    Pros

    I worked at Harkins for 3 years of highschool as a Team Leader. It was a decent company and a good starting job. Great way to make friends and have a little extra money on the side for a highschool student.

    Cons

    They cons are of those working at any movie theatre. You will work a lot of late nights and weekends because thats when they have the most business.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to pick the first resume on the top of the stack when it is time to hire someone. I would recommend not doing that and taking time to hire valuable employees, will create less turnover.

    Pros

    Starting pay is above minimal wage, though only slightly. Management usually appears to be friendly and most of the fellow employees are rather friendly. Overall hours are fairly flexible.

    Cons

    While management is friendly, it's a disgrace. They will often attempt to force employees to stay longer than scheduled, despite that they may have class or an appointment after. Pay is far too little for the amount of work dealing with hundreds up hundreds of rude customers.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees have lives outside of work.

    Pros

    Learned a lot of sale tactics and a lot of hands on work. Key Job skills required anywhere else.

    Cons

    Black uniforms in the summer=not a good idea. Definitely a lot of favoritism toward promoting someone.

    Advice to Management

    Check the people who are going to be promoted to anything and how they are on social media you'd be surprised how good they talk about the company.

    Pros

    Very easy interview, no previous work experience required. Higher than minimum wage per hour. Flexible scheduling. Some perks like free movies.

    Cons

    Perks fairly limited. Work repetitive and often boring. You will most likely have to work on at least one major holiday.

    Advice to Management

    They should rotate people through the positions more. Doing one job for multiple shifts per week can get boring and it is nice to mix it up.

  11. If you can get passed all the teenagers it's not a bad place to work
