Pros

A great environment, my teammates and I were like family, and spent as much time together outside of work as at work. Plenty of opportunity for advancement.

Cons

Seniority based scheduling kind of stinks, but wasn't a huge issue. Employee of the Month was given to whoever hadn't had it in a few months, not based on performance. Many expectations for a minimum wage job.

Advice to Management

Employees need a better incentive program than earning pins and stickers. Our customers are children, we are not.

  1. Good company to work for, but high turnover rate due to pay and labor restrictions.

    Pros

    Fun environment for the most part, good intra-company communication, high focus on guest satisfaction, decent benefits, and high expectations for management.

    Cons

    Strict labor guidelines, high turnover rate, raises are hard to get and low in increase, long work weeks for store management, and pay could be more proportionate to work load.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay for cast members, and larger raises for store management that show commitment.

  2. I wish it was like it used to be.

    Pros

    Depending on the store you work in, it can be fun. Too busy of a store means all work and rarely any play. Not that we play at jobs, but being so busy all day it's hard to squeeze in a lunch break. Birthdays were the most fun, Gameroom isn't bad either, just lots of cleaning. Cashier/prize counter is only fun if you really like to deal with people and can multi-task. Kid Check gets boring unless your managers give you stuff to work on when no one's coming in, it's also an important position b/c kids try to get out a lot not knowing where they're going. And kitchen, is fun but dirty, and crazy hectic in a busy store...memorize your stuff or you'll drown.

    Cons

    Busy. The company really makes managers push the employees. The goal is to run the restaurant with as few employees as possible, which I understand, but a lot of times the guests don't and fuss at how we're "always understaffed" when we're not. The stores expectation of cleanliness is high, so there's no cutting corners. Employee raises need to be demanded several times usually, due to the company trying to keep to the bottom line. Anyone that goes to a chuck e cheese needs to imagine what it would be like working there, and if they have an issue, don't yell at the employee, go straight to the manager. The employees mostly do what theyre taught, and don't deserve to be mistreated in a stressful environment like CEC. I would only recommend this job with full warning to potential employees about what the job entails.

    Advice to Management

    Merits. Recognization. Communication. Listen. Help the team. Do your job with integrity and expect that from your team. Work together Managers!
