Re: “More Casino Employee Complaints

Bottom line...Everyone can agree on this business philosophy... A happy well adjusted employee will do anything to promote and make a company successful. Pay your employees a decent wage and they will be there for you. Shaft them and they will run.
Management needs to look at some of the the applicants files not all of the best were hired in. A smile should not have sealed the deal in some cases but rather work records and experience.

Re: “Lots of People Already Quitting Their Jobs at Cleveland Casino


The gaming license in Ohio cost 549.00 and are valid for 3 years. This amount does include the background check, fingerprinting and photo needed for employment. The cost is NOT absorbed by the employer. It is deducted from employee's paycheck in 5 equal installments. The Cleveland casino is not unionized. Employee's in Cleveland do get free parking, medical dental and vision is avail after 90 days for a small fee. They do not offer holiday or vacation pay but have what they call PTO which kicks in after working there for 6 months. Employee get 7 paid PTO days from 6 months to one year.

Good to know Detroit is treating it's people that work for them so fairly.

Re: “Lots of People Already Quitting Their Jobs at Cleveland Casino

The problem lies with the Newly hired HR department. They are inexperienced and rely on a pre-designed math test to determine your fate. As a former employer of many years it has been my experience that some of my most loyal, dedicated hard workers were those that never passed a written test. To work there you must BUY a casino gambling license at a cost of $549.00 which is deducted from their pay. This amount is basically the same as working for free for a week or more at the rate of pay you receive. The shock comes as they see there first pay.
Add to it no vacations, no paid holidays, extended long hours of standing. A dream job? I think not! You must pay for parking ( no reimbursement) to interview. Then there is a second trip to return completed paperwork again not reimbursed. If you are lucky enough to be hired for this dream job make sure you ask to take the math test first before going through the massive amount of required paperwork, drug testing and wasted time.
