    Pros

    Can make pretty good money in some theaters.

    Cons

    Pay 3% tip share every shift to the bartenders and runners. Only take cash home, credit card tips are paid out every two weeks on paycheck.

    I worked at Movie Tavern Partners full-time

    Pros

    Fun coworkers, can make a couple hundred dollars on a busy night, you're always busy, great managers

    Cons

    Long hours, late shifts, commission can make for minimum wage work days during the week

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to have incentives for the front bar. For certain movies make the bartenders create and name their own drinks so they can make more.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great community, great managers, good starting job. Love the free movies and food discounts. Also free popcorn and soft drinks.

    Cons

    Late hours, money made is dependent on how good the movies are due to tips and tip share system. However, this is one of the best jobs that a high schooler can get.

    Advice to Management

    Movie scheduling needs some work. Our movie tavern currently has like 4 movies letting out and sitting at once.

    You can make good money most nights since you get a lot of tables.

    I worked at Movie Tavern Partners part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Little supervision, great people to work with, half off food during your shift, tickets to see movies, easy to job

    Cons

    Minimal pay, not treated very well by upper management if you are a runner, not allowed to take breaks during shift, may have to take trash out and clean theatres

    Advice to Management

    Treat lower level employees with more respect, allow 5 to 10 minute breaks during shifts, create a better overall environment

    I worked at Movie Tavern Partners (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with great people, got to see free movies

    Cons

    Management was poor and the money was not there

    Advice to Management

    If you're a good server they overload you and never let you get a day off because they need you. You will be closing the majority of the time no matter what your availability is. It sucked

    Pros

    Free movies for you plus one guest. You only get a discount on your shift and it's 50% which you'll still spend $7 at least and that's if there's time for you to order it.

    Cons

    No breaks, some employees rude, even if your supposed to get off at a certain time that never happens the next shift is always late. Me at days you will go from 8 am till 5:30 pm with out a break or even with out eating.

    Advice to Management

    Try and at least give out lunch breaks to your employees. It would help with costumer service alot since the employee got to take a breather
