Fry Cook/Dishwasher in Gaithersburg, MD

I worked there full time at first then all of a sudden they started giving me fewer shifts and would never verbally explain anything. Communication is horrible

Senior Game Technician in Concord, CA
on December 7, 2022

The job is really fun and most people you deal with are happy. Management can be really hit or miss on the restaurant side but everyone I know on the amusements side puts all my past bosses to shame. Schedule is flexible and work is fun but upward mobility is really limited except for exceptionally motivated people.

What is the best part of working at the company? The benefits was the only good part What is the most stressful part about working at the company? Them cutting my hours whenever I needed more. What is the work environment and culture like at the company? It depends on the position you are. If you're maintenance you get treated like trash and expected to do everyones job who's lazy. What is a typical day like for you at the company? It was busy and honestly frustrating I enjoyed it at first but it became dull and depressing

Server/Waiter in Hollywood, FL
on December 6, 2022

Overall a decent place to work, management can be a little unorganized/overwhelming sometimes but for the most part we all get along & try to do our part.

Server in McDonough, GA
on December 3, 2022

Due to the location— you can arguably make the same amount of tips anywhere else, nothing $$$ special about it. The management make their salary by sitting down and eating. Most of the line cooks play games all day, even when we’re busy.
