Front House Food and Beverage Cashier (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 26, 2015
Pros: quarterly bonuses, excellent training, easy access to answers for any questions
Cons: to hot in work area sometimes, work home balance
A typical day at work starts with a friendly smile and conversation from fellow employees on a game plan for the shift at hand. Off to work for the day begins stepping right into the work that needs to – more... be done. Teamwork is wonderful, as we pull together to execute an excellent work day. Although as in all jobs, problems can arise. The management and staff are fully trained and equipped to handle these problems almost flawlessly. The hardest part of my job was being away from my family most all of the time. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping customers have a wonderful and enjoyable experience. I also admired the way that there was a constant guidance to help employees all day, everyday, from not only management but fellow co-workers. We where always there to help each other. That is one of the reasons I think it is so unique. – less
Team Relations Manager (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 24, 2015
Pros: We work for our team members!
Cons: Not enough time in the day.
Building relationships with Team Members is the ultimate reward in this role. Understanding everyone's needs and motivations are different supports having a "no door" policy. Team Members describe me as "fair"; what an honor. I enjoy learning and growing from our Team Members.
Steward (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 21, 2015
Pros: Team work and fun staff
Cons: Absent Credit System
Sugarhouse casino as a steward can be tough without team effort, however, the team members that I was fortunate to work with produced enthusiastic energy, causing productive shifts. It helped me that I – more... wanted to be the best at what I did as a steward, which motivated my co-workers to do better. I've learned a new meaning of teamwork everyday and developed a good deal of communication skills from them. The stewarding manager always complimented me on my consistency, team effort, reliability, as well as other attributes by which we've gotten along well. Although the hardest part was maintaining the energy and fatigue from constant lifting, fast walking, running up/down stairs and dishwashing, I always enjoyed ending the day knowing that I gave my 110% effort. It was always nice to hear that from my co-workers/managers too – less
Great environment with constant employee events and bonuses
Security Officer (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 3, 2015
Pros: Quarterly bonuses, break room, buffet
Cons: low pay
I love working for SugarHouse where the employees feel appreciated and there is a strong connection between management and its employees. The pay could be better but I still love going to work anyways.
Sous Chef (Current Employee), Philadelphia PA 19082 – October 28, 2014
Pros: customers love food
Cons: many outlets to run
My day is always hectic. I run 5 outlets with 11 cooks. They are fun to be around and I have the pleasure of teaching and molding them. My coworkers are different, I share daily conversations and work with them. The most enjoyable part of the day is when the customers are satisfied and have many compliments about my food.
Outtide Guard (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 2, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay
Cons: poor supervisors, harassment, mixed instructions, too many bosses, lack of consideration of employeee dignity, poor health conditions, upper managment no support
In a nutshell this place is fine if you don't have to go up against vindictive, harassing managers and even being a new employee if you don't know the ropes. In my short less than 2 month employment there – more... were many a employee who were very unhappy with the treatment by supervisors but it was not until by reporting on an simple incident that i felt reflected on me perhaps not being able to do my job that i experienced what many had warned me that this place is not the happy family it's promoted to be. Upper Management will turn a blind eye to any harassment and basically show you the door if your not happy. The talk the talk at orientation as to how you can reach out even giving cards with numbers for ANY problems be it personal, work, financial stresses, but its really a lot of bull. I will say that prior to my incident i was very proud to be employed here..the positives are great benefits, good pay and in some minor ways i did see an occasion of them showing appreciation in a general way to their employees as a whole!. But let me say that the traumatic demeaning experience of having your dignity especially being a senior at this establishment well..i felt i had to leave mind you i did nothing poor as to job performance! (with absolutely no options as to moving me to a shift or other placement within another department) or perhaps stick this out under bully tactics and with having my mental and physical health, no one has the simple guts and professionalsm standards to simply tell all involved to quit the intimidation and just everyone do their job. You also get mixed signals from their many supervisors and managers as to what to do at your job even to the point of the GM giving you instructions to follow and a low level employee telling you do otherwise and the GM of all people should see him!! LOL. What i went through here is the very worst i've ever experienced in having a vindictive, intimidating environment and the worst part is that its is either condoned or turned a blind eye too. I also would suggest joining a union, as they give a long dissertation about the cons of doing at their orientation.. i do feel you need at least another option when you are at the point of having to leave a job that you had performed well and due to others lack of professionalism and you doing nothing 'wrong' you walk into a situation unknowing that rocks their boat. – less
Casino Table Games Supervisor (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 19, 2014
Pros: 401k, healthcare, experience
Cons: rough crowd, bad air due to the second hand smoke and air ventilation, parking lot to small, bad food
The sugarhouse casino is still under ways we do not have rooms or a garage some of the offerings of other casinos. Sugarhouse makes up for what they don't have with there gambling experience. There are – more... only fifty table games there and there always full people gamble there for extreme amounts of time. I did enjoy the challenges that came along with opening a new casino and watching the plans unfold. I would work there again – less

Not a bad place to work. But not a great place either
Player Service Agent (Former Employee), Philadelphia, pa – March 13, 2013
Sugarhouse casino was a tough place to advance. Had no job security. I worked there for two and half years and i did everything for them. Things that went above and beyond my job description. And i was fired for an unauthorized cigerette break. Plus the beneifys stunk
Casino worker (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – September 5, 2012
Pros: paid for lunch break
Cons: low pay, expensive health care, incredible turnover
Fellow employees are great and most are easy to work with. Management team from GM down are the worst I ever worked for...they have no respect for the people who do the every day work in Casino. The poor economy is the only thing which keeps most employees here. Consider this just a temp job till you find something better
