    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a phone call pretty shortly after with a short phone interview. I was then asked to go to a group panel interview about two days later where all of the candidates I was competing against were also interviewed simultaneously. About a month later I got a call with a job offer.

    Casino Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Central City, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Central City, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially you are contact via email if you are qualified for a position; being the nature of the position and the amount of the employees, I would assume most people are contacted about their position. Next you self-schedule an interview on the Ameristar.careers webpage. The interview is quite tedious: first they use a panel interview with all the hotel management team, second they meet with each person individually as to whether or not to offer employment, third you meet with your department manager individually, and last you fill out your paperwork and the details of the position are provided. You can expect to be at the casino roughly 4+ hours for the interview process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received they day after I applied and set up my interview for the next day. There was a short over-the-phone interview at that time. The next day my interview was about 45 minutes late but the actual interview was a wonderful three stage interview with different interviewers asking different questions. I felt that my character was well captured and appreciated throughout the whole process.

    Interview Questions
    • I had to take several day classes that clashed with my daily schedule were extremely inflexible. This was easily the worst part of the hiring process.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Ameristar Casino at Council Bluffs Iowa Hosts a Job Fair every three month or so, to fill up the required open positions. I attended one of these fairs in beginning of October 2010. After filling up the application the recruiter first talked a little about Ameristar casino and later introduced us to to different managers of different departments for which we applied for. The managers off course went through our applications, and interviewed us in person. In my case i first met with Food and Beverage manager and later with Banquets manager. The questions i was asked were mostly regarding my previous job experience and education level, but also the questions about my overall personality. after F&B and Banquet managers agreed upon my hire i was given a list of errands to complete before the hire was official. First i had to fill out the application online so it was in the system; successfully complete a drug test, Obtain a necessary gaming license that allows me to work on casino property, and schedule for the orientation as well as other classes necessary to perform my job properly. when everything was completed the hiring process was finished and i was scheduled my first date to work in my department. After a month i met with my supervisor to talk about my experience at Ameristar. After 3 month i met with Food and Beverage Manager to talk about my experiences and expectations at the casino. Overall the hiring process was hard and demanding but for someone who is dedicated to the place he applies for from the very moment they step on its grounds, the interviewing process is a peace of cake.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Council Bluffs, IA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I went to a job fair (submitted application ahead of time), the job fair was a little overwhelming and the wait for anything was long. There was also a TON of paperwork. When you show up you let them know what job(s) you want to interview for. They can fill up, so make sure you put the one you want or are most qualified for first. As a tip: a lot of people show up with their kids or in unprofessional attire. I dressed up and got hired on the spot. Don't be shy, they are looking for people with confidence and good customer service/speaking skills.

    Interview Questions
    • There were some scenario questions, so be prepared for those types of questions.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was not really any bargaining for pay or hours, they were hiring for something very specific. Be prepared for unpaid training if going for dealer school (it can even be full-time unpaid). Make sure you are available right away, they are usually looking for that. You also must pay for your own gaming license.
