    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Main Event full-time

    Pros

    It’s a mixed bag with as many supervisors/managers as they have, but in general it’s a good group of people

    Cons

    They had a lot of trouble staying busy at my location and as a server there’s no guarantee that you make any money if people aren’t coming in and ordering food

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Main Event full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great money, fun enviroment, flexible schedules,

    Cons

    Bad turn over rate, management, lack of appreciation, no raises, slow during school year

    Advice to Management

    I loved working there be I feel that the management team needs to learn how to communicate with each other and the team. Every manager should be on the same page and have the same expectations for the employees.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility, money is there if you want it

    Cons

    Late hours, management is disconnected, corporate doesn't care for operation managers

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be for the corporate offices: appreciate your operation managers more, provide them with a better work/life balance; when managers are disengaged, that falls onto the employees as well
