    Pros

    Getting to watch free movies, passes, pretty easy job, okay environment.

    Cons

    Only getting to go see a free movie 15 minutes before it starts, and that's IF you are available to work but not scheduled.

    If you're enforcing the company policy and a customer gets upset, don't expect management to back you up. "The customer is always right."

    Advice to Management

    Back up the employees when they're enforcing policy.

    Pros

    Great job for anybody in school, fair management, flexible schedule, and opportunity to cross train into other departments!

    Cons

    Concession is by far the hardest department at this company. Slippery from all the butter, hardly any help from management on restocking during rushes, and extremely late nights on weekends!

    Advice to Management

    Don't show that you have favorites, giving special treatment is not part of the job!

    Overall 'Ok' work environment. Very good for a teen looking for his/her first job.

    Cons

    After awhile it does get boring. Unprofessional work place, managers share information to employees that they shouldn't be telling other.
    Unprofessional management, minimum wage

    Pros

    -Incredibly easy to get hired
    -Great people to work with for the most part
    -Free drinks and popcorn while working
    -50% discount on everything else while working
    -For the most part, management is mature and understanding (more on this later)
    -Very flexible hours
    -CEO is very competent and has real experience within the theater business
    -Good practice for Customer Service

    Cons

    -At my location, our General Manager is rather incompetent, immature, and is all too happy to flex his power within the workplace. It's kind of funny that when we had a Regional Manager at our location for 6 months, he got his act together. However now that the regional is now gone, he's back to being his former self. He is inexperienced and the workplace would do much better with someone else in charge.
    -Organization is horrid. Nothing stays in the same place.
    -Bottom of the barrel pay (7.25/hr starting wage, non-negotiable)
    -You'll be lucky if you make it to 8.00/hr. Raises are up to 25 cents twice a year, and you'll be even more lucky to get a full 25 cent raise. Expect a 15 cent raise for your first raise.
    -Some employees that get promoted to management become abusers of their power. Not uncommon, but worth mentioning.
    -EXTREMELY high job turn over rate. New employees are not odd to see every month.
    -Be prepared to deal with rude customers and lazy employees, just like anywhere else.
    -Little to no room for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Watch who you promote to General Manager. One guy can ruin an entire workplace. The quality of this job would be so much better if it weren't for a power hungry man in the top position. I'm sure it is not like this at all locations, but keep an eye out for this.
