Lack of advancement in senior management.

Office Manager (Current Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO

I have been working at Brunswick Bowling & Billiards full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people, always new and innovative ideas being championed, job security, never bored.

ConsLack of communication between executive management and center management, lack of appreciation for hard work, people who don't do their job never getting criticized while those who try to do more than their share continue to be used without getting fair compensation.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at the people who keep your business running and pay them accordingly. Treat employees who have dedicated the time to the business fairly instead of hiring from outside all the time and paying complete new people with a lack of experience in the field more than 20% more than those who have worked and been dedicated for many years.

Great first job!

Snack Bar Attendant (Former Employee)
Moreno Valley, CA

I worked at Brunswick Bowling & Billiards for less than a year

ProsThe people here become like family, the atmosphere turns everyone into a kid at heart. And the league bowlers tip pretty well if you start remembering what they like/order.

ConsIf management is too strict, this job will suck. Some league bowlers think they deserve the world and will show it. People always leave trash and their bowling balls on the lanes.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not expect your employees, especially those working part time for minimum wage tpbe pprofessionals in asetting like this.

Great until the drama kicked in

Food and Beverage Supervisor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Brunswick Bowling & Billiards full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe people and bowlers become your family. It's a great atmosphere and the discounts can't be beat. All around good time.

ConsSo much unnecessary drama. Seriously, it should be kept out of the workplace. Not much room to move up in the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good job for teens just starting out, but management could be better.

Party Host (Former Employee)
Feasterville Trevose, PA

I worked at Brunswick Bowling & Billiards part-time for more than a year

ProsBeing a Party Host is a good teen job, especially a first one. You get $4.25 an hour and on top of that you get good tips that usually run from $20-$90!

ConsManagement is not helpful, they are always smoking or talking with friends there. They will schedule you for times that you can't work out of spite.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing favorites, try some nicotine patches, and actually help out your employees! You aren't as superior as you think..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great starting job.

Counter Control Operator (Current Employee)
Blaine, MN

I have been working at Brunswick Bowling & Billiards part-time for more than a year

ProsFairly easy and entertaining work, good co-workers, cheap bowling.

ConsLack of regulated breaks, often understaffed.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow for more freedom to GM's to make decisions they think will improve their centers. Being overstaffed is much better than being understaffed
