I worked at Ameristar Casinos

Pros

Pay of salaried team members
Management's stock options and bonuses
Company's philanthropy and volunteerism
Quality of most facilities
Legacy of quality, customer service and giving back to community that was promoted by company's late founder

Cons

Job insecurity and instability
Workload
Unrealistic work expectations after major staff reductions
Management's lack of candor and honesty about what's happening

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Team members aren't stupid; tell them what's going on. Don't avoid communicating just because you don't like delivering bad news or because you feel guilty because you're still doing good, but so many team members aren't.

Quit "disappearing" team members; it's freaking the rest of us out.

    I have been working at Ameristar Casinos part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Management for the most part is very clear about what they want from you. Most of your co workers are friendly and easy to get along with. The pay is satisfactory.

    Cons

    The Guest can be difficult sometimes. You are required to work holidays and weekends. Odd and unwanted hours of work.
