    I worked at Main Event full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free play cards for employees

    Cons

    Main event is the most unprofessional employer I have ever seen. They removed an employee from the schedule with no reason provided and then 3 days after this was done and only after the employee had been asking multiple people what was going on was the employee notified via text message that they were no longer employed and reason would be provided next week. The multiple times the employee asked, they were told... they needed to speak to Jeremy the manager who had conveniently gone on vacation for a week. The district manager didnt even notify the employee when they called and asked and the response was " Jeremy didnt call you? Oh well he owes you a phone call when he gets back" so yall let someone go and didnt even tell then they were let go until after the fact? HORRIDLY UNPROFESSIONAL

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to let someone go....at least tell them they are fired vs leaving then hanging and just removing them from the schedule.
