Bartender (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – September 15, 2017
Most managers are incompetent & insensitive to those who have jobs, school, or anything going on outside of D&B. If you stress to them that you're only available part-time....be ready to get bamboozled into working full time. Only thing worst than the managers are the cheap hill billy guests.
Yes, you can make decent money. Maybe about 22k a year...okay enough to be a student or single person. Don't expect to have a family working here. Managers don't value you. There ought to be a service bartender, but D&B is too cheap to spring for that. The bartender culture is warped there. The company overall is okay. I say if you're applying, try to be upper management.....any one can do it, even if you aren't qualified. That way you'll get paid to be spineless, and a suck up when it comes to guest's complaints and be lazy when it comes to everything else. The service and bartending staff is a revolving door for a reason. RUN!
cameras don't work and you can sell game cards for extra money
Special Events Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 14, 2017
I absolutely loved my job at Dave and Buster's! However, the service that was given to our Guest was extremely POOR and as the Sales Person I could not get everyone abroad to work as a team. Even after numerous complaints from Guest to improve our service. I have letters written on my behalf from Major Corporations complaining about the Service and how they were treated after I persuaded them to come there.
Letters are available upon request.
Customer Service is my driven desire and I have to work in an environment that agrees with that 100%

Working at Dave and busters can be fun, but working there isn't for everyone. If you don't like noisy environments, packed walkways, lots of kids running around, or organized chaos, then its not for you. But if you can handle all that, its a great place to work.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Glendale, AZ – September 8, 2017
essentially very good at the beginning but turned into one of the worst teams i have worked for. The management team wasn't all it was made out to be and they were not willing to work with employees wanting to move up in the ranks.

Server (Former Employee) – TX – September 8, 2017
I really enjoyed the atmosphere at D&B. Everyone I worked with was amazing. They were honestly the reason I stayed. Management often has something to be desired, but I've been serving for a while so I know how to handle unreasonable managers. That being said, issues only happened when the floor got busy. Server managers were always very receptive to school schedules which is a must for me. The clientele you get here really varies, but it's a simple serving job with reasonable compensation most times. You will likely have to take large parties at some point, but there will probably be someone to help you out. Not really that many benefits. Employee meals are only half off, and D&B food is expensive. Would recommend as long as you have reasonable expectations.
Kitchen Manager (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – September 8, 2017
It was long, stressful days due to lack of help from other managers. Because of the restaurant concept, it stays busy from open to close. I learned how to manage in a high-stress work environment. I enjoyed the playing the games with my family on my down time.
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – September 7, 2017
I can't speak for the company as a whole, but this is just what I personally witnessed and experienced at this particular location. The possibility to make great money is here, but only if you're willing to put up with a lot. Management plays favorites with enforcing policies, s*xual harassment from said management is treated with a "comes with the territory" type attitude and multiple complaints to HR have "gone missing" in transit between management and corporate. Shifts, sections, and job advancement is all based on favoritism not merit. They will never have your back in guest issues, even when corroborated with witnesses. All of that being said, you can make great money here, but only at the sacrifice of your sanity and dignity.
Store Manger (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 6, 2017
It was an Amazing place to be and a great company to work for! The employees was great to be around! It wasn't at all hard to move up in the company. I enjoyed the area of the store location it was always busy!
