No work life balance, whatsoever. No employee appreciation, no adequate training provided, management is very much "do as I say, not as I do" type thing. In all fairness, there are some great people that work for this company, it's just a shame they all live/work in the Midwest where they actually treat their employees with dignity/respect. I worked in California where the upper level management doesn't care about the people, just the bottom line. My experience, except for the first 3 months, was horrific. I would almost rather work at McDonald's, truth be told. I legitimately feel sorry for anyone that works there now.
environment was fun management was horrible. work was easy money sucked management had their favorites. pretty much able to do what you want depending on if he liked you or not. not likely to get alot of hours.

Working at a bowling alley will always be fun, you get to know your regulars, you get free bowling, and you get some tips. The main complaints I had were the pay was low and you weren't able to work more than 30 hours unless your are a manager. The managers were all great people to work with and for, but the company left a bad taste in my mouth.
Server (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 9, 2017
This was a part time serving job and it was fun yet busy at times. I loved my co workers. For being a server, people did not tip the greatest but it was what it was, a bowling alley. Too bad they had to close down.
Front Desk Attendant - Cashier (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – June 17, 2016
I get to work with the customer and make sure that the the customer are doing great. I know how to my the customer happy to come to the bowling. I am help my co worker's out if they need my help. I do whatever I can to make the company run smoothly and make sure everyone is have fun. I love to work hard and do my very best at my job.
It was a very fun and entertaining job that had its ups and downs, but the management wasn't very stable. I was in charge of checking customers out onto lanes and doing any other odd jobs the manager wanted me to do such as, help the kitchen or clean. The hardest part of my job was when it was busy, I had to keep my eye on every lane to make sure they were working properly.

cashier/ cook (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – April 25, 2016
well i would start the day by prepping for the day time rushes. well the management at this job was great well at-least the one who hired me was but they got a promoted and the other was not ready to be the head manager in my opinion. the manager did not know how to manage any of the day to day stuff like how many employees to have on a shaff nor how to do time sheets, that was the hardest part of this job not know if we would be working on the day schedule
General Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 18, 2016
Really fun and satisfying day to day job. The company its self is really hard to work for due to the fact that no one seems to really know what is expected on a day to day basis. You can also expect to likely have your location sold or closed at a moments notice.
General Manager/District Training Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 17, 2016
Fun and challenging job with great people. Upper management has little use for the people that work for them. If you believe that you have an opinion or an idea that could help the company or your location keep it to your self.
Food and Beverage Attendant (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – February 1, 2016
I loved working here, but it's really hard to advance. If you're looking to move up, it's probably not the job for you. Having the same customers made the job really fun, league bowlers are a riot. Late nights can be really hard, but it tends to go quickly.

If you would like a "cross-country" type of job which needs athleticism, mathematics, customer science, and excellent property knowledge..then seek this employer first. You will get a bonus by getting treated like you are worth in customer service.
