    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.

    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.

    I worked at Marcus Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very fast paced environment and some great people that you work

    Cons

    The pay was the worst. Being a manager and making less than $2 more than the general team members was quite discouraging.

    I have been working at Marcus Corporation part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The management more or less does not micromanage and has some good benefits. They do have a free cafeteria in most hotels which is really a great thing.

    Cons

    They don't pinch pennies but they do pinch nickels. They are very cheap and pay below average for most employees. They need to care more about their employees and try to help them in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate is way to large for such a small company. Please remove unnecessary people and make it less top heavy and pay your average worker more.

  10. "Mindless work for just over minimum wage"

    Pros

    Free movies, popcorn, and drinks are a great perk for the high school aged kids who work there. Ushering (cleaning theatres, ripping tickets) requires pretty much zero cognitive ability. Working in the concession stand requires a little more since you're handling money. And working the box office you handle a lot of cash.

    Cons

    Start at minimum wage. Get a 25cent raise after one year. After that pretty sure the raises get smaller and smaller. If you're seasonal and making more than minimum wage, then minimum wage goes up to be higher than what you were making, your hourly wage only goes up to what the current minimum is once you come back, even if you've been there for years. You don't get much of a boost for supervising or managing, either. Wearing a tuxedo (as everyone who isn't a manager is required to) is also pretty lame. Hypocritical middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on competency and good leadership skills, not based on those who suck up and are good at nitpicking.

    Pros

    Great employees to work with, customers are ok. The benefits are very nice, free movies and popcorn and drinks. I would recommend it for a part time job.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, usually minimum wage but depending how long you have worked there possibly slightly above

    Advice to Management

    Communication is very poor. If communication between the managers and the regular staff was more clear and encouraging then they could get much more out of what they have.
