ACEP is the pits = Stay away or learn the hard way
Security (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 8, 2016
I worked Security and this place is a joke. Most, including the Director, are people that couldnt be hired anywhere else and certainly NOT in any of the 5 Star Casinos on the Strip.
The Operational Standards are a complete joke and unlike ANY "Security" (If you want to call it that) that I have EVER experienced to the point where the Panhandlers and Derelicts run the place coming and going as they please as they laugh in the faces of "Security".
I wouldnt even recommend this job for someone just starting out in Security as its NOT a professional environment and a really good place to obtain some bad habits due to the "training" and atmosphere.
A typical day at work is managing quality inspectors on quality related sorts for the Honda plants. Any time Honda has a quality issue, I am the contact for them in order to begin an inspection sort. I will then contact our scheduling department for staffing and train employees on these sorts. I have learned Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel with this job and have also gained managerial experience.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 3, 2015
A typical day of work was in the morning doing displays setup and switching stands with your co-workers every 30 minutes. I learned how to see every detail, management was strict however they were fair and co-workers were a pleasure to work with. Everyone got along well. I was fortunate enough to meet some life long friends. As for the hardest part of the job that would be keeping hydrated. The reason for that is your in the sun for hours and constantly having to drink water even when your not thirsty. Seeing and working with co-workers was the most enjoyable part, I'm big on being friends with my co-workers and being respectful.
When I go in rather it be a new project, I would start off be identifying the parts and part numbers. Then take pictures to write work instructions on how to properly and safely do the job. I've learned that the its always room to improve. Can't say much about management I don't see them often only talk through conference calls. My co worker are dependable because I can get them to see they can trust me and I'm always there for them if need be to listen and help solve issues on the job. The hardest part of the job is working in the heat and making sure everyone drinks plenty of water. The most enjoyable part of the job is completing a project and raising the bar in production numbers and seeing our output of parts.
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – July 1, 2015
A typical day at work consisted of inspecting automotive parts (door pull handles, car handles, etc.) for the eight hour shift. I learned what being a quality inspector consisted of ; prior to getting the position of being an inspector, I was a CNA and care giver, so the transition was not a challenge! I met awesome co-workers and supervisors, even the CEO treated us with respect and with friendliness. The overall experience was amazing and it was by far the easiest job I've had to date.
when there is a shortage of parts to inspect, hours are cut
IT Support specialist (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 1, 2014
I got hired, was given bad training by a supervisor that hated the job and was out the door anyway. Then I get let go because " I did not fit in". Manager is horrible. He got written up for continuing to postpone windows 7 upgrade and blames the IT techs for not getting it done. ACEP and stratosphere are a joke. I was left all by myself with no supervisor or lead tech being only 3 weeks on the job, and wonder why I failed their expectations. What a joke. The place is so bad and has such high turnover, every thursday they turn out 15-30 new hires weekly. They make it sound like they are the most wonderful company and hotel on the strip, but they are the worst.
free lunch that it is
low wages, clueless management, and idiot supervisors
Bartender (Current Employee) – Las Vegas – June 4, 2013
I usually start the day off by stocking the bar with product and glassware. Then I cut fruit and ice the wells including the service well. First I would serve the casino cocktail waitresses till the restaurant servers come in. When the restaurant is open i tend to the guests at the bar which sits twenty five guests. There is typically three servers, two cocktail servers and one lounge server through out my shift. I do tend to get overloaded during our four hour happy hour but I have a strong relationship with my management team and co-workers that we all pull together to create a great experience for our guests.
Inspector (Former Employee) – Muscle Shoals, AL – March 27, 2014
The day consisted of 12 hour shifts, I learned how to efficiently work with other people to complete tasks. Management wasn't actually around, my co-workers were awesome! The hardest part of the job would have to have been working the 12 hour shifts, the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and creating friendships in and outside the workplace.
Food and Beverage (Former Employee) – Las Vegas – January 22, 2014
My heart goes out the the dedicated and hard working union servers and bartenders who are given a less than fair opportunity to work in a potentially happy and lucrative environment. I witnessed unfair favoritism based on appearance and body type of female employees as well as the scheduling of certain bartenders in venues where they were not favored to be (In order to "push them out") so as to cause altercations. All of which actions go against culinary union by-laws and practices. I was ill advised by my superiors to not mention the going ons behind office doors in order to keep my own job out of jeopardy. Seeing as that will no longer be leverage against me, I plan to seek future counsel. In my time here I was utterly appalled by the lack of empathy and consideration for staff members by their direct superiors and witnessed the lowest morale, company wide, that I've ever experienced in this industry. A sad place to work. The turnover rate for management is massive for reasons both voluntary and mandated leaving nothing but a lackluster group of poorly experienced and unnecessarily egotistic, chauvinistic "men". My advice: avoid seeking employment at this establishment unless you are a glutton for punishment. Everyone is worth something and if you work here, you'll surely be treated like nothing. Good luck on the job search!
wonderful hr, the delight of working with great foh and boh hourly staff.
cut-throat, insecure persons among upper management, unsanitary edr conditions.
Server (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 5, 2014
The job was ok as long as a specific manager wasn't working! I learned that you can meet wonderful people within a short period of time. Some of the co-workers are very helpful and great to work with. The hardest part of the job was the GM!!! She is very unprofessional!!! Oh yeah did I mention she talks down to you and gets away with it because she is the general manager. Beware if you work for Roxy's in the Stratosphere....
