    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was good, my co-workers were great. Management was OK, but not the seasoned veterans you would want. Hours were generally consistent, and if you asked often some employees could get out of work an hour or two early if work was slightly slow.

    Cons

    On the casino floor smoke is unavoidable. I get migraines, and in the long term the exposure contributed to my departure.

    Some policies were a little rough during my time there, being a new casino they could model themselves after, but not produce a perfect copy of other company operations. Mostly good, with some inflexibility and a few policies which weren't great.

    When I departed, there were a few too many dealers working the floor, and only so many hours. More dealers=better service, but it also dilutes the tip pool.

    Hours are all over the place, but that's the nature of the beast.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more active role with your employees on the front lines. Don't be afraid to change some policies in an attempt to make it a better place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem (Bethlehem, PA (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Went through interview and drug tests, no problem - was offered and accepted the job. When going to entrance I had inadvertently dropped my ID in my car. I asked the HR rep if I could go get it and was told I had 5 minutes. When I returned, was told that "this isn't going to work, try to re-apply again in 6 months.

    This is totally unethical and goes against every HR process in the USA. Really wanted this job and turned down tother opportunities elsewhere. If this is the standard business practice at the Sands, this place is not worth working for not to mention wasting valuable time to interview with.

    I have never experienced such unethical and unprofessionnal business practices. As a minority, this may fall into a discrimination law suit. The will hear from my attorney.

    Don't waste your time with these people...there are many open lawsuits against them. Management totally corrupt.
