    I have been working at Marquee Cinemas part-time

    Pros

    Free movies, discounted concession, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    No chance to move up or even get a raise. Start off at minimum wage and stay there. Unprofessional management.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring management that takes there job and role seriously and professionally would be the number 1 tip i would give. Number 2 would be to reward employees who have actually performed there job correctly and discipline the ones that don't.

    Pros

    Relatively simple job. Great people to work with. Good communications skills gained. Getting to work with movies was a life long dream and a challenge.

    Cons

    Long, sometimes inconvenient hours. Pay started low and no real opportunities for raises as an employee. Have to work holidays occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises based on amount of time worked at the theater.

    Pros

    - Work is easy - Coworkers are nice and fun to work with - Free movies

    Cons

    - Low pay, no raises unless promoted to management - No real benefits - Management, Management, Management. - They don't care about the employees - Very unorganized - Minimal communication with each other and regular employees - If you need an easy summer job or you're still in high school, then it isn't a bad job

    Advice to Management

    Step up and pay attention to the other employees. Communicate with the employees. If they are doing a bad job, let them know. Don't expect them to just figure it out by lowering their hours. Personally pull them aside and let them know. Communication was the worst while working there. Fix it. The job is fun, easy, and overall great. Management is the biggest problem, and sadly, that means a lot to the employees.
