Pros

Used to be a great place to work. Has good benefits and the employee dining area is very nice.

Cons

New management does not care about anything but impressing corporate . You can tell when corporate is coming in, because all the big wigs are out and about. They let go of good people and do not care about what we think. Hopefully all the issues come out on the team member satisfaction, if not I think that there will be a union in there pretty soon.

Get your act together, before it is too late.

    Casino Dealing creates business experience that you can't get from any where else. The customer contact is great.

    Pros

    At Ameristar you get a chance to meet alot of people. If you're in school its a very good place to start networking. Its also just an all around fun job. You're litterally playing games 8 - 10 hours a day and you get to see alot of beautiful and friendly people. Its almost like getting paid to play at work.

    Cons

    The hours were not pleasing, but it is the Entertainment Industry so the hours are made when they need you. Personal weekends are basically no more, the casino recieves its highest activity during weekends so of course they will need every dealer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just say to continue to give the dealers positive and negative feedback. Cut back on the Micro-management, even though its a casino industry and security must be set at High Alert. Try to allow dealers to branch out and develop their own way of dealing while staying within the guidelines OF COURSE.

    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.
