Pros: amazing pay, amazing benefits, easy job
Cons: horrible hours, bad favoritism, horrible middle management
Amazing pay. Started off as a Venetian Coordinator in Guest Services, full time, $18hr., amazing benefits, free benefits, generic prescription free, hands down amazing pay and benefits.
This job was fairly easy.
I did anything from dispatching luggage to being at the GS podium upstairs in sight of the breath taking views..
This job was a miracle for me, especially being new to Las Vegas.
During the first week I became friends with many coworkers and they had advised me that it is not the best place to work for at times but they are only there for the pay and to provide for their family.
I wondered why this was and thought to myself no that will never be me.
I been realized a couple months in that when you are bottom of seniority you have the scraps of hours I am talking about overnight shift swing shift and many times over time but the only problem is there's not much life hours that they give you between the shift but I still continue to do so to provide for myself and my fiance at the time.
I thought to myself if I only had a child would I be completely miserable with the hours it did not matter how good of a worker or team member you would call I was I would still end up with horrible hours.
Even if I switched positions, you start at the bottom which is even worse than you are right now.
I also realized that the executive director has daytime hours and is not paying any attention to middle management all of middle management are on different pages. Managers are not following the guidelines and the rules as you would call it, and it is extremely confusing and difficult – more... knowing that you cannot change something that is not in your power.
This company is far too big for my knowledge.
Management " party" with coworkers have clicks and gossip just as bad as anybody else it is almost like high school, but I stayed with my head up high and did not go in that favouritism route that everyone else got caught in.
I personally advise you that anybody and I mean anybody with the brains just as good as a dog can be promoted to management.
Its all in who you know, not who you are
As a team member, you are also allowed to know anybody and be related to anybody that works for this company which actually is not professional at all.
The company actually suggests that you know somebody in order to even get the job in which I did know somebody.
This whole situation really got to me. All the affairs between co workers, gossip, and ultimate favoritism depressed me. When I first began working for this company my only goal was to advance higher, seeing what was in store for me I did not want to be management anymore
If you end up working for this company I should just to keep your head up high and start to mingle nicely with all managers. – less
