    I worked at Jacobs Entertainment full-time (More than a year)


    good working group, good working conditions, adequate pay and benefits. I an think of nothing else to list save that the guests are almost always pleasant.


    Mgmt doesn't consider the employees to be worthy of being a resource. The guests are somewhat unruly but in a mining town I suppose that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Pay considerably more attention to the employee's input and expressed concerns. Lighten up on the impression give on a "walk-through"

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Elko, NV

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jacobs Entertainment (Elko, NV) in July 2012.


    I was interviewed by the Manager of Security only, no other person was involved. I did speak to the HR secretary to get the paperwork resolved. He, the security manager, was very concise, knew exactly what he wanted and quick to make the circumstances known to me. Apparently he was in a hurt for a new officer as he had just lost one and had to take a shift himself. He also apparently made his judgement based on my style and appearance rather than a series of Q & A.

    Interview Questions

    • The most interesting (not difficult nor for that matter unexpected) was "what was my approach in handling rowdy customers?".   1 Answer


    There was no negotiation as I knew what to expect since I was recommended to the job by a knowledgeable friend who explained the whole picture to me in advance.
