Good for self starters
Library Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, FLApril 17, 2018
The culture creates some hostility. At times, there was an ominous feeling in certain departments. They pay well, though employee stress levels may increase. Some positions don't include any form of training.

Serene environment that felt like a vacation. Challenging on many occasions
TOUR GUIDE (Former Employee) –  Clewiston, FLMarch 22, 2018
At the museum it was an educational experience. Outside of the museum was a beautiful boardwalk that transported you from work to a place seemingly untouched by modernization. This was the place to escape and be lost in thought. At the museum, work was challenging especially with all the visitor contact but each contact provided a chance to engage and learn from each other. Notions and engraved beliefs were challenged and transformed. Management was tricky and the political climate at times uncomfortable. The commute to work was difficult being 70 miles 1 way. You are working on a reservation surrounded by the everglades and the nearest town to the reservation where you could live is about 40 minutes drive.
Pros
Beautiful workplace and environment
Cons
Over an hour drive. 70 miles one way.

Its a great place to start off.
Cashier (Current Employee) –  FloridaFebruary 12, 2018
The hardest part of your job will be dealing with these people. The computer is easy to use once you know how to read. It just pays the bill once you work really hard.

Do not recommend working with the Tribe
Management (Former Employee) –  Hollywood, FLOctober 6, 2017
The only positive thing in working with the Tribe, besides the pay and benefits, is being able to work with Tribal members and families. Overall, the company has a high turn over rate, management is poor, and it is a toxic environment. Management cannot be trusted. Policies and procedures constantly change or they are not followed properly at all. This is not the place to work if you are looking for a positive work atmosphere.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Poor management that cannot be trusted, high turn over

Would never encourage anyone to work here, you can do far better. plays favorites, poor mgt of staff, lack of training
Temporary Positions (Former Employee) –  Plantation, FLJune 13, 2017
Toxic work environment, new manage didn't know a thing about managing a staff, played favorites, poor work environment, training not well planned.no training manual, Other staff telling you they are surprised you are still working in a particular office in accounting, telling you they feel sorry for you. Really? Some staff allowed more privileges than others. Operations & programs stuck in the 1980's.
Staff gossiping allowed, even told one temp about how they hope another employee in that office leaves.
Would NEVER encourage anyone to take a job here, besides the fact a tribe member can take your job on a moments notice and it happens so beware!
Pros
pay
Cons
being replaced by a tribe member, toxic work environment, favoritism

Fast paced, confidential work environment.
Surveillance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 6, 2017
I enjoyed my job as a Surveillance supervisor. There was no such thing as a typical day at work. Continuous interaction between Surveillance and all departments of the casino. This was a fast paced work environment and at the end of the shift, I was proud of a job well done. All daily activities were confidential.
Pros
Free lunch, excellent health care.

A typical day @ Seminole Tribe of Florida
Systems Administrator (Current Employee) –  Hollywood, FLMarch 30, 2017
STOF is a culturally enriched environment with the many typical ups and downs of day to day office work. There are friendly people in this culturally diverse arena. You will learn to appreciate and embrace new cultures and new ways of thinking about what you are given as a US Citizen and not.

The management is dynamic was well, depending on the department you are working for and the teams / projects you are assigned.

The toughest part of the job is the get up to speed as quickly as you can. There are so many activities happening at once, that you must get really comfortable thinking on your feet.

The most enjoyable part of the STOF are the hours and the diverse work environment.
Pros
Strong Staff Members with deep knowledge and experience
Cons
Kronos, Parking
