Ok place to work. Didn't offer advancement, no interview hired by temporary service, employment only lasted one month.
Swing shift housekeeper (Former Employee) – Biloxi, MS – July 11, 2018
Didn't really get the overall experience because I was hired through a temporary service, but I was just put into a position then took out of the position. Wasn't told about any policies. Gotta work through the temporary service for a year before getting hired through the actual company.
Pay is ok, pay for meals taken out of your check
Short breaks, break time is automatically taken even if u don't take a break, you have to pay for your meals
FOOD AND BEVERAGE SUPERVISOR/ SERVER DUAL RATE (Former Employee) – Biloxi, MS – July 8, 2018
I worked at the golden nugget for almost 8 years. It used to be the isle for the first four years I was there then it became the Golden Nugget. There was poor coordination but the staff I worked with was awesome and super friendly and became my family so I have mixed emotions about this place. The work environment was stressful and so poorly coordinated that no night of work ever went smoothly as a server.
Manager (Former Employee) – Biloxi, MS – July 2, 2018
Demeaning. Micromanaging. No advancement for the good employees, only the ones that do not know how to do their job. They treat people very unfair and they are not consistent with policies and procedures.
Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 30, 2018
Great Boss but it seems like nobody cares. It is a typical work area where everybody knows everything about everybody. The pay is not fair as Engineers should get about the same pay. Network Engineer II should get the same as Systems Engineer II. This is not true there. They Lowball your pay than promise the world.
Server/Bartender (Current Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – June 27, 2018
I loved it when the money is there, management was very sctrict and less personal. Very hard to take off work. You sign your life away when you sign the papers to hire on. Holidays and weekends are at the nugget. But when the money is there the money is good
CAGE CASHIER (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – June 20, 2018
A typical work day is an 8 hour shift of cashing out casino patrons. I have learned how to work around and manage very large sums of money without facing any temptation. Management is ok depending on how they feel about you. There is very evident favoritism shown. The hardest part of the job is learning how to navigate the systems properly and being able to multitask on busy nights. The most enjoyable part of the job is the knowing that the job we do is actually an important factor in the running of the entire casino.
Vice President (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – June 12, 2018
make it their idea and its a good one your ideas are always bad ideas upper management is tough -never time for fun however when there is recognition for a good job like manager of the quarter the GM is never present.
Lead SURVEILLANE OPERATOR (Current Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – June 7, 2018
Although there are many departments I will say overall Golden Nugget is a great place to work at and meet new people daily. Just like any job, it isn’t perfect and there are times when bad days can happen but if you enjoy what you do then it’s just a bad day, don’t let the negativity of others change the way you feel about your position.
Benefits and 401K
More of the hard works need to be recognized rather than its all in who you know
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Atlantic City, NJ 08401 – June 4, 2018
The staff were really nice, the lunch was free and most of the time good, the casino was staffed well and the building was clean. The pay rate was only $10 a hour, which makes it impossible to survive.
