    I have been working at Main Event full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company has challenged me personally and professionally. I have learned so much about the industry, the business, leadership in general, and about myself through the great leaders of this organization. It’s a rapidly growing, ever-expanding, brand that has tons of opportunities for advancement. If you ever get the opportunity, join us. It will be the ride of your life. Everything I have I owe to this job.

    Cons

    This is a difficult position, very long hours, tons of stress, it’s not for the faint of heart. If you’re an inexperienced manager, do not apply. You won’t make it through the training.
