    the disrespect we see on the floor by guest cause they feel entitled to act like idiots downgrading us, the dealers, and nothing is done

    I have been working at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leadership is very encouraging. Everyone is very kind. The leaders follow through on the companies belief that the team members are what makes the company successful.

    Scheduling can be very flexible depending on your department.

    Free lunch!

    Cons

    I would have liked more training in my current position, sometime I feel like I don't know what I am doing.

    Benefits are a little pricey, but they help make it a little more affordable with RedBrick.

    Sometimes, the lunch offerings aren't that great, but it is free and there are a lot of options. You will not go hungry working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Fun, Exciting, Great people, Great atmosphere

    Cons

    The Meadows has been through many changes in a 10 year period and I can honestly say I have never thought twice about working for another company.

    Advice to Management

    With such a large company, it's important to sick to the core values of Integrity, Excellence, Care, Innovation, and Ownership.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. It is very evident that management cares about their employees and wants to provide a good work environment. We have paid lunch and breaks, free meals, free uniform, inexpensive amazing benefit options, wellness program and many activities for employees. The employee of the year banquet was amazing! It was a fairy tale party where we were treated like royalty. There are many opprotunities to advance. Supervisors and managers are very nice and treat us with respect.

    Cons

    We work weekends and holidays when everyone else is off.

    Pros

    To work for a company that cares about their employees as much as they care about patrons is not that common nowadays. We have many fun things for employees including inexpensive health insurance, free meals on the clock, free uniform, free parking, a wellness program to earn money for health related incurred costs, bring your kids for Halloween and Christmas activities on back of house, talent show... many more! Did I mention the fabulous team member of the year party they prepared for our team members? Truly a great place to work!

    Cons

    We work weekends and holidays when ever this off to come to the casino for fun we are there too!

    I have been working at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I may call The Meadows my second home, but in reality it is my first home. I spend more time in this building with these people than I do in my own home. I'm never sad to come to work. I enjoy coming back to work from my weekends off. I feel lucky to work with this group of people. I consider them some of the best at their jobs - probably in the country.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons. However, since the PNK purchase, it can feel less like a friendly family business and rather more corporate at times.

    Advice to Management

    Have fun with your team members. Trust and respect that your team is capable of great accomplishments. Minimize corporate decisions as much as possible.
