Day in the life… Everybody is Somebody At D&B, we believe that each person and every position matters; everyone contributes to our success!
  • You provide critical administrative support to the SE office, including faxing, filing, making copies, mailings, and other general administrative work.
  • You receive and finalize contracts within the sales system and assist with collection of event deposits and payments.
  • You assist in maintaining event archives.
You Got It! At D&B, you can feel our positive energy!
  • The “You Got It” attitude is contagious – it starts with you, extends to your fellow team members and makes our Guests love spending time at D&B!
  • You take incoming Guest calls as a backup when the SEM and/or SEC are busy, taking down important information and referring the Guest’s needs to the SEM or SEC.
  • You generate PowerCards, drink tickets, and the other items we need to make our events one-of-a-kind.
FUN to our Core At D&B, we just can’t help entertaining Guests and showing them a great time.
  • Like to party? We like to party… You get to show Guests around Dave & Buster’s and introduce them to all of the ways we can make their event one to remember!

  • You assist in executing local marketing plans, under the direction of the GM, SEM, and SEC.
Founder’s Spirit At D&B, we believe that having the passion, pride and drive are what makes us different
  • You go above & beyond to ensure the needs of each Special Events Guest are met, processing paperwork in a timely manner, following up on questions, and working behind-the-scenes to make sure the SE team and Operations are set up for success.
  • And, because we expect you to “Act like you own it” your job includes everything listed above PLUS the ever-popular “other duties as assigned.” If you see a need, meet it; if you have an idea, share it; if you see a team member needing help, jump in and lend a hand!
