Here's my two cents and it's has to do with any of your past experience working at casino's in Vegas:

If you've never worked at a casino in Vegas and you have your foot in the door at Wynn, take it. Many people try hard to try to get into the industry and here you have it. Stay at the Wynn for some time and establish contacts so that you can then move to "better" companies in the industry.

If you've already established experience with casino's in Vegas, then you can possibly risk burning a bridge with the Wynn if you have contacts elsewhere that know your work ethic and the type of person you are.

Judging by your questions and responses, I assume this will be your first casino job so I'd stick with Wynn. Having the experience on your resume further down the road would look much better. Then having only a single experience and also burning a bridge with a major player.

Move to MGM properties if you can... it's a good company if you can get your foot in the door.

Not sure if you have made a decision yet but I would try to find out which casino lays people off more often in the division you are getting into. I know some businesses hire during peak times and then lay you off during off peak times.

Indeed there is.
I neglected to post that the Wynn is an "on -call" position and the insurance is "Tier 2"--meaning it's not the premier insurance the company offers.

Thank you all for your help. I have in fact made up my mind to go with the MGM.
They have yet to call, so clearly I made the smart move by accepting the Wynn a {even if it's only for a short period}.
I'm hoping that before my start date the MGM calls.
Hate to just up and quit the Wynn right after I start because they seem so nice there in the HR dept.
Every last one of them. Nice---friendly and helpful.
If the MGM does call before hand, I have no clue what to tell the Wynn.

That's exactly what I wanna hear!
Hope that's the case. I really don't want to pizz anybody off or ruin my chance of future employment.
Because YOU NEVER KNOW....

On call usually doesn't qualify for benefits. If you start the Wynn and then quit, don't expect to be able to get rehired.

See that's what my problem is.
Would you suggest ---JUST TO PROTECT MY POSSIBLE FUTURE WITH THEM---tell them some sort of story?
Like temporally relocating?
I don't want to lie---but I don't see any other way.
Suggestions?

There are rarely any threads where someone is stressed out over which job to take.

Is this a good sign that the recession is over?
