customer sevices/assistant (Former Employee), rochdaleOctober 20, 2014
Pros: good break hours
Cons: hours where long
typical day when it was not bissy.
Learnt at work was how to communicate with customers , how to serve the customers and welcome at the hall showing them around.
Hard part of work was when the hall got bissy and checking memebership cards.
Most thing i enjoyed about the work was checking claim and calling out the winners card. Going to the counter, – more... collecting and giving out the payment to the customers – less

Great experience and fun place to work
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee), HartlepoolSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: great working atmosphere
Cons: hours leave unsociable life for those with families.
I really enjoyed working with Mecca Bingo, the team were all friendly and each one had a special bond with customers. The staff and management included were more of a family each with the goal of providing outstanding customer service. But eventually it clashed with my home life causing me to leave due to an unbalanced life.

Pros: great customers

I spent 6 years with the company it was a great company too work for in confidence building and for all round learning as you go in there you may start in giving out change for mini bingo but as you move on you get too work in mostly all departments I started out giving change and before I knew it I was calling main stage bingo and was trained to work – more... anywhere in the club so not all days where the same customers where the best part of working there they where always just wanting a wee chat and a bit of a laugh
the hardest part of the job was the split shift although working there you do get used to it – less

With Mecca Bingo everyday is different. My job roles are; giving out change to customers to play the games in-between bingo, calling numbers, cash handling, selling books, good customer service is needed when dealing with problems, Cashiering and calling Mainstage. I also work with the food in the company serving food and also in the bar area. I do – more... reception making phone calls to make sure new customers enjoyed their time. Every customer gets the best response possible to questions and if a problem arises we can deal with it safely and efficiently and give them an easy and fun time ensuring the best experience so they would like to return. – less

Typical Day
Team Member/Admin Cashier (Current Employee), Edinburgh, SCTSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: 50% off meals, chance to progress within the company
Cons: long days, little training
a typical day at Mecca Bingo is long with having spilt shifts can be slow on quieter sessions of bingo, Managers most of the time are fun and good to be around. Staff here are very friendly and nice to be around, when the sessions are busy the day goes quicker.

Team Member (Former Employee), Chesterfield, ENGJune 16, 2014
Cons: long hours, evening and weekend. flat rate pay.
Long hours and you have to work evenings and weekends. Rolling rota with the possibility of different shifts on different departments each week. Co-workers are great, but always under a lot of stress as most of the time their understaffed, but they do the best they can. For what you have to do the pay is a bad joke! Minimum wage. Staff morale has been – more... very low for a long time with no sign of it changing! – less
