    I worked at Dover Downs Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package, very helpful HR department, great mid level management team, and working at a AAA Four Diamond facility looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Singularly focused on generating casino business. Will always be a priority for them instead of the overall guest experience.

    Advice to Management

    Look into diversifying the amenities and activities for patrons and guests.

    Pros

    Company has been a great employer to me. I've been working here for 15+ years and have advanced from an hourly employee to director. I've been given many opportunities and am thankful. Good compensation package. Lots of room for advancement

    Cons

    Alot of micromanagement in the company. Upper management doesn't trust its employees to make good/sound business decisions. Some job postings are already filled with hand picked favorites before the job is posted in house. Discourages some more qualified employees from even applying.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Allow your people a little freedom. They know how to handle money.

    Meet all kinds of people, pay is good, and benefits are good

    working over nite hours and having no help

    There needs to be more communication between supervisors and lower employees.

    Pros

    Loved my time in the casino gaming industry. i opened up with Dover Downs and got to learn a lot from some great people. I will always remember and think back on the great relationships I made with some interesting characters

    Cons

    Some floor people needed to realize that beating on you while your dealing is not the proper way to handle situations, patrons did not need to hear what was going on behind the scenes while they are placing bets

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the ones busting their butts for tokes

    Pros

    Tips you take home every night, discounted prices on food at different restaurants, fun work environment, nice people to work with. Dressing up for certain holidays and events.

    Cons

    Management and Supervisor usually play favorites, work around the clock because open 24 hours, holidays are hard to get off because the Casino is busy during that time, no benefits for part time employees that work full time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being inconsistent with policies, develop better communication amongst you're peers and your employees, Be nice to your staff show us that you appreciate us working hard. Respect employees privacy do not embarass them infront of co workers. Cocktail Servers deal with a lot of different attitudes on a day to day basis we dont need one from our Manger just cause he's in a bad mood.

    I worked at Dover Downs Gaming part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good payscale, Employee financial classes, tax help, and some medical and dental insurance which in the service industry is hard to find. It was a very good job. Fairly flexible scheduling, and a good working environment. They took the time to host holiday parties and always gave a small gift card to all employees. When you have a thousand employees - that is a nice gesture.

    Cons

    Worst HR ever. It seemed they could not answer (or gave different answers) to questions regarding vacation, leave, sick time, points, etc. There was the occasional person in management simply because they had been there "forever" and not because they were qualified. That happens everywhere though.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing major. Its a good company.
