    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos (East Chicago, IN).

    Interview

    Everyone had dressed very professional and some dressed casual. They would take you in a enormous room just for two people to do interview. In order to get hired by the casino, you must have at least three interviews before getting hired. You must dress in uniform to work on the vessel.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me if I was able to work the grave yard shift? Because no one wanted to work that shift. They said that I would be trained for two weeks and it would be always someone there to help out with the floors and cleaning the restrooms. We were taught that the customer is always right and I think it was they didn't want anyone to complain about their vessel. That is so they would come back and spend their money on the vessel.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos (Kansas City, MO) in December 2014.

    Interview

    There was a group interview to help HR get an idea of who everyone was and what they brought to the table. They asked a lot of questions to break the ice and give everyone a chance to talk. If you are afraid of group interviews, just force yourself to talk. These aren't qualifying questions. They are just to get to know you.

    Casino Services Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos (Central City, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ameristar Casinos (Council Bluffs, IA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    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.
