    Pros

    The company really care about their employees. I work right under the casino host and executive host so I learned alot. All the work we do it pretty easy.

    Cons

    The pay isn't very good and you will work every weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a better rate.

    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time

    Pros

    They provide free beverages for employees.

    Cons

    Hands down the worst company ever worked. No work life balance. Cliques. Management talks about you behind your back and smiles in your face. No training. Minimal PTO and time off.

    I worked at Boyd Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Meeting new people, tips, friendly employees

    Cons

    Management was horrible, they lie about everything, treat you like a child and when you do your job by the Boyd guidelines you are scolded at. I was wrote up several times for again following protocol yep reprimanded for it. At one of the only two employee meetings held in the 6
    Months employed I brought up about how our department was constantly running out of products, several times we ran out of some of the high demand of Brands of beer on a Friday night and yet next shipment would be in until Monday, after speaking about this my boss hurriedly and cut me off saying that only happen once, my jaw dropped because that was a complete lie and showed how they run things. Not to mention how they say they don’t descrimanate yet the only to African Americans in our department got whatever shifts they wanted. One of them never had to work weekends NOR did she have to work any of the so called “Black Out Day’s”!
    Several times I went hours without a break because I didn’t want the customers waiting but after 5 hours running non stop you become dehydrated, we were not allowed to open and 4oz bottle of water to hydrate our mouths!
    They are loosing all their GOOD servers because of the poor management they have staffed there. That’s a WELL KNOWN FACT! I would love to go back but not with they way they run the boat.

    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dealers are paid okay but everywhere else is severly underpaid

    Cons

    Holiday mandatory without even a thank you or extra pay, ridiculous work loads and unreasonable expectations to complete them to corporate satisfaction. Customers are allowed to treat employees poorly without recourse.
