    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Youngstown, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming (Youngstown, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview with 3 interviewers, 7 of us were interviewed. Theme of the interview seemed to be what would you do if a 6'3" guy was screaming in your face because he lost his money in the machine. We were told that you get screamed at a lot in this position, customer is always right. People never apologize to you. Blackout holidays, long hours and low pay. NO THANK YOU! Should have walked out like one of the other people did at beginning of interview.

    Facilities Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainville, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming (Plainville, MA).

    Interview

    I walked into the office in my work clothes--I was not afforded the opportunity to make an appointment to interview with the department. I felt as though I was a nuisance to be dealt with, rather than a potential teammate.

    The first question was if I was just applying for the pay grade ($17/hr). The second question was if I had ever held a hammer before. The third was if I could tell them what sweating a pipe was. I was also asked what tools I owned, and if I even owned work boots.

    I am -female-. I have never felt so insulted during an interview than during that interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    You and however many people they hired will sit in a room and they will ask you to talk to other people. They want to see you stand out and interact with people and smile. Talk a lot. If you don't, you will not get hired. After the group interview they will pick everyone that wasn't hired and tell them to leave. After that you will do one on one talking with your main head of a department and they will talk to you about yourself, your resume, and other things. If you pass that then you need to do a drug test either that day, or tomorrow. But dont be late, it you lost the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming (Wyomissing, PA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone interview conducted by HR. They were very flexible to coordinate a time that fit my current work schedule. Within a week I was emailed about coming in for a second interview. I was interviewed by all the IT directors in a panel-like format, where they alternated asking questions. The next week I was called in for a 3rd interview where I toured the office and spoke with the CIO about my career goals and flexibility to move/travel. 2-3 weeks later I was offered the position over a phone call from HR.
