    It's not fun.

    I worked at Rave Motion Pictures part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free moves and popcorn. Woot!

    Cons

    Raises were far between and few. They purposely score you low on evaluations just to keep you from getting a whole 10¢ raise. Many have been stuck at the same pay for over a year.

    Management doesn't know how to do their job half the time. They promote employees who have no business being a manager. It's sad when an employee has to walk a manager through the steps on giving a refund or exchange.

    Employees are treated like a number. They doesn't value you for the work you do and belittle you instead. They favor the worst employees and hire on too many people so you can't get an hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to the employees. They are what keep the theater running.
    Learn how to do your jobs.

    Pros

    Fun environment, great co-workers. The managers care about the employees and free movies were a plus.

    Cons

    Whenever it rain, you know your day was going to be hectic. Customers could be pretty rude for no reason, but that's to be expected when working in a customer service industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately our district was sold to Carmike Cinemas, but I hope Rave keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Being able to see free movies by yourself, with family, or with friends that you bring to the theater, is the single best reason to work for Rave Cinema. Next would be the free popcorn and soft drinks. My fellow workers are also great people; friendly and overall dependable . The management is good enough.

    Cons

    Having to work weekends and holidays. The company seems to no longer give raises to employees or supervisors. I've worked at my local Rave theater for exactly a year now, and I've never seen a raise whatsoever. I started at $7.25 and remain at $7.25 Every other worker, outside of management, that I've talked to has expressed the same sad sentiment that they haven't seen a
    raise under the operation of Rave Cinemas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give raises to us hard-workers :-) Make us want to stay around.

    Working at Rave is the equivalent to working in fast food.

    Pros

    Free movies are great. The job is easy and doesn't require much responsibility. In addition, the hours were flexible so long as you could work on weekends.

    Cons

    The pay is awful. Cleaning up people's mess is disgusting.

    Pros

    Fun working atmosphere, and makes you popular with friends and family who get to see lots of free movies. Many advancement opportunities but they almost always require moving.

    Cons

    No benefits offered for management, comparably low salary for management, late hours, and you will often work weekends and holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay managers better and you will get better performance
