Birthday Party Hostess (Former Employee), West Allis, WIAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Amazing service, Management good, good experience
Cons: Very hot at times, can get overwhelming
It was very busy on the weekends but less busy on the weekdays, i learned to have patience, and have a creative mind throughout the time i worked there. The mangers and co-workers were amazing. The hardest part of the job was getting into the mascot costume. The best part of that job was being able to enjoy being there, feeling welcomed and having fun while working hard.

started off fun
Manager (Former Employee), TXAugust 23, 2015
Pros: free food
Cons: bad training
Job Started off fun. was not trained very well. I Am on my 3rd Gm in 6 months. With the Change in Management brings Change in atmosphere. Not all was bad. I Like all of my cast members.
a typical day was clock in walk the store to see what needed work and what didn't. fill out the manager book and check to make sure you have enough staff for the day. I learned How to make pizza and how to run a restaurant. the hardest part was running a shift with very little staff. the most enjoyable part was making a little kids day.

Pros: half off lunches
Cons: short breaks
I enjoyed the people that I worked with but as a company it still needs some work. The only thing that I didn't like but didn't have a problem with was that. as soon as my team got a promotion or new item down packed they came with other another.

Kitchen Staff (Current Employee), Norwalk, CAAugust 21, 2015
Great for seasonal duties. Job requires fast learning and high pace movement. Extreme memorization is required due to overload in the amount of merchandize being sold.

Senior Assistant Manager/Acting General Manager (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 20, 2015
Made to work on days off. No bonus potential. Constant negative comments made by management. Told when I took the job there was excellent work life balance, but constantly forced to work extra shifts.

Fact Paced Environment With Many Quirks
Cast Member (Current Employee), Douglasville, GAAugust 16, 2015
Pros: Free Food
Cons: Not Enough Hours
A typical day at work would include me clocking in 10 minutes early and reliving someone to go on break. Then, after breaks are given, I would usually go to the back and see if any help is needed in the kitchen. If not, I'll check the schedule for next week to see when I'm working and once I conclude that go and do my job for the day. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude people that don't understand their boundaries. The most enjoyable part of the job is making kids smile and knowing that smile is from you. The management is great! But they've been cutting almost everyone's hours and hiring new employees daily.My coworkers are very nice to work with. Especially since we're practically the same age. I've learned from working here to always be kind-you never know what someone is battling.

Happy busy workplace lots to do not enough time
Assistant Technician (Former Employee), Murrieta, CAAugust 10, 2015
Pros: Fun, friendly
Cons: Management issues
At Chuck E. Cheese I was the Assistant Technician and I would keep the games clean and running properly. Not only the games but most machinery was kept up and running. I'd often have to order parts or try to use old parts to fix the problems as they would arise.

I learned the ins and outs of the arcade and electronics of the store. I could solder really well and learned to be resourceful and get things fixed in a timely manner.

The management issue I had was the lack of letting me get what I needed to get done and giving me other responsibilities that were not mine in the first place. An example of this is when I would have a list of games I had to clean out and touch up and I wouldn't be able to finish the quota for that day because I was asked to help with another part of the area such as birthday parties or making pizza when we didn't have the staff because of call outs.

The co-workers were good people and very friendly I never had issues with them and working together as a team to help with the people who would come in as a family to have fun was a fun experience for me too.

Hardest part of the job would be being unable to get all my technician work done because I was stuck helping in other areas then I would get in trouble with write ups and warnings when the bigger bosses came in and my jobs weren't being completed.

Most enjoyable was working hands on in the games. I absolutely loved it my favorite thing by far. Learning how the different types of games worked and repairing or just cleaning them was always a fun and enjoyable thing to me and its the one thing I miss the most.

Fun-games-Great Food...wish i was that young again
Technical Manager (Former Employee), Jackson, TNAugust 10, 2015
Chuck e Cheese is a great place to get started. Besides the pay the environment couldn't be better. As a Technical manger there i had the duty and honer of playing games as part of my job. Looking back, i believe it was the funnest job i ever had. I Think about the people often and sometimes long for the good old days of playing games with a free lunch on the table waiting.

short but sweet
Cashier (Former Employee), Manassas, VAAugust 9, 2015
Pros: enjoyablework space
Cons: leaving too soon
Coming to work and get told the daily goals and what needs to be done for the day. Employees learn register and customer service. Management was a big team but kept track of different things separately. Co-workers would be able to communicate and enjoy the work space. Hardest part was not being able to stay long enough to learn more about the company. Most enjoyable was being to interact with the younger customers.

Birthday Party Hostess/ Customer Service Part Time (Former Employee), Orlando, FlAugust 7, 2015
Through out the day I dealt with various individuals, ranging in age and culture, which helped me learn how to handle different situations that arose. The hardest part of the job was having to stand up for numerous hours. The enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the children. I worked different positions therefore each workday was different.

Typical day at work would be lines of people ordering food and trying to make sure their food is out under 25 mins . most enjoyable part of the job would be the workers they make work enjoyable other then that you need to have a lot of patient cause it would be tested with disrespectful customers.

Average Job
Employee (Former Employee), Hampton, VAAugust 2, 2015
9 hour shifts at different times of the day from opening to closing shifts. Shifts are spent managing staff of anywhere from 6 to 50 employees. You will learn time management, labor control, guest relations, etc. Management is both excellent as well as some needing a little more patience. The employees are a wonderful and well trained group of individuals needing the normal amount of guidance as many are teenagers and young adults. The most difficult part of the job would be the guests and most enjoyable part would be the co-workers.

Hostess (Former Employee), Plano, TXAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Friendly co-workers, employee discount
I felt that it was a pretty good experience and would recommend it to other first time job appliers especially if you enjoy working with children. The staff there are pretty friendly and are willing to assist if you are confused. The hardest part of the job for me would dealing with volatile customers. The most enjoyable part was the discount I got for the food it came in handy when I needed lunch.
