Current Employee - Cook in Saint Charles, MO

I have been working at Ameristar Casinos full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fun environment to work for. Great learning place for new chefs. Able to learn a variety of foods hands on.

Cons

Work very late hours. Dont expect weekends off. Moving up in the company is very hard too do, very political when it comes to that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

At first you guys showed us how much you care. Get back to that

    I worked at Ameristar Casinos part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Dealer school was free and if your halfway decent your basically guaranteed a job after training.

    Cons

    Unreliable hours....inconsistency in many areas. Take your training/experience and use it to apply at another casino

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of processing payroll so you don't get checks messed up

    Exciting job, lots of interesting people both internally and externally but...I could never support my family alone.

    Former Employee - Valet in Saint Charles, MO

    I worked at Ameristar Casinos full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of fun. Like I said it was an exciting and fast paced environment to work in. Met many people I would never have had the chance to working as a limo driver.

    Cons

    I worked there almost 7 years and even won a team member of the year award but I could never get into a position that provided enough for me to support my small family of 4.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to consider your existing human capital so they have a chance to advance to a career instead of a pyramid of mid grade managers
