Good for a first job, but not much else
Game Room Attendant (Current Employee) – Blaine, MN – February 20, 2017
As a game room attendant, you are more responsible for cleaning than you are for the games. When you're closing, you don't have time to do any sort of servicing that takes more than five minutes, if that's what you're looking for in this job. One of the worst parts is being forced to fit into your schedule the ten minutes used for "waking up" Chuck E, which makes it infinitely harder to get anything done.
The management is great at my store, but I have heard of other locations that aren't so lucky. They were readily willing to work around my schedule, increase/decrease hours, etc. The only issue I have with scheduling is the blatant stripping down of labor. We have the bare minimum of staff at any given time, and on the more busy days, you're expected to do the dishes, wake up Chuck E, sweep your floors, clean your tables, all at the same time. It's exhausting, and results in a much worse experience for the customers as well.
While it does teach you a lot about customer service, time management, and cleaning, this is not a good long-term job to have. If you don't get any offers to become a manager/asst. technical manager, then I wouldn't recommend more than a year or two, because it gets very exhausting and boring.
Good advancement, good management
Tight scheduling, exhausting at times, closing is very tedious
