I worked at Ameristar Casinos

Pros

The people are great to work with. Plus there is no like days. Each day is full of surprises. There is a lot of room to grow here IF you are like by the powers that be. Team members love working with each other and they do great if you ask for information. The team members there act like family and treat each other as such.

Cons

The communication is really bad. They need to treat the staff better and with more respect. Their current job cutting is uncalled for if they did their jobs right in the first place. Plus after they cut all those jobs. They put more strain on the non hourly employees that ARE EXPECTED/REQUIRED to work 50+ hrs a week. There is no balance between work/life. They also need to quit asking for feedback and then turn anything negative away as it never was said. They really love yes men. Plus the will cut jobs and hours before the spend wisely when they order things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start opening your eyes. This coming team member survey will be mean unfortunately. The way you have treated team members is disrespectful and disappointing. The conditions have degraded so much in the past year it places us back to a place that is worse than when i started. The companty could have saved more if they would have started at the top of the tree and started pruning downward.

  2.  

    It's nice to get a steady paycheck from a successful business, but the stress of having no job security is overwhelming.

    I have been working at Ameristar Casinos

    Pros

    Decent benefits
    Plenty of work (rare to get less than your scheduled hours)
    Nice end of year bonus (at least last year's was)
    Tipped positions often pay fairly high, as the casino is very busy
    Good company values on paper
    Hard-working employees

    Cons

    Very high level of responsibility that does not match pay grade (for non-tipped positions)
    Disproportionally high risk of losing job due to minors entering casino floor
    Supervisors tend dismiss hard work more often than they praise it
    Micromanagement (more than I have seen at any other company I've been a part of)
    High amount of negative feedback given to many employees
    Reactive environment on many fronts
    Very hierarchical culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being more proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to decisions that significantly affect your staff. Take EVERYONE's opinions, suggestions, and feelings seriously, not just those that appeal to you. Pay your non-tipped employees more, or set up tip systems for them: people work at casinos to make decent money, not feel like they're being used.
