    I worked at Dover Downs Gaming full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved my time in the casino gaming industry. i opened up with Dover Downs and got to learn a lot from some great people. I will always remember and think back on the great relationships I made with some interesting characters

    Cons

    Some floor people needed to realize that beating on you while your dealing is not the proper way to handle situations, patrons did not need to hear what was going on behind the scenes while they are placing bets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the ones busting their butts for tokes

    Pros

    The people are nice for the most part

    Cons

    They pay little for the work they ask for. The managers terminate employees for the smallest things. The managers play favoritism with the employees under them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all people fair, Realize people are human, and practice what you ask your employees to do.

    I worked at Dover Downs Gaming full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Got a lot of hands on working with equipment

    Cons

    pay is not good and the management is not really good. They promise you stuff in the hand book but when you actually go to use it, they put you through so much stuff that you eventually give up trying to use it. Like education reimbursement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Dover Downs Gaming full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees in the casino are great to work with and all really nice

    Cons

    Lots of micromanagement, bullying by management, arrogant coworkers are encouraged. Management does not function like managers in a normal business. Would not recommend working at Dover Downs unless you desperately need a paycheck while looking for your real job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the bad, incompetent, problem, dead wood managers everybody hates working with. They are wasting the company's time & money bigtime. Replacing them will stop your high turnover/employee dissatisfaction & increase your bottom line.

    I worked at Dover Downs Gaming

    Pros

    You get a lot of hands on experience that you would not get in some places. You get to meet a lot of nice people and you have the NASCAR race 2 times a year.

    Cons

    Management is not the greatest. People are always get looked over. Don't even think about getting promoted it will be few and far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people right and pay them what they are suppose to be making and they will stay there. Especially if you have a good group of people

    Pros

    Company has been a great employer to me. I've been working here for 15+ years and have advanced from an hourly employee to director. I've been given many opportunities and am thankful. Good compensation package. Lots of room for advancement

    Cons

    Alot of micromanagement in the company. Upper management doesn't trust its employees to make good/sound business decisions. Some job postings are already filled with hand picked favorites before the job is posted in house. Discourages some more qualified employees from even applying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up. Allow your people a little freedom. They know how to handle money.
