Working here (in SkyCity casino) as been extremely fun! We have staff and customers from all different backgrounds, 100s of people going in and out every day so it’s a great place to meet many interesting people. The company is very well structured and makes sure to look after their employees and give benefits. They award the staff that are hard working and make sure they are known, on the monthly staff newspapers. As for the cafeteria, we are given free coffee, hot chocolate, juice, the ‘buffet’ meals for staff are only $2.50, and very cheaply priced branded drinks (V, red bull, etc). Some other benefits include free access to SkyTower (+1 guest for free too), yearly Christmas F&B vouchers, discounted hotel rates for staff. My department’s managers are amazing and always look after us. My coworkers are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met and we treat each other like family. Our uniforms are tailored and look amazing. The interview process was fun, and so were the trainings too! Also the environment inside the casino is amazing, especially when it’s busy, it’s a whole different world. A great place to work at!
Pros
$2.50 ‘buffet’ meal that is open for staff 24/7, Christmas F&B vouchers, Free acces to SkyTower & discounted hotel rates, Great management and coworkers who care for each other, Safe environment.
Cons
Since SkyCity casino is open 24hr, some people have to work through the night and can be hard for some, but everyone has a choice.

The hours were good to begin with, but slowly reduced throughout the year until I decided to seek more hours elsewhere. The managers I had contact with were kind and helpful, and assisted me whenever I asked. I was on the 2017 minimum wage, so that wasn't great, but as a first real job it was good enough to pay rent and food in Auckland. I wouldn't go back to working there again If I could help it.
Pros
Cheap but good quality food for employees, occasionally free if working in restaurant near dinner time.
Cons
Informal "training", sometimes unclear.

Management was really good but the salary was low. Hardest part of my job is to clean the whole kitchen by myself. I enjoyed working in the company because some of the colleagues were very friendly.

working at this work place has opened my eyes to the different varieties of cultures and different attitudes "No one day is the same". The hardest part of working in this industry is that this place never sleeps so expect a call at short notice to come in to work and the long hours which is very hard if you have a young family, Management styles can be very demanding and we find ourselves short staffed alot of the time which means we have to double our workload which guarantees a high turnover. overall i do enjoy my time at work and have met a lot of good people who i would call good friends.
Pros
nice food
Cons
long hours

I enjoyed the day to day tasks I was given at my previous job, so many opportunities to further my career within the business. With great optimism there is nothing that cannot be accomplished at SKYCITY. I really did enjoy my time there and my Management team were very supportive of my role not only in the job, but as a mother. They gave me great allowance of having my daughter come through for her feeds which made my transition going back into work so much easier and more enjoyable.
Pros
Benefits of buffet lunches at $2.50, people, busy and challenging environment, hours
Cons
Too far from where I stay and traffic in and out of town

Working at Skycity is awesome, they a lot of benefits even for casual employees. They have a floor dedicated only for employees, they provide heavily discounted buffet meals that are always healthy, they also provide shuttle services for everyone to make sure that they go home safe and sound. Working on the floor in the casino is really exciting you never know whats gonna happen next, at one point you're working at a bar then the next you're on the other one helping them out. Learning things about drinks and learning skills from the bartender from many different bars are the highlight of this job. They even provide a lot of opportunities for everyone such as card dealer school and chef apprenticeships.
Pros
Cheap and healthy buffet, Shuttle service, Multiple career option
