    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bowlero Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunists to work your way up the ladder if you look for them. They are really big on internal promotion.

    Cons

    The customers are a pain and the hours, while flexible, vary a little too much week to week. Pay isn't the best either.
