    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Prairie Meadows Racetrack & Casino full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k, insurance, vacation and wages. Treated everyone fairly and in a dignified manner. Very clean and well kept workplace,

    Cons

    It is a 24/7, 365 days a year job, you may not like the hours and having to work holidays. Schedules are based on seniority and will get better as you spend time with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with company news, both good and bad. Treat everyon like an adult.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Prairie Meadows Racetrack & Casino (Altoona, IA).

    Interview

    One interview was completed in person. I waited three weeks before they called and offered me the job. They have to do background check for licensing before they can offer you a job which is why it takes so long.
