If you didn't have the low level jobs you couldn't have the high level jobs... And as posted, $6 is below minimum wage!

Red Rock Station was like that when it first opened as well RRAAA, so I know what your talking about. We experienced it many times in the first few months RR Station was open, in particular the restaurants with long wait times, incompetent waitstaff and lines out the door at the Boarding Pass sign up center.

I wouldn't go back to M Resort for a while. Let the hoopla die down and hopefully, the crowds will as well.

They'll also weed out quickly, the incompetents they hired for opening the place and hopefully, get experienced people to fill those positions.

Yes on both sides as I see where you are coming from and also where Soundman is coming from. Unfortunately, many people need these low-paying jobs in order to make a living; many are actually working two or three of these low-paying jobs in order to pay the rent, buy groceries, etc.

And, yes, I believe that M should also offer more management type jobs. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a need for them right now.

Soundman, many people, including myself, are looking for work outside of their usual scope of expertise. Just the sign of the times right now.

This is how Green Valley Ranch has been for awhile now...long wait times and lots of incompetence...when they first opened, it was a lot better...

I'm wondering if the quality of the work force has gone down hill kewlkid. Wow, you should have seen the debacle that was the first few months of Red Rock Station.

An incompetent work staff will drag any property down which also makes me think about the choices those in the positions to hire are making.

I wonder if M Resort is going to take away much of GVR's (and the South Point's) business...

Although they're really not that close to each other

M Casino has a good vibe. I'm not knocking the casino at all. The lunch buffet is the best deal going. $8.95 (w/ rewards card) for lunch includes alcohol & mocha lattes!

Saves me a trip to the bar & starbucks afterwards!

Even the Bellagio & Wynn buffets don't offer this, especially for that price.

i think they look at the ages of the applicants too.. they would rather hire a 25 year old , than a 40 yr old like myself, even though, i've got 20 plus years experience

Another reason why you should not reduce your self-worth, trying to w*ore yourself out to these places.

Be patient and good things will come soon!

We just went to the M about an hour ago to check it out, it is really nice, I like the complimentary beverage stations...

With Volunteer going from Las Vegas Blvd all the way to Sun City Anthem, I believe that they are probably going to get all the Sun City business, especially with having an on-site pharmacy...

Although there's no movie theater or bowling, they are supposed to be building a shopping mall soon, but who knows with the way the economy is going...

They also have a late-night 3.95 special at the coffee shop about half of the menu is 3.95 after 11 PM...

Why does a casino need a pharmacy?
