A place that I've truly received more from than I'd ever imagined.
Pros: union and non-union positions provide ostensible job security, lucrative, etc.
Cons: hour reductions, loss of benefits, etc.
This is literally the first job that I've held for over a year's time, aside from working with my father mowing lawns. I have gained an immense amount of experience, knowledge, finesse, through countless interactions with an innumerable amount of customers, or as we in the casino industry like to refer to our customers as, "guests." I initially started – more... as a bus-person, cleaning and setting tables, as well as, serving beverages to guests. Having worked that position for 5 years - also worth mentioning is that this was and still remains my very first restaurant job - I'd learning quite swiftly that casinos truly have a "revolving door." I've worked with many different bus-persons, waiters/waitresses, bartenders, bar-porters, supervisors, managers and executives, and each of them had bestowed upon me a fixed amount of their knowledge. Some of it was extremely pertinent and incomparably useful while other disclosures were arbitrary or completely vacuous in nature. All in all, I do not regret taking this job. – less
