Wondering what are the wages at the casino?As I’ve been asked if they pay min.wage or over?
Depends on the position. I have been told security pays well but as for servers, maintenance etc., I am sorry but I don’t know. I do know they have a large employee turnover there.
Yeah, it seems like turnover is high there…I lasted 3 days
Really, anything you wish to share?
When it opened I was hired under the assumption that I would be working in their marketing department (the job I applied for and got) two days later I was told that I would be a cashier - working as a cashier pays more at a grocery store, and they were difficult to deal with, poor communication and everything seemed very unorganized…I’m sure that aspect has improved but at the time it was a major downfall on their part.
Things turned out for the better though
I believe they pay around $10 per hour or just under. You have to pay for your own criminal records check before they will hire you, and I believe they also used to charge for the name tags. Apparently, cashiers are not allowed to sit down during their shift. Employees are also not allowed to gamble there. I believe the server’s have to tip out at a fairly high percentage. I have heard that there is a very high employee turnover so it makes me wonder about the type of employer they are.
I have mixed feelings about the gaming centre as a lot of people can’t afford the money they leave behind there but at the same time there are plenty of people who like to go and everyone needs to be responsible for their own behaviour. I’m not sure that those people would be spending their money at other restaurants and bars. Plenty of people are drinking coffee and spending on Keno and etc. at local gas bars.
I have been there and heard employees complaining about pay, and being shorted hours, Not that I think it was deliberate, just poor management.
But I have been at other places around town and heard the same thing about other employers so Chances is not alone…
I love this story, how very very true…
One day, while walking down the street, a highly successful executive woman was tragically hit by a bus and killed. Her soul arrived up in Heaven, where she was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself.
“Welcome to Heaven,” said St. Peter. “Before you get settled in, though, it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we’ve never once had an executive make it this far and we’re not really sure what to do with you.”
"No problem - just let me in, said the woman.
“Well, I’d like to, but I have higher orders. What we’re going to do is let you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven, and then you can choose whichever one you want to spend an eternity in.”
“Actually, I think I’ve made up my mind…I prefer to stay in Heaven,” said the woman.
“Sorry, we have rules,” said St. Peter, and with that, he put the executive in an elevator and it went down-down-down.
The doors opened and she found herself stepping out onto the putting green of a beautiful golf course. In the distance was a country club, and standing in front of her were all of her friends-fellow executives with whom she had worked. They were all dressed in evening gowns and cheering for her. They ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and they talked about old times. They played an excellent round of golf, and that night went to the country club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner. She met the Devil, who was actually a really nice guy (and kinda cute). She had a great time telling jokes and dancing. In fact, she was having such a good time, that before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody shook her hand and waved good-bye as she got on the elevator.
The elevator went up-up-up and opened back at the Pearly Gates, where she found St. Peter waiting for her.
“Now it’s time to spend a day in Heaven,” he said. So she spent the next 24 hours lounging around on clouds and playing the harp and singing. She had a great time, and before she knew it, her 24 hours were up.
St. Peter came and got her. “So, you’ve spent a day in Hell and you’ve spent a day in Heaven. Now you must choose your eternity,” he said.
The woman paused for a second, and then replied, “Well, I never thought I’d say this. I mean, Heaven has been really great and all, but I think I had a better time in Hell.”
So St. Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went down-down-down, back to Hell. When the doors of the elevator opened, she found herself standing in a desolate wasteland covered in garbage and filth. She saw her friends were dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks.
The Devil came up to her and put his arm around her.
“I don’t understand,” stammered the woman. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and danced and had a great time. Now all there is is a wasteland of garbage and all of my friends look miserable.”
The Devil looked at her and smiled.
“Yesterday we were recruiting you; today you’re staff.”
haha, that’s awesome. Reminds me of a job I had…
bubbasteve not to be ruid but is there any place in the rinse that you have not worked?
Yep. There is.
I quit most of my jobs, because they wouldn’t offer me full time.
So you were hired as part time, and just assumed you’d be promoted to full time? Or were you hired as full time and they never gave the hours to you?
Option B. Typically. Or rather, told that there was lots of hours to be had, and then when hired, well, the hours weren’t there.
So, if you are not working, is it better to work part-time or not at all? Looks good on a resume anyway, fill in the lost time that they always question
I can sort of answer some of the statements, im not condoning gambling in any way, i just work there and just want to clarify some things, 1 you do have to pay for your GPEB Name tag but that has nothing to do with chances its just a licence to work in a gaming centre, just like a drivers license
2. only the bar servers cant sit during their breaks, i asked one of the bartenders there, he told me that is not chances rules, that is industry rules
3. cashiers and slot attendants do get breaks and there is a staff room with chairs and they can sit
From what i hear chances hasn’t paid there property taxes in the last ten months,
i may be wrong by looking at there spending for landing scapeing i think there money
in Rupert’s operation is funding the prince George operation,i know many people have
suffered big losses.
AJAYE property taxes are not due till July … did you mean they have not paid for last year’s yet? How do you know is there a public list somewhere?
From what i herd its last year ,they can go with out for three years,this
is not confirmed.
Herd of buffalo? What type of herd you speak of?
The whole thing is a herdle at best :-D (hurdle)
Ajaye if you mean the deferred property tax plan that the government has in place, that is a deferred plan meaning at the end of the 3 years you pay all the o/s taxes plus interest. Its for new business to help them get started. Not at all the same as not paying your taxes!
