    I worked at Harkins Theatres part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management is pretty good. Very flexible and laid back. They normally give you the things you ask as long as it's reasonable and not against any rules or regulations. I enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    Hours can be long for what you're doing. I remember sweeping up theaters for hours on end with only one break. Hours can also be kind of awkward. Very little consistence. Some days you'll be opening and others you'll be closing. There weren't dedicated teams for those. But, I guess that's typical for a place like this with a relatively high turnover rate.
