Cheers to Celebrating 5 Years Mel.

Delivering the best service to our members and guests as a Gaming Supervisor, if you’ve visited DYRSL over the last 5 years, chances are you’ve seen Mel’s friendly face.

Always smiling and ensuring everything runs smoothly on the gaming floor, as Mel celebrates her 5 year anniversary with us, we thought it fitting to catch up with her over a handful of questions.

Read on to find out a little more about Mel and her time with us.

What in particular do you enjoy about working at DYRSL?

What I enjoy the most in my job at DYRSL is working alongside a fantastic management team and staff coming from such diverse backgrounds.

Over the years, I have created new friendships and I am so pleased and thankful to consider now some of those friends as family.

Describe ‘a day in the life’ working at DYRSL in your current position.

As a Gaming Supervisor, my main task is to monitor all activity on the gaming floor. I supervise and coordinate activities of staff in assigned gaming areas. I also greet our members and guests and assist them with any requests. I attend to malfunctioning machines and disburse payment to winning guests.

In this position, I like that every day or night is different, it is the variety that makes my job so enjoyable.

What is a fond/funny/stand-out memory of your time here?

So many great memories and I know there’s plenty more to come.

 

How would your friends describe you?

Honest, strong and a fun spirit, but don’t upset me!

What is something exciting happening in your life right now?

I am going to Germany to see my parents and friends!!! I am so excited and can’t wait to take my family back home to Germany after 8 years being away. Couldn’t ask for a better birthday present – being able to celebrate my special day with loved ones in the European summer.

If you could have one super-power, what would it be?

To be a spiritual healer.

Tell us something we don’t know about you.

I love dancing salsa and going to the gym.

What is your go-to meal here?

We have so many great meal options here at DYRSL however my favourite meal at the moment is a delicious turkey wrap from Aqua or a nice steak and salad from Battery House.
