BEVERAGE SERVER (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJuly 25, 2015
Pros: 2.50 lunches, full-time benefits
Cons: Cocktail servers outfits and requirements
I can't speak for other positions there, but my position was definitely not worth 4.50 and hour, they work with you on what sections you want to be in but the outfits were way too tight and revealing and requirements of the job were way too high for the hourly pay.

Independent Contractor (Former Employee), houston, txApril 16, 2015
Pros: 1 hour lunch
Cons: only 1 day off
My typical day at work would start by opening the office at 8:15 a.m, the very first thing i would do is clock in, and print out my phone route. as my phone route was printing i would post the over night drop payments. I would call all the customers that were past due and their references until lunch time. I would take phone loan applications and process and approve or deny them. Some afternoons i would do some outside collections field work. Towards the end of the day i would count my cash and clock out at 5:30

Hostess/Cashier (Current Employee), Blackhawk, ColoradoJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: managers and co-workers are like family, experience gained
Cons: long drive, low income, no incentives, low chance of promotion
A typical day at Ameristar starts with opening the cash drawer, setting up the beer stand, positioning the ropes (for the line) and making sure you have everything you need to perform the duties of a cashier. The management is very unorganized and don't seem to agree on all the aspects of the way the restaurant is ran. Co-workers bring too much of their personal lives to work which makes it a very stressful job. The hardest part of the job is making sure your cash drawer is right on the dot and handing out tips to the servers. The most enjoyable part of the job is all the crazy things that happen and when we are extremely busy the servers, bussers and hostess' all come together and help each other out.

Didn't know what I was getting myself into
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), Southlake, TXMay 22, 2013
Pros: n/a
Cons: too far, poor management, no room for advancement.
Ameristar was my first office job, which I was really excited about but I did not have a grasp of what was really going on. I had my interview on a Tuesday morning and was hired on the spot and started working that same morning. It was started off well, I was doing data clerk type of work and shortly after that, I started to research information.

After we moved from downtown Dallas to Southlake, that's when everything started to change. And that's when I realized there was no room for advancement on my end. After months of trying to take on other responsibilities, I decided that I had to move on.

Management was poor, all of management were friends or relatives. If I received positive or negative feedback from my supervisor, it was broadcasted throughout the office and the rest of management would be in the know.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Hermiston, ORMay 19, 2013
Pros: being able to see many of my favorite customers every day
Cons: laziness of employees, favoritism of management, lack of respect from some
At times working was hard. It was a fast paced business with very little advancement opportunity. I believe that management could have been better. I enjoyed working with some of my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with the laziness of some of the employees. However, I enjoyed seeing many of my returning customers and being able to help them in any way that I could.
