      Pros

      From the very first day I started I was made to feel like part of the family. The energy, comradery, and talented people make work incredibly fun! I am confident in the leadership and the vision to take the company to new heights and its an exciting time to be with the company. Love coming to work every single day and I can truly say its a company unlike any other.

      Cons

      We are a growing and building team so there is a lot of responsibility and not a lot of people to handle all the work.

      Pros

      Working at CEC entertainment is a job with tons of upside and growth! In just two years I was able to go from cast member to General Manager.

      Cons

      Working in the entertainment industry requires most weekends to be available.

      Pros

      -Meeting great people -Seeing all the kids have a blast -Great management in store, the GM when I left absolutely deserved her position. -Move up from within -Hands on training and everyone is always willing to help or answer any question you had. -Every opportunity to cross train into ANY position, allowing you to net hours anywhere since you can do ANYTHING! The team was always happy to build great employees.

      Cons

      -The parents are the worst part of it, nothing is ever good enough and it is ALWAYS your fault. -The suit -Ever changing impossible standards from higher ups.

      Pros

      Good pay, good benefits, clear direction from upper management. The company itself is very well structured.

      Cons

      You have to manage a staff composed predominantly by teenagers, which can itself be a challenge. P&L is tight so you should expect to run a tight ship if you want to bonus. The schedule isn’t the best as weekends are pretty much always required; and if you don’t have your staff in place, be prepared to work long hours.

      Undertrained/Overworked

      Jul 26, 2021 - Assistant Technical Manager in Altamonte Springs, FL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You get to eat pizza and see families have fun. You play the games daily. Yearly review but raises are not guaranteed. Full time usually guarantees 34-40 hour work week. Starting pay is $12 as of 2020/21. Great starter job for High schoolers.

      Cons

      Training is dependent on Technical Manager but there is NO way to be promoted unless a Technical Manager leaves/quits. All HR complaints against employees usually end with an apology but no real change (unless it makes the company look bad legally, then they’ll take action). ALL Gossip moves like wildfire and if it’s deemed as bullying, they’d rather fire the complainer rather than the problem employee. Most employees would rather stay silent for fear of losing their job and complacency allows the issue to go unchecked which WILL happen. If a blond, Caucasian female with a right arm tattoo & a flower foot tattoo IS the General Manager, DO NOT apply.
