Daily work events
Security Officer (Current Employee), Jackpot, NVDecember 16, 2014
Pros: employee oriented
Cons: travel
My work day consisted of walking on average 6miles, watching out for guests who were underage, had had to much to drink and were sleeping on the floor or possibly becoming a distraction to other guests having a good time and in checking roooms on all floors. I was also involved in transporting large amounts of money from the bank to the tables and walking guests from the floor to the bank if need be, to collect their winnings.

Productive and intense work atmosphere but fun
Payroll Administrator (Former Employee), 8930 Howard Hughes Parkway, Las Vegas, NvNovember 14, 2014
A typical day at work is to organize your tasks and hit the floor running. I learned that a little thank you and I appreciate you goes a long way. Management was supportive. My co-workers work well together. Nothing was too hard, everything was routine with minor adjustments here and there. Posting payroll by deadline was the most enjoyable part of the job.

There is a Pool table in the breakroom
Dealer (Current Employee), Kansas City, MONovember 5, 2014
Pros: $2.50 for all you can eat
Cons: dealing with the public
I deal cards at a Casino, so i work with people all day. My co-workers are nice most of them. The rude ones don't make us any tips. And they get more hours then me. The hardest part of my job is physically taking peoples money from them daily. The most enjoyable part of my job is when people win. :) But then they don't give you any money on blackjack they're just like thanks for the $900 bucks. I don't get my 40 hours a week and no overtime that is why I'm looking for a new job.

Money is the Motive
Hostess (Current Employee), Lake Charles, LAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: can pick up shifts
Cons: no chance for growth
All anyone seems to care about is making money. I find it hard to do my job when I can not rely on my coworkers to follow protocol because an opportunity presents itself for them to make more money.

Productive, nice place to work, people are good to work with.
Inventory Control Associate (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOMay 21, 2014
Verify inventory in the warehouse, also verify invoices for A/P on a daily basis. My day may consist of filing, contacting vendors, assist warehouse team when needed.
Work with management on a daily basis. Good people to work with, fun company to work for, month end can be exhausting at times only because so many deadlines to meet for the most part my job is pretty simple.

Pros: nice parking garage

Nice place to work, not a lot of opportunity to advance in my career. Enjoyed all my co-workers and my time there. Lost the Pinnacle culture after the Ameristar merger of 2013.

Horrible place, Horrible Pay, Horrible Discounts/Benefits
HR (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 17, 2014
Pros: free lunch
High Turn Over and team members are paid pennies. Unfair treatment by management. Will work you outside of your job description and overload you with work. River City Casino is not a good place to be employed. HR department is full of dysfunction.

Lousy place to work for hard workers and contributors
Surveillance Agent (Former Employee), Harvey, LouisianaApril 2, 2014
Pros: great people working there
Cons: no idea who their best employees are and don't seem to care
Promotions based purely on who you know not what you know.
Company employs older employees but does not give them
equal consideration for advancement. Allows harassment of
whistlleblowers even if monitoring employees is part of your job.
Poor pay, double standards, constant cutbacks. Fire employees
at any time for any reason. Do not respect contributors or hard
workers.

ok workplace...security is horrible!!!!!!!!!
former valet attendant (Former Employee), Saint louis, MOJune 30, 2013
Pros: free less supervision
Cons: bad food, human resource is horrible too!!!!
overall my experience working there was fun but was drama! co worker dislike you because they have problems and is unstable with themselves.
made enough money by tips only very beginning but as months rolled, tips were slow or no body wanted to tip. I hear they will sell casino downtown but i don't know.
food was horrible. cooks did not want do their jobs seems like they were only for getting paid.
as for valet pay should have been bit more than a bad pay and barley enough checks to get by. least the cashiers of valet made more and decent.
