Bad Management
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  South Coffeyville, OKOctober 21, 2018
Management would call you down if you stopped to talk to another co-worker....even after making multiple rounds around the casino. You push chairs in, wipe down games and keep all trash/glasses picked up. Take care of machine malfunctions. Some employees got away with talking their whole shift and you have to do 3x the work meaning you had the whole casino to work. Sad when guests stop you and ask why out of 4 workers why are you the only one working!
Pros
Getting paid while on lunch - Couldn't leave; Great Benefits
Cons

Overall great company
Equipment Coordinator (Current Employee) –  APG, MDJanuary 3, 2019
Company offers SUPERB benefits, lowest healthcare/dental/vision package I've had and will tell future job-seeker's to apply. Work environment / co-workers (GOV and CTR) are friendly and helpful. Plenty of outlets to progress career wise.
Pros
Monthly luncheon, Recognition/Awards, friendly enviornment, diversity

Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Tahlequah, OKApril 28, 2018
When I started there years ago I thought I would retire from there it was a great place to work back then just little badly run. A few years later, things started changing for the worse. Now you cant even take a lunch break, there’s always someone looking over shoulder making sure you do your job and treating you like garbage no matter what you do. Annual Evaluations are rigged they run on a scale of 1-4 ( legend has it a 5 is possible.) you absolutely will not get above a 3 (meets standards) at least no one in my dept. ever did. Random incidents that you have no recollection of will be brought up during an evaluation proving that your a bad employee and driving chances of decent raise into the ground.

The Cafe has great food it’s a shame employees aren’t good enough eat the food from there! Management is basically styled after Walmart, but has become worse.
Pros
Decent pay, good benefits
Cons
No support from mgt. No respect whatsoever from mgt.

Senior Scientist (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXOctober 18, 2018
Excellent company ... CNB was a partner with my previous company. Similar culture and benefits. Seamless transition between the two companies and no impact on customer support.

Terrible Management/Gaming Commission treats you like criminals
Server (Former Employee) –  Siloam Springs, ARSeptember 11, 2018
The Chef, Food and Beverage Manager, Steakhouse Manager and a few other managers were all fired and walked out of the casino. Either they had huge egos because of their position or they were incompetent. The quality of people you work with is low because of the casino's hiring process. It takes a month to get someone hired and by the time they're offered the job, they already have another one, so they got a lot from the bottom of the barrel who would either never show up or show up and work a week or so and never be seen again. The Gaming Commission just assumes you're trying to steal and watches every move you make, when in reality it's the casino stealing money from the players because it doesn't pay out what it's supposed to pay.
Pros
The schedule
Cons
Management (lack of it)

Intern (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKApril 28, 2018
I saw firsthand the inter-workings of the largest native american owned business entity in the world. CNB is a great company to work for, and if the salary were proper, I would consider taking a career after school.
Pros
Challenging
Cons
No restaurants near by

Lazy people and poor management
EVS Attendant (Former Employee) –  Sallisaw OklahomaNovember 12, 2018
No communication and no accountability for employees who don’t do their job! Most stand around while very few continue working. They expect you to pick up the slack for those that don’t pull their weight!

Managers and supervisors seem to not have the experience or any kind of decent leadership to even be in their positions. Unless you’re a brown noser you don’t have the chance to move up. Majority don’t like it there, its like a prison sentence. It’s only good for an easy paycheck.

This company doesn’t know the meaning of teamwork.

Sallisaw Casino.
Pros
It’s an easy paycheck.
Cons
Too many to list but I will say I wouldn’t recommend anyone to work for this company.

uncooperative wrokplace
Valet (Former Employee) –  Catoosa, OKSeptember 26, 2018
would just use this company for a temporary job until you find a better job. If you need a schedule change you might as well not ask because before they even think about give you a change it could be months. they also have to hire someone to take your current position which is more difficult than you think because turn over is so high. trying to get off graveyard? good luck. management is slow and has no drive.

No Job Security
Contractor (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 31, 2018
No job security. The compensation and the benefits are great. It is what lured me away from my previous job. But the job security is non-existent and management doesn't seem to do enough to secure your job.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Catoosa, OKMay 11, 2018
I always had something to work on or someone to help. I learned to communicate with people in ways that i didnt know how to before, to be patient with people even when they are getting mad. the management was awesome. They were always willing to help you in any way they could. The culture of the work place was pretty straight forward and laid back in its own ways. The hardest part of the job was to be able to keep guest calm when they were having an issue. The most enjoyable part of the job was to be able to interact with the guest in a friendly manner and still be getting your job done.

Going Downhill
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Catoosa, OKSeptember 10, 2018
The company has recently hired outside individuals into upper management positions. These individuals have made it a very hostile work environment, cutting long term employees, forcing retirement, and using cut throat tactics.
Pros
No longer any pros to working here.
Cons
No longer enjoyable work place.

Helpdesk Temporary position
Helpdesk agent (Former Employee) –  Fort Collins, COMay 7, 2018
Many of the previous ratings are for CNB and working in positions other than the temporary Helpdesk position that is being advertised. The Temporary Helpdesk positions are located in both Tulsa and in Fort Collins. These are Helpdesk/Call Center type positions within a subsidiary company called CSG not CNB. The employees are treated with respect and the environment is casual but fast-paced. The other employees were great to work with. This is a perfect job for a college student who is not traveling home for the summer, wants to learn something new and enjoys working with a great team. The pay is good and you are not flipping burgers! Learned about the EPA and how to help the end users. Not very technical but you aren't selling anything either. All in all a great experience!
Pros
great staff and management, casual and friendly environment. Decent pay
Cons
Non except it is hard to get on permanent as everyone likes it there
