    I have been working at Boyd Gaming part-time

    Pros

    Management cares what employees opinions are and listen to suggestions for improvements. They are great to their employees for the most part and benefits and perks are nice

    Cons

    Working late hours can be rough and at times the customers are rude and demanding. Some employees keep in cliques and don't speak to others

    Advice to Management

    Encourage the staff and give rewards for dedicated employees when the employee receives praise from customers. Bonuses should be given

    I worked at Boyd Gaming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for Boyd Gaming at the IP casino in Biloxi. They trained their staff well and we had excellent benefits and an associate medical clinic on property.

    Cons

    Working all the holidays, sometimes working 10 days straight without a day off, and it's hard to move from one venue to another.

    Advice to Management

    Use more common sense when making schedules. Working 10 days without a day off affects our job performance. Of course there are some people love to work as much as possible. God Bless them!

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours, generous time-off, wonderful colleagues who are real professionals in their fields, and an environment that's conducive to productivity and growing as a person (for example, paid time to volunteer next Friday!). Also, the executive recruiter is very professional and experienced in helping people through the hiring process.

    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers are the only thing that's kept me here this. Flexibility with schedules

    Cons

    Poor management. This company runs on a very old school "it's always been done this way" mentality. POOR RAISES. Everyone gets the same terrible 1% raise every year, no matter their performance. My rich, old, white, male boss actually told me while giving me that 1% raise "eh cost of living doesn't matter." And this management grinds their good workers into the ground, expecting them to pick up the slack from the bad workers. Lots of passive aggressiveness from leadership, rather than disciplining the bad employees, they send out a passive aggressive email to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    REWARD YOUR GOOD EMPLOYEES! People deserve raises based on merit AND raises that keep up with the cost of living
