    Pros

    Somewhat good benefits (free and/ or $1 movies, complimentary popcorn, icee, and soda, and discounted meals).
    We maintain a very clean work environment 24/7

    Cons

    busy as hell on $5 Tuesdays, and Saturdays, not so bad on Fridays for the restaurant anyway.
    somewhat good asst. managers, minimum amount of storage space, consistently folding dine-in boxes, and not enough room to maneuver around the resturaunt with other coworkers

    I worked at Marcus Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cool benefits (free movies, popcorn, soda, etc), pretty easy job compared to other entry level places (McDonalds, etc), more of a family than just employees, very social. Long shifts (could be con depending on the person)

    Cons

    Doesn't pay that well, Don't really give raises. Long shifts (could be a pro for some). Some of the new policies are ridiculous.

  5. "not bad"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Marcus Corporation full-time

    Pros

    a very aggressive company that wants to serve its guests as best as possible.
    plenty of perks: free movies and popcorn and soda.

    Cons

    the hours can be a bit exhausting. working 60+ hours a week is not really ideal if you are only being paid for 40 of them.

    Advice to Management

    management is just fine. there are issues that persist with the company that can only be fixed from above the theatre level. I.e corporate needs to implement the changes

    Pros

    Great place to work. Focused on serving employees so that they are motivated to serve our guests.

    Cons

    Slow to make changes, even when they are mutually beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    Increase focus on rank & file employees. Improve willingness to embrace change and ability to do so more quickly.

    I worked at Marcus Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Do what you want as long as you get the work done. If you work for long enough you can pick your own schedule.

    Cons

    Some places have bad coworkers, and managers. No structure. Management has sloppy planning. Supervisors hide all the time, especially when you need them.

    I have been working at Marcus Corporation (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free movie passes are a perk if you're not too sick of your workplace yet. It is a fun place to work, with a lot of people to interact with. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    They love to increase the workload but refuse to give raises. (Not kidding, straight up refuses) Management is a mess with managers in and out of their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees a competitive wage. Reward good performance, anything but is discouraging it. You lose good knowledgeable employees when you don't keep them happy.

    "Horrific management caused by a company that seems to be desperate to cut costs no matter what the effect."

    I have been working at Marcus Corporation part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I liked being part of a union...it prevented this company from completely taking advantage of me as they do to almost all of their employees who are not corporate.

    Cons

    Management will use employees to fill positions as needed and then fire people when they are no longer needed in a certain position (not an exaggeration...I have seen is happen to multiple people). None of the corporate employees are in tune to the actual operations of any of their hotels. Whenever any corporate workers were around me, the attitude that they sent off was an extremely rude "better than you" attitude. Corporate employees are so concerned with making money and cutting costs that they fail to actually notice major problems within their hotels. Unfortunately the entire corporation is run by people with little common sense and minimal eduction. Human resources department is a joke on both the hotel and corporate level...they are unable to solve any problems whatsoever and care more about making it to lunch on time than listening to their employees' concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for the people that work below you....we aren't all as stupid as you think. Actually listen to some of your employees' complaints instead of trying to come up with an easy and quick solution. Stop trying to cut costs at every corner. Go back to school because 90% of the people I have dealt with on the management/corporate level come off as extremely uneducated and ignorant to the realities unfolding around them. Could be a great company if it was run properly and not with money as the first priority.
