    Pros

    Great company to work for while you're in school. Will work around your schedule. Great hours if you're not a morning person. Free movies is arguably the best perk. My theatre was a great team environment. Helps you to learn good basic as well as management skills. Would recommend this job as a great starter job to anyone.

    Cons

    The biggest con would be pay. Management is not compensated much more than the floor staff for the amount of responsibility they are given. Other than that it's a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay needs to be adjusted to be up to par with comparable jobs in the field.

    Pros

    Free movies, saves a lot of money. Ability to do a lot of things while working, I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Low pay, not enough specificity in job description, no effort from upper management to help you grow. Very hard to move up. Have to have open availability and be ok when you don't get hours.

    Advice to Management

    Departmentalize and be specific about what you want managers to do. Invest in your employees, and you won't have problems getting them to like you.

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with are good people. You get free movies. Discounted foods. Lots of overtime.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime. Management does not care about you. The higher ranking they are, the more you're just a commodity. Pay is low, hours are brutal, you do an astronomical amount of work for very little. They just assume you know things, and give little to no consistent training. Its a go as you learn, and it usually ends up in disaster. You do something wrong, they act as if you set the place on fire.

    Advice to Management

    If there was higher pay, your employees would be far more motivated. Stop lying about flexible shifts. Get to know your employees better, and help the new guy out once in a while.
