Audit Clerk (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 1, 2015
Having worked in several different departments over 25 years I always felt that most of the employees and management were trying their best to make the Riviera the best it could be even though it was a major task at times. The possibility for advancement and promotion was always there . Good cooperation between personal in different departments was the norm . Even when times were lean and management had to make harsh changes in cutting personal and benefits the overall feeling I had was that it was going to get better and it did .
free lunch, chance for advancement, friendly people
Security supervisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas nv – October 16, 2013
I worked here for five years in security, four years as an officer and 1 year as a supervisor. We went through three directors while I was there. The owners and executives do not care about their employees. There are people in security that had worked there for 10 years and never got a raise in pay, that's crazy. 12 bucks an hour to deal with the scum of all scum on the strip, but the "execs" get a big fat bonus at the end of the year. They do have an edr but you need to bring your own food, ridiculous. Some of the people there were good, nice people, the others were no better than the miscreants we had to kick out. The director of security is horrible and two faced. Like I said in the title do not work here, there are much better casinos to work at in this city.
Some good people. Security officers do their jobs.
Security Sargent (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 5, 2015
I worked in Security and we went through 3 Security Directors in the 4 yrs I worked there. That alone should tell you all you need to know. The place has definitely seen its better days and is just hanging on trying to maintain. When there are so many other nice Casinos to solicit, why anyone would go there is beyond me. When new owners/management came in they were caught rigging a big payout slot to not payout the grand prize by the Director who had been there over 10 yrs. (You can read more about this by doing a wed search) Heads rolled from the top down on that incident including me. Avoid this place. You can work for a private Security company and make the same pay without any of the hassles that comes with this place.
Surveillance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 27, 2015
I worked for the Riviera for less then two years. In that time I had the luxury of working with a great bunch of guys (and 1-gal). We often caught allot of advantage players and made it a comfortable, no-pressure place to work. The original manager was a great guy. We then had a director that oversaw our department and let up take carry on as usual. The hardest part of the job was the antiquated equipment making reviews and playbacks often difficult at best.
Overall, I would still be there if the place had not been sold and the employees laid off.
I worked there twice once in the 90's and a week ago bad mgmt bad f & B
Pub Cook (Former Employee) – Queen Victoria Pub – August 2, 2013
horrible place to work, F and B is rude they give you know help, you work multiple stations with low pay, this is the hardest job I ever had, busted my butt and new chef came in and termed me after knowing me 2 days, I have to balance my break time with caring enough about the guy who relieved me to stay a few minutes and help him out of the weeda and not get wrote up for it, I loved my co workers the servers were beautiful and nice and I miss my routine but I would not recommend working in there
Appreciated the opportunity to have long term, stable employment.
Food Server (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 24, 2013
The Riviera gave me the opportunity to learn the different aspects of food service and how to take care of guests. I learned how to be flexible with a schedule, how to get along with co-workers when things can be stressful. The hardest part of the job was being on my feet so much. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and being able to give them a pleasant dining experience.
ASST SLOT SHIFT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 13, 2012

Visitor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, Nevada – April 4, 2015
whats the point? They're shutting it down anyways. People loved coming here, I would hear that a lot. People loved coming here on New Years as well but now it's going to be shut down and made into what a parking lot?
