My favorite job I have had to date

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
All in all I enjoyed working here. It is not a great work life balance as the casino is open 24/7 365 so there are a lot of rules with taking time off and working all shifts and holidays. They also should really pay all their employees more. I feel like for the work I did there I was underpaid.

Fun place to work

An amazing place to work. Great benefits, a meal each day, and the workplace is like family. The only downside for table games are the hours (typical in the casino setting).

Productive work environment. A fun place to work. Cares about their employees.

I am a former GSA. I absolutely loved working at Gun Lake Casino. Everyone was a team player. The tribe are wonderful people to work for. I was always proud to say "I work at Gun Lake Casino". I met alot of great people via coworkers and guests. Covid came and changed alot of things for many people. That is the only reason I left. I have many great memories from working at GLC.


Benefits, paid lunches/breaks, great shifts, bonuses, incentives room for growth, great atmosphere.

Easy job

Deal the cards and go home. Pretty simple job overnight hours are a requirement when starting. Free meals daily and the benefits are great. Paid break for 2 hours of your 8 hour day.


Free lunch, lots of breaks

Horrible, unless you’re tribal

The only good thing here is the pay and benefits. Doesn’t matter which department you’re in, you will deal with some type of harassment from other team members and management doesn’t seem to care. If you’re good at your job you get to do other team members jobs as well. Look elsewhere for work unless you’re desperate.

Not willing to answer as I have nothing nice to say anything as I cannot say anything nice except for their pay and benefits are amazing. Other than that look elsewhere if possible.


Excellent pay and benefits


Unless your tribal you'll likely not go far

Just a number

Greed has defined this property. Let ‘em do it in their own. Lots of perks means they can drag you through the dirt and it’s ok. Place fun to visit, just keep your money.

Lots of promises without any follow through

Don't expect to be promoted unless you're tribal or you're related to management. The pay is tricky, you've got a cook 2 and a cook 3 doing identical things but cook 3 makes substantially more. There is no difference in what they do and there is no explanation as to why.


Free meal, benefits


They'll run you till you die without a consideration for your well being.

Fun Workplace

It is a fun place to work for. Free shift meals. All full time employees get free health benefits and the hourly pay for tipped positions is higher than anywhere else I’ve ever worked.

Training department

They were very good about helping you grow no matter your job title. The training department was your biggest support and cheerleader. You always felt appreciated and worthy.

Good pay and benefits. Lots of personal drama

Good pay and benefits. Lots of personal drama. Management would rather punish everyone rather than talk to the people who are causing problems. Depending on shift. Management will throw you under the bus for their own gain.

Diversity and opportunities abound

Fun job with a great team. They host many events to encourage team member engagement. The pay is good, with annual performance based raises and an additional cost of living increase was just given to all employees again in October, 2022. Breaks are paid. Free meals and soft drinks on breaks. Uniform provided. FREE medical, dental and vision insurance. Quarterly bonus. Many additional incentives and contests throughout the year. A fun and busy work environment in the entertainment industry.


Free food. Paid breaks. Paid time off. Opportunity for advancement. Free health insurance!


Open 24/7: must work holidays, weekends, night shift

Gun Lake has some good perks and some negatives especially when want to move forward it seems if you are a good worker they want to let won't let you move forward they will keep you same department.


Free insurance and a free meal.


Supervision had partiality to certain people.

Busy work days

Busy work days. Some guests are friendly, some are a pain in the butt due to loosing money in gaming floor. Management was great and understanding. Loved working there.

High Stress, Floating Pay, Questionable Managment

Co-workers are very nice, but as a Table Games Dealer, 'Job Security' is, at best, a bad joke.Floor Supervisors are usually very good but anyone above that can be... questionable.Overall, the company's not bad to work for, but be prepared for long days on your feet with management demanding High Level Service while providing Average Pay and maybe Above Average benefits.

Constantly Changing Environment, and never on the same Page...

Gun lake Casino is Constantly Changing Rules and policies. Giving Each Department opportunity to Change the Policies to fit the Department how they see fit, making it hard for Employees to keep up. They say Gun lake Casino is Competitive pay but it is not! Usually $2.50 below starting wage for Skilled Employees.The communication here is Horrible with current technology. we should all be on the same page.


Free Insurance for full time employees, free meals, paid Breaks if you get one


Under staffed, under paid
