I worked at Ameristar Casinos part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Work independently, your ideas are taken into consideration (since you often interact with customers alone), get to set up displays how you want them, decent pay for retail, good money-handling experience

Cons

Can be isolating on slow days without anybody to talk to, often people will come in while others are gaming just out of boredom and just talk to you or rant to you, are in charge of opening/closing/all cleaning on own, not much room to move up in such a tiny department, hours can change frequently and inconveniently (probably true of any casino job), management is often not present for any questions/input

Advice to Management

Get a door so customers can't sneak in/out of gate when opening and closing is in process, increase the lighting so it isn't so dim (causes sleepiness)

    I worked at Ameristar Casinos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Networking to move on
    Initial advancement opportunities
    Fun atmosphere and chances to meet great guests
    Supervisors were very aware of the work

    Cons

    Management had no idea half of what was going on
    Employee exit surveys did nothing to help get the hotel management back under control
    Hotel Director did not even know how to work the computer system

    Advice to Management

    Use the surveys to your advantage. Also, maybe consider reading reviews from Trip Advisor. If guests constantly complain about specific people in management, maybe a closer look should be taken.

    I worked at Ameristar Casinos part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Did a good job making training for different games readily available to learn. Easy to move up in seniority, which makes for a better schedule that can fit your private life.

    Cons

    High turn over in employees, due mostly to poor management style and higher pay at competitive casinos in the area. Felt like management spent way too much time looking for ways to fire their employees.
