    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pinnacle Entertainment.

    Interview

    The culture audition was silly to me. They asked a bunch of questions that had absolutely nothing to do with the ability to do the job. Besides that, it was a group interview so they asked barely any questions so they could have time to let everyone answer. I was asked a total of 4 questions. It appears they are trying to figure out everyone's personalities. However, the questions and amount of time spent discussing would not help determine that either. It was just silly and a waste of time.

    Customer Service Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pinnacle Entertainment (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They were doing multiple interviews that day so we all waited in a room until someone came to get you. The first step was a prescreening by an HR representative, and a talent recruiter. They basically went over your resumé to ask you what you did at each job, and reason for leaving. Then after that it was a group "interview" that was mainly just to gauge our personalities, and see if you fit with their workplace culture.

    First telephone interview was with HR to ensure I meet some basic project management skillets. Second telephone interview was with corporate IT and they checked to see if I met some of the qualifications in the job advertisement. Third Interview was in person with the GM of the casino and the members of the team over a 3 hour period. Overall the process has been interesting and not to difficult.

    Strategic Planning & Analysis Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pinnacle Entertainment in January 2016.

    Interview

    Received a phone interview by the hiring manager for the position. Questions were standard...Walk me through your resume, tell me about a tough situation, why Pinnacle. I then asked if there was anything about my qualifications that I could clear up and he said that I was lacking formal management experience (people reporting to me, conducting performance reviews). He said it was not a deal breaker because it was the next step up in my career and I just needed a company to give me a chance. He then told me he would be in contact in a few days to figure out if I was going to fly out for a face to face interview or just a Skype interview. So I felt pretty good about the interview. A few days go by and I hear nothing. I then reached out to the recruiter and she told me that they wanted me to talk to another manager. I of course agreed and was excited to do the 2nd round. When I spoke to the manager, she tells me that they decided to offer the position I applied for to someone else. And she was calling me about a position on her team. The position was a junior position. To cut a long story short...it didn't work out.
