    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alamo Drafthouse (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was 5 minutes early, pretty standard for interviews. I waited about 35 minutes in the lobby before the manager came out and spoke with me. I am more or less overqualified for this position, so being offered this below living-wage without a part of the tipshare/tips was pretty offputting. I did accept because of the job atmosphere, benefits, and shift meals. I just can't believe the amount of money this company takes in vs what they pay their employees.

    The manager did tell me that the hours thin out in the fall and winter and that their employees tend to suffer.
