    I have been working at Marcus Corporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have not started to work for them yet, but I know people who worked for them for many years and they say nothing but good things about them.

    Cons

    Like in any larger corporation; when you need to have a problem resolved by upper management, be proactive and don't delay, present the problem to be resolved as soon as it manifests itself.
    Sometimes upper management is involved in too many important projects and your problem may
    be delayed in order to give priority to other more important ones. If you can, give them a good week before remind them about the pending unresolved issues. Once resolved the problem, be gracious
    and thank all the parties that were involved in the resolution of your problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to be expeditious, efficient and considerate with the employees I suggest the following course of action:
    1.Label and date the problem to be resolved and give a realistic estimated time of resolution to the person(s) involved.
    2.If deadline can not be fulfilled because you had being extinguishing to many unexpected last moment fires, call the parties involved and apologize for not being able to comply with the original deadline and set up a new deadline manifesting your real concern about the problem and assuring a prompt and satisfying resolution for all the parties involved . This time around, be sure to deliver what you promised or you will loose credibility and respect from your employees.

    Pros

    Not too crazy about the hours you are supposed to work

    Cons

    Everything else. Managers dont care about your development. The don't really understand what the job requirements are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management needs to replace most of middle management with people that actually knows what they are doing

    I have been working at Marcus Corporation part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The management more or less does not micromanage and has some good benefits. They do have a free cafeteria in most hotels which is really a great thing.

    Cons

    They don't pinch pennies but they do pinch nickels. They are very cheap and pay below average for most employees. They need to care more about their employees and try to help them in their career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate is way to large for such a small company. Please remove unnecessary people and make it less top heavy and pay your average worker more.

    I worked at Marcus Corporation

    Pros

    I enjoyed the atmosphere of this job more than anything. Great people and great management. Walking into a work that is very supportive is always a good feeling.

    Cons

    Well it's a movie theater so your going to work some late nights and clean up other people's mess but for the most part, the cons are included in the job descripiton so it's not anything you don't know ahead of time. Working holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to control the level of high school drama between managers and staff. Other than that, keep creating magical movie memories.

    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

    Former Employee - Cashier in Addison, IL
    Former Employee - Cashier in Addison, IL

    I worked at Marcus Corporation

    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.

    Pros

    The job had many freedoms to it. Also, there was a cafeteria on site for free lunch or dinner during breaks.

    Cons

    The work schedule is not that great. Pretty much have to work every weekend and holiday, but what can you expect from the hospitality industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at the company is doing pretty well. They might want to increase the pay a bit and be selective of the people they hire.

    Pros

    Job security. As long as you don't steal, you're safe.

    Cons

    Watch less qualified people advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting "yes men." Just because they agree with you, doesn't mean they're/you're right/
