    Former Employee - Croupier in Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    I worked at Rank Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere when not busy you can have many breaks which are paid. Continuous training to develop as a croupier.

    Cons

    Working nights. ( Even though it is something I got used to). You work in a lot more positions that the one you were originally hired( croupier) you are given a lot more responsibility ( which is good for your CV). However, you are not paid more, your extra efforts in general not really acknowledged. Also expect from the fact that you learn different departments in the casino ( again due to high turnover and not paying well for the amount of work and the customers you have to deal with) there is no real career progression in a casino. You have to take the knowledge you gathered somewhere else. No free food, whereas in the past they used to offer that.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rank Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance because staff are too disengaged to work late

    Cons

    Staff are treated appallingly by a company that claims to have 'values'. The Rank values are farcical and non-existent. It doesn't matter how good you are at your job or how much you put in to your role, you will only survive the constant restructures if you have friends in high places. The turnover of staff is ludicrously high, it is a revolving door. People have been restructured so many times that they have no idea what their remit actually is. Morale is at rock bottom. The company is undergoing transformation which means costs are constantly being stripped out of the business. Everyone is expendable and people are cast aside in a brutal fashion. Do yourself a favour and find a job elsewhere. Waiting to see if the next casualty will be you is a horrible way to live. I am very happy I no longer work there. Plus gambling is an awful sector which profits from people's misery and feeds addiction. There are plenty of other jobs, you really don't need one here.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. As you're no doubt aware, we're currently going though a transformation programme and whilst we're making good progress, there's some changes which unavoidably impacts our teams ... we're of course trying hard to keep this to a minimum.
