I worked at AMF Bowling part-time (More than a year)
You really learn time management skills and meet a lot of great people. There are some employee benefits but they are not great. You also get a really good idea as to how a business really works.
They overwork and under staff you. This is not management's fault, but rather corporate's fault. They raised all of their prices, changed their policies, and you really seem like you are just a number and not a person. Working for AMF, I did not feel like a valued employee from corporate and the may they run things also make it seem like they do not care about the customer and want to squeeze every little bit out of them. With the recent acquisition of Brunswick, most of the staff left because of the terrible changes. Additionally AMF only hires people 18 years and older, and expects them to have years of experience in customer service yet will only pay them minimum wage. The hours are long and staff are overworked. I used to enjoy working there until AMF took over. They also decided to no longer have DJs, LIve bands, or any other live entertainment. Everything is "loss prevention and cost cutting." The employee food discount was lowered from 50% to 25% off already ridiculous prices. However there is a $5 employee menu that is sub par and does not include much. $1 bowling and $1 shoe rental for employees. Terrible health plan, and not much else. This is a bowling alley yet they try to treat it as if it is a high end place.
Advice to Management
Management performed well and did their job duties. They enforced corporate decisions but were always on the fellow employee's sides. These guys and gals deserve to be paid way more than they are.
