    I have been working at Penn National Gaming part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    lots of experience to be gained that can be applied to virtually any field and everyone who works here is friendly and has a tremendous spirit of teamwork. From execs to housekeeping, we all treat each other like we are part of a well oiled machine.

    Cons

    It is such a hip and happening place with the best gaming and rewards card in the area, unfortunately as an employee we cannot take advantage of any of it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to take more risks in our advertising, I don't see why we should be the most conservative casino, we are Hollywood!!!! lets capitalize on my co workers and my desire to be unique and really stand out in our market

    I have been working at Penn National Gaming

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Penn gaming (Argosy Casino are:
    1. Great coworkers. They treat each other like family.
    2. Well above average pay for casino dealers.

    Cons

    Some of the main downsides are:
    1.All new dealers must work at least a year or two before getting full time status w/ benifits
    2. Second hand smoke is unbelievably terrible.
    3. Work schedules are lousy. The hours are terrible and they bounce around alot.
    4. Management is much more strict about following procedures exactly than other casinos
    5. Dealer, especially experienced dealers, all feel that management is trying to fire them so they can hire part time dealers w/ no benefits.
    6. Lots of write ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please select different shift hours to better suite peoples lives.
