Having been here since our opening, Andres’ tenure rivals Thunder Valley’s years in operation, and he exemplifies what the resort can offer those who seek a fulfilling, rewarding career.
Andres started his career as a line cook and has worked in various culinary positions through the years, eventually becoming our current Assistant Executive Chef, which is remarkable, considering he’s never attended a formal culinary school.
At Thunder Valley, Andres learned his trade through mentoring by a host of experienced chefs from various Thunder Valley restaurants.
“To me, Thunder Valley is a culinary school,” he said. “That’s the cool thing. … It’s full of knowledge.”
Denette’s career with Thunder Valley began with providing guest service in our Rewards Center and assisting guests with Thunder Club card benefits.
From there, she briefly served as an administrator with our Food and Beverage department before moving on to her current role as Benefits Specialist in Human Resources. This position suits Denette perfectly, she said, because the job involves developing close relationships with her fellow Team Members.
Denette’s story highlights Thunder Valley’s culture of promoting from within, as she had no prior experience with her current role. She simply worked hard and, through recognition by management and peers, she successfully carved out a solid career.
“I can’t imagine being anywhere else and I hope to be here for a lot longer,” she said.
Tracy has been with Thunder Valley from the very beginning. And since then, she’s seen a lot of change, including a major expansion that transformed the casino into a full-fledged resort.
Tracy, who first started here as a Table Games dealer, now oversees many dealers. And as far as her Team Members are concerned, she said, there’s always an open-door policy when it comes to asking for advice.
That’s because she believes her role is not just that of a Floor Supervisor but one that includes being part of a large family. This mentality extends to Team Members as well as Thunder Valley’s guests, Tracy said.
“It’s the people,” she said of her bond with fellow Team Members and guests. “I mean, there’s family at home, and there’s family here.”
Stephanie said she takes pride in the fact that Thunder Valley believes promotion from within is crucial to its success.
Invaluable, free leadership training courses offered at Thunder Valley contribute to that success. Stephanie made full use of these courses while advancing from her position as a Human Resources representative to her current role as the Claims Manager with our Security Department.
She also enjoys many of the other benefits that Thunder Valley provides, including free meals from our Team Dining Room, where Team Members can spend their breaks enjoying the buffet-style cuisine.
“I love this job, love who I work for and work with,” she said.
