    I have been working at Main Event Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow within the company if you work hard. The people are fun, and make it an enjoyable work place environment.

    Cons

    The commission is not that great. The sales incentives aren't that impressive either.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to roll out better sales incentives for the Event Coordinators instead of making them share their commission. Commission is based off of the hours you work, but someone might not have made any sales during their shift, while another person might have booked tons of events and worked really hard on their shift. Since the commission is split between everyone it's not very fair.

    Pros

    There are truly none that I can think of.

    Cons

    Management is only looking to put a band-aid on the issues that continue on here. There is a complete lack of professionalism which results in the high turn over rate in numerous departments.

    They do not care if the employees are treated like scum with certain guests.

    I have been working at Main Event Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits for part time, especially for HS students. Fun work environment and good on getting you hours. Definitely career building opportunities as well as felxabilty.

    Cons

    The staff that worked there was pretty terrible. The managers are okay, but they are usually ordering you to do conflicting things. So you have to pick which one to listen to. Bad at bonuses, and pay kind cheap for hourly workers. Require you to train other employees, but they won’t really reward you for doing so. It’s just a burden. Some co-workers were cool, others were annoying and drama orientated.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your hourly staff more. Especially the high school kids.
