I worked at Penn National Gaming


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


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.

    The salary, benefits and environment are great. I got experience in handling an extensive variety of tasks


    I would have stayed with them forever if they'd offered some method of advancement , especially for admins. They often promote from within but admins never seemed to go anywhere
