I enjoy taking care of the needs of our guests so that their gaming experience at the Tachi Palace is a memorable and enjoyable one. I have had many opportunities to ask our guests what they expect from their casino hosts. Time and again the answers are almost always “communication” and “follow-up”. I take pride in keeping our guests up to speed on our events and promotions, and also making sure that their hotel reservations are booked timely and properly.

“Hello, my name is Nick Garcia and I have had the pleasure of being employed at Tachi Palace Casino Resort since 2015. I started in the Food & Beverage serving at many different types of events, but by far my favorite was tending to our VIP clientele. I was given the opportunity to move departments in 2018 In which I became a Host Representative for the Marketing team. My big break came just after six months to become a Casino Host which I am still very much trilled about. Helping our VIP guests with their needs and through our constant communication helps them reach their player status. I like seeing my VIP’s always excited to be here, so I always make sure I turn their trip here into a positive experience.”
