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

    Pros

    Wonderful customer's. A good place to meet good people.

    Cons

    employees have to basically beg for lunch and or breaks. Management makes it obvious that hourly employees have no say so. If an hourly employees says too much, their hours are cut or the employee simply gets fired.

    Advice to Management

    To take suggestions from employees since we are always on the floor. Listening to some suggestions to better moral would make shifts run smoothly.

    Pros

    Cant think of any besides the fact you might see a celebrity or two.

    Cons

    They don't train appropriately. They don't staff appropriately. As a server it is important to give great customer service, therefore, you would hate to be thrown at you multiple tables at once in different sections. It just wasn't organized.

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

    Pros

    Location in Sherman Oaks is the only thing that could be considered a pro. RUN as far as you can, horrible people in home office leading the company.

    Cons

    Dishonest environment, a true example of... it's not what you know it's who you know. Quid pro quo, favoritism, nepotism (how does a part time marketing manager make a full time salary). Investors beware... definitely creative accounting, RUN! If you decide to work for this company besure to have a backup plan. Not for the career oriented, may be good for someone still at home with no real bills to worry about, but don't count on being able to support yourself or family long term because they don't think strategically for the long term. Put something in play, tinker a little bit, then pull the rug out from everyone with no warning. Very poor leadership at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give so much power to glorified secretaries (Executive Directors), what a joke, in the home office.


  7. "About what you'd expect"

    Pros

    - Decent pay when there is a perfect storm
    - The opportunity to network with clients in your related field
    -Cool uniform

    Cons

    -90% of employees use phones during shift leaving the others to pick up slack
    - Favoritism through fraternization
    -Hard workers are put on the back burner as compared to the lesser
    -Most employees date each each other
    -Clients constantly complain about the never changing playlist and the climate
    -Illegal call-offs
    -No room for growth unless your buddies with lower and mid level management
    -Most management has plans to jump ship if they haven't already

    Advice to Management

    Submit to human resources for review. This type of situation shouldn't be a future one. This is coming from a proven top performer .

    I worked at Lucky Strike Lanes (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people where nice. And they will hire people with little to no experience.

    Cons

    We got little to no training. People would not show up for half their shifts and not get fired. There where always to many people scheduled for the amount of customers we had. I would only make $60 in tips after a 10 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees better. Actually try to promote the business so servers can make money.
