    I worked at Lucky Strike Lanes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay, hourly employee depth in resources, a real cool fun concept. It's family friendly during the day and 21 plus at night with dancing and some o the best Dj's in the industry.

    Cons

    Development is none existent at the GM level. Managers and hourly employees are only developed according to the commitment of the GM.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with business issues. Never promote an assistant GM to the GM position. In turn demoting the GM to an AGM and keeping that pair of managers working in the business that the GM was demoted in. This creates a hostile work environment for the newly promoted GM. Where the AGM that just lost his job as GM is not going to be supportive of any Changes at minimum. The demoted GM should be transferred out. This is business 101 for rookies a company like lucky Strike should know better as their HR VPbidbone of the best in the business.

    Pros

    I have never loved a job more than this one. It is truly the people who make it but I will say the company does a great job of also connecting locations and managing well. I recommend to everyone to work in the service industry at least once because I have grown so much here. Fun because its not only food but bowling, pool, and special events!

    Cons

    Wish for more parties because most of my income comes from the tips

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, management is very supportive, co workers are very supportive and we are able to look forward to coming into work.

    Cons

    Sometimes things are can hectic and people get a little to stressed over little things, but that is the worst that can come of it. But we are all humans so that kind of things happen. Overall that is the worst that comes of it.
