Cashier (Former Employee), Monroe, LA – August 20, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day at work would include me sometimes running the entire front of the house by myself. It was pretty easy. My co-workers always took direction from me very well even before I was a team 2 trainer. The management was disorganized, but it still did not stop me from executing tasks given. The most enjoyable part of the job came from interacting – more... with guests and my coworkers. – less
Technical Manager (Current Employee), Dublin, Ohio – August 18, 2014
Pros: stable company
Cons: lack of room for growth
On a typical day, I will test and troubleshoot a wide varieties of systems found in a Chuck-E-Cheese's resturant. I will also field calls and support other locations with thier technical operations I have gained experience not only with technical systems but also managing people. I have little to no supervision on a day to day basis. I will see my supervisor – more... once a month or two. The hardest part of my job is motivating others to perform to my standards. The most enjoyable part of my job is coming up with solutions. If its finding a way to troubleshoot broken equipment or changing someone's behavior to get the desired result. – less
Birthday Coordinator (Current Employee), 5451 W. Saginaw Hwy – August 16, 2014
Chuck E. Cheese's was a great experience as a first job. A typical day at work for me consists of busing and making calls for the birthday party confirmations. The most enjoyable part of the job is doing birthday parties and making every child smile.
Cashier (Former Employee), Flushing, NY – August 15, 2014
Pros: experience provided
Cons: not enough hours
working at CEC for me was an excellent first job for me because of the experience that it provided me with. Time management was key to finding a rhythm at this fast paced working environment. but unfortunately I couldn't stay there because my hours weren't enough to cover my college tuition. So after a few failed attempts to fix this problem I decided – more... to find something better – less
Cast Team Member (Former Employee), Superior, CO – August 13, 2014
Pros: money, meeting new friends
I was the most super quite and in my own little shell when I first started working at Chuck E. Cheeses, but the environment I was surrounded in made me adjust to things, and the people I worked with was great and made me come out of my shell. Working with the guests where also a joy, making children's day just a little bit better each time, and always – more... trying to put a smile on the parents face. The typical day for me was kid check, and I made sure that everyone who came together, left together. I also helped out around the store, fixing games if it needed it, assisting at the register, and merch. It was a great first job and I loved it. – less
Party Hostess (Former Employee), Douglasville, GA – August 13, 2014
I did not work here long enough to have a review on this job. For the most part it was fun, if you enjoy kids that is. The managers here were pretty laid back. I worked as a party hostess so i was assigned my party and had to time manage my own day. On down time, if did not have a party during the hour, i was sent either to game room, kid check, register – more... or the ticket turn in. I liked this job for the most part. I had to quit due to the long hours it took to close. We closed at 10 and I would usually get home around 12ish or sometimes 1, even during school days. – less
Customer Service (Former Employee), Canton, MI – August 13, 2014
A typical day at Chuck E Cheese was coming into work and being around a lot of kids all day everyday. I learned that kids sometimes are blessing and sometimes can work your nerves. I really didn't talk to my co workers. it was more like walk in and do your job and go home. The hardest part of the job was dealing with kids all day. the enjoyable part – more... of the job was being in a arcade feeling like a kid all over. – less
Senior Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VA – August 13, 2014
I worked for the company for 2 years. Due to some things in my life changing, i was forced to quit under circumstances I did NOT have any control over. Turns out they were not as supportive as they claimed to be.
Assistant Manger (Current Employee), Jonesboro, GA – August 6, 2014
Pros: making children happy
Cons: long hours of standing and walking around
A typical day at CEC is filled with children playing games and winning prizes. You can see the relief of some parents realizing that they can just down and take a load off their feet while we interact with their children.
Opening manager (Former Employee), south attleboro,MA – August 4, 2014
Cons: low pay rates
A typical day consists of counting the safe and making sure that the deposits for the morning would be correct, also guiding employees to do the correct amount of prep for the day. I would say the most enjoyable part of this job is making sure everyone leaves happy.
Chuckies was a great place to work it was a fun environment.
Birthday Coordinator (Former Employee), West Saint Paul, MN – August 3, 2014
Pros: when you get to be a team 2 member you gett free lunch an starting off a 50% discount
Cons: it's a high stress environment sometimes.
A typical day at work was busy although that was a great part because you never felt bored or useless! I learned valuable business skills like hard work an how to interact with a wide variety of customers an also how a fast paced environments run so effectively and systematically as a team. My managers were very polite as well as professional in training – more... an interacting with the staff and customers. – less
Good place for minors to work but not a career anymore
Gameroom (Current Employee), Erie – July 30, 2014
Pros: free food, seeing kids eyes light up when they see chuck e.
Cons: no break for non-minors, lack of management styles, lack of energy in the building
CEC used to be a fun enjoyable place to work back in the day. Now it is no longer fun. The cast members do not want to be there nor does the management team. New changes including DM & region made everyones moral go down in the store. Lack of hours for everyone with cutting hours so when it is super busy nobody will come in. In order to advance with – more... CEC you must have to have no brain because it seems CEC wants managers running a store that has no experience with management let alone the company. The guest which come into the store want everything for free and will pitch a fit if it does not go there way. Guests yelling at you and threating to hurt and fight you, not a fun place. Everyone is out for themselves there. There is no longer "Team Playing" there it's all about "I" and myself. – less
Cashier (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – July 25, 2014
working at chucke cheese can be a challenge but with the right attitude it can be fun. The co-workers are great and friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing how happy the children are as the are walking in and how happy they get when i dress as chuckie.
