Pros

The other employees are good at commiserating with one another over how incompetent the management is.

Cons

This place is a joke.
The pay is horrendously low and the raises are between 11-20 cents... and those only happen once every six months (if you're luck). It's almost insulting how small the increment is.
Corporate doesn't pay for any employees to receive emergency training (CPR, heart attacks, seizures) and would rather us stand there and let the person die, than lend a helping hand to someone suffering from a medical emergency. This is especially astonishing when you realized that thousands of people frequent the theater each week.
Starting pay is either dollars. That's less than the price of a small water and small popcorn at the concession stand.
With the amount of riff-raf that comes through that theater to see films, the employees deserve a helluva lot more in terms of wages. Corporate, get off your greedy butt and send some of your profits towards the people that are making you that money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Replace the general manager in the Chico location. She's 23 and still has the maturity and social prowess of a 13 year old.

    We have to find a way to get the staff to get paid a little bit more
