    I worked at Rave Motion Pictures full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely amazing company to work for. Honestly couldn't list all the pros even if I tried. They really cared about their employees and it showed in everything they did.

    Cons

    The biggest con would just be thay they don't exist anymore. Rave really had the right idea about how to manager their people and treat everyone properly.

    Advice to Management

    If you were still in place I would just tell you to keep doing what you were doing. Everyone was so happy to work for you. No complaints

    Pros

    Wonderful experience being able to help families escape for a little while. Fast paced environment. Great industry to work in.

    Cons

    Due to low pay, unseasoned workers were being promoted because experienced and mature workers felt under appreciated. This made for a very unwelcoming and "catty" environment among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value you the hard work from those who genuinely care about their jobs. Do not play favorites.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, easy job. Easy to get time off. Given a lot of work hours. Overall, a great job and experience.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, had to work most holidays. The managers can be very lazy at times. Some employees don't take the job seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop watching tv in the break room while on the clock. Lower food prices for employees on days off.

    Pros

    free movies , great job for teens

    Cons

    lack of respect for employees, many rude customers, long hours when they are pressed, many canceled shifts,

    Advice to Management

    this is a business treat your employees as so, I felt uncomfortable lots of gossip about employees by management. The GM called me a push over because I let a child in to use the restroom, felt very insulted.

    Pros

    Pros - there are very few. Obviously, free movies is the biggest pro. Free popcorn is provided as long as you provide your own container. Free sodas are also available, as long as you provide your own container. State of the art theater....I was very proud to work there....too bad other managers could have cared less. Most of the Rave theaters were bought out by AMC, Carmike, or other movie chains. Hopefully these companies will take the necessary steps to make these theaters a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Where to start - assistant managers are not eligible for any health/medical benefits. No bonuses either. Those are saved for the General Managers and salaried managers...who do absolutely nothing but delegate to assistant managers and supervisors. Work/life balance is very difficult when you are required to work 6pm-6am some nights. You are required to screen movies and make notes of any errors and fix any errors, off the clock of course. Very difficult to work those hours and go to college. Managers/General Managers definitely have favorites and not everyone is treated equally. I won't even get into the lack of ethics/morals that go on in this theater.

    Advice to Management

    Theaters are often first jobs for many people and they should be a fun place to work. You need to take a long hard look at the management staff (including upper management/corporate) and make necessary changes. Also, perhaps adding new policy and procedures would be helpful. Especially rules about employee dating. Allowing managers (25-30 years old and older) to date 16 year old employees is ridiculous.
