It can be fun but it can be awful....
Cashier (Current Employee) – Evansville, IN – January 9, 2013
I have worked for Aztar for a few years now. For the most part, I like my job and meeting all the people who come up to me. There's such a great diversity and I love all the cultures that come in to visit. On the other hand, I have never been more talked about in my life. The gossip is rampant and while it's really in every work environment, it seems to be worse here than another place I've seen. If you just want a job where you can earn a paycheck and go home, then by all means, apply! The pay is mediocre and for all they pay out monthly for jackpots, you'd think they'd pay the employees more. I know of people who have been there for four+ years and only making $10 an hour! They do offer full health benefits after 90 days and while the health insurance is massively expensive, the vision and dental is amazing. They also offer a great HSA program in which they give you $200-$400 a year for any medical related expenses. If you're even a minute late, you're docked a quarter of a point. It isn't the world's best job or company but it's a job when you really need one.
decent restaurants, full time hours, diversity and tolerance, full benefits after 90 days, 15%-50% discounts on food, depending on which restaurant
underpays employees severely, sometimes bad hours (a lot of swing shifts), point based attendance policy with no grace period on time; very unattractive "costumes", expensive health insurance if you have a family
