Front of House/General Assistant (Former Employee) – Stafford – 6 February 2018
At tenpin, I was lucky enough to make many friends with colleagues, the managers were lovely, always helpful and understanding. I was fortunate enough to work for some incredible both young and older people whilst be a front of house member. The hardest part of the job was always trying to find time for breaks.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Wrexham, Wrexham – 20 September 2017
Within this job I have learned how to communicate, have fun, work smart, grow myself and showing I care about what I am doing. In a typical day at work depending on which department I will be, normally I always check if customers are ok, serve them, I always try to be nice with them by asking how their day went and always smiling. I think Tenpin is a really friendly job and it gives me the skills that I wanted to learn.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Doncaster, UK – 30 August 2017
Great People to work with, not a permanent job, lack of progression upward through the ranks. good friends and can be a fun place to work. However can be hard at times due to restrictions of abilities for normal staff members.
Good friends, flexible shifts.
Lack of progression, little trust, no full time hours.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Northampton, Northamptonshire – 1 August 2017
Was at Tenpin for a year was great fun just rubbish pay always pushed to do as much as you can it can be very fast paced on night shifts just wish we'd finish when we had close rather than clean straight after we close, would had been easier to do it in the morning
Customer Service Assistant - Unit Supervisor (Former Employee) – Cheshire Oaks, Cheshire – 12 July 2017
Even though as a supervisor it can be early starts or late finishes, it is a fun place to work and you always work in different areas of the bowling alley so don't get bored. I was able to progress when I wanted and got the help and training I needed.
Bar Staff/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Camberley – 11 June 2017
A great place to work with hours that suit every individual. Can have busy days and quiet ones but always something going on. The people are all amazing as colleagues and friends and the managers are fair and friendly too. Always good fun at work meeting new people and regulars each day.
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 7 June 2017
Great first job. Tenpin is a very fast paced environment, and the energy is always positive. Roles include booking people in at reception, cleaning the lanes/games area and taking food/drink orders. Despite the low pay, you get free bowling for you and your friends/family. If you're looking for a fun (albeit slightly stressful) job, this is it.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – London – 4 May 2017
a normal day at work was to check people in and attend to their needs when needed.The culture within this work place was always energetic and fun however the hardest part was when having to work at the bar with all the alcoholic drinks. The most fun parts of the day coming into work and enjoying the fast pace environment.
Technician (Former Employee) – Chelmsford, Essex – 8 April 2017
the best part about this job by far is the laughs you have with colleagues. other than that a fairly poor job. get not holiday allowed in December. Long hours as was short staffed all the time. too big a responsibility for the lack of pay
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Colchester, Essex – 1 March 2017
I stared off at tenpin as a party host and at first I loved it but then as time went on and people got more comfortable around me, things started to show. You get the bare minimum wage to do the job of about 3 people at once, you will be expected to serve on reception, clean the lanes and check on customers when there would be no one else around to cover your department. The management are more interested in gossip rather than what's going on site, they would rather site in the office on Facebook or Netflix, the management also favour staff and don't try to hide this. They will call their favourite memeber off staff in to have a chat. If you had done something that a manager didn't like you knew about it by the icy reception you received and then only receiving your contract hours the following week. They make you feel guilty when trying to hand your notice in and do not make an effort after. You do not get praised for good work only ever picked at for negatives. If you want to work inflexible hours for minimum wage, then this is the job for you; however I don't think anyone ever would.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Wrexham – 23 September 2016
This job gave me the confidence to further extend my skills such as helping customers and be social. Also I have learned a lot of useful skills that I did not know before such as Bar and iServe. I loved working with this amazing team and I enjoyed mostly everyday of it.
Mechanical Technician (Current Employee) – tenpin london – 16 August 2016
The staffs and work colleagues are good to work with. But not getting raise or any benefits and getting your hours cut from the company itself is a major demotivation . Due to this lots of good staff leave the job for better. And all the staffs that you have known from the start is gone.
Bartender (Current Employee) – Glasgow – 12 August 2016
The work is terrible, you will do the work of 3 people for minimum wage. The Co-oworkers are the only people in the whole place that actually make the job bearable, there is no benefits beside cheaper bowling and discounted food (only some food items).
Long hours, Minimum wage, No Benefits, No Respect, No room for progress

Unit Supervisor (Current Employee) – Glasgow – 26 April 2016
The best thing about Tenpin is there is always a progression plan in place for the majority of its staff therefore there always seems like there is somewhere to go. Although the hours for a management role at Tenpin can be long it is a good place to work and a very friendly work environment.
