It was perfectly great workplace especially as for your first job.
Cook/Prep (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 January 2018
Everyday was good to work because of being already used to doing and making pizzas. I’ve learned almost everything about pizzas and how much kids love them. Management was always perfect because he was fair to everyone. Hardest would be the maximum number of kitchen person would be 2 but its still too many. Being busy is what makes it more harder. The most enjoyable would be where you make different kinds of pizza everyday and gets to see its different outcomes.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Whitby, ON11 January 2018
Not a big fan of kids but working at Chuck E. Cheeses was fun at times. Had to deal with the parents that would not listen to anything I said mainly worked behind the ticket counter, most kids didn't understand that their 5 tickets could not get them the 75,000 ticket price and many parents didn't either.

It was exciting and it makes me feel like a little kid again working there, cause there’s so many cute and adorable kids and seeing them laugh is such a nice upbeat environment.

Birthday Party Hostess (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC20 November 2017
Terrible managment that will push you beyond your pay grade into the depths of despair.
After a year of employment, they refused to retrain me in any other department when requesting more hours.

I have learned a lot about customer service while working at Chuck E. Cheese. I have learned the importance of making sure all guests expectations are met and then exceeded.

Crew Member (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 September 2017
A typical day at work consisted of me clearing tables and serving food for most of the shift. I learned how to treat customers with respect. Management would change a lot and got confusing sometimes when they both expected different things.
Pros
Good work experience
Cons
Didn't receive enough shifts

awful work place
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Langley British Columbia Canada12 August 2017
I never felt welcome at work, the management was terrible and the coworkers weren't respected. I did enjoy talking to customers. that's what helped me get through my day. if I've learnt anything is work somewhere where your managers respect you as a person and coworker
Pros
free food
Cons
not treated well

Gameroom Activities
Gameroom Attendant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 August 2017
When working at Gameroom it may become hectic. But when things die in the store it is always fun to play with other kids and host friendly events for prizes.

Fun place to work
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK11 July 2017
Definitely a fun-loving place but people of all age groups. The work environment is very friendly as you get to interact with many old and new customers on a daily basis and develop your customer service and interpersonal skills. The best part is assisting kids and their parents with different kinds of purchase at the food area and the toy section. In sum, a great place to work!
Pros
Discount meals and lots of games
Cons
Music is always loud!

Great Management, Bad Pay
Party Host (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON23 June 2017
No chance of getting a raise. You work extremely hard for minimum wage. Other than that 3 out of 4 managers are amazing. One is an idiot who does not know what he's doing, the rest are there to help you.
Pros
Great staff and management
Cons
Hard work, bad pay

Was very busy on weekends. Management was slacking and didn't help employees much during busy hours. You were expected to do many duties and multitask.

limited career growth oppertunities
