Cage Cashier (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 17, 2017
The job itself was good. Management was just ok. They needed to communicate more between each other though. The company did switch Property Managers and he seemed a little more involved and wanted to do that something extra for all the positions on property that didnt always get recognized. Loved the extra stuff they seemed to have going for all the employees year round whether it was food truck day, gift giveaways for the employees, etc. Free basic meals and drinks like cereals, salad bar, ice cream, soups, PB&J sandwiches. Hot meals were still only $2 or $3
always had to work every holiday. nights and weekends were necessary.
Slot Technician (Current Employee) – Saint Charles, MO – February 8, 2017
This company has given me many opportunities including being able to explore different departments within the casino. Being able to interact with different types of people and using my tech skills are some of the things that I enjoy the most.
Valet (Former Employee) – Council Bluffs, IA – January 29, 2017
I miss this job so much. This place was a second home to me. The staff are super cool and friendly, everyone cared for one another like a huge family. This by far was the best job experience i have ever had. I did not feel like I was going to "work." I was going to hang with friends and family to help park cars and help everyone. Hands down the best atmosphere anyone can ask for.
Baker/ Cook (Former Employee) – East Chicago, IN – January 29, 2017
Ameristar was a good working environment, the only thing I really didn't like that didn't give you a chance to grow. it didn't matter how good of a worker they pick and choose who they want to move up and who stays and don't grow
Floor Supervisor (Former Employee) – Saint Charles, MO – January 16, 2017
Working for the casino was the best employment experience I have ever had. The quick moving nature of the business always keeps you on your feet and ready to jump into the action. The pay is great and the training needed for this job is provided at by the company at no cost. There is plenty of opportunity for advancement and pay raises as long as team members are strong and reliable. The company does an excellent job of rewarding the staff with extras to show appreciation for a job well done. The only real downside to this career path is that the casino is always open and busy so personal life has to revolve around you work schedule because you can't pick the hours you want to work.
Facilities Systems Coordinator (Former Employee) – Saint Charles, MO 63301 – December 11, 2016
Day consisted of answering phones, working with outside contractors/vendors. Entered purchase orders. Worked with other departments closely to ensure punchlist items were addressed in a timely manner. Management initially was great, but then through several changes, became very disengaged.
Most of the people, benefits and vacation time was adequate.
Cage Cashier/Main Banker (Former Employee) – Saint Charles, MO – November 18, 2016
It is a very pretty and nice place to work. I liked working there. The place is very big. More has been done to the place since I worked there, (like the hotel opening and the upstairs conference room).
Back then, MO had the loss limit, which they do not have now.
You had more people from different cultures that worked and visited the casino.
Ameristar is family friendly with an arcade for kids and the restaurants are family friendly.
The cafeteria for employees was a nice set up, you could deduct meals from paycheck.
Banquet Captain (Former Employee) – Black Hawk, CO – November 4, 2016
I experienced a wonderful and well run company. Unfortunately, my position was phased out over time. While they were willing to transfer me to a different outlet within the organization, I opted instead of working closer to home.

Security Officer (Former Employee) – Saint Charles, MO – September 23, 2016
The atmosphere is awesome, see something new everyday. Most of the co-workers are friendly. Management sucks and plays favoritism. They don't care about their employees and the pay does not compliment the amount of hours or work put in.
