    Great first job

    Film Crew (Current Employee) Kennesaw, GA

    ProsNot overly difficult. If you do what you are asked, which is not that difficult then you should be fine. Also free movies for you and your immediate family plus one guest is a nice benefit.

    ConsHours are bad now (because the change in part-time hours in GA). You have to work 2 out of the 3 weekend days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) Also you have to work Holidays.

    A great 1st time job!

    Film Crew Member (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsIt's a great first time job for a teen or college student looking to get extra money. Theres not a dull moment working here especially since we have the biggest theatre in the Tampa area. The management and supervisors cater to your needs when necessary. They actually know how to train people.

    ConsIf your not a minor you're breaks have to be under 20 minutes or you don't get paid for the whole hour. That's about it.
