Extreme Hours with minimal help
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) –  VirginiaMarch 11, 2019
Plan to work exteme amount of hours and do not expect corporate to assist with filling employment gaps or providing any support at all. Company has grown through purchasing centers and the support system has not grown with them. As a GM you spend two weeks in NYC "learning" from corporate employees who were promoted via being around when the first center was operating. Of my class to go through the two week training almost none are still with company.

Run Away
Slave (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJanuary 27, 2019
Very mismanaged! Hire a "manager" that is lazy and has no clue what he's doing. Hire lazy kids because no one can work minimum wage job with either a lay off or, extreme cuts in hours during the summer. Very frustrating.
Pros
Discount Bowling
Cons
Management, Minimum wage

real relaxed
Greet guest in person (Current Employee) –  Laurel, MDMay 7, 2018
This job is based on the part-time experience. Very laid back nothing much really to do. The weekends are the best day for business. But great for a slow-paced paycheck.

Ok
Snack Bar Attendant (Former Employee) –  Orange City, FLJanuary 17, 2018
Don’t respect employees or cared about their well being. Work employees to death. No consideration of anything going on in their lives. Just lots of drama

Interesting place
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, DEDecember 26, 2017
I worked for AMF during the time-period of their merger with BOWLMOR so it was a confusing time. I enjoyed the flexibility but didn't like the micro-managing of the corporation .

Don't work here
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Mechanicsville, VirginiaSeptember 20, 2015
Network and Systems are a mess. This was a horrible place to work as there is no structure there. They are content with just putting band aids on problems that need real fixing.
