Completed Supervisory Leadership Training Program (Former Employee), East Chicago, IN – April 25, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits and very fair market pay
Cons: they sold the company, lots of things changed and it became a different environment.
A typical day started with preventative maintenece rounds. Checking all mechanical equipment in the pavilion, hotel, and the casino. Repair and service any malfunctioning equipment. I enrolled in a supervisor training program. Worked with 170 ton roof top units, 340 ton chiller, gas fired boilers, phenumatic and electrical vav distributers. Monitored – more... facility temperatures and adjusted areas accordingly with a Tracer Summit program. Management was very knowledgable and all co-workers came together as a great team. I truely enjoyed working at this facility and can not recall any tasks that I found hard or unenjoyable. I enjoyed learning the size and complexity of the machinery and always found my co-workers to be wonderful to work as a team with. – less

The Buffet team members were wonderful to work with at Tunica and LA Downs. They help make the job easy and fun. They worked hard to please their guest, even the rude ones. They tried to convert the rude guest into friendly customers.

Valet Attendant (Former Employee), Robinsonville, MS – March 25, 2014
A typical day at Fitzgerald was like a barbeque at an family reunion. u would meet people that you have never met before and the different personalities were amazing. The employees did things as a team better yet a family; we had each others back but the hardest part of the job was when the customers would leave.

Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Valley Center, CA – March 20, 2014
Pros: fun, high paced.
Cons: no growth opportunity unless you move out of state
A great place to game at but as for work it was very difficult to balance family and work. They pay better than most but you will work 45+ hours a week on a salary. Not bad but this is at a entry level, it is a bit much. Management was hit and miss with a rotation of managers from outside properties staying for a month or two to fill in. Promotion are – more... few and far between, lack of growth is why I left. – less

Beverage Host (Former Employee), Laughlin, NV – February 19, 2014
Pros: everything about the job and company.
Harrah's was an amazing company to work for. Their staff and management were always pleasant and helpful. The only struggles of the job just like any other job dealing with customers were the guest especially with it being a casino and throwing alcohol and losing money into the equation. The company was constantly giving us customer service training – more... which helped make dealing with uneasy guest an easier and better experience, not only for us as employees but also for the guest. I would have to say the most enjoyable part of the job would have been being able to meet a wide range of people and being able to build relationships with them and doing the best of my ability to have them enjoy their vacations. – less
