    I worked at Studio Movie Grill (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, good product, not boring

    Cons

    Management was average with a lot of turnover, typical customer service job, not necessarily high paying. I know a lot of higher paying places for similar positions outside of management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose interest in a location after it opens. I helped open a store and noticed a significant drop off in corporate attention and therefore standard of operation after about three months of fully operating.

    management is messy and always changing. there are only two shift options - morning or night and you can't leave in the middle of a shift so I was stuck there until 2am every time I worked which was difficult with 8am classes the next morning

    Pros

    Free movies up to 3 guests included. Flexible schedule and easy to pick up shifts and release shifts to others

    Cons

    Horribly overstaffed in runner Dept. Each runner also paid different by the hourly pay which isn't fair

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on communication with all employees. Need to recognize the strong ones and the weak ones.

    The home office is decorated really cool. Free food and drinks. Lots of nice energy and good vibe.

    Communicate with your employees from the beginning...we are not mind readers. Get organized and improve your onboarding process. Have procedures in place and a welcome packet ready.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and a flexible schedule (if you have a reason, such as school)

    Cons

    Management does not care to keep up the building. They also do not care about their employees. I have been berated for mentioning not feeling well to management after coming back to work from the flu, which was documented via doctors note.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees. Runners only stay so that they can become servers, so it would be advisable to actually allow your senior runners to be promoted. Additionally, you need to stop favoring some employees over others without have due reason.

    Pros

    You can make great money in a short time

    Cons

    The corporate office is super unethical! I worked there for 3 years , did my job , worked hard, followed the rules. My boyfriend was promoted to a manager and didn't disclosure that he was in a relationship with an hourly employee, so they fired ME ?? Go figure hun, he breaks the rules of his job and I was fired ?? Then it gets better I come to find out that their are multiple managers and store managers in other locations who wreally in romantic and sexual relationships with hourly employees and it's commonly known.

    Advice to Management

    Work on ethics
