    I worked at Ameristar Casinos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, both the guests and the employees. Company gives you decent discounts and comps. Employee dining room is a great price. Bus takes you from Twin Falls to Jackpot for work.

    Cons

    Management could use an overhaul. Employees don't last more than a couple of months. Employee dining room makes you sick from food during too long.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on keeping your employees happy
