisy. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with our customers directly and building relationships.

Table Games Dealer (Former Employee), Tunica, MSAugust 10, 2015
Threw out my 17 years of employment with Harrah's I really enjoy working with a lot of people. I learn a lot of games. And the hardest part of being employed with Harrah's is the day we found out we were closing and the day we actually close.

I won the president award. Followed floor plans and did all displays. Enjoyed working with numbers and the challenges

Fun job!!
Dealer/Player Tracking Host (Former Employee), Joliet, ILJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Fun atmosphere, fun co workers
Cons: Paying to advance in the company (Dealing classes) with no guarantees
Fun job, met a lot of good people. Not as fun for someone who is older or not in the cliq. Transferred from cashier cage to dealing. Loved the cage, but dealing was another story. Paid over $1000 for dealing classes (paid to the company),offered a position, then was asked to go back to the cage. When I refused (because I just spent over $1000 to learn the games) I was let go for drinking a soda from a self-serve beverage station. All in all it was a fun atmosphere, despite the overall outcome. Job is not for everyone, and you must constantly put on a smile no matter what.

Willing to Take a Chance
Rooms Controller (Current Employee), Council Bluffs, IAJuly 2, 2015
Pros: Inexpensive benefits
Cons: weird hours
The one thing that I think Harrah's/Caesar's Entertainment does well is that they don't necessarily look at the traditional things when choosing employees. They didn't care that I had been out of work for eight months after my former place of employment closed. They choose their employees based on whether or not they will fit and I think that's a really good thing.

GRA (Former Employee), Robinsonville, MSJune 29, 2015
Pros: They give you feedback on performance and you in turn get to give feedback on your supervisor
Cons: going from twenty rooms a day to possiable thirty depending on call offs
I would come in clock in have a buzz for the day what was coming in and who and what time go up stock carts get are boards of rooms to clean and go in and clean the whole room to get it ready for guest checking in guest that stay over get beds made dusted vacuumed and replace towels if asked clean guest bathroom
management was fair and impartial
like my co-workers got to know them all
was having to work longer hours with more rooms do to call offs
going to work like my job so much like the people I worked with and miss very much so
