Pros

Stable scheduling and decent pay for the job.

Cons

Silly corporate management are quick to estate goofy practices. They also have really squishy spines when some one lies about issues they had, even when they can be proved false.

    I worked at Dave & Buster's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work here will give you a good mix of restaurant, unique venue and events background while also experiencing working with a very large staff. If you take the time to learn as much about the operations and your market as possible, it makes the sales of events very easy and financially rewarding. D&B has a rich culture and also believes in promoting from within when possible

    Cons

    Ever since the first sale to an investment company, the internal structure (and ownership) has been constatly changing making it difficult to feel stable in your job. There is no commission structure for the SEM position; it's all or none based on hitting your monthly budget. This is acceptable in the sales world but really hurts in months like December when you work your tail-end off and might not get a dime. If you aren't able to move it's very difficult to advance your career.

    Pros

    Good Vacation, Decent benefits. Hit bonus at least once a year.

    Cons

    Horrible Hours, Horrible Corporate Assistance, Horrible Upper Management. Upper management creates a negative work place. Company could care less about your personal life. If you don't put them first they treat you terribly. Labor percent is beyond reachable. Managers work into early morning hours washing dishes because labor hours have been cut so bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to handle stress. Learn how to speak with fellow managers and staff members. Create a fun, happy work place.
