    Pros

    I love the jobs as a whole I've developed life long friendships with the other cast members and the job has taught me a lot.

    Cons

    They rely to heavily on the Game Attendent. And the road show ruins the pace of the game attendants job. They don't really understand I'm only one person and I can't do everything at once.

    Advice to Management

    Make the other cast members help out or hire someone to free lance between positions stop relying on your game attendent to do everything.

    Pros

    They are very flexible on the days and hours you can work. Learn alot about customer service.

    Cons

    There is no way to move up unless you kiss up to an extreme. They dont like giving many hours to employees. Raises are almost impossible to get.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better

    Pros

    Some friendly staff, customers are often wonderful. Environment can be very clean and friendly; very fun at times.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, despite hard efforts of climbing to climb the ladder. Management clearly favors long term employees no matter how much years of experience you have in the field of position.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to make sure employees are taken care of, stop trying to cheat employees out of opportunities and desire for growth. When clearly some employees want to make a difference in the work place but are not being given their dues to do so.

    It's a fun place to work with fun co-workers. Was my first job and don't plan on leaving for a while.

    Some times our hours got cut a lot and managers did are job. Our managers left a lot and got a lot of different people

    Advice to Management

    Work on balancing hours between everybody. Giving everyone a chance to get better at there job before giving up on them

    Pros

    Camaraderie, flexible hours, good food, friendly staff, fun time.

    Cons

    Short-staffed on occasions. Closing would have you finishing at one or two in the morning.

    Pros

    Good job for high school and for a first time job. Fun environment for someone who likes working with young children.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment, low pay, low hours, small advantage to move up, no benefits unless you become a general manager.

    Advice to Management

    Understand this is not a company you would want to invest your career in. Most of the people who work here are high school students, or adults just looking for a little extra cash. Its hard to expect excellence from a company that gives employees no incentives for doing well.


  8. You have to suck their d*ck to move up.

    Pros

    Friendship
    Improves communication skills
    Allows you to open up as a person
    Teaches you how to move at a fast pace
    Lots of benefits (making extra food by mistake becomes lunch)

    Cons

    Sexual harassment
    Unprofessionalism among managers
    @ss kissing for promotions
    Lots of yelling
    Smells like feet
    Restaurant can be really dirty in a matter of seconds
    Poor workmanship

    Advice to Management

    In the job application, there needs to be a disclaimer that says,"Managers may sexually harass you and they won't lose their jobs, but you just might" You need to check with your managers and evaluation them and explain to them the consequences of f*cking with other employees including minors.
    Promotion should be based on skill and commitment, not the relationship you have with the individual.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and a great environment for high schoolers and college kids to work part time. Closing and opening checklists make the job very easy to understand and makes it easy on first time workers.

    Cons

    The only thing constant about chuck e. Cheese is change. That is one of their Motos and it is very true. I worked their for 10 months and we changed the way we made the pizzas 3 times and a lot of other stuff changed constantly too.

    Advice to Management

    The advancement to team 2 was not handled very well. It didn't seem like there was a system for that like there was everything else. If took people over 6 months to become team 2 once they started the process.
