    Pros

    You are able to watch movies for free and also before they are released to the public. The work itself is very simple. The job itself is very flexible, making it more attractive to those still in school.

    Cons

    The pay is not too great. Dealing with customers can sometimes be a hassle. Often times there is not enough staff on hand to clean theaters quickly while dealing with customers at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this is a business treat your employees as so, I felt uncomfortable lots of gossip about employees by management. The GM called me a push over because I let a child in to use the restroom, felt very insulted.

    -UNLIMITED FREE MOVIES!!! (except on Saturday nights basically)

    -Too many managers on staff at one time made their decision making sketchy
    -The smell of popcorn will make me want to vomit for the rest of my life

    Not so bad

    Pros

    If you love film (and great discounts), then you may have a great time working here. A while back, a lot of celebrities attended this theater. Co-workers were nice and professional.

    Cons

    Insane hours (but expected), work is slowly during morning hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not the most flexible with scheduling work times.

    Pros

    Pros - there are very few. Obviously, free movies is the biggest pro. Free popcorn is provided as long as you provide your own container. Free sodas are also available, as long as you provide your own container. State of the art theater....I was very proud to work there....too bad other managers could have cared less. Most of the Rave theaters were bought out by AMC, Carmike, or other movie chains. Hopefully these companies will take the necessary steps to make these theaters a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Where to start - assistant managers are not eligible for any health/medical benefits. No bonuses either. Those are saved for the General Managers and salaried managers...who do absolutely nothing but delegate to assistant managers and supervisors. Work/life balance is very difficult when you are required to work 6pm-6am some nights. You are required to screen movies and make notes of any errors and fix any errors, off the clock of course. Very difficult to work those hours and go to college. Managers/General Managers definitely have favorites and not everyone is treated equally. I won't even get into the lack of ethics/morals that go on in this theater.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Theaters are often first jobs for many people and they should be a fun place to work. You need to take a long hard look at the management staff (including upper management/corporate) and make necessary changes. Also, perhaps adding new policy and procedures would be helpful. Especially rules about employee dating. Allowing managers (25-30 years old and older) to date 16 year old employees is ridiculous.

    I worked at Rave Motion Pictures part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get free movies and you get to watch movies late at night before the public gets to see them, which means you don't have to sit with a crowd of noisy people.

    Cons

    The hours are long and the pay isn't that great. Some of the customers can be very rude and we aren't allowed to tell them that they are wrong. Sometimes we have to clean the huge theaters and don't have enough crew to get them done quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was decent, they actually care about their employees.
