    I worked at Pechanga Resort & Casino full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay if you have a job that pays,,, like manager/director/VP, but if not, you need a position that can take tips, if not, you got to put in your years into this company to get a raise and promotion.

    Cons

    work-life balance. Youre always going to be wokring holidays, weeknds, and if you're just starting out, expect to work graveyard shifts or night shifts or shifts that nobody wants.
    Incompetent managers and upper chain. Unless you know someone, or unless you're someones favorite, promotion is very rare to a higher position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, or promote based on merit not just seniority or favoritism

    No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - All Positions in Temecula, CA (US)

    I worked at Pechanga Resort & Casino full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They pay for most positions is great. beside a good hourly rate, tips in most positions make the pay unbeatable. great benefits plans and the perks of working in an entertainment environment.

    Cons

    Working nights weekends and ALL holidays. you really sacrifice your family life for this job. revolving schedules, blackout weekends around holidays which mean you CANNOT request the days off. poor middle management who are untrained and uneducated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize there is a huge gap between upper management's perception of how things run and the reality of how middle management actually runs things.

    Former Employee - Customer Service in Temecula, CA (US)

    I worked at Pechanga Resort & Casino full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing about this company. The only pro is that it was 5 minutes from home.

    Cons

    I worked front desk in the hotel. The biggest con is the check-in process is very flawed. Too much favoritism. Sometimes you would have to work 10 days striate without a day off. You have to clock-in 2 times. Once at wardrobe then a second time at your work area. Putting you in double jeopardy for being late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My suggestion to management is fix your check-in process. And quite playing favorites.

    I have been working at Pechanga Resort & Casino full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    health insurance, Christmas bonus, cheap food in employee dining room,

    Cons

    management is an absolute joke, rules only apply when it means getting management out of trouble, tribal behavior is out of control, customers are abusive with no limitations set by managers, politics is apparently much more important than the ability to perform a prospective job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a clue and some genuine concern for humanity
