    I have been working at Boyd Gaming part-time

    Pros

    Boyd Gaming continues to promote growth within the employment center and is a very family oriented company. Boyd Gaming is a welcoming, established and secure company to work for.

    Cons

    I would like to promote within the Boyd Gaming Corporation to a full-time position and explore all that Boyd Gaming has to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Your Group/Panel interview was a great and interactive experience. The engagement with all of the other new hires was a motivator for me to get excited and meet new people!

    Pros

    I met a lot of talented coworkers and good people

    Cons

    The job feels miserable at times

    Advice to Management

    Instead of adding fake glassdoor reviews, fix your company mentality and outdated dress code. Pay your employees who work hard!

    I worked at Boyd Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Prior to Bill Boyd retiring the company had a family like feel and was wonderful.

    Cons

    Since Mr. Boyd retired it is completely money hungry with little regard for what is best for the people that actually bring the customers back every day.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at your management and directors before its too late.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers are great. If it wasn’t for them I would have never stayed this long. Managers are helpful and easy to talk to. They are willing to hire with little or no experience. Free pop!

    Cons

    Extremely overworked and underpaid. They will squeeze every man hour out of you in order to make their bottom line. It’s the only company I’ve worked for that I actually lost money the longer I worked due to very low raises and an increase in insurance. Everyday is exhausting and unbearable. We have repeatedly contacted Boyd Corporate over the work conditions and they have done almost nothing to fix it. They are often rude and difficult to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Boyd corporate is greedy company who is able to buy new casinos but yet cannot afford to pay their a livable wage. I am truly disappointed in Boyd Gaming. They’re willing to hire someone to respond to these reviews with copy and paste answers but are not willing to invest the money into making the job bearable. Bill Boyd seems like a nice guy. It’s too bad his company is awful as it is.

    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Little to none micro-managing; office is across the country from Corporate office; nice desk set up

    Cons

    You don't get paid enough to support yourself, especially for how much they work you into the ground. Lack of communication starting at the top and trickles down. Creative office outsourced in Dubuque is run like a sweat shop. Positions not requiring a Bachelor's degree get paid more than positions that do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bragging about how much money our company has when the majority of our employees have to live paycheck to paycheck.

    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Boyd Gaming is the most professional company I’ve worked for. I completed an internship with them in college and came back a couple of years later for my professional career. Their HR department is extremely professional and they’re on top of the hiring process. Boyd Gaming is resourceful and their salaries are competitive for the type of industry you’re seeking employment. They also believe in giving back to charities and get everyone involved in the causes they support.

    Cons

    I honestly do not have any at this time.

    Advice to Management

    I have none at this time.
