Kinda slow going
Security Officer (Current Employee), Columbus, MNApril 27, 2014
Pros: the employees
Cons: bad management, no raises, no advancement
Hard place to work, pay is awful, benefits are worse, management is a joke. I have been there for 6 months and I have began to search for a new job. I have never worked for such a disorganized company. There are no pay raises, Medical is awful. There is no chance for advancement, you are treated awfully by the management. I would skip over applying – more... for Running Aces for any position you are written up if you are even 1 minute late. – less

It was OK, weird environment,
Boiler Operator/ Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Columbus, MNMarch 17, 2014
Pros: free beverages
It was ok, but a lot of politics/ power grabbing, and not much about teamwork and not much in the way of taking care of interior customers.

Horrible place of work! Do not apply!
Surveillance Operator (Former Employee), MNDecember 17, 2013
Pros: coworkers
Cons: everything else
I dont even know where to start... management never gives any good criticism. Its like they are only looking for reasons to write you up and they will. Pay isnt that bad but there is no chance of advancement. The benefits are HORRIBLE. You might as well have no insurance at all. They offer a 401k but match nothing. They expect perfection and if you – more... do the smallest thing wrong they dont let you know what your doing wrong, they just write u up and say fix it. Hr does not do anything whatsoever if you make a complaint so hopefully you don't get sexuality harassed. The only thing that make it bearable is ur fellow coworkers. – less

Growing Company with decent atmosphere.
Supervisor (Current Employee), Columbus, MNNovember 29, 2013
Pros: friendly employees, easy work
Cons: no room for advancement, benefits are bad, minimal if any raises
This is a growing company that will take a long time to turn into a prospering well run company. They have much to improve upon if they want to keep their employees around.

Be willing to work for nothing
Camera Operator (Former Employee), Columbus, MNApril 11, 2013
Pros: can get hired even with zero experience
Cons: zero pay raises ever, can't get off time, have to climb dangerous ladders, expected to stay in 50 ft towers even with tornado warnings going off, lack of hours
The biggest issue is that Running Aces will not pay you anywhere near what you are worth. They expect you to give up your entire summer for 30 bucks a night to drive all the way up to Columbus (And you can't get a night off).

The next issue is that you will NEVER get a pay raise, not even after being there five years. After my first year everyone actually – more... took a 20% pay cut.
No one ever got a raise and no one ever got promoted even after five years.

You have to climb an outdoor slippery, dangerous 40-50ft ladder to get to the camera towers where there is no heat if it's cold and little relief from the heat in summer (they have little A/C units in them that can't keep up). The other issue with these towers is that during bad weather you have to stay 50ft in the air as tornados and lightning are happening all around you until they say you can leave, which is always way to late. (Yes, I've climbed down in pouring rain and tornados before, very slippery) Oh, yeah did I mention if the weather causes the races to get cancelled you get less hours, so you risked your life for 20 bucks.

Don't waste your time with this place.

The only reason to work a camera job here is if you have zero experience, but even then this experience will not help you in the real world. – less

Good place to fill in the gaps
Security Guard (Current Employee), Columbus, MNMay 31, 2012
I have been here for 1 year, the company is hard to advance through and is cheap with its money. The people there are nice and are fun to talk with.

The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with customers.
