Like the old Griffin book and other services that are now offered. I believe that there's a need for a dealer/casino employee register that keeps careful track of these people. The reasoning is that the longer people work for a casino, the more likely they are to suffer the predatory mindset, arrogance and cynicism that tends to go hand in hand with such jobs. If you visit some of the casino employee forums, you can witness the affliction. (Please note, I'm not saying everyone that works in a casino is bad.)

While many of these people are fine, upstanding citizens, the casino mentality tends to become ingrained into them. It often has a dark, persistent, poisoning affect on their personality, moral fiber, and customer service skills. Many employers could benefit from having access to the former casino employee registry. This would enable them to find out if a prospective employee was attempting to hide former employment in a casino. The registry would also contain information like, how long they were employed, games that they dealt, there habits, known immediately family and associates, general personality and temperament, as well as a complete description of their appearance, weight, and known aliases. Such a registry would help employers avoid unsavory people - steering clear of the ones that likely no longer possess customer service skills because of the previous work, and help them determine if an employee will require intense focus group retraining because of their previous employment.

It's important to note, that not everyone that has worked in a casino suffers the same effects, however a registry would still enable prospective employers outside of the casino industry to make more informed decisions when hiring people. I believe that some would be wiling to pay a fee for the registry service.

Your thoughts?

It's blacklisting, which is illegal and discriminatory.

No, it would just enable a prospective employer to make a more informed decision. The employer could carefully review the information contained within the private registry and determine whether or not a former casino employee could be salvaged via intense focus group training or whether the damage to the moral fiber was likely beyond repair, prohibiting work outside of the casino industry.

Yeah, it's called blacklisting. You can't do that
anymore, that's why they passed anti discrimination
laws. Ah, the good old days..

Keyser

We all know that there are some casinos employees that leave a lot to be desired, but tracking them would serve no useful purpose, except to keep their employees on the fence, so to speak. A marginal employee wouldn't be able to find work else were, and one bad review could keep a good employe from changing jobs. The only thing they could have done wrong was, their boss didn't like them.

It sounds like your to much in love with your job in surveillance, where everybody is suspected of doing wrong, just like every US citizen now days with all the phone calls that our great government thinks they need to know what everybody is doing. I'll put up with the bad dealers, damn there is a lot of them, but that is not my problem. It's the casinos and they way they treat their employees.

I see some dealers that never should be in the casino industry, but when we the customers complain about them it falls on death ears. So learn to live with it too. If you what to change how things are done in your industry, make changes within, learn to listen to your customers.

I sometimes wonder if posters don't read what they post, you wrote, that your industry changes, their employees. It poisons them, that in your own words, and yet when the players write about the bad service we get , your be one of the first to tell us it's the players fault.

What you want is big brother to watch everybody and that is just plain wrong, if you want better employees, learn to treat them with respect, and pay them decent wages, where they don't have to work three jobs, to make ends meet! I've had dealers tell me that I'm betting more with one bet then they make all day. Resentment runs deep, I treat all dealers with respect, until they think it's there job to make you lose your money trying to climb the corporate ladder, so they can make a few more bucks!

Finally Keyser, it sounds like you may be suffering from the same infliction as your fellow workers are, you don't trust anybody!

By the way have a Merry Christmas, maybe my post will let you see the light, and why your way of thinking is just plain wrong!

Keyser has been accused of many things,
being in surveillance isn't one of them. Being
watched by surveillance, that's his hobby,
