Server/Waiter (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS – February 9, 2019
Upon hiring we were told this new restaurant Dockside Deli would be doing a lot of business. We were expecting 1000 or more guests in our restaurant a day. After 6 months at best we did 350 for the day. The veteran servers left, leaving us newer ones hoping we could make more money. Most days we brought home 20 bucks after tipping out the busser staff, that did very little work, if any. Also the bartender had to get tip money. Supervisors didn't know much or didn't care. Side duties were not enforced, certain people buddying up with management got away with anything.

Pool Attendant (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS – November 28, 2018
Everyday I came in to work the first thing i would do was make sure that our bartenders needed anything before relaxing and setting myself to do my job, which was simply sitting at the door waiting for pool guest to come in and check in with us, and we provide them towels and drinks when they order from us. I learned to be an excellent team player, and learn to be patient with others. Management was GREAT, our supervisor was very caring and understanding. The hardest part of the job was the fact that there are two pools at the casino, and one pool would get more business than the other. Most enjoyable part was the bond me and my co-workers had with each other, we were family.
Free lunch and breakfast, good hour long paid break.
Island View Casino and Resort is a wonderful place to work.

A productive , and a fun place to work. Great people and coworkers and great food. I've learned to be humble working there. The hardest part of the job was working with all the different attitudes. But you go to work and do your job you shouldn't have no problems. The most enjoyable part of the job is you get discounted tickets on certain things. Rides to and from parking garage everyday. All you can eat buffet style breakfast lunch and dinner as long as you are at work. I really enjoyed working there. Very strict on the rules so be sure to follow them to the fullest. You earn PTO every time you clock in and out. A free clinic to all employee and their immediate family. They also give advances on your pay check after you've been working for them for a year or more. They go all out for the cruising the coast and does a wonderful job on the holiday lights at Jones Park every Nov, Dec, and January.The management are willing to assist and help you in all ways that they can. Summing it all up Island View Casino Resort is a great place to work.

Island View should have management training because they tend to promote individuals with terrible people skills to management/supervisory positions. I watched as my supervisor bullied her employees. The employees at the company are great individuals and deserve a professional work environment.
The pay was not worth the amount of work you were required to complete.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS – September 14, 2018
I feel like the starting wage should've been way more. The amount of work is ridiculous and too strenuous on anybody. I got "jipped" out of a whole paycheck and nothing was done about it so I just accepted it and moved on.

Do the job right the first time an you want get call back. Helping people was a great way to motivate yourself to do better everyday. Going to work on time an not calling in was good for the team. It's was new people everyday but to focus on the job an being around good people was fun.
