Pros

Overall i would say the job is interesting in that you can never predict what you will encounter each day.

Cons

PAY!! There's no structure what so ever in getting reviews or raises. Example- a employee that has been working for 4 months can get a raise over someone who has been there for 4 years! Mangement terribly incompetent.

Advice to Management

Make sure management is COMPLETELY trained for there position before putting them out on the floor to actually manage other employees. Take care of your best employees(pay them) instead of taking them for granted and trying to use them as much as possible.

    Pros

    As a manager you get free games and can let your family play. It is high volume fast pace. You work long hours but they fly by most of the time.

    Cons

    tough to advance. They will hire people from outside with GM experience and promote them ahead of internal promotes. Also the way responseabilities are broken up it almost impossible to get time to learn the finacial side of the business which is what they will say is the reason they promoted someone one from out side GM roles past you.

    Advice to Management

    Your internal promotes are hungry to prove themselves. Have training classes to help develope them on finacial aspects of running the business.

    Pros

    You learn how to defend yourself. You become really good at comforting other employee while they are having an emotional break.

    Cons

    The management team will treat you badly. They don't care how customers treat you. They can call you names threaten you and you are still made to take care of them. Numerous managers will make fun of employees to other employees. Certain parts of the year they come out with a hit list and will follow employees around till they see them do something wrong and then fire them. Completely based on favoritism. When you bring issues to their attention the will tell you to get over it. Expected to work 16 hr days and you have to cry out of hunger and exhaustion to get a break.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you want to be treated. Ask God for forgiveness. Stop acting like Gods you're no better than anyone else.
