    I worked at Penn National Gaming

    Pros

    Good tips and money
    Easy work
    Nice Staff, like family
    Free soup and salad
    Benefits
    Great place to learn bartending, as all servers have atleast one bar shift a week

    Cons

    Obsessive "big brother" attitude
    "At-Will" clause allows a VERY high turnover rate due to firing over the tiniest thing--without warning
    Too much favoritism and bias from management
    Customers are very demanding and sometimes extremely rude; allowed to make up own items that are not on the menu; complain about everything
    Twelve+ table sections make it difficult to provide quality service
    Required to work doubles every Saturday with no choice
    Random drug testing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a little more slack and stop firing people for every little thing.
    Smaller table sections will allow better guest service.
    Treat all employees equally and not favor some by letting them break rules everyone else has to follow. Also be more fair with money shifts.
    Provide better waitress training or atleast hire somebody who knows how to train new employees. Also go over rules at the beginning and not when you are firing somebody.
