I worked at Monkey Joe's part-time (More than 3 years)
It was enjoyable to see little kids having fun, especially when there was a cute kid you could play with. I enjoyed the types of people that were also employed. It wasn't too hard a job. As a party host, you made minimum wage plus tips on birthday parties that were $200+ so you would get a hefty tip on occasion.
There were good and bad days, but the bad days were much more memorable. The company can't control the demographics allowed in the company but sometimes as a referee you held more responsibility than you should have. The hours were such a long shift sometimes and with screaming kids everywhere, it sucked. Work was busiest on the weekends so you had to give up your entire weekend. Cleaning up often sucked too because there would be popcorn everywhere on the floor. It probably varies per location but the management played favorites a lot which was unfair.
