Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Good pay for no experience necessary, in my department anyway. Fun atmosphere when you first begin your job. Lively atmosphere.

Cons

There is not much room for moving up. Management often plays favorites at this location when it comes to promotions.

Advice to Management

Offer more pay to employees. We are the lowest paying casino in the area in table games. Always have been for the past 16 years from what I hear.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It was good to experience the many cultures that work at Ameristar.

    Cons

    50+ hour work weeks (managers in other departments worked 40), limited time off given, comps taken away, incompetency of upper management, worked managers during recession to the point of physical exhaustion, and attitude toward human capital went from good to cruel.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back more full time employees. Went from 90/10 FT/PT to 55/45, and hire more managers. I worked in a room that had five managers a couple of years ago and had to go it alone for six weeks while managing another venue.
