Awful
Hostess/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Nichols, NYJune 11, 2018
Constant drama, petty nonsense, terrible scheduling, unfair seniority system, and lousy "points" policy with a total lack of empathy to your situation.
Pros
Free food if you worked that day.

Poker Shift Manager (Former Employee) –  Nichols, NYApril 23, 2018
401k with a match, 100% match at 3%, then another 2% at 50% match. 6 months in and your fully vested. Healthcare was expensive. PTO was bad. They don't give you much vacation time. My boss was awesome. Alot of the positions are in a union. Unforunately, the union is a bad idea. They protect bad employees from losing their job which ends up running some of the customers off. The place isn't very busy unless it's a holiday or special event.
Pros
50% discount on food. $4 buffet
Cons
Little PTO, Poor working hours

Staffs attitude could be worked on
PA (Current Employee) –  HotelFebruary 17, 2018
The staff in the hotel could use more work on their attitudes. Everyone is so quick to jump down the others throat that nothing really gets done like it should. It also has a very disrespectful manager of the housekeeping industry who does not mind making taking her problems out on her employees.
Pros
Discounts at the places to eat
Cons
Aren't really paid what you're promised, poor working attitude

One sided when it comes to upper management
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) –  Nichols, NYDecember 11, 2017
Very stressful environment, no appreciation, horrible pay rates, almost every one who is employed there needs to have 2 jobs to survive. Unless you are upper management. Discounts are good but I would rather have more hourly pay and more room for advancement.
Pros
Time off, discounts, close to home
Cons
Upper management, horrible pay rates

I enjoyed the casino atmosphere and the other employees but did not agree with their management style.

To much favoritism amongst employees. Sometimes no breaks for a long period of time.
Pros
Nice discounts on food, etc. entertainment available
Cons
sometimes no breaks, to many rules and regulations, unfair treatment.

Dual Rate Cage Attendant (Former Employee) –  Nichols, NYOctober 12, 2017
It was better prior to being an actual casino. The gaming tables had a lot of hype but more of a headache than enjoyment. TRU machines hurt the cage attendants
Pros
Great people

Not enough interest in the workers

walked off the job without hesitating
Surveillance Operator (Former Employee) –  Nichols, NYAugust 24, 2017
I thought surveillance was going to be cooler than working at auto zone but actually the top heads are totally scattered and unorganized and unaware of anything going on in the department. there is no training schedule in this department. you get hired and they throw you on a shift and leave you in the dark which made it harder than i thought. it takes the director and manager about 6 months to figure out if they have actually gotten a chance to train you on all of the table games because they dont know what is up or remember if they made time for you. I liked my co-workers but do yourself a favor and apply to another departrment that makes more money because you will never ever move up in that tiny closet they call "surveillance". its more like a sweat box with too many rules that you only have to abide to if supervisors figure out that they do not like you. i was clausterphobic in there day in and day out and without regret i farted a big juicy one in my surveillance chair and then walked off the job so that i could finally breath.
Pros
if you work overnights there is never a "higher up" watching over you
Cons
horrible days off and you have to work all holidays. only 5 days off a year

Needs to improve working enviroment!!
Surveillance Operator (Former Employee) –  NYApril 30, 2017
Tioga Downs was a good company to work for except for a few coworkers who loved to make drama in the department. This made for a hostile work environment; this wasn't corrected by upper management. Management allowed personal friendships to affect their business relationship with employees.
Pros
easy job, benefits
Cons
work enviroment due to drama
