Pros: 50% off meals, free game card, fun environment.
Cons: No breaks, long hours, bad management
During a shift at work, my co-workers and I work with varying guests, a rapid paced environment, and obstacles the entire shift. Being very busy, we need to keep an eye out for running children, guests walking around who need questions answered or help with how the games/ chips work to play games, and new tables. Some shifts are easier then others, varying by the amount of people who come in each day.
I learned that I would prefer a job which does not have such a hectic environment, but one that still challenges me to do my best, work hard, and keep things organized.
The management at Dave and Busters wasn't very good in my opinion. I felt put down and made to be inferior to other servers who had been there longer, and even the managers. I realize working under managers I am below them in terms of job standing, but I did not like feeling as if I was at the bottom, and did not like being treated like such. It was very difficult to get the attention of the managers when I needed them, and have any type of serious discussion.
The hardest part of the job was scheduling unfortunately. Since the managers did not listen very well to the serves needs with scheduling, many co-workers and I had problems with meeting the schedules we had each week. The job itself, being on the floor and having several tables at a time kept me busy, and enjoying the business; it made the shift(s) go by quickly.
The most enjoyable part of the job was having fun while working. Many times we would play the games in the midway on slow days/nights, we all had close relationships to one another, and could talk about good and bad things whenever needed. We are a tight group of friends and co-workers.
