I have been working at Ameristar Casinos

Pros

Enjoy the People I work with on the Casino Floor and the Laughter we share. I respect every person I come in contact with, while I am working

Cons

To many decisions are made by the Corporate Office in Las Vegas, without really knowing what is going on with my fellow Team Members in E.C.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the Team Members that actually work on the Casino Floor. They really do have good ideas and suggestions of what works at our Property. What may look good on paper or in a Pie Chart, DOESN'T necessarily mean it will work at a certain property.

Doesn't Recommend

    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 worked at Ameristar Casinos full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate culture was highly collaborative

    Senior management valued the work of those at all levels

    Co-workers were highly skilled and motivated

    Cons

    Significant travel for those who worked in corporate offices with properties in remote locations. For example, there were no direct flights to Vicksburg, MS or Jackpot, NV.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buy another casino company because you were all amazing operators!

    I will always value my time at Ameristar
