    Pros

    Free movie tickets. I do love movies, and it's nice to not have to pay to see them. Food discounts while on duty is good too.

    Cons

    Hiring quality staff is not a priority, and it shows in online customer reviews. Sometimes it seems that corporate doesn't really care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer good pay and benefits to hourly employees. You'll attract people who want to work hard and do a good job. Be proactive in inclement weather and close theaters. Nobody should risk their life to see a movie. Take more time to properly implement new ideas (iPad menus are pointless if you can't use them to place an order). Recognize and reward the employees who work hard instead of driving them to quit. If the vast majority of your employees are looking for another job, you could probably be doing things better.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers, fun encouraging managers, promotion opportunities. Will learn lifetime experiences. Overall a fun atmosphere to be involved in. Everyday is different.

    Cons

    Customers will occasionally complain about prices but the majority are happy they are at the movies. Working holidays isn't always fun but managers offer to be as flexible as they can.

    Pros

    You get free movie passes!!

    Cons

    You work your butt off for such a low wage that you wonder why you even still work there. Then you remember the free passes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want your employees to be motivated, if you want to be a better company, you should make moves. You should offer full time options to hourly employees. You should offer benefits as well. We would all work much harder if we got something for our effort in return.

    Pros

    Some great managers. Some great coworkers. good pay and good hours.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional and hostile envionment. Managers are not reliable. Company cares more about profits than health of employees. They will hire people right off the streets and not provide decent training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire with experience and less hostile people. Control the professionality in the environment to ensure safety dor employees. Stop hiring and keeping lazy workers
