    Pros

    Great place to make new friends, decent pay, group tips, a fun environment, customers are usually fun to be around wtih.

    Cons

    The smoking part of the fun environment is my main complaint but they warn you ahead of time. Lots of running around, some irate guests, and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    It's an opportunity to get some casino experience and free training. Working at the Ameristar would get your foot in the casino world door.

    Cons

    The biggest problem is the political environment and the lack of opportunities for advancement. It is a bland version of the old Harrahs management style

    Pros

    People are fun to work with and if your in with the right group of people and management you are good to go.

    Cons

    Managers treat employees like children and although say there is an open door policy there really is not one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat team members with respect instead of treating them like children and make themselfs more accesable to the team members who greet the guests on the gaming floor.
