Great work environment with friendly staff and management
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – December 22, 2015
Woking at MGM was a experience I'll never forget. The team at MGM were not only my friends but became part of my family. A typical day at work was very busy. MGM is the largest hotel in the United States and you could feel that on a daily basis. Ive learned many things at MGM but the thing that stands out the most is patients. Our management team was always there to keep us involved and motivated. I would have to say the hardest part of working at the MGM for me was when when it was slow and during Grand Garden Arena fight nights. When it's slow I can get a bit anxious as i'm always looking for something to do. During fight nights it seemed there was always a curve ball around the corner, however that's when I learned the most. Being able to see and meet a wide scale of people from all over the world was a wonderful part of the job. Woking at the front desk and being our guests first interaction with any of the MGM staff allowed me to ensure that they were able to start their experience out the right foot.
Great paid time off program, flexible scheduling, and location near to my residence.

As a company, MGM Mirage (now MGM Resorts International) is a good employer. There are opportunities at many casinos, but it is not without headaches and politics from time to time. That is expected of large companies.
Server/Waiter (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 22, 2015
a typical day at work would be clocking in and clocking out and doing some side work to get our restaurant ready to go and then going to break with a beautiful lunch room with a free meal with anything you could imagine except no surf n turf . I learned to work with different types of people but knowing we were there for all the same reasons. Made new friends and became family friends...I saw young people get married and start their own families,,I loved my job at MGM.. Now for the most part..Upper mgmt were good people . They did care..They even cared about our health and had a workout room set up for us. The hardest part of my job was if my guest was not happy. The best part of my job was the people I worked with who are now my lifelong friends. I miss my job at MGM
Special Event Coordinator (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 25, 2015
I truly enjoyed every minute I worked at MGM Grand. Everyone I worked with was so easy to get along with the communication within the company is great. MGM Resorts truly wants people to succeed. The only reason I am no longer at MGM Grand is because I needed to relocate to Los Angeles
VIP Host (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 28, 2015
Working with the MGM Mirage was a great opportunity to be introduce to new surrounding and people. Everyday was different as to the different situations that are placed to different people who make this job exciting and fun.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 13, 2015
The environment was outdoors it was fun the people there were fun friendly and they were very respectful. I worked with a lot of kids that were in high school so there were a lot of energy a lot of people actually helping out and working together. While I worked there the company treated us as equals nobody was treated any different, nobody looked down at you. I don't have much bad to say about this job accept there were a lot of childish antics going on but I guess that's what happens when its majority of high school kids. Overall it was a fun workplace to be around but it would be better with more money.
Entertaining, innovating, creating interrealtionships among guest and employees in a diverse envirnment.
Beverage Cocktail Services Manager (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 14, 2015
A typical day starts with a property walk of all venues, greeting employees and guest. Setting up staffing levels for the day in all 26 venues managing over 600 beverage employees. Ensuring that venues and employees are in compliance, disciplinary actions and financials for all venues. The most difficult part of the job is going home as everything is still going, it never ends in a city that never sleeps.
Wonderful organization with core values and oppertunities
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 1, 2015
Working in the Legal Collection Department was interesting and fulfilling work. I was very proud to say that worked at the MGM. I felt secure in my position, but history has shown that no job guarantees job security. It all comes down to the bottom dollar. If it can be outsourced cheaper, even a company like MGM will do it with no advance warning or considered impact to their employees. Advancement opportunities are there with excellent education opportunities, depending on where you currently are in the company. I was denied education opportunities in accounting because my manager felt it was not job related.
