GREAT place to work
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 8, 2018
Busy shifts make time go by quick, you learn a lot from management on how to take care of guests and make sure they leave with a smile! Employee engagement is great, the corporate team makes sure that every employee, including management is happy to work there.
Pros
Great benefits, great leadership.
Cons
long shifts, lots of time on your feet

Event Coordinator Review
Event Coordinator (Former Employee) –  TexasJuly 12, 2018
This job taught me so much and really helped to jump start my career. The pay is not great, and the benefits aren't either. But it was a great introductory job to the sales and events world.

Fun and fast-paced place with bar, bowling, and restaurant atmosphere and even a gaming area.
Cook/Server (Former Employee) –  Webster, TXJuly 7, 2018
Fun and fast-paced place with bar, bowling, and restaurant atmosphere and even a gaming area consisting of air hockey & laser tag! I thought it was a great place to work, with friendly faces where I developed a strong relationship with co-workers and managers with incredible work ethic and determination.
Pros
Helping guests with personal problems is rewarding, half off discount of food and drinks, and free drinks on the job.
Cons
Short breaks, twenty minutes.

Working at Main Event
Team Service / Games Attendant (Current Employee) –  Lewisville, TXJuly 6, 2018
A typical work day is pretty simple but the management was lazy and very unhelpful at times. the job was ran like a business but ran off of emotions and how somebody is feeling. There is a lot of favorites at that job so that will make it harder for others to come up on hours. the hardest part is not working with customers it working with the people you work mostly the management. And the most enjoyable part of the job is going on break and going home.
Pros
Half off food
Cons
short breaks

Productive and Fun place where the workers had fun and communicated
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Katy, TXJuly 3, 2018
it was a good place to work at for the time being.
but you didn’t get payed as much .. $7.25 .. better than nothing although it feels like sometimes you do more of all the work, because the experienced workers there liked to take advantage of the new people.

Management seems to only care about senior employees, the overall work experience is fun and the busiest days are on the weekends. Overtime is offered.

Server/Bartender (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXJune 29, 2018
It was a good learning experience, if you work in the mornings your job is mainly to clean and wait for a new guest to come in which was stressful when being paid a server wage.
Pros
Discount on bowling
Cons
Short to no breaks, low pay, tips split three ways.

Server (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 17, 2018
Great company to work for
People will be people

I loved everything and aspect about this company and I just didn't like that way co workers would handle each other without management doing anything about it. If a manager was upset or having a bad day they would let the energy shift thru the building
Pros
Everything
Cons
Being talked too in a way or ignored

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJune 13, 2018
Don't do it. It's an amalgamation of everything hated in office culture. Benefits were non-existent, salary low, advancement low, expectations high. Only good thing was the free food and beer/wine.
Pros
food, beer, wine, play cards
Cons
everything that matters

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  MemphisJune 12, 2018
Main Event Entertainment is a great place to add to an existing set of skills. ME offered flexible work hours and they were very hands on from a corporate level. They offered a great salary based on my experience, and was a really fun place to work.

The GM was very personable and went above and beyond to build meaningful relationships with the team members.

ME offered lots of opportunities to grow in your career if you are able to relocate as they are a rapidly growing company. You can move up fairly quickly with the right attitude and work ethic.

The only bad experience I had was with a senior level officer at the corporate level. This person used intimidation to persuade employees to do their job, and was not a very good listener, just a talker.

Games Lead (Former Employee) –  Plano,txJune 7, 2018
It was a good first job but if you worked in the back of the building you don’t really get much recognition because management didn’t care enough to go back to the games area to see how good you actually do on the job.
Pros
Half off meals and free drinks
Cons
Short breaks
