Deckhand, Engineer, Window Washer and Housekeeper (Former Employee), Council Bluffs, IAApril 29, 2015
I clock in, gather needed work equipment and get to working. I learned marine procedures for the boat like cleaning the deck and painting the rails and deck. I also learned how to clean rest rooms and life saving. I had a working relationship with management and my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was staying indoors all day. The most enjoyable part of the job was working outside.

Beverage Server at Ameristar Casino
Beverage Server (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOApril 21, 2015
Pros: Free lunch, 20% off at restaurants, friendly and diverse environment.
Cons: Long hours, leadership needs improvement, lots of cigarette smoke.
A typical work day consisted of balancing a tray full of drinks while walking a vast amount of floor space during a ten hour shift. I approached every guest in my area and offered them drinks and - upon request - cigarettes and snacks.

I learned a great deal about customer service, the casino industry, alcohol tolerance, and patience.

The management team unfortunately has a long way to go with being more involved with their team, communication amongst one another, and listening to their team members' concerns.

My co-workers were great people from various backgrounds and had a lot to contribute. Overall, they were hardworking individuals and dedicated to whatever task was placed before them.

The most difficult part of the job was covering multiple sections within the designated 20 minute round time when serving over 150 guests.

I truly enjoyed the team I worked with. I met a large number of people working at the casino that came from all different parts of the globe and I loved getting to know them.

Ok company, better before buyout
Casino Management (Current Employee), USAMarch 22, 2015
Advancement opportunities are great front line team members but are limited when moving up. Pay is great for some areas but lacking for others. Benefits are good compared to other companies but worse than before buyout.

The culture of the company is good and departments work well together. This is a fast paced work environment and is enjoyable. Work hours are flexible being a 24/7 operation, but expect to work most weekends and holidays.

Terrible
Cook (Former Employee), East Chicago, INMarch 4, 2015
Pros: rate of pay
Cons: unclean
They have an unclean and mismanaged work environment.

Unprofessional through-out the kitchen, the typical day began with me finishing the prior days tasks before I could begin my own.

Poor organization lead to poor performance and overall
job dissatisfaction.

Management allowed the employees to fail
