    I worked at Cobb Theatres part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free tickets to movies and free popcorn. It's also a fairly flexible schedule and you can trade shifts with anyone that knows your position. The work can be long but the tasks themselves are easy to do.

    Cons

    Low pay for hard work. How good management is depended on who you get. Often times you will have to close one night and open the very next.

    Advice to Management

    Better scheduling and shifts are needed and supervisors need higher pay since no one wants to be a supervisor.

    I have been working at Cobb Theatres part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    a great first or in-between job, you'll work with fun people (most are high school or college-aged), and most likely have great supervisors and friendly management. while you are required to work holidays and weekends, there's otherwise flexible hours and, if you have open availability, you're basically guaranteed to have 30+ hours a week. they also use a great app (when2work) to view your schedule, trade and pick up other shifts from coworkers, or directly message management. it's very convenient, i must say. in addition, you do get to bring you and one other person to see movies for free, and if you earn employee vouchers you can earn posters, free popcorn/drinks, and free movie tickets.

    Cons

    the amount of work you're required to complete versus the pay is absolutely not worth it if you're an individual who pays bills and lives independently! there's no work-life balance whatsoever, especially when you find yourself being scheduled for several closing nights in a row. not only that, but people will call out frequently and their workload will absolutely be tacked onto your own. this is incredibly burdensome, and most nights where i'm scheduled to leave at 12:00 or 12:30, i'm instead leaving at 1:00 or even 1:30 struggling to complete two loads of work with little to no help. management hardly cares about their employees, and they are inconsistent with rewarding for good behaviour, selecting employees of the month, and giving employee evaluations. my location hasn't seen an employee of the month since april, and i haven't had an evaluation since january (they're required to be done monthly.) cobb also has a terrible fraternization policy that, if you're found to be associating with a coworker who is at a title below/above yours (e.g. floor staff friends with a supervisor) outside of work, you can be immediately terminated. this is an absolutely asinine policy that i've never witnessed at any other employer, and can get longtime, reliable employees fired for simply having friends. they believe "favoritism" is a genuine concern, when this is absolutely not the case.

    Advice to Management

    take your employee's suggestions more seriously, stay on top of EofM and monthly evaluations, and raise your pay! minimum wage is hardly enough compensation for the level of work you expect your employees to complete.

    I worked at Cobb Theatres part-time

    Pros

    Nothing At All. Poor unprofessional managers. Horrible workplace.

    Cons

    This company is run by a corporate office, and the managers at local theater locations get away with a lot of unprofessional conduct.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with more respect. You guys employ many high school kids, and if you don't respect these kids, eventually their parents will get upset.
