It's a good paycheck.
Pros: socializing was the best part of the job, . i met many great people, at parx casino and still miss many team members, . we were a team, and i feel to this day that i miss being there.
Cons: i needed more time off, and was told by human resources that if i took it, i might not have a job to return to, this was in august of last year...2012, after having serious complications from surgery. the casino industry needs healthy individuals, i am loyal and dedicated to my job, i left on good terms, without complaint.
Customer service is what I pride myself in. Parx casino is always doing their best to improve conditions. I inspired to teach table games and be in a department where I could be a part of the decision making. I felt the need to move upward, and expressed my request to educate to one of the Floor Supervisors, as I had taught in a previous casino. I have over 30 years of knowledge about the casino industry, and wanted to move ahead. The job demand and home demand were a challenge, for which I've always done both for many years. At times, I had to return as a homemaker for the sake of my family and children, and I needed more flexibility. The year before, I was hospitalized and was in serious condition. I know the rules of the casino and felt it wouldn't be fair to myself or Parx to continue if I felt the job could be detrimental to my health. I understand casino rules and signed up and agreed to their terms. I voluntarily left.
