    Pros

    - Great social environment. The nature of the work encourages interaction with the other employees and makes it easy to make friends and form ties to the work place.
    - Hours work quite well with school and are very flexible.
    - Basic training and experience in various different areas - cashier, food handling, customer service, and deep cleaning.
    - Management for the most part treats their staff with respect and rewards those who do a good job with hours.
    - Good customer service practices.
    - Free movies
    - Free popcorn and drinks (but only while working)

    Cons

    - Cost-cutting measures are obvious. Raises are minimal - 15c at best - and the cap is low. Recently implemented employee discounts for concessions is a good start, but only while working. There is no reason why they shouldn't apply while off-the-clock.
    - No overtime pay or benefits.
    - No desire to advance to management positions. Must become a Senior Assistant Manager to receive any desirable benefits or significant pay raise.
    - Archaic rules forcing employees to refer to managers as "Mr." or "Mrs.", and forbidding them from any social interaction with the staff members outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you did away with the archaic rules regarding interaction between staff and management, gave discounts for concessions to employees - on or off the clock - and improved pay raises and the ridiculous salary cap (it is possible to reach the salary cap after just a few years, which discourages long-term employee loyalty), then I would have few arguments with the work environment.
