    Pros

    Coworkers are very personable and work together very well. Communication is great and everything that needs to be addressed is always addressed in a timely fashion and as a team.

    Cons

    After working at Sky Zone for a year, team members who are still with the company get a raise. A whole seventeen cents an hour. We were supposed to get raises every 6 months, but that never happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the environment is (at times) pretty fun, the management staff has poor communication skills. They spend most of the time on their cell phones playing games or texting or in the office browsing Facebook which will immediately change to a work-related tab once they realize someone else is coming in to the office. On top of their disregard for policies set in place by the franchise owners to only use cell phones or computers for work use, they never tell each other what is on their mind. Instead, they tell us what they want and often, what they want conflicts with what the other managers are saying. As people, they are nice, but their ability to run a business is seriously lacking. They need to stop being buddy-buddy with each other and get their act together.

    Pros

    A really entertaining job with fun people and a great atmosphere
    Get to jump for free whenever you want
    Easy to get the job

    Cons

    Management is absolutely horrible. all of the managers have their favorites and if you are not one then you are screwed. The managers are 20 year olds with a college education who have no clue how to manager themselves let alone other people. Also, if you wok really hard you are rewarded with nothing. All of the managers have their favorites and they don't know how to interact with their employees. They direct you like you are just mindless workers. They are certainly not leaders and have obviously let the power go to their heads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to actually manager rather then just telling the employees what to do. The managers should be leaders not directors telling everyone what menial task to do next while they sit in their office and look on instagram. Pay attention to the hard working individuals because they will become necessary to make the company successful.

    Pros

    It all comes down to ownership, a good team and good review system, accountability from managers, the skies the limit with this company.

    Cons

    If the team is not on top of reviews, and rewarding employees that are working hard, just like any company it will suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication, communication, communication.

    Pros

    Really fun and once you know what to do, it's easy. Lots of employee get togethers. Get to jump for free with one other person and three additional jumpers are half price.

    Cons

    The uniforms kinda suck. The one in Vegas only allows you to where khaki or black pants that have to be dickies material.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much drama. Don't have favorites.

    Pros

    People are mostly friendly and willing to help out. Very flexible with scheduling after you've been there for a while. I'm in college now and my manager has no problem with me only working a few days a week. If the managers like you, you wont have any management problems.

    Cons

    If the managers don't like you, then any little thing you do wrong will blow up. Also, you could get screwed scheduled wise with no shifts.

    I worked at Sky Zone

    Pros

    High energy place, very excited clientele. Staff is very nice and understanding. Treat work and it's employees with respect and in turn you will be as well.

    Cons

    Job is pretty monotonous...not much changes. If a trampoline breaks you may have to replace it and that can be a pain. Customers fairly often do not respect authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at this location was superb...for the job and it's environment I can't see any additional advice they need.

    Pros

    A fun place to work. 21st Century scheduling system so it's easy to pick up or trade shifts.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. Constant threat of being fired. Didn't even break any rules, and a manager walked up to me and threatened to fire me. And there always issuing memos saying if you break certain rules you'll be terminated immediately. And have signs in break room saying you'll be fired if you do certain things. Not really motivating stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually work with lower employees, or let your prescence be know. Supposed Store Manager walks up to me, never seen him there in months that I worked there and threatened to fire me, cause I let the kids change a dodgeball rule, when we already don't play by the official rules by letting the kids start off with the balls, and not have them waiting in the center.

    Pros

    You can get a lot of hours if you want them.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE management! They choose favorites. They are uneducated and most didn't go to college. They do not care about how you feel. I worked there for 4 months and the managers didn't know my name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please mature and communicate better.
