    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AMF Bowling part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Discount on food, free bowling sessions

    Cons

    Rude customers, customers who don't tip on expensive tabs, lousy base pay for somewhere that has customers who don't tip, never enough people because the work is hard with little to no compensation. Also, you don't get your discount unless you're working. If you come in to use your free bowling games, you can't get anything to eat or drink unless you want to pay full price!
