All in all - a better place to work with a degree.
Cons: health care and benefits packages not worth the hassle any longer, disgruntled employees, short-sightedness, breaking laws and behaving unethically.
For someone that is a lower-tiered employee such as myself (as we are considered, at least) we are just another pair of hands. The only redeeming quality of the casino was the health insurance and benefits packages that they used to offer, but so far the cost of maintaining the new packages are no longer feasable.
A typical day at work at this place as a cook in the prep kitchen is to be able to have good time management, be able to multitask, keep up on paperwork, and also do the necessary cooking for all external vendors on a need basis.
What I learned from this place remains to be seen in any sort of positive light. I feel that I am a very strong employee, capable of taking care of business and doing whatever I can for the business, but that it goes on to blind eyes. Management does what they can for the business, but severely lacks most people skills to be able to bridge the gap between business and employee's personal needs.
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting all the fellow coworkers and making new friends along the way.
