    I worked at AMF Bowling full-time

    Pros

    Meet some new people, alright bonus structure.

    Cons

    No support from corporate. No training. Expected an Assistant Manager to run the desk, open and run the kitchen and be a lane server. They expect them to do that for not so great pay.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff, don’t run so tight on labor.

    I have been working at AMF Bowling part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is awesome. The most caring team I had, most especially Dr. Burke. I enjoy working with him, together with Mr. Vernon, Ms. Elana, and Ms. Sherley.

    Cons

    Though I know that the center is undergoing renovation, I sometimes feel sickly because of the condition inside the center. Its hot on the one half of the center, while cold on the other half, and also the odd smell may be due to the old molded carpet.

    Pros

    Fun environment
    Bowling
    Food that is bad for your health

    Cons

    The DM's are never around and every idea they have is "the next big thing" but it really is just the next bad thing.
    The home office, mainly HR, is a mess. Files sent over never seem to get updated and when you need help from them they ghost you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
    If something seems to be working when growing leagues, DO NOT CHANGE IT!
