Awesome environment, excellent co-workers. Can be very unorganized.
Administrative (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MNAugust 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, TXAugust 4, 2014
Pros: great benefits and co-workers.
Cons: management
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

Fun place to work
Certified Trainer (Former Employee), Duluth, GAAugust 1, 2014
Pros: half off employee meals, flexible schedule
Cons: long hours at times
The management staff was always very helpful. The schedules are flexible. The pay if average for a server, but the tips tend to be higher b/c of the traffic flow into the store. Promotions from within the company are always considered before hiring outside.

Experience is what you make it
Front Desk & Host (Former Employee), Concord, NCJuly 23, 2014
Pros: 1/2 of food when you work a shift, game card with reloaded ships every week, brag bucks for going above & beyond
Cons: long shifts, dealing with rude drunk/high people, part time employment after obamacare went into effect
Its a company that is all about work. They preach a lot about family environment, but don't do anything to really show it unless your a "favorite." If your looking for a place that will work you into the ground and not reward you for it, and where you will have to pick up the extra slack of others because they can get away with it, then this is the – more... place for you! Also, managers will take their personal problems out on you when they become stressed out, and it will be on the floor in front of guests. Which will in turn give the guest the right to disrespect you, and if you act out, you get in trouble. It also doesn't matter if you go in everyday with a great attitude, because someone will ruin it. They will make it their personal mission to. My advice, is to find a group of people that you can rely on and stick with them. No matter how awful the rest of the building is, they will make your time there awesome, like my time was. Because they help you ignore all the other things that's going on, the unfair behavior, the stuff you can't control, and makes going to work every day worth it because they are there. And no matter how busy you are, no matter how many people are yelling at you, no matter how many people have disrespected you for no reason, because you have that core group of awesome people that you work with, your days and nights are great. The job may not be great, but the experience is what you make it, and I made it great. – less

Server (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 27, 2014
Pros: employee discounts
Cons: short breaks and a little unprofessional
Management is always helpful, but could be a bit more professional. Coworkers who work like a team strive better. Hardest part was dealing with upset guests, but the best part is making them happy and hearing your service was great!

Fun workplace
Waitress (Current Employee), Hanover, MDJune 18, 2014
Working here the schedule was very flexible making it convenient to balance work and everyday life. A typical day would be fun, engaging with all types of customers and delivering the best service to make it the greatest experience they ever had. On a daily basis you handle, food, soft drinks, alcohol, money, and credit/debit cards. You also clean up – more... on the daily basis, from sweeping to racking silverware. I've learned to work with a variety of customers and how to interact and provide the best customer service. I learned to work in groups well and individually. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the fast paced environment. The most enjoyable part was the fast paced environment. – less

Waiter (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYJune 11, 2014
Had to trained for five days prior to starting the job to ensure I’ve learned the menu, the suggestions, the timing of service, the various duties required of me along with many other waitstaff skills to learn. The job taught me to be conscious of customer’s attitude and to multi-task on especially busy nights.

Great Corporation to Work For, Unprofessional Management at Most Times
Server (Former Employee), Orland Park, ILJune 4, 2014
Pros: successful business/sales were always high
Cons: unprofessional management
Dave & Buster's is a very successful corporation and is in theory, a good company to work for. The management chosen for the Orland Park location however, was not prepared to open a brand new store. With some exceptions, management was unprofessional with both guests and employees the majority of the time.
