Bartender (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYFebruary 27, 2019
there are people there who are set in their hours and bids rarely ever come up and when they do it's rare that being new you'll get close. also they will stick you at this stupid slushie stand like it's 7/11. management has no idea what it's doing most of the time and is more concerned with their power than doing their job. other employees are great tho, it can be really fun if you're placed at a good bar but good luck.
Pros
free lunch, paid time off, fun environment
Cons
management is a joke, no room for growth

Valet Attendant (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYFebruary 26, 2019
SGC is a company that caters to C-Suite employees and leaves the rest to their own devices with poor compensation and a complete lack of advancement.

Pros:
- Free Lunch
- Flexible Hours
- Friendly Staff

Cons:
- Low Compensation. Valets receive low wages and are expected to survive on tips which are entirely arbitrary
- No Job Advancement. As a valet, there is no vertical mobility in the company. Once a valet, most likely always a valet. Shift managers in the transportation department are considered the "promotion" but that is the glass ceiling and even they do not receive good compensation
- Poor Management. The department has a serious issue with management, as many managerial mistakes are made on a daily basis which, if rectified, would allow for more fluid entrance processes for patrons


Overall, the company is acceptable to work for but nothing to write home about unless you are in the administrative side of the business.
Pros
Free Lunches, Flexible Hours
Cons
Low Compensation, No Job Advancement, Poor Management

EVS Attendant (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYFebruary 21, 2019
I worked in the EVS department,the company does not see EVS as anything but they do everything as needed all the calls they must attend to but they will not recognize EVS they bust their butts and they refuse to pay what they r worth ,it’s a shame EVS was turned down for a 2$ more raise because they said EVS don’t bring anything to the table...well if they didn’t keep the casino clean ppl would walk though the door
Pros
I worked with good genuine ppl
Cons
If ur not Seneca u don’t have a voice or u don’t move up in the company

Cashier (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYFebruary 17, 2019
The department I work is very short staffed. The department managers are really condescending and show favoritism. If they don't like you, the hours you work will always be terrible. The employees that have been there from day one also treat people very bad.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Terrible work environment if you're not liked

Casino Cashier (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYJanuary 4, 2019
The casino is very fast paste . Some days faster then others . It’s fun and stressful at times but overall it’s not a bad place to work . It’s always a job where you run into the one manager that treats you like dirt and that’s what happened to me
Pros
Time goes by fast when you’re busy.
Cons
Very fast paste

Gaming Associate (Current Employee) –  New York StateDecember 25, 2018
Management by humiliation and or intimidation. Will call out your errors, loudly, across floor of many co-workers and clients. Lack of consistent policies across management. Say its part-time, but expected to work up to 40 hours per week. Rudeness and in consideration of most managers. Dealing with degenerate customers that blow smoke in your face and call you names.
Pros
Free food.
Cons
No lunch time, given 20 minute breaks to eat-10 minutes of which are used walking back to break area.

Duel Rate Floor Manager (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYDecember 6, 2018
Aside from the discussing smoke filled environment, it's filthy, unhealthy house of bad karma.
Only demonic soulless people would do well working here.
Pros
Everyday could be your last.
Cons
Everyday could be your last.

Information Assurance Risk and Compliance Analyst (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYNovember 18, 2018
A typical day includes mentoring a newer group of employees, which is such a wonderful thing for me. I've learned such incredible things about the Seneca Nation and the food, culture, clothing, traditions and generosity. Some of the managers are outstanding while others have been placed into positions and have no background in management thus micromanage causing frustration and associates to want to leave the department or Seneca Gaming all together.

There are a lot of unqualified people that are protected because of who they know and how long they have known them. Some people call it being in the pocket of so and so.

I don't have hard parts to my job, I love my job and people I work with, I dislike when individuals are treated preferentially because of who they know, hang out with or are friends with for xx of years.
Pros
Free parking, free lunches, discounted events, clothing and restaurants
Cons
preferential treatment

Pros
Paid hour break, great benefits, company picnic with Darien Lake, friendly faces, 25% employee discount.
Cons
Draining, start off with minimum wage, can't tell anyone anything in confidence.

energetic and busy work place
Dual Rate Cage Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NY 14204September 26, 2018
It is a fast paced work place that does offer the opportunity for employees to grow ( but only to a point). Scheduling is not flexible and since it is a 24/7 operation employees are expected to work holidays etc. If the company would offer more competitive wages to both new and existing employees they would likely see better retention.
Pros
free meals, good health benefits, training
Cons
pay not competitive, often short staffed

ADVERTISING INTERN (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYSeptember 17, 2018
The short time I was there, I really enjoyed it. There of course were some mundane office days, but the majority of the time there were tons of opportunities to experience all of the fun aspects of the industry.

Great at first but it is an easy burnout
Table Games Dealer (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYJuly 13, 2018
Poor management in EVERY department, its like being in high school honestly. Under paid and over worked is an understatement, if you're not in higher managements "good graces" you WILL NOT advance nor will you keep a job for long. Establishment needs work on the many power trips that go on in there...not worth the few extra bucks that we (table games dealers) make ourselves anyway.
Pros
Free food and soft drinks during shift
Cons
short breaks, very low incentive, absolutely no job security, high overturn
