Workforce Friday: Security at Horseshoe Casino

Workforce Friday: Security at Horseshoe Casino


MONDAY.
WE ARE LIVE DOWNTOWN FOR
WORKFORCE FRIDAY, TALKING TO THE
FOLKS THAT MAKE THIS PLACE RUN.
AND OF COURSE, THE SECURITY IS
REALLY AN INTEGRAL PART OF THIS.
AND EVERY TIME WE GO TO
WORKFORCE, THERE IS ONE EMPLOYEE
WHO HAS SO MUCH EXCITEMENT, WHO
IS ALWAYS EXCITED ABOUT THEIR
JOB.
I THINK THAT WE FOUND — FOUND
IT IN L.T.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOB.
I AM L.T., AKA.
I AM THE SECURITY MANAGER HERE
AT HORSESHOE CASINO.
AND FOR YOU, I MEAN, A LOT OF
PEOPLE COMING IN HERE ON A DAILY
BASIS, 24-7.
YOU ARE LOOKING AT A LOT OF
THINGS?
YES, I AM.
AND IT’S EXCITING.
SO, HOW DID YOU END UP HERE?
HOW DID YOU GET HERE?
I RELOCATED HERE TO OPEN UP
THIS CASINO.
I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE AN
OPPORTUNITY TO GET, TO MEET NEW
PEOPLE, GET ON THE EAST COAST
BECAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I
WOULD COME OVER HERE ON THIS
SIDE OF TOWN.
FROM MISSISSIPPI TO THE EAST
COAST, THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING
ABOUT.
HOW DO YOU LIKE IT SO FAR?
I LOVE IT.
I HAVE GOT A CHANCE TO SIGHT SEE
AND GET AROUND THE CITY.
I AM ENJOYING IT.
AND YOU COME FROM THE CASINO
INDUSTRY.
AS WE TALKED TO PEOPLE, IT
SOUNDS LIKE EVERY CASINO COULD
BE A STEPPINGSTONE, AN
OPPORTUNITY FOR THE NEXT JOB?
IT IS.
I WAS A SLOT SUPERVISOR.
I GOT A PROMOTION HERE IN
BALTIMORE.
AND I AM THE SECURITY MANAGER.
I’VE BEEN A MANAGER FOR ALMOST
EIGHT MONTHS NOW.
HOW IMPORTANT IS WHAT YOU DO
TO THIS OPERATION?
A LOT OF PEOPLE YOU THINK,
CASINO, THE DEALERS AND THE
BARTENDERS, BUT WHAT YOU DO IS
REALLY IMPORTANT TO MAKE THIS
BUSINESS RUN.
YES, WE RUN THIS OPERATION.
NOTHING GOES THROUGH YOU KNOW,
OUT THESE DOORS WITHOUT
SECURITY.
SO, I GET TO SAY YES OR NO.
YOU HAVE A BIG CREW, AS WELL.
WE HAVE SEEN THEM IN THE PARKING
LOT.
INSIDE, BUT ABOUT HOW MANY — I
GUESS YOU CAN’T GIVE NUMBERS BUT
YOU HAVE A BIG STAFF?
WE HAVE A BIG STAFF.
OF COURSE, MY STAFF, IS THE DAY
SHIFT.
I HAVE 30 PEOPLE ON MY SHIFT.
AND AS YOU GO ONTO OTHER SHIFTS,
YOU WILL SEE MORE SECURITY
OFFICERS WORKING, SO I HAVE GOT
A BIG CREW.
FOR ALL THOSE OCEANS 11 GUYS,
I WOULD NOT TRY IT ON YOU.
OH, NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT.
ALL RIGHT.
BECAUSE YOU ARE SWEET BUT I
WOULD NOT MESS WITH HER.
