Customer service (Former Employee), Ontario, CA – September 29, 2014
Pros: great money and great atmospher
Cons: breaks werent long enough
every day was different with where in the restaurant you were placed but hours were great. multitasking was one of the biggest things i learn there and memorization. coworkers were always helpful and considerate. hardest part about it was the late hours. the money was the best part.
Department Trainer (Former Employee), Vernon Hills, IL – September 17, 2014
Pros: fun work enviorment, great coworkers
Cons: no breaks, unreal expectations
I learned a lot about kitchen sanitation, rules and regulations involved in working with food. My department was the prize section and the most enjoyable part of my job here at Dave & Busters was the look on peoples faces when they found out how many tickets they won. The management team was not the best, they seemed to be all over the place and showed – more... signs of disorganization, I got along with my management staff very well despite the problems they had as a team. My coworkers are the reason I stayed longer because they were so happy all the time and we all made the best out of the hectic workdays. It was an overall fun place to work when working with the people in each department versus working with management. – less
Server (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MN – September 15, 2014
Giving excellent guest service. In this role I have to push sales, identify up-selling opportunities, suggestive selling, and maintain Safe Service. This has taught me how to deal with people and hone my sales experience. I have also been entrusted to be a train new employees. While training, I have to teach new employees the Dave and Busters way of – more... doing things as well as teaching them what I have found to be some valuable techniques. – less
Awesome environment, excellent co-workers. Can be very unorganized.
Administrative (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MN – August 9, 2014
Pros: free game play, awesome co-workers.
Cons: no breaks and stressful.
A typical work day could be anywhere from fun and laid back to very stressful and crazy. i learned how to handle myself in a high paced environment and how to keep my calm. My co-workers are amazing and its like one huge family. Management is okay, could be more educated and organized.
Great place to work with great benefits, but was notorious for terrible managers.
Waiter (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – August 4, 2014
Pros: great benefits and co-workers.
Fun place to work with more than 200 employees that some how all got along and socialized outside of work like a big family despite their job description. Dave and Busters at the time also had an incredible benefits package that included a 401k, health insurance, and paid vacation. In the end I left because business dropped off immensely and managers – more... were so bad it seemed they came and went through a rotating door. – less
