The environment wasn't what I had expected!

MIT (Manager In Training) (Former Employee)
Springfield, MO

ProsYou get a discount of movies which is nice, but the work environment wasn't enough to make me want to stay and work there for an extended amount of time.

ConsThere is a lot to learn and I just didn't think that it was worth the pay that they had offered me!

Advice to Senior ManagementJust be honest and open to what the individual is applying for and let them know EVERYTHING that is going to be expected of them!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
