    Pros

    The people, experience, free movies, opportunity's, over all environment, and family feeling to being apart of the staff, etc.

    Cons

    Long hours and lack of actual free time away from work related life.

    Advice to Management

    You guys do amazing and keep up the good work even when it can feel like an up hill battle!

  2. "Bartender"

    I worked at Cinebarre part-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment, loved the people I work with, the job itself was interesting.

    Cons

    Management is very unorganized. Scheduling is always a problem-either always understaffed or overstaffed. You aren't allowed to make any tips unless you have a register under your name, which is one bartender only, two if its busy. Favoritism plays a big role between the managers and the employees.

    Pros

    Good money and fun people to work with! Loved seeing free movies and they paid for me to move locations when the one I worked at closes even though it wasn't enough to fully pay for the move.

    Cons

    Most of this job was a con. Although the money was great, you usually work 14 hour days with no breaks unless you sit down to fill out checks. The entire establishment is ridiculously unorganized! The locations with the buttons to reach your server is great until it turns red after 6 minutes and you get in trouble with corporate. For how crappy the food is you think it would come out a lot faster and constantly getting yelled at by customers about how long it takes especially when they are paying 12 bucks for a terrible burger. Management is all over the place and never willing to help out but rather bark orders and hide in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage a team. Figure out that barking orders gets you no where and is part of why you have a high turnover in employees. It is also probably a bad idea to send your most experienced server home on Christmas for being 15 minutes late because of a blizzard when they called to let you know.

    Pros

    Tips are crazy good.
    The people you work with are great.
    Free movies, cheap food. (75% while working 50% off the clock)

    Cons

    Super long hours, closers work until 4am on busy nights.
    Management is not good at all.
    Everyone is required to help clean theaters after every set, except managers, bar tenders, and kitchen staff.
    The schedule is not consistent week to week.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stay professional. Regal, since they now own Cinebarre, needs to hire older managers with more experience.

    I have been working at Cinebarre part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting and fast paced work environment with opportunities to move into upper positions if you can rise to the challenge of hectic premieres and meet the demands of your customers. Everyone that works there will become your cinefamily if you let it happen. Traveling to other locations across the country is possible if you work hard.

    Cons

    Sometimes brutally long shifts with no breaks. Fear of being demoted for not wearing your name tag or setting down a coaster for a customer. Management doesn't always do everything they can to keep employees around.

    Advice to Management

    People are more willing to do better work when they feel appreciated and valued.

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment with a fun work atmosphere. Loyal team members, flexible work schedule, friendly atmosphere. Free movies and great food!

    Cons

    Regal bureaucracy effects the small business design of the company. Sometimes employees get disgruntled doing basic tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Need more (better) staff to effectively build volume and maintain current customer base.

    I worked at Cinebarre part-time

    Pros

    You make pretty decent money. For the work they do, food runners are paid better than most other food and beverage places around. As a server you can easily make $300-$400 on a good night. When I was there, employees got 75% off food while working, 50% while not, and free movies. Not a bad deal. Everyone I worked with was pretty cool, too.

    Cons

    In the summer months you'll easily work 40+ hours a week, doesn't matter what position you're hired in. Servers might even put in 14 hours a day. As a server you'll have many days where you stay until 2 or 3 in the morning. It's brutal.

    Advice to Management

    Theaters got very smelly despite servers cleaning each week. Instead of having servers deep clean a theater each week, hire an actual janitor.
