    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AMF Bowling part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When it's slow you can usually breathe.

    Cons

    Poor management and training. Extremely stingy about spending. Would rather replace parts on ancient vacuum then buy new one

    Advice to Management

    Train better and have the gms be more help to the floor staff not dictators

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at AMF Bowling full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Developing great relationships with league bowlers and other regulars keeps the job fun

    Cons

    Management is regularly spread thin, hours budget is cripplingly low for some centers, maintenance and renovation is either all-at-once into a Bowlero-style lounge center, or hardly anything at all for older centers.

    Advice to Management

    Invest the resources in centers to grow business instead of scraping the bare minimum to try and beat profits for last year by cutting costs without regard to customer experience.
