Nothing to be scared of. You have a firm offer in hand from Wynn. No one at MGM HR. is going to hold it against you if you explain that you had already accepted another offer before they called you back and that you wouldn't feel right about letting them down at this point.

Thank them graciously for their time and consideration, and no one will be upset.

OR

If MGM calls with a firm offer before you start at Wynn and you'd really rather work for MGM, come up with a good story about why you have to back out, but make sure it isn't " I'm going to work for MGM" when you call The Wynn.

You haven't mentioned the important thing -- what is it that you WANT to be doing, if it isn't "security guard."

If security is your career, stick with the Wynn. There's no real difference between MGM and Wynn, and the pay is almost identical. If you want to jump into another department, then MGM will have WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY more opportunities to do so -- because they have so many more properties and employees.

Also, MGM is the largest employer in the state of Nevada. So I don't know where you're getting your "Wynn employs more people" facts.

I'm very happy with the culture at MGM. But I agree with everyone who says, "Bird in the hand."

Personally I don't want to see a bush big enough for one bird let alone two!


Seriously though, I'd take the Wynn and if/when MGM calls explain the situation and ask their advice on the matter if you'd rather work there. If you'd rather the Wynn then just say you already accepted a position elsewhere.

Yes, you DO know what to do. You just don't wanna. And by the way, I wouldn't go announcing around the world of casino security that you're "not that moral of a person." You've gotten good advice here. You should do what the majority here suggest.

I got that info from WIKI:
Nevada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Insofar as what would I like to do OTHER than security, well, I have no idea.
This is my first casino job. I spent the last 20 years in the medical billing field--which does not translate into anything in the casino industry.
But from what I understand, once your IN the company-you can transfer if you qualify.--and if you dont and it's POSSIBLE-the casino may still consider the transfer. Low level jobs only I'm sure.
Question for ScoopLV--why do you say to stick with the Wynn should I choose security as a career?

Well...no I don't know what to do. I want to go to the best company with the best potential for a decent salary and future. I guess at this point-my new revised question is which company would be better.
Too broad of a question-but I'm assuming the larger company would have more possibilities.
Also..
I didn't mean I'm not an employee with morals. I know right from wrong and I would never do anything against company rules or the law.
What I meant was I dont have a problem telling the Wynn that I found other employment.
It's business, nothing personal---it's the HR dept--they prob. have heard everything under the sun.
This post from NLVgal is the biggest problem I dont want to encounter:

Some new guy was supposed to start last night and bailed at the last minute to go work for you guys."

"Yeah, what was his name?"

Because you have the offer from Wynn right now. No other reason. One security guard position is as good as another. It's not like dealing baccarat, where you're relying on tips.

Since you don't really know what you want to do, I'd just take the job with Wynn. You'll be surprise how many job postings you see in the hallways at just ONE casino. You'll have plenty to choose from if you want to move around.
