Line Cook (Former Employee) – Daly City, CA – November 15, 2017
Fun to work Dave and buster. Shift got really intense during the holidays. Never took a break. Cause it was too busy and orders had to be made or else the team would fail. Fun and great people on the upside of things.
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) – Silver Spring, MD – November 13, 2017
Basic front desk work, answering phone running payment for customers. nice loud music and games, fun to be in the midst of games and fun. always a good day watching smiles and happy people leave and come in.
Waitress (Current Employee) – Pelham Manor, NY – November 12, 2017
fairly easy job, you make your money based on tips. however sometimes you do not get tipped no matter how much effort you put in. the people you work with can truly make a difference in how smoothly things run.
Front Desk Clerk (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – November 12, 2017
To be honest? It's a really fun place to work when all of the wheels are turning at the same time. The issue is, management is sloppy. Very, very sloppy. They forget about employees, complain when we need something that only they can provide, and consistently fail to communicate with each other. I actually find myself dreading my shift depending on which managers are on duty that evening. Our hours are based on demand, and certain managers will send you home SUPER early despite demand, while others will keep you past your shift simply because they forget you are there or don't feel like dealing with guests themselves. There are only a few managers I actually don't mind, while others are...unfit.
Each department works closely on a regular basis to assist one another in furthering the company. Not your typical office environment (we have video games in the lobby). Long hours, but worth the hard work.
Front Desk/ Host (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 6, 2017
A typical work day is 8-10 hours, learned great customer service skills, management is nice, they try to help, workplace is fun, family oriented, the hardest part of the job is standing, the most enjoyable part is seeing kids smile.
Game Technician (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – November 4, 2017
I would recommend applying to Dave and Buster in Milpetas because everyone was super friendly, we all knew each other and helped out whenever we could. The managers were understanding and patient as well as easy to talk to and get along with.
Fast enviorment, good pay, benifits
Gm can be moody(?), drunk customers are hard to handle sometimes
Server/Key Manager (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – November 3, 2017
D&B builds you up to think that they care about you and your development, but after struggling for a year and being told that you have to wait in order to move up and sometimes when you get promoted you'll have to take a lost in pay, i feel that the culture they promised has been lost and it is now just another restaurant. it's very stressful and the treatment of employees is unfair and there is a great lack of responsibility, accountability, and communication. It started off as a great place to work, but only got worse after time, and each month for the past 8 months I've been promised that it'll get better.
Possibility for growth over a long career, free gameplay
Stressful working conditions, poor management, niche restaurant
Server (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – November 2, 2017
A typical day at work is basically getting a section and waiting for your tables to be filled. Whether its 2 people or a party of 20, you are still expected to provide the same amount of well-rounded customer service.
Never would I encourage one to work for this establishment! Management is horrible. Nonetheless, you establish lifelong friendships. Working here you get paid decent however, you can't get the hour's you need pay bills.
BARTENDER (Current Employee) – Hollywood, FL – November 2, 2017
I find this to be 1 of my favorite places to to have worked at in the hospital industry. Teamwork is a huge part of the company and for myself. You're handpicked and able to be yourself with no judgment so everyone fits in.
Good money, benefits, great environment, fast paced
Customer Service - Winner's Circle (Former Employee) – Hollywood, FL – November 1, 2017
I spent 6 years working for this company and I enjoyed my entire time here. I worked in the Winner Circle. I enjoyed the morning shift stocking the plush and organizing before we open then to be there when people come in. I enjoyed the private parties and corporate events. Met a lot of great people. This company has a lot of room to advance and grow.
