Conflicted Workplace
f and b management (Former Employee) –  Black Hawk, COMarch 2, 2013
Company has set values that they give great lip service to, but fail to live up to. However, they will not hesitate to use these as a cross to crucify staff.

Management is the total ELITE on property. Ask them, they really do walk on water!! lol At least they think so!!

The most enjoyable part of the job: the guests!!

Worst part: Management
Pros
if you like dealing with people, great place.
Cons
if you like being treated like a person, look somewhere else.
