    I worked at Movie Tavern Partners part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers, free movies, very flexible with scheduling. Great for a student.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum. Management always seem overly stressed at the simplest of problems. Customers can be extremely rude, as seems to be a norm in any type of food establishment. The theater definitely operates more like a restaurant than a movie theater. Movie schedules were often bizarre, with not enough turn around to clean the theater after a sold out show before the next one played. Even if you're box office, they'll have you cleaning theaters and running food. Since the place operates like a restaurant, don't expect to get any breaks or lunches. During summer blockbuster season, it's normal to pull a 10 hour shift with no breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're professionals. Act like it. People are looking to you for guidance. It looks bad when you're zipping around flailing your arms and proclaiming you have no idea what to do.

    Pros

    Pay is good and you will learn many new skills involved with running a 50,000 Sq Ft Entertainment Facility.

    Cons

    Leadership at Home Office is fragmented and not aligned. Direction of the company would be better executed by relying on a magic 8 ball than the "strategic" decisions made by corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing in some Devry Institute Basic Business Courses and start holding yourselves accountable.
