The diversity of the job makes it a great place to excel in customer service skills, responsibility as well as being a team player at all times. Sometimes the job may require long hours but the smiles and gratitude makes it all worth it.
SPECIAL EVENTS AND MARKETING INTERN (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – June 11, 2013
Pros: great management and coworkers, fun events
Cons: sometimes diorganized due to so many employees
Dave and Buster's is an extremely very high volume restaurant. With over 200 overall employees, management really needed to stay on top of their staff in order for everything to run smoothly. Although it could be a little unorganized sometimes, they really did a good job of doing just that. I learned that in order to be successful, one must be patient – more... and logical. It really made me appreciate how difficult it must be to manager so many people, all with different needs and personalities.
The hardest part of the job was the physical labor. During "party season," which extends from Thanksgiving to New Years, I set up dozens of banquets. This includes setting up and breaking down rooms dispersed through out a 40,000 square foot building. These events were the best part of the job, however, because everyone is generally a good mood when they came in for a holiday party....its up to me to make them feel even better! – less
Typical weekdays, its okay sometimes slow. weekends pretty busy. learned about restaurant environment. management, pretty cool and laid back. co-workers friendly and nice. hardest part, doesn't really have one for a busser. you meet new people everyday.
hiya does anyone know if they employ cash casual staff ?

On a typical day at Dave and Buster's is sometimes hectic but at the same time its a great and fun job to have. I learned to have a whole lot of patience when dealing with people.

Server/Bartender (Current Employee), Homestead, PA – June 4, 2013
Pros: its a fun place to work
Cons: i can't continue the fun with a guest from the dinning area to the game room
First thing is to prepare myself for the day doing duties before my shift starts to make sure i'm ready for ALMOST everything lol... greeting guest as if it were their first time visiting D&B... at the end of my shift i clean up my section, do my closing duties and check to see when my next work day is... ive learned that not every guest is the same – more... but its my job to find out what they are looking for and make sure that i lead them in that direction. FUN (management), my co-workers are a big part of a great day most know that its a job and you take things as they come deal with the good, the bad and the great... The hardest part of my job is........i don't think anything is hard... truthfully... the most enjoyable part of my job is when a guest is finished and they are leaving with a smile and laughing with me... – less

Front Desk Clerk/Winner's Circle (Former Employee), Houston, TX – May 9, 2013
If you're all about just having a part-time, weekend job for some extra cash then by all means D&B is the place to be. There are opportunities to different things such as bartend, being a game technician, work in the prize area, serve/waitstaff, and etc. Be prepared to work long hours especially on the weekends. This can prove to be difficult if you – more... have an active social life outside of work and also have a family to take care of. There are opportunities for career advancement but only in the management positions for the most part. – less
Hostess/Special Events Assistant (Current Employee), Orland Park, IL – May 8, 2013
With the holidays over, the weekdays tend to be slow, but the weekends are still busy. As a front desk/hostess the weekends are the hardest days of the week. You need to constantly be on your toes, ready for anything. You are constantly multitasking. You need to be able to see the status of current dining room tables while helping customers all the – more... while planning ahead for future tables waiting to be sat. Communication between management is a little tough at times, but if you work hard your effort does not go unnoticed. – less

Waitress (Former Employee), Austin, TX – April 21, 2013
Loved, Loved, Loved this job, the best place I have worked EVER!! Managers were always willing to help out whether I needed them to get me clean dishes, take an order from a table, or help me fix an error I made. Everyone, employees, were ready and willing to help out at all time, sometimes even if they were busy.
Guest Services (Current Employee), Ontario, CA – April 17, 2013
Pros: half off employee meal, free usage of billiards and video games
Cons: short breaks, no holiday pay, we never close on holidays!
Usually 5:00 start time on weekends, greet guests enforce policies act as guest ambassador. Management sometimes lacks in communication with employees. Co workers are great team members. Hard part of job is sometimes dealing with intoxicated guests, closing duties and always working on weekends. Enjoyable part is talking to guests meeting new people – more... and working with great team members. – less
