    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marcus Theatres.

    Interview

    I was able to walk in and turn in an application and resume.
    I didn't hear back from the company, so I called in. I was asked to come in for an interview the following weekend.
    When I got there at the appointed time, I was told the manager had left for the day, so I ended up being interviewed by an assistant manager. It was incredibly easy. Since she didn't have my application or resume in front of her, I was asked very simple questions such as "Are you good at math?" and "What is your availability?". I was told I was hired when the interview was over. Honestly, after working here for so long, I think those might be the only questions they really ask, and as long as you can do basic math and work weekends and holidays, you're in.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was none.
