slot attendant (Former Employee) – Dover DE – August 15, 2013
The hardest part of the job is staying motivated when it feels like bosses only look for what they can write you up for. Second hardest is walking all day and not really being able to talk to your coworkers without being called into the office for it. The most enjoyable part of the job is other employees and some of the fantastic customers.

Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Dover, DE – January 25, 2017
Dover Downs can be a fun place to work, the customers for the most part are awesome. I worked various hours many times staying late when other servers wanted to leave early. Unfortunately, I have to give management a bad review. When dealing with internal issues, they fail to effectively solve the problem. The lack of integrity is a growing issue. They continue to hire people with poor work ethics.

The managers don't seem to know what they are doing. In my whole time of working there, there was favoritism. HR office wont take care of harassment issues in the work place. The income was the only thing that kept me there.

dover downs inc. was an aweful place to work, we were mistreated in wages and benefits. staff was friendly for the most part, but we were understaff almost all the time. I learned how to cope with stressful situations better, how to work effectively with my coworkers in order to get the job done. still though, it could have been a better experience.

Very great work place and overall good experience. There were always workers and managers available to help aid with a smooth work experience. Everyone worked together as a team to achieve our goals and making the customers happy with the experience at our establishment.
Pantry Cook/Cashier (Current Employee) – Dover, DE – April 19, 2016
It is very unprofessional and the coworkers are terribly rude. Management do not care about the staff. There is a high turn-over rate and the hardest part of the job is walking on egg shells around the managers.

Dual-Rate Main Bank Cashier/Cage Supervisor (Former Employee) – Dover, DE – June 22, 2015
Not the type of place for a person with kids because there is no balance of work and family life. Pay doesn't always compensate for the work that you do. But I had the best management team in my department!
