Pathetic excuse of a team environment
Food and beverage manager (Former Employee) –  Salamanca NYJanuary 29, 2015
this company is the type that puts their senior management above all and is willing to place blame for any and all incidents on employees at the shift manager level and below so not to look incompetent. Human resources and employee relations is said to be there to help and solve problems but sadly enough, the person who is easiest to terminate gets the bullet. The mere rumor of misconduct usually results in a suspension pending a lie of HR investigation until you are terminated. Do yourself and all friends you have to not waste the heartache in a position at the casino that you will give everything possible including your home and social life to with nothing more than an excuse in the end as to why they will eventually fire you. I personally have watched this happen many times in the past and present. I am ashamed to be known around the area as a devoted employee to this corporation.
Pros
promises of fun, friendly work life.
Cons
horrible pay, constant backstabbing, no support system for team members from management, will be forced to give up every aspect of your life.

The worst place to work!
Slave (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, New YorkOctober 12, 2012
They have drained the community work force and will promise you anything to get you to work for them. Great benefits. However if you are being paid less then $9.00 an hour after taxes and benefits your making minimum wage, equalling out to &14,000.00 per year. Which is the poverty level in the United States. They will ask you to sign your life away, you have no legal recourse for anything that happens to while you work there, up to and including accidental death. Management will pit people against each other to get results and their end of the year bonus. You will be harassed and bullied by your desperate and needy co-workers if you show an ounce of self-esteem or initiative in getting ahead in the company and when you stand up a defend yourself you will be accused of creating drama, having a verbal outburst, and being insubordinate. Because the "corporation comes first." You are collateral that is easily replaced.
Cons

NOT WORTH YOUR TIME unless going for college credits only after leave
former employee SGC (Former Employee) –  Seneca Gaming CorporationMarch 30, 2014
Having worked there for a number of years Had no time for myself, nor did I learn much of anything this would be a bad career move for someone going to college, unless you start as a internship there, However after you are complete with your internship be done with the company. Moving on to something better and different. Management there only care about themselves get a better bonus then a entry-level employee or dual-Supervisor. All there training and was a waste of time. it seem great at the beginning, but then they don't care about prefer and take there time getting things done. Co-worker were hard workers and no one seem equal. As a Team. So don't wait your time working there. Not a great career move.
Pros
free food, benefits
Cons
no career advancement, no prefers, no time for family or social life, not a college career move unless want experience for college credit only

Cut throat , unhealthy environment
Food & Beverage management (Current Employee) –  NiagaraJuly 10, 2014
Some of the worst working conditions and environment you could put your self into this day in age. Smoke blown in your face daily. Stress level threw the roof with constant eyes and pressure on you from directors and above to cover themselves on their own poor decisions. Entire company cuts corners on just about everything and try's to portray a high class gaming environment. Have seen new outlets crumble within months because of poor planning and rushed deadlines. Some of the rudest patrons in the service industry. Employee moral at an all time low throughout entire company.
Pros
free mediocre below par food
Cons
your life if you work here. 2nd hand smoke . poor upper management

good entry level job... not a career move... just a job
IT (Former Employee) –  Niagara falls, NYFebruary 25, 2013
Good way to learn basic IT troubleshooting and some select advance systems.
Worked here for a few months and noticed that the job was very different from most IT jobs.
Very separated inside the department which makes it difficult to resolve most issues. Problems can become an issue of who did it rather than how to solve it.
Finger pointing is an epidemic that makes it hard for the"teamwork" thing to work.
This job is no stranger to scapegoating... You Will be under paid for your work and taken advantage of.... Burnout highly possible.
Pros
free lunch, gym, healthcare
Cons
no time to enjoy the pros, pay is low

I MUST SAY THAT IVE HEARD NOTHING BUT BAD THINGS ABOUT WORKING AT SENECA NIAGARA. BUT IN MY DEPARTMENT I WILL GIVE THEM CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE.

I WOULDN'T MOVE TO ANOTHER DEPARTMENT, THE GRASS ISN'T ALWAYS GREEN ON THE OTHER SIDE
Pros

Productive and profitable gaming industry.
Beverage Department (Current Employee) –  SalamancaDecember 14, 2012
Hiring mostly part time employees, but will promise full time eventually.
Pros
benefits- take advantage of them while you can.
Cons
employees are always plotted against each other, you will sign policy and procedures papers twice a week, policy changes from week to week, shift managers must write employees up on a daily basis, whether it is valid or hearsay, very stressful to watch server's receive monies for over serving alcoholic beverages, micromanagement to which policies adhere to which employees, always watch your back!

Mismanaged -poor company
Former employee (Former Employee) –  AllDecember 4, 2015
Poor company to work for. It is a job, not a career Management level has people in power that are there due to ethnic background verses actually knowing how to manage. There is blatant discrimination! Their own "handbook" states they are equal opportunity but the next page says they give preference to certain ethnic backgrounds. Bottom line is there I little room for advancement.
There are a few perks here and there but not worth the time.
Pros
A job
Cons
Compensation low, benefits are mediocre, management in general

Can be fun and exciting, however much more is required of the salaried employee
manager (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYDecember 9, 2014
This can be a very fun and exciting place to work. However, if you are a salaried employee they expect you to work overtime while treating you like an hourly employee. Management demands a lot of its employees without holding anyone in management accountable.
Great opportunity for learning and getting training if you are Enrolled Seneca and have pull to get you a good position and into the training programs.
Pros
free lunch and paid lunch hour
Cons
salaried employees treated like hourly

Productive and interesting workplace
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYMay 10, 2013
It is a good place to work. Opportunities are available. Co-workers are good and mostly reliable. I have learned patience and much more independence due the hours I currently work. Upper management does not really know me, which is a shame since I too am an important cog in the wheel.
Pros
good benefits, team atmosphere
Cons
advancement is somewhat limited

IT Site Manager, Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYDecember 7, 2012
Working for and with the members of the Seneca Nation in Seneca Gaming was a very positive experience; very professional; very customer focused; always striving to be the best. The Nation members that I dealt with can only be described as a class act all the way.
