    I have been working at Studio Movie Grill part-time

    Pros

    you get to leave with all your tips in cash that night
    easy way to gain server experience
    food is actually really good ( you don't have to lie to upsell to customers)

    Cons

    long hours
    technical malfunctions (out of your control) will lead to unhappy and non-tipping customers
    aggressive comments from management lead to unhappy work environment

    Advice to Management

    backhanded rude remarks are often unnecessary when you already have unhappy overworked and understaffed employees
    add more vegetarian/vegan friendly options to the menu and don't get snippy when people inquire about it.

    Great Managers, People my age, Free Movies

    Cons

    Needs major upgrades, No set time to leave, Dirty theaters

    Advice to Management

    Update the theaters, the food is good but not worth the price. Also give employees a set time to leave. Their shifts are from 1pm to whenever the managers decide to let you go.

    Pros

    Fun job for someone in high school students, free movies and half off food was pretty awesome.
