Come for the benefits, leave because you're looking to better yourself
EMT (Former Employee) – Placerville, CA – October 1, 2016
I worked here in Security for about 4 years as an EMT. Worked the graves and the swings. I can't tell you how often you can be micromanaged as an EMT here by higher ups who know nothing of scope of practice here. I had been written up for requesting a Paramedic unit for guests presenting with signs of a heart attack, to having entire reports tossed out because it involved "VIPs".
I seen people fired for idiotic things, and horrible workers promoted. I was fired for a "poor guest service" review from a busy weekend with multiple calls for medical service, when, a few weeks prior, I had been given a guest service award. The only factor? Another potential employeer called for employment verification when I was trying to better myself and my family.
If you want to get into security, don't come here. They don't have guard card training and I don't see how that happens in a state that requires it. At the very least, Security is glorified "Guess Service". Which, don't get me wrong, guest service keeps places alive and people employeed, but call it what it is. If a serious threat happened? Observe and report and hope you aren't a poor chap driving in the garage when a gun is pulled and you hope your hand is quick enough to call on the radio and you can get back into your car quicker.
If you work here, go to slots. They make more part time in tips anyways.
Food, good benifits, made good friends when I worked here, kept my EMT current
Poor management, horible work/life balance, short staffed at times, no support from higher ups from complaints, casino lung
