Beverage Manager (Former Employee) – East Chicago, IN – May 26, 2017
Ameristar was home to me for the better part of 10 years. There was nothing typical about a day at Ameristar. The basic job functions relatively remained the same, however, every day was different. Some days harder than others of course but most days enjoyable. After mastering my primary job, I had the opportunity to learn new jobs. And if I ever thought I had it all figured out the guest would surely prove me wrong. Whether it was a simple request or just an angry complaint, the guest turned this kid who did not particularly like dealing with front of the house issues, to a professional who jumps at the chance to speak, lesson, and make the guest feel validated when we interact.
As an employee, I always thought management could improve in communication. As management, I thought we could improve in communication. I believe communication is a struggle with most major companies, it is also the most important. Any thoughts or idea for improvement in communication within the company should never be overlooked. Everyone within the company is responsible for this.
Besides saying goodbye, the hardest part of the job was the employee’s, coworkers, management, the guest. At one time or another they all made it hard. Although, more times than not, each one of them made it the most enjoyable part. Thank you Ameristar.
Free meals, good benefits, and work was close to home.
Did not always get a break, Parking wasn’t the best.
Was laid off after a company wide meeting about cutting back on work and NOT laying anyone off. Guess my supervisor skipped that meeting. Also, had to clock out for every little break and was required to work a minimum of 45 hours a week. As a working mom who was also pumping/breastfeeding that made pumping at work ever 2-3 hours very stressful. They also rarely commend good work and only point out mistakes.

Cook/Prep (Former Employee) – blackhawk, colorado – March 14, 2017
the job its no to hard, its easy to learn how to do de dishes and take care of the food. I learn how to work under pressure and holidays its the worst days but its fun to keep u busy. te management need to be fixed because they have a lot of chefs for every restaurant, and usually they give u different instruction for how to make your meals so its kind of confuse
Busser (Former Employee) – Black Hawk, CO – August 14, 2016
I was working at the casino under the age of 21 so I will admit I was bored after work and living so far away from the job made things difficult. the co workers were not bad but the management was shaky.
