Cage Cashier (Former Employee) – Anza, CA – December 4, 2018
Thrown into an environment with little training and no support. You are responsible for variances beyond your control (coin machine inaccurate, jetscan money counters off & responsible for others variances) Your schedule is an estimate and you are often kept late. You're on call 24 hours a day. The staff is nice but talks behind your back. Be prepared for power outages, faulty machines and constant issues.
Low cost meals & tips
Long hours, irregular schedules & faulty equipment
Back of the house (Current Employee) – Anza, CA – August 2, 2018
Over the years since I have been here, the executive team is the best it has been. Easy going, hardworking individuals that make the workplace enjoyable. For myself personally, I am able to learn and advance. I have been promoted several times in under the 4 years that I have been here so I am a testament that there is certainly room for advancement. I have also seen plenty others here start off in floor positions and be promoted to supervisor and management positions. What I enjoy the most is the environment is easygoing and those I work with are real team players. If you are a hard worker, don't mind a scenic route to work and you are a team player, Cahuilla is the place for you.
Annual employee incentive in Dec, benefits, teamwork environment, room for growth.

Supervisors only care about the friends they hire in the Accounting Dept. They raise problems for people that are not their high school friends. Not a professional work environment. A lot of unethical poor behavior and practices from the Controller and Accounting Manager. They cannot follow Company policies as well and cry to the Human Resources Dept. and unbelievably get away with what they do. It’s all a triangle.
There are better people in other companies away from this casino
Officer (Current Employee) – Anza, CA – July 14, 2018
Working at Cahuilla Casino Has been a tough ongoing experience. There is not much room for advancement and the Management is difficult. I do not prefer to work here however I don't have much options because of my physical location. It is close to home. That is the main reason why most employees work here.
Discounts on Gas and food. Anual Christmas party. PTO acrual.
Difficult Management. Heat. No room for promotion or advancement.
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Anza, CA – September 2, 2018
A typical day was very busy, running from the minute you got there till the time you left, which was a 12 to 14 hour day. I was on call 24-7. The hardest part of the job was the time spent to and from and the day there, I never saw my family.
Unless your a local its not worth the drive, you will spend more on gas and the time away from home, and if you ARE a local/native your a suspect! If you are looking to enter the casino industry however this is probably a good start, as long as your customer service skills can handle four people a day. Actually dont worry about customers, or servicing them, you wouldnt want to stand out. Job Security, is like a revolving door and management much like other casinos is like a good ole boys club. Gave this place years of my life in which i would like to get back.
Department of Public Safety Manager (Current Employee) – Anza, CA – March 20, 2017
Cahuilla is a small close knit casino with Low Stress and a happy environment. The Management is friendly and easy to work for. Cahuilla Casino is a great place to work if you have never worked in a Casino before and want to learn entry level skills.
Cage Cashier (Former Employee) – Anza, CA – September 15, 2012
worked with KCMS system,exchange and payout vary large amout of cash,did cash advance.What I have learned from the casino is the varies of machines such as,counting and coin machine because of the amout of cash I had to worked with.As my relation with the co-workers,we all worked together vary well.We all tryed to help out each other to get the job done.The hardest part of the job was they were always having trouble holding on to management so we had numorous management in my time of employment.The hardest part of the job was working the 60 hour a week and on different shift.When the cage was short on staff,I would have some shift on grave and swing shift,Then the next week I might have early morning shift and some swing and some grave,It got to be to much after awhile.It takes a toll on your body.
Food and Beverage Manager (Former Employee) – Anza, CA – December 9, 2017
Being in charge of running the kitchen, lounge and restaurant, I found it very rewarding and challenging. I worked very closely with the accounting staff conducting inventories and food, beverage and labor cost controls.
Knowing that our guests left happier than they were when they were they came in.
Cash Cage Cashier (Former Employee) – Anza, CA – November 9, 2015
I was hired on here, then after some time of working here, I was embarrassed to be a part of this company. Management created problems for the employees by not allowing employees to pay Jackpot winnings to patrons. There was No management on Graveyard shifts, so when there was a Jackpot, we had to call management and wait for them to drive an hour and a half or longer to get to the Casino to pay angry patrons. Terrible place to work!!!
Disfunction in management/Makes patrons wait 6 hours for there Jackpot winning
Slot Host (Former Employee) – Anza, CA – July 10, 2017
Ability to work at your own pace, with the exception that work is completed and customers are satisfied. Management is minimal during graveyard shifts. They do have a lot of employee incentives, but recognition would have been better.
Food and beverage (Former Employee) – Anza Valley, CA – June 12, 2016
Unless you live in Anza you are treated like an outsider by your fellow employees the managers have no control over their personnel and are afraid to speak up to somebody that needs to be put in check. As a new employee I was treated very bad by the girls that I work with and then they are so short-handed you are expected to work 60 plus hours a week different shifts which takes a toll on your body and family life.
It was a pretty Drive
Managers need to learn how to manage to keep the turnover low
