    I have been working at Goodrich Quality Theaters (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work with fun people, received a fee movie a week, saw a bunch of different people from the community.

    Cons

    not a job you're looking for if you want to make a ton of money.

    I worked at Goodrich Quality Theaters (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free movies, medical and retirement "packages" available. (better than nothing mentality).

    Cons

    They have a policy, or more correct to say a tradition, of hiring from within the company as much as possible. This has led to a general lowering of quality of management especially starting in middle management. It is too much of having a person to fill the position, than finding the right person for a position. I found middle management to be more self-serving than serving the business which will always make everyone below them much less efficient and productive. (in my opinion.)

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how your management makes decisions, and from time to time, advance a woman to management and respect her once she is there.

    I worked at Goodrich Quality Theaters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Incredible insurance, good salary & bonuses, free movies, fun environment. Solid job security as long as you work hard and lots of opportunity for upward advancement

    Cons

    Work most weekends, open all holidays, varied schedule that's hard to adjust sleep to, once your salary you will often work 50-60 hrs a week without a thank you, but if you happen to work 39hrs they dock your pay

    Advice to Management

    Need to show your employees a little more professional courtesy and respect. We are not slaves to do your budding, we are people just like you.

    I worked at Goodrich Quality Theaters part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the flexibility and being an usher. Some fun customers and perks in seeing movies, and who doesn't love all-you-can-eat free popcorn?

    Cons

    It was somewhat over-staffed at times, most people didn't get the hours they hoped for. Concessions was fairly overwhelming. Rules got more strict throughout my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Allow choice for employees to prefer usher or concession or tickets if possible.

    Pros

    Fun, outgoing staff
    Free movies every week if inventory was accurate
    Got to take popcorn home

    Cons

    Pay is minimum wage
    Managers are strict
    I believe they purposely say our inventory is off sometimes to save money on our free movies
    When new popular movie is released your concession lines are hours long

    Advice to Management

    You work at a movie theater.. Deflate your ego a bit

    Pros

    Nice working here really easy job, gets a bit busy when a new movie comes out but it's still a super easy job to work at

    Cons

    Not as many hours as I'd like but that's cause they only hire for part time and also cause it's minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Nothing they do a great job support nice and friendly always help out if needed

    Pros

    Kalamazoo 10 had a clean working environment. Management was pretty solid when I worked there, I enjoyed my experience at K10.

    Cons

    I worked 3rd shift so the hours were terrible. You had to work weekends and holidays which was also bad. The pay could be better as well.

    Cool co-workers and managers as well it is also a fairly easy job. Easy to stay busy. Shifts go by quick.
