Server/Waiter (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 5, 2013
Pros: meeting new people, creating a memorable dining experience.
Cons: tips based. long hours, no real breaks
A typical day would be waiting on guests. Ringing in their orders, bringing them their food and taking payment. Management were fair and co workers turn into great friends. Learned how to multi task, work as a teamwork, and work under pressure.

When I had my first buyout at Dave & Buster's
Banquet Chef (Former Employee), Plymouth Meeting, PAOctober 28, 2013
I didn't know what a buyout was until my co-workers explained it to me. I thought the buyout was going to be difficult but was very easy! I learned to move in a fast paced and understand the concept of different people also the different kinds of food. The hardest part of the job was to stay in head of the game and make sure everything was good with – more... the food. The most enjoyable part o the job was having the opportunity to experience something new with about 300 people and having my job trust. – less

Good restaurant with poor management
line cook (Current Employee), Syracuse, NYOctober 28, 2013
Pros: fun work environment
Cons: management
Enjoy the environment overall. Enjoy my co-workers. Started with a sufficient amount of hours but have steadily decreased as business has leveled out from the madness of new opening. Management, typical operations are completely lacking sufficiency amongst other aspects. A complete overhaul of management is needed!

productive and fun workplace.
Waitress (Current Employee), Orlando, FLOctober 25, 2013
Pros: my coworkers are the best
Cons: food running
A typical day includes a 5:00 where we learn how our store is doing with sales and our focus for that night. The managers are awesome fun to work with there always willing to help. My coworkers are friendly and outgoing. The hardest part of my job is food running. the best part is the money.

used to be a great place to work
Line Cook (Current Employee), hollywood flOctober 21, 2013
Pros: free gameplay
Cons: everything else
new procedures are geared to profit management leaving the employees high and dry turn over rate is staggering due to older experienced employees being pushed out a newer employees brought in untill this company focuses on retaining and properly training and compensating its employees this company will continue to decline

Fun place to work
General Service Staff (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXOctober 21, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule, benefits, fun atmosphere, free games for employees
Cons: discounted lunch only during work hours
Dave & Buster's is a fun place to work, and they are flexible with your schedule (especially with the students). I would not apply to this job if you're looking for full-time work, but as a part-time job, it does well.

Great work Environment
Buser (Former Employee), Earth City, MOOctober 17, 2013
Pros: free games, discounted food, good tips
Cons: event/company party season could get hectic
Clean and bus tables, Help wait-staff, run food, and empty trash.
I learned how to handle the public.
Management was down to earth and willing to work with you and your schedule.
Co-workers were a lot of fun.
Wasn't really a hard part to this job.
Most enjoyable was working in the Arcade room and playing games.

Coworkers will become family members
Server (Former Employee), Times Square, NYSeptember 27, 2013
Pros: good money
Cons: insurance sucks
It's a fun place to work. The coworker's are helpfull and full of life. The guest are sometimes rude but depends on your attitude. Sometimes you can't win, no matter how nice you are. The only down fall is even if your in the right and theirs conflict managers will always side with the guests. be prepared for high volumn, hyper kids, and kids parties – more... that take up two sections for a 25 dollar grat. – less

Fun atmosphere, terrible pay
Bartender (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VaSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: free food, great experience in fast paced bartending, management is great
Cons: no money
Friday and Saturday shifts at my location ran from 4-2:30 am. If you smoke, forget about it. The GM of this location doesn't allow for cigarette breaks.

My last friday working there we aired the Mayweather fight for free. Needless to say this brought in around 2000 people, the place was packed from 4:30 until 1:30am.

Despite the large amount of people, – more... the bartenders only left with $120 each after a 10.5 hour shift... I sent them my two week notice an hour later.

Serving is a better position at this location. – less

It was fun
Busser (Former Employee), Westlake, OHSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: company events, high rate of pay
Cons: can be hard to keep up on some of the busier days
D&B was very energetic and fun to work at. My job entailed roaming the entire restaurant picking up trash and dishes and bussing tables. Management was professional, but also distant. D&B had a very high volume sales margin, so a work day can be stressful. If you can handle a fast paced, demanding work environment, you will be satisfied with the rewards – more... for D&B. – less

Technician (Former Employee), Springdale, OHSeptember 16, 2013
Nothing but a bunch of bottom feeders. I've never seen or even heard of management this bad. Everyone is completely fake and throws everyone else under the bus constantly.

Have more respect for yourself, don't work here.
