      I have been working at Carmike Cinemas part-time

      Pros

      Free movies basically anytime, flexible work schedule

      Very entry level and payment. Worth it if you're in high school or college. The work load depends on the movies coming out.

          I worked at Carmike Cinemas part-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Free movie every time you work two days during the weekend. Discount on food while you're working (except no icees). Co-workers are usually nice

          Cons

          Female managers were rude and made the work environment unpleasant. Overall I did not enjoy working there. I would still recommend it as a first time job just for experience.
