    Pros

    Flexible hours, easy, great management. I was never really bored. There was always something to do and you get recognized for your work and efforts. Great co-workers. Always had fun and free movies was a perk.

    Cons

    Not a full time job. You never get many hours because you are sharing with so many other employees. If the place wasn't busy, you got cut and went home.

    Pros

    The crew really gets along well together. It becomes almost like a team and it is fun to work with them. Most management is great. Free moves when available. Overall, I have really enjoyed working there. I have been working for the same location for about two and a half years, and it was a great first job. i have learned a lot about customer service and about people in general.

    Cons

    Most management feel like they are better than everyone and treat crew like they are children (I was only 2 years younger than most of them). There is some favoritism and sometimes they treat some crew like management and lets them slack off. Also when requests off were accepted and they still scheduled you, they made you deal with finding someone to cover you. If you didn't then you got in trouble, even though it's they're fault.
