Great place, but IT management is terrible
IT Support Technician (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee WISeptember 25, 2017
The management creates a hostile and unprofessional environment. the team does good work, even though they are treated horribly. The idea of conformity and obeyance through fear is the lay of the land

Nice place to work like any job communication was our biggest problems.
Security Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  1721 West Canal StreetAugust 24, 2017
I learned how to deal with people that became frustrated by attending a verbal judo class (tactical communication)

Well management wasn't to bad just didn't communicate far as passing on information that happen on other shifts.

Native culture but I love the environment.

The hardest part about my jobs is seeing people being treated unfair and I have no words to defend them.

The favorite part about my job was dressing up in a shirt and tie addressing issues in a professional manner.
Pros
We have nice food selection and the prices are reasonable.

Extremely great place to work with terrific benefits and amazing health care
Chef (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIAugust 14, 2017
Everyday is an amazing experience to get to learn something new, either about yourself or your job. Management takes there time with training you on what you need to know, there's no added unwanted pressure. The pay is amazing and everyone throughout the casino get a raise every year no matter the position.
Pros
There's an employee restaurant on the 3rd floor with unbelievable prices on a full meal.
Cons
If you work on the casino floor, our guest our allowed to smoke which can be a danger to some.

Extremely stressful
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIAugust 12, 2017
Somedays are better than others but you typically deal with rude customers who usually get away with berating the employees. Pay is lower than local hotels in the area, which is horrible for the work environment and customers employees are subjected to daily. Management doesn't support, praise or show appreciation of any sort to its workers. Benefits are subpar. Training is laughable for this position, you're never properly trained and its only 1 week and you're on your own when it should be at MINIMUM 2 weeks. Coworkers are AMAZING people who are overworked, underpaid and underappreciated which is why the turnover rate is extremely HIGH (I've personally witnessed 20 people leave the position in the short span of working there)(Front desk requires 12 people to be fully staffed, we were NEVER fully staffed for more than 2 months at a time.) Thick skin and a strong mind are two attributes one should have to be able to deal with any position at the Potawatomi organization. I can say that working there has prepared me for any job/career in my future. For that I am thankful.
Pros
Discounted tickets for attractions
Cons
Low pay, draining environment

W. Canal St, Security Line Officer (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJuly 18, 2017
Typical day at work was getting ready for work in the locker room and make sure customers are following guidelines. I learned a lot about myself and working under pressure. Management was real cool to me. The culture was fun and entertaining. Hardest part was dealing with the second hand smoke. Enjoyable part was meeting different people.
