Working at Dave & Buster's is OK

Former Employee - Front Desk/Host  in  Milpitas, CA
Former Employee - Front Desk/Host in Milpitas, CA

I worked at Dave & Buster's part-time for less than a year

Pros

Co-workers were very chill (especially the servers)

Cons

Management does a poor job of scheduling and training its employees, so you're always put in a difficult situation. Also, as a host, you don't get breaks, especially if you're working on a weekend night when it is packed.

    Pros

    Fun place to work at. Co-workers are amazing and the pay is decent for a part time worker

    Cons

    If you are looking for full time this is not the place for you. Management sucks and I can not stand them

    Former Employee - Waitstaff/Bartender in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at Dave & Buster's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you're good at waitstaff / bartending you could easily make $60 to $200 a day (pending time of day and weekend) take home THAT day, including your pay at the end of the 2 weeks which averages around $200.

    Cons

    If you can come to work, not deal with employee drama, and somehow manage to not merge your private parts with your co-workers you will have a pretty okay time here. These guys know how to party.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the improvements on the place! It's looking good!
