    I have been working at Landmark Theatres full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is great for an entry level position. There is flexibility in schedule. This is ideal for a younger person with a love of movies looking got minimal responsibility.

    Cons

    The company does not invest in employees. They strive to pay as little as possible and provide the most minimal benefits allowed by law. After several years of employment hourly pay rates are capped below market standard and there is no room for additional compensation.

    I worked at Landmark Theatres part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a very likable staff. The management is approachable for the most part. Movies are free for all staff members and you are allowed to bring in a few friends for free to see a show. There is a good system of shift coverage if needed.

    Cons

    Work can be highly stressful for the promised minimum wage. Employees are not allowed to sit during their shift at any position. Schedules are highly variable, meaning you will work on the weekend and at night. Staff are kept to part time status to save money, leading to a limited benefit package. While promotions do occur from within the team, practically no one is satisfied with their level of pay across power levels.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to sit whenever possible. Provide more break time, as 20 minutes of rest does not suffice for a stressful 6 hour shift. Perhaps attempt to unionize to provide higher pay to floor staff. While it is a "unskilled" job by conventional standards, most staff are exceptionally punctional and knowledgeable about cinema. I believe the current wage structure is quite inadequate almost all employees.

    Pros

    There are great people that work in landmark, the managers are pretty nice, depending on who it is. I really enjoy working at the theater but I could live without the company.

    Cons

    You don't get much of a pay raise and corporate comes in once in a while pick out every little thing you do wrong. It seems like they dont care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give us reasons to want to work for you. The theaters are fantastic but you need to listen to your staff.

    Pros

    Steady Business, consistent and predictable environment, fair compensation

    Cons

    Very Corporate mentality, double shifts are discouraged

    Advice to Management

    The happier your service employees are, the better they will do their jobs... and sometimes firing the bad eggs is necessary, even when uncomfortable.
