Pros

They really encourage a positive attitude in all employees and it seems like they actually want their employees to be happy.

Cons

They sometimes have an attitude of being superior to other places, which can make employees feel pressure to act that way too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure that all employees feel that they can talk to their managers openly, rather than feel intimidated by them.

    Mindless work for just over minimum wage

    Pros

    Free movies, popcorn, and drinks are a great perk for the high school aged kids who work there. Ushering (cleaning theatres, ripping tickets) requires pretty much zero cognitive ability. Working in the concession stand requires a little more since you're handling money. And working the box office you handle a lot of cash.

    Cons

    Start at minimum wage. Get a 25cent raise after one year. After that pretty sure the raises get smaller and smaller. If you're seasonal and making more than minimum wage, then minimum wage goes up to be higher than what you were making, your hourly wage only goes up to what the current minimum is once you come back, even if you've been there for years. You don't get much of a boost for supervising or managing, either. Wearing a tuxedo (as everyone who isn't a manager is required to) is also pretty lame. Hypocritical middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on competency and good leadership skills, not based on those who suck up and are good at nitpicking.

    Pros

    Great employees to work with, customers are ok. The benefits are very nice, free movies and popcorn and drinks. I would recommend it for a part time job.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, usually minimum wage but depending how long you have worked there possibly slightly above

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is very poor. If communication between the managers and the regular staff was more clear and encouraging then they could get much more out of what they have.
