Dave & Buster's – Why Work For Us?

EAT. DRINK. PLAY. 

Fun at Dave & Buster's means dining on great food. Grabbing a drink with friends. And winning big. Real big. Best of all, once you've been to Dave & Buster's, the fun stays with you. 

Dave & Buster's is the place for great food, signature drinks & one-of-a kind fun under one enormous roof! With beautiful private rooms, full service AV, bars, a world-class billiards table, and over 250 of the latest and greatest games, plus teambuilding activities, there's no better place to take your team to eat, drink, and play!




D&B is off to another amazing year. Our people, profits and new stores could not look any better! Management turnover is low 20%, (unheard of for a company that averages ten million and closes late on the weekends!) our Internal promotions are over 30%, (our development programs rock) and yes, we have a High Potential program which enables experienced professionals that perform well to move quickly into leadership positions.

Want to hear more about the fantastic opportunities at Dave & Buster's? Since January 2013, we have added over 1,500 new positions and plan to add 2,500 more by the end of 2015. If you like encouraging team members to be their best and ensuring guests have the perfect atmosphere to have fun, we probably have a job for you!

Working at D&B is far more exciting than working for an ordinary restaurant. Each store has four revenue streams - Eat, Drink, Play, Watch, One hundred and fifty hourly employees and ten plus managers that will get your blood pumping. Even better, check out the new design of our stores. Our new stores will WOW you upon entry and our renovated stores offer the same D&B fun but in a fresh new way. Did I mention that we are breaking through the borders as we launch our international expansion! We have opportunities for Front of the House, Back of the House, Special Events Sales and Amusement Managers (Our Amusement Managers are technical specialists that ensure our Midway is always ready for play.) And, we are just as serious about our food as we are our fun. We serve a great variety of tasty new American gourmet food. So if you think you might be qualified to join our management team or our hourly team, contact our recruiting team. You'll love the challenge. Why just work? When you can work and have fun!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dave & Buster's (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied back in May and didn't hear back until three months later. Went for an interview after getting an email from the manager who also interviewed me, got asked a bunch of basic questions. I was seated in the dining area and it was loud and pretty casual. After that, he told me to come in again a few days later for another interview. I was then interviewed by who I think was the hiring manager. It was very casual.
