Pros: co-worker s
Cons: management is young and needs training
Job was eliminated and outsourced. Went to a different department where itnwasn improperly managed. Loved my co-worker but the supervisors and managers only had their own backs. Always understaffed and was not able to get proper breaks.

Fun workplace with excited customers
Server's Assistant (Former Employee), Bossier City, LAMay 24, 2014
Pros: fun managemetn
Cons: low amounts of tips
A typical day at work includes interacting with customers and getting to know them. It is fun to mix being a serious employee along with being an outgoing member of the Harrah's family. I learned how to delight customers and work effectively in a fast-paced environment. My manager is a great woman who always tries to work with me. My co-workers helped – more... me quickly learn the ropes when I first started and they always encourage me to keep being the hard worker at this job that I am. The thing that I enjoyed the most about this job is having customers come back and compliment me and my co-workers on the great work we did in the past. They come back to our business and it's always good to know that you are appreciated. – less

Fun work environment at first, but quickly declines
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), Maryland Heights, MOMay 19, 2014
Pros: good starting pay, fun ever changing environment
Cons: healthcare is very expensive, favoritism, poor management
Working at Harrahs Casino was an incredibly fun experience. But as soon as Hollywood took over things began to decline. If you have any sort of difficult conflicts such as being a college student you will have a very hard time getting fair hours. Favoritism is an issue at the Hotel Front Desk. Good Luck moving up at all in the company. You start as – more... the night shift (4-12) you stay on this shift until someone quits or moves up. Set days off are given out by seniority or so they say but many times favoritism plays a role here as well. Also the benefits for full time are pretty expensive, but part time is even worse. – less

Total Rewards Manager (Current Employee), Las VegasMay 11, 2014
Pros: great employee culture
Cons: needs better benefits.
My typical day at work starts with meetings with my employees to make sure everything is going well with them.
What I've learned from our management is that customer service is first above all. A caring culture for the employees and they take an genuine interest in the well being of every employee.
My learn from my co-workers on a daily basis. I believe – more... in teamwork and feel that it's teamwork that binds the department.
Hardest part of my job is trying to manage multiple properties.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the guest interaction I have. – less

A place that I've truly received more from than I'd ever imagined.
Dining Area Attendant (Current Employee), Atlantic City, NJMay 2, 2014
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

Pros: great discount with allegiant, delta

A wonderful place to work
Completed Supervisory Leadership Training Program (Former Employee), East Chicago, INApril 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
