Would not work there
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAJuly 14, 2018
Upper management are fat lazy people who do not care about their employees. Long hours for little pay and no raise or bonus difficult to get paid time off unless you are a director or in charge

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, MSJuly 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.
Pros
Pay is ok, pay for meals taken out of your check
Cons
Short breaks, break time is automatically taken even if u don't take a break, you have to pay for your meals

Relaxed, somewhat
Valet - Part-time (Current Employee) –  Biloxi, MSJuly 9, 2018
It's not a bad place to work. All the leads for each shift are very different. At times, it gets extremely busy. The very "dead". The guest can be very nice.
Pros
Pay ~$10 every pay period for discounts in Landry's...
Cons
No benefits for a year

Stressful workplace with poor coordination
FOOD AND BEVERAGE SUPERVISOR/ SERVER DUAL RATE (Former Employee) –  Biloxi, MSJuly 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.

Food and beverage management is terrible
Manager (Former Employee) –  Biloxi, MSJuly 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.

Great Boss
Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 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.
Pros
Great Boss
Cons
Pay

Fast paced cutthroat place to work
Server/Bartender (Current Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAJune 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
Pros
Discount program is awesome
Cons
The hours and the managers

casino

the casino was just like any other. One day I went to work and the doors were chained up. The state had closed them down because the owner was book making.

Golden Nugget Cage
CAGE CASHIER (Former Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAJune 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.
Pros
lunches
Cons
short breaks, underpaid

Stressful but Excited
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAJune 18, 2018
Stressful, exciting, and tightly managed are all words to describe Golden Nugget. Among all of this though enjoyable is not a word I'd use.

Management is a mess, can't agree between themselves.

IT Engineer I (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 14, 2018
There is always something to do and to learn new things. Co workers are always willing to help.
Sometimes the company has employee special events at the EDR.
Pros
Hour lunch breaks
Cons
Once allowed at the EDR

Not bad, but not great
Tech Support (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 14, 2018
A decent place to work, but little management support if you have trouble. They come down like a rock if you mess up. Always look over your shoulder to see if someone is watching.

The job atmosphere was great because the people you worked with but management was terrible. There was too much lack of work for managers. You basically did whatever you wanted.

Great place
Lead SURVEILLANE OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAJune 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.
Pros
Benefits and 401K
Cons
More of the hard works need to be recognized rather than its all in who you know

productive and fair
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Atlantic City, NJ 08401June 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.

Fast-paced, competitive, can be cut-throat, would not recommend as a career
Valet attendant (Former Employee) –  Lake Charles, LAMay 22, 2018
simply a part-time job to make ends meet. most positions are heavily tip-based which can be advantageous or not depending on position, schedule, weekends/holidays.
