PHOENIX – Tandem Scottsdale entertainment centers are offering $500 bonuses for some positions and other enticements as they aim to fill more than 60 jobs.

Octane Entertainment is in a hiring mode for the side-by-side Mavrix and Octane Raceway venues in the The Pavilions at Talking Stick, on Talking Stick Way west of the Loop 101 Pima Freeway, the company said Monday in a press release.

Details about available positions — including cooks, servers, bartenders, admissions workers and track marshals — and how to apply can be found here for Octane Raceway and here for Mavrix.

With Arizona’s COVID-19 restrictions and occupancy limits no longer in effect, and people becoming more comfortable going out, restaurants have been scrambling to increase staffing to address the growing customer demand.

New prep and line cooks can earn $500 bonuses after 90 days of employment at Octane Raceway or Mavrix.

Perks of the jobs include free bowling, arcade games and laser tag and 50% off food and go-kart racing.

The company is also offering $300 to existing employees for referrals to cooks who get hired.

Octane Raceway, which opened in 2003, gives visitors a chance to drive go-karts up to 45 mph over a 1/3-mile indoor/outdoor track.

Mavrix, which offers bowling, laser tag and arcade games along with food and drinks, opened its doors next door just a week before the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March 2020.

The venues are connected by a shared patio.
