PURE Canadian Gaming – Why Work For Us?


Let the good times roll…

 

Founded in 1973, Pure Canadian Gaming is Alberta’s largest and longest operating casino entertainment organization.

 

With one of the most talented and experienced teams in the Canadian casino industry, PURE Canadian Gaming continually redefines the casino entertainment landscape in Alberta.

 

PURE Canadian Gaming offers Alberta’s richest Casino Loyalty program, best-in-class customer service, and outstanding entertainment experiences at each of its four properties in Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge.

 

PURE Canadian Gaming is all about fun, excitement and entertainment in an inviting and comfortable atmosphere. Come on in, relax and unwind and let our friendly and welcoming servers and hosts pamper you. Our focus is on you, and on delivering your most memorable casino experiences ever.

 

Experience a higher standard, The Pure Standard. Welcome to Pure Canadian Gaming, my friend.

PURE values team members with great attitudes, who are open, engaged and enthusiastic.  Folks like this thrive in our fast paced, customer-focused properties.  Our goal?  To be the gaming choice for players in Western Canada by providing exceptional guest experiences at each of our 4 properties.

You can expect busy, fast-paced days and nights at our casinos where our teams focus on providing the best guest service; 7 days a week, 364 days a year.  We hold regular fun events, have an engaging work environment and management teams who walk the talk.  We have a culture built on a foundation of principles and values; from our front-line team members to our President & CEO.

PURE is proud of our commitment to our great teams; offering paid training, competitive wages and benefits, an employee assistance program, an employee retirement savings program which includes a company contribution, employee recognition programs, community involvement events and more.  We work hard but there's time for fun as well; we proudly sponsor our own Softball and Dragon Boat Teams and we've been known to climb a mountain or two.

We believe our teams are our best asset and we are committed to development.  Internal growth is key to retaining our top talent and this contributes directly to our success.  We fully support training both inside and outside our properties.


 

PURE is proud of our team’s involvement in our communities and we actively participate in and host events throughout the year; our team members are engaged, enthusiastic and actively support great programs including:

  • Habitat for Humanity
  • ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
  • Run for the Cure
  • Hope Mission – Kids in Action
  • Children’s Wish Foundation
  • Red Cross
  • Breast Cancer - Run for the Cure

We take pride in Employee Engagement and awarding our successful and valuable employees!

An event we do each month is Employee of the Month. Employees can be nominated by their peers or their Supervisor/Manager. We then host a free lunch buffet at all our casino locations (Employee of the Month is held at each Casino). In attendance is all executive management, including the CEO/President and the VP/Regional General Managers. It is a delicious lunch!

Each nominee receives: 

- Certificate, $25 Gift Card and $40 Meal Credit for the restaurants at any of our casino locations

The winner receives:

- $100 bill, day of with pay, a plaque on our wall of fame, a trophy with your name engraved on it , prime parking spot for the month (great in the winter!), Employee of the Year invite and a $75 meal credit for any restaurant at our Casino locations.


Employee of the Year

A fantastic event! In 2017, the 2016 EOY was held at Pampa Brazilian Steak House. It was a free meal, drinks and a taxi voucher for all our nominees and management. What a delicious meal! The meal alone was valued at $50-$60 per person. They could also bring their spouse/partner.

Each nominee received: $50.00 spa gift card and a $15 - $20 gift at dinner.

The Winner took home: a week off with pay!!! (Wahoo), 3 days and 2 nights in Las Vegas (for 2)! Ground trasportation costs, $500.00 spending money and a trophy!

    I have been working at PURE Canadian Gaming full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -a challenging, ever evolving and rewarding work environment.

    -great support system and leadership from senior management and head office.

    -there are so many opportunities for training and knowledge sessions. It's very nice to be with a company who invests in their employees to better them and the service provided.

    -different departments of the casino work with each other to cross promote and ensure successful promotion and execution of all events.

    -several different awards and recognition to celebrate outstanding employees.

    -the new menu is outstanding, and the amount of support and training available to ensure a successful launch was second to none.

    -different entertainment and events every weekend makes Casino Lethbridge an exciting place with lots of options for our guests.

    -overall an outstanding workplace.

    Cons

    -it can be a challenge to attract new talent to fill vacant positions at times in a small city like Lethbridge. However, I feel there is a plan and fresh ideas in place to overcome this obstacle.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you and I look forward to continuing my career with Pure Canadian Gaming.
