    I have been working at Ameristar Casinos full-time

    Pros

    It allows for constant interaction with a wide customer base, and the chance to demonstrate and expand customer service skills, as well as knowledge about the industry

    Cons

    Few if any but it may be difficult for some to stay on their feet the entire shift, or to keep up with the fast paced environment without practice

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging people and giving them the chances and time to learn new skills and within this and other positions

    Pros

    Great core values. Great pay

    Core values are the reason I sought employment at Ameristar. Wonderful values, yet not followed by upper management
