Beverage (Current Employee) –  Henderson, nvSeptember 22, 2018
Do not work here. They treat you like garbage. Ran this place into the ground a long time ago. The gm is a real piece of work. Lp with a chip on her shoulder. If you like being talked down to and disrespected on regular basis then this is the place for you. They even try to set you up to get fired on the regular.

The Truth
Dealer Dice (Former Employee) –  Northwood, IASeptember 2, 2018
In the casino industry, you will be expected to meet the needs of the guest. So if you are required to stay late because they don't want to close a game, you're stuck. If it's too slow to keep people, you can get out, or be forced out. The hours are poor, and no incentive to work nights. You will be put on a schedule that is the low end of the totem pole, and you will drop the most tips, but you get payed the same as everyone that can't drop a dime.

Negative but easy
Table Games Dealer (Former Employee) –  Mulvane, KSAugust 16, 2018
If you are looking for good pay without a degree, this is a good job, but not a career. Everything else else pretty much sucks about this company but I'll leave it at that.
Pros
Pay and easy work
Cons
Healthcare plus all employees are indisposable, just numbers

Enjoy my job, but I do work hard.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVAugust 9, 2018
As a manager at one of the properties, I do work hard, but enjoy my job. The management staff are friendly, collaborative, and supportive. Staffing is an issue, though. The company in general likes to work with a lean staff which generally means more hands on work, and less supervising, for managers.
Pros
Free lunch at the properties
Cons
Work weekends; sometimes 6 days/week

Great work environment and amazing culture
Graduate Internship (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVAugust 9, 2018
Boyd Gaming offers a great culture, amazing coworkers, an executive team that cares, but has lower than market pay. Benefits also are lacking, high cost healthcare and PTO has been reduced. Despite this Boyd has much lower turnover than other companies within the industry. If you want to be an allstar and get allstar pay, look elsewhere, if you want to be part of a team, look no further.
Pros

Cons

Drop Team Member (Former Employee) –  Mulvane, KSAugust 6, 2018
No training, they throw you right in. Also they all hate new employees and you will be harassed by co workers. If you do get a job here, don't talk to anyone if you can and don't trust anyone. Everyone working here will stab you in the back if given the opportunity. The managers use fowl language on the floor right in front of customers. Very un professional. The HR department have relationships with employees (friendships). This is bad due to the fact if someone doesn't like you, they can just tell HR to get you into trouble. They have a massive turn-over rate and you will know why!
Pros
Pay is ok
Cons
corrupt HR, unprofessional staff, hazing of new employees

I like working there
BOX OFFICE ATTENDANT (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVAugust 2, 2018
It is a fun, exciting and interesting position. It can get a little hectic at times depending on the event happening but overall it is good. The training can get overwhelming when you are first starting.

There always seems that they never have enough help in the different departments. Not a well paid job. Annual raises are very poor.
Sportsbook ticket writer (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 29, 2018
I enjoy the customer interaction with the job I perform. The company has a hard time staffing the Department I work in. I never here positive remarks from other employees, just the negative. Support from management is poor. I feel a better job in communicating can result in a positive work environment.
Pros
Friendly coworkers
Cons
Poor pay rate. Raises very low for time worked for company. Lack of support from management

Just my part of the property
Hostess (Current Employee) –  East Peoria, ILJuly 16, 2018
Nothing is set in stone. Everything is always changing. Some managers are so dependable you never want them to leave while others you wish would actually do their jobs. If you have little to no seniority you wear a uniform. If you are able to have a position like a lead or something else you basically can wear whatever you want. It is friendly to tattoos as long as they are appropriate. Jewelry is basically whatever you want. Piercings and hair have limitations. The best parts of the job can turn into the worst based on what the circumstances are. The customers can be wonderful an almost become family while others treat you like a thief and something they are allowed to stomp on. The coworkers are generally great. There is always something going on and never a dull moment.
Pros
employee discounts, guaranteed breaks
Cons
customer playing card statuses, no more gambling on our property if you like to gamble

IT Intern (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 14, 2018
As an intern Boyd Gaming did it's best to prove to the interns that it is a good company to work for. And it definitely is! In the IT department, things were hectic but everyone was friendly enough to help get things settled. There were hidden conflicts between some people because a lack of communication, but things get settled eventually.
Pros
Flexible lunch schedules
Cons
Pay isn't as high as others
