    Pros

    Customers were mostly generous and fun to work with, as was my fellow bartending staff. The GM of the store at the time definitely did his very best to make sure any hours or payroll issues were taken care of.

    Cons

    The wait staff was petty, incompetent and incredibly greedy, they never did their jobs, the management constantly made erroneous decision after erroneous decision, and the company lied about the workload. I was told I would work about 30 hours a week closing one bars, but they had me work an average of 47-52 hours weekly for 2.13 an hour closing 2 bars, both service and front.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to take your bartender's advice on drinks, pricing, and ordering and restocking bar products. Stop letting the servers wrap you around their fingers and falling for their schemes. Learn to listen and not take sides in arguments because you prefer one employee over another. STOP writing people up for minor or perceived errors.

    Pros

    The servers are a tight knit group. We help each other out and make sure to keep the environment as stress free as possible.

    Cons

    Too much work for too little pay. If we so much as take a moment to drink water we're told by the GM to stop being lazy and get back to work.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking for a new GM, because the turnover rate should not be as high as it is.

    Pros

    Great experiences and industry knowledge available throughout employment. Fast-paced and people intensive. Financially profitable if popular movies are shown. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Long hours with uncertain schedule. Scheduling relies on popularity of movies available per location. Scheduling also relies on which movies production companies are willing to show at chosen theatres. Decision are made and revamped on a weekly basis which prevents finalizing of schedule until mid week.

    Advice to Management

    Increase training staff and stability through reliance on current training staff. Actually promote from within (as advertised) rather than hiring from outside the company. Turnover rates are ridiculously high. Put aces in places and rely on current employee knowledge.

    Pros

    Discounts on food and free movies.

    Cons

    basically you do too much work for the amount you are paid. Dealing with rude customers running back and forth all day standing for 8 hours, being forced to do 3 jobs at once for terrible pay.

    Advice to Management

    change it for the third time this year.

    Pros

    I started working at the new movie tavern in Roswell and it was honestly the greatest experience. They had an amazing training system and were always open for ways to make the company a better place to work. Free movies and movie premiers were provided for employee and flexible hours. Its a easy place to move up quickly if you prove yourself. Easy to talk to any manager about a situation.

    Cons

    Management is unprofessional with employees at times. Hours can be long

    Advice to Management

    Notice hard work when you see it.

    Pros

    Free movies and half priced food! Most servers work very well together and lend a helping hand when needed. It's fun meeting new people and an awesome feeling when they come back and ask for you by name!

    Cons

    Most of the runners are young high school kids who only care that they get a paycheck. They don't take their job seriously which lowers your tip rate. You can't rely on most of the to do anything without throwing a hissy fit.

    Advice to Management

    Management has gotten better over the years, but they need to focus on the real problem. Hire people who can take a job seriously and understand that they need to work as a team, runners and servers, not runners who feel untitled to our tips just because they show up.
