I have 3rd interview tomorrow. I am currently the room service and butler manager for a local resort. They told me that all the shifts are going to be a lottery, no seniority to pick shifts. I have to make it past the third interview first. Was it as short as the others have been... like 5 minutes?? Did they question you about technical stuff, or just a conversation. I'm not even going to have enough time to give my 2 weeks notice. Will they offer me a job or not at the end of the third interview??? Thanks for any info.

The interview stars with a roomfull of applicants being given a look at a scale model of Cosmo.Then we are taken to another room and told to line up soccer style in a single row.There is a round table with a, bunch of placecards.You are told to pick one that best describes you.Then you wait to be given a one on one with a panel member.After that,they ask you a few questions.The only thing I was asked was congratulations on getting the job.If you have made it this far,I think the job is yours unless you have a complete meltdown.I was told the opposite about the work shifts.Senority would determine shift placement.

From what I heard it is too far to walk, that's why they are trying to figure out how many shuttles will be needed depending on the number of employees working at any given moment.

it was the assistant manager I interviewed with, and she asked me if had all availability. I said yes, and she said because they are going to lottery the shifts, and she said that they thought it was the fairest way. I asked if you could switch shifts after the lottery and she said probably. It's a little scary, because if I get a crummy shift and quit my job, it's gonna suck.

I hope everything works out well for all of you. Just have a backup plan in place. From everything I have heard from some the hiring managers I have contacts with. I see a big hairy rat.

Has anyone in table games heard anything yet since the processing and background check? I'm still waiting. They said wait for an email from a manager saying when orientation would be. What's the hold up?

I think why she said that was because Cosmo does not want any prospective employee to have another job.Uncertainty to what shift you will have will make you think twice about taking the job or make you commit entirely to Cosmo.They asked my friend before they offered him a job,if he was fully committed,and was he going to give notice to his current job.Any bargaining unit job,I am guessing will have a lottery for the seniority number,then based on order of the number picked,select your shift.I am not worried about working a specific shift.I am ready to leave my property.Commit and dont look back.Fortune favors the brave.

So, you are not 100%... if they saw that, that is not a good thing.. You have to be 100% committed! If you are happy with your shift now, why would you even leave?

I keep hearing that "No news is good news." Do you all believe this? At what point does no news become bad news?

I'm worried that they are only concentrating on the candidates they want to hire, getting them processed and what not, and once that is done they will get around to the mass murders, er...rejections.
