All In From Day 1 at PPC
Roughly 70 of Point Place Casino’s 300 employees have been around since the property first opened back in March 2018—an impressive number that reflects how PPC is a great place to play and to work.
Many of those employees say PPC’s friendly culture has inspired them to stick around over the years.
Line Cook Sabrina Johnson said she has made a lot of great friends over the years; people from whom she has learned a lot. She noted that coming to PPC marked a big change for her as she took the leap from cooking breakfast food in a local diner to cooking burgers at PPC. She said the support she has gotten from her colleagues has been invaluable.
“Everyone talks to everyone,” Sabrina said. “Cooks, cleaners, maintenance, security—we all have friends from all areas.”
Security Officer Michael Carbonaro said the familial atmosphere has left an impact on him, as well.
“The strong and supportive management shares understanding, compassion, and respect; it has become something we have for each other,” said Michael. “We all feel like we are not just numbers or faces, but instead are treated like people.”
Other Day 1 PPC alums said they can’t believe the extent to which the casino has matured and grown over the years.
Marge Regan, Player Services Representative, said she remembers how excited she was for opening day, and noted how that excitement hasn’t diminished since then. She added that she has marveled at the casino’s ability to change over time, and said it is “amazing” to consider all the growth since Opening Day.
“There is no way anyone could use the word ‘boring,’” she joked.
Two examples of that growth include the addition of The Lounge with Caesars Sports and the area of table games just outside of it.
Inez Suzette Terrell, Table Games Floor Supervisor, often is stationed in this area, and said it’s great to be able to do her job and simultaneously soak up the excitement emanating from the sports book and lounge.
“Of all the additions over the years, the sports book is my favorite,” she said. Inez added that she thinks Point Place is the perfect size—not too big, and not too small. “We’re the happy medium. It has been fun.”
