Caesars Windsor Screw Over Everyone

Come on, Caesars!!!! Seriously, you talk about how much your guests mean to the business?? Well, what's the hold up? Treat your staff members with the respect they deserve and pay them accordingly!!! It is because of the excellent staff we continue to enjoy our time at Caesars. Why is it that there are so many that have been there for years making $2 or so more than those who just got bumped to, what is it $14? You should take pride in your staff, they serve you well!!! It is truly disgusting the way you continue to treat your staff members, you should be ashamed of yourselves!!! Oh wait, you don't care, cause you are the one with the upper hand right? You are the ones that put food on their tables, roof over their head, yada yada....UHHHHHM well, in one way yes...BUT if it weren't for the players, the wouldn't exist!!!! We appreciate your staff more than you do obviously!!!! As for your gamblers, WELL, believe me, many of us have noticed how we too have been getting screwed over as well!!! You have made cuts across the board!!! Do you know how much chatting goes on in the ticket lines? Many Diamond (15000+ Tier Credits) members getting half or nothing of the complimentary free stuff, yet, a Gold or Platinum member (anything under the Diamond amount) is getting more than we are???? We get it, you think you feel you have us cause we will come back, you want to lure the lower tier in with free stuff. Soooo, ever been told you should play without your card? You should if you do not intend on staying on a machine for long. I found out your free stuff is based on your play. Play, not based on the money you spend....the amount of time you spend on machines!!! Believe it or not your average(Play) goes down IF you hop around to different machines. You increase your average if you dump all of your money into one machine, but they don't really want to inform you of that!!!! Put less money in, play less machines, end up with a better average...that will get you more free stuff!!!! Soooo, we as the gamblers of Caesars, I think I speak for many, truly do not understand your greed!!!! Reality is, all the free stuff, well, don't we know it....most of us have paid for it!!! We've actually bought it, most likely 10X over the price you pay!!!! Quit being sooooo cheap and dis respectable to your staff members, they are a very big reason many of us gamblers frequent the casino!!!! They are what makes your business thrive!!! You (Caesars) big cheapskates, are what we the gamblers usually complain about, not your staff!!!! You need to quit being so cheap!!! Pretty sure you can't say you didn't make enough money in all these years..hell I'm sure you make enough every single year to justify giving your employees what they deserve!!!! Better pay (retro pay for those that make just over minimum wage, after many years of service), better benefits and truly respect!!! I am glad they are out on strike picketing for what's right!!! Caesars may be losing a lot of money right now...BUT as we know they can afford it....the strikers however is another story... KEEP GOING WON"T BE LONG!!! They will break!!!! Their not getting what they want either....that's the money, greed always rates over all else, Money, money, money, tick tock !!! GO CAESARS EMPLOYEES!!!!!

Important documents stolen

Last night my car was broken into. Everything that was stolen is replaceable, except for a large black portable expanding file folder containing all of my child's medical/ educational documents. These documents hold no value to anyone else, however they have significant value to my family. These are documents from the many specialists we've seen in his 10 years. Diagnoses', IEPs, medications, report cards. My son has special needs and we need these documents. Please keep an eye out. In your alleys, parks or anywhere else someone could have dropped it once they realized there was no value. Please help us find this folder.

Two good deeds in one day

We were attending a hockey practice for my ten-year old grandson at the Volmer Complex on Thursday evening. While we were waiting for him after practice we noticed a lady had left her purse hanging over a chair in the lobby. No one was around where the purse was left, so we stood by to see if anyone would come back for it. After 10 minutes my daughter asked the lady sitting at the other table if she could describe the lady who was sitting behind here. There was no one with that description that we could see. My daughter brought the purse to the table and asked myself and the other lady to witness her going into the purse, so we could at least know what the lady looked like. Fifteen minutes had gone by and finally a panicked mom came running in looking for her purse. While my daughter was trying to find the owner of this purse she put down my grandsons fit bit not even realizing it. She was more concerned about finding the owner of the purse. We left the arena and realized she did not have the fit bit. My grandson was so upset as this was his birthday gift, and he has been taking great care of it. When she called the arena the next morning a good, honest person turned in the fit bit. So two good deeds were done by two different people. I want to thank this amazing, honest person who turned the fit bit into the lost and found. I have one happy grandson. Thank you

Thank you!

Thank you to the lady at the mall today who went out of her way to make my day a little better i work construction and sometimes you think alottttt while working. I was having a terrible day i went outside for a smoke because my day was so bad (i never take unscheduled breaks) i was squatted down next to the garbage so i would be unseen (didnt want to get in trouble) she told me i could sit on the bench with her but explained my situation to her she wanted to cheer me up and could see i was sad she told me and its tough working with men And that she admired me. She said that she wants her daughter to look up to a woman like me thank you for boosting my ego you really made my day and made me appreciate myself a little more. I hope i see you again. You were wearing all black dark hair a little bigger frame i think you were working in the mall you are an amazing person.
Hope you stumble across this one day

Generous Casino Employee Donates his first Strike Pay Cheque

I'm writing you because I'd like for my co worker to be recognized for his generosity. I was speaking to a good friend of mine today Mr. Antoni Tambunan and he mentioned that there are more people that are in need of the strike pay than him and that he would like to donate his check this week of $250.00 to his fellow co workers on the picket line. This action of kindness didn't come as any surprise to me, if you knew Tony you'd know that he's incredibly thoughtful and generous to others. Tony said that it's his time to give back to fellow casino coworkers because they all supported him and raised money for his family when the devastating tsunami destroyed his family in Indonesia. I cannot speak highly enough about this man, he truly has a heart of gold. Tony is a Guest Service Representative at Caesars Windsor, he takes pride in what he does for a living and does it well. He is the first Canadian to win a Recognition of Service Excellence Award (ROSE) during the annual Detroit Metro Conventions and Visitors Bureau ROSE Awards banquet. At 4 o'clock today at the Unifor Local 444 Union trailer located on Glengary Street he will make his donation to the people that have given to him in the past, it's his way of saying thank you for everything his co workers have done for him.

University Generosity

I was in line to pay for my food at the U and I heard the clerk say to multiple people that their meal was covered. When I got there, she said this to me as well; she said a student has a lot of money left on their uWincard and decided to pay for people's meals to get rid of it. This act of kindness goes SUCH a long way, especially during the stressful season of exams. Whoever you are, thank you for making my day.
