    I have been working at Cinebarre full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growing company that has lots of room for upward mobility. Have been given opportunity to move across country and advance my career in the entertainment industry. Who doesn't like movies and bars. There is never a dull moment and I have been able to grow not only as an employee but as an individual.

    Cons

    The company asks you to take advantage of opportunities to make more money for yourself. Also affords you opportunities to travel at company expense.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow company so that more of us get a chance to advance our careers. There are not enough opportunities like this in the food and beverage industry.

    Learn from your many and repetitive mistakes. Stop promoting children. Drug test.

    Pros

    Money is awesome and so are employees we work with.

    Cons

    No vacations, no days off, no respect as a manager, corporate takes people out of their positions for no reason. I could go on.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should give employees the quality of life and stop treating employees like the scum of the Earth when we all work really hard for them.

    I have been working at Cinebarre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The coworkers you work with at your own location can be some of the hardest workers you'll ever know. They become your second family almost. The people that do their job do it exceptionally well. It can be extremely good money, if you are a server or a manager. When the staff works together and is not in fear of corporate stopping by, they can run like well oiled machines and it is amazing to know you have served so many people in such a short period of time.

    Cons

    Some managers put into their positions know what they are doing and are amazing, but they do their job well in spite of those running the company. The majority of managers are handpicked favorites by the owner of the company, Terrell himself. Some of them even make it into corporate positions. These tend to be young girls that he is attracted to, will take out of a busy weekend set just to take out to dinner even if they are scheduled to work, invite up to his hotel room, make inappropriate comments to, etc. They like the money so they gladly put up with it. Becoming such a favorite even allows forgiveness, or blindness, to such things as drinking on the job, doing drugs on the job, and even getting a DUI in Terrell's own personal vehicle and getting to maintain your managerial position. It is not a uncommon thing for Terrell to berate/yell/cuss at people in the lobby or throw things across the room if he is upset. Food in the lobby, and kitchen equipment are not to be excluded in this.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some sense of dignity and respect and empower your local managers and staff rather than dish out micromanagement left and right. There should be a sense of pride when corporate comes into town and a wish to show off how much has been accomplished, not a fear that the owner/CEO will fire/demote someone on a whim simply because they forgot to set out a coaster to one customer.

    I worked at Cinebarre full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours meant a great paycheck. Free movies. If you work hard, you can become general manager in less than a year and get the chance to travel.

    Cons

    Extremely long shifts. Repetitive work. Rude customers and rude management. Unrealistic expectations from management. Unhappy co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all of your employees equally. Never let your personal life or an attitude get in the way of your work.

    I worked at Cinebarre part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hardworking and fun coworkers, not many visits from corporate office, managers mostly stay up in the office.

    Cons

    Lack of organization. Managers are too afraid of what may happen to them if they step outside the corporate approved box. One mistake and you're done.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to help make your business better and give them second chances. You've burned or cut off the best employees who then go around and tell others not to apply which results in under staffed and poorly run stores.

    I worked at Cinebarre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro is that any other job you will ever have will be better than working for Cinebarre.

    Cons

    All the other negative reviews on here are true. The owner is a horribly sexist, racist excuse for a human being. If you don't flirt with him or follow him around agreeing with everything he says, you will eventually be fired or have your schedule so reduced, you can't afford to work there. They do not allow for time off for any reason. Weddings, funerals, family all come second to movie openings or busy weekends. They hire or promote managers with zero experience and pay them insanely high salaries so they will do whatever the owner wants. Then they burn them out or fire them for something trivial. The turnover rate for managers is ridiculous. And his family. Every time they are in town, they walk around making demands and picking out stupid little things to go run and tell the owner about. Guess that's why they are all on his payroll. You never see them do anything work related but they all have a title.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company. The director of operations is great and really seems to know what he is doing. The owner is costing the company so much money in hiring/training costs. I can't believe Regal (the co-owners) don't do something about him.

    Pros

    Awesome staff, young people from 17-30 years old. Some additional training may be available through the company (TIPS Certification).

    Cons

    Schedule is determined weekly and changes frequently. Management is inexperienced.

    I worked at Cinebarre full-time

    Pros

    Oppurtunity to move up quickly for those who work hard. Relatively small company and quickly expanding. High pay. Can go from entry level to management very quickly.

    Cons

    Corporate is very hands on and controlling at every location. Unethical and unfair business practices. (Sexism, favoritism, etc) Very unprofessional corporate/manager/employee relations Screw people over.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to be less hands on and micromanaging. They need to trust their managers at individual stores to do their job and stop being so controlling and involved in every single employees life.

    I have been working at Cinebarre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent food/bev pay, as many hours as you can handle, free movies, great co-workers (For the most part only seasoned food/bev employees can handle such a crazy business, so they're the ones that stick around longer than a week)

    Cons

    10-12 hour shifts most days. Constant micro-management from corporate office... Things like requiring pictures of people cleaning to prove it's happening, required logs for things that don't matter (Trash log, really?), and changing the schedule to how they see fit (You'll never get requested time off, I guarantee it). No holidays, and forget about benefits. You are rarely if ever shown appreciation for the ridiculously hard work you put in. If you are an attractive young lady and flirt with the CEO, you'll move up quick, just don't get pregnant.

    Advice to Management

    Think about showing some appreciation to keep the good employees around, instead of forcing them out by never giving them a break. Stop micromanaging every little thing and let the store managers do their jobs. And the CEO just needs to stay out of his own stores, he's a creep.
