    Pros

    You will learn how to interact with customers in a very professional manner and understand proper work flow (which is priceless in the service industry).

    Cons

    So concerned about spending and holding onto that extra dollar customers and employees become expendable. Sometimes it feels as if the company believes it's a privilege to work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to not be so reactionary to issues. HR is literally a nonexistent department. Waterhole talk almost entirely consists of how corporate doesn't care so long as the money keeps rolling in and "what they don't know wont hurt them". Disgruntled employees would be less prevalent if maybe it appeared like corporate cared about it's lower employees.

    Pros

    It's a very self explanatory job. It's a great introduction to working. It's a fun environment and the free movies are a plus. You'll get to know/interact with some really cool customers. Hard work is really appreciated.

    Cons

    Very often under staffed and half the employees working won't do thier jobs anyways. Poor management. Be prepared to lose faith in humanity. Though hard work is appreciated, it's hardly rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Address the way Andrew treats employees. Actually use six month reviews and work with employees who cannot or will not do thier respective jobs.

    Pros

    $1 hot dogs, free movies(Mon-Thurs), good hours if that manager favorites you.

    Cons

    You don't get any hours if they don't favorite you. They ask you to do 5 thousand things at once and to have it done in 5-10 minutes. One of the lazy supervisors will pass my a big pile of popcorn and instead of sweeping it herself she'll ask someone that's already doing something to sweep it up. I honestly don't know how she became a supervisor. The manager that provides favoritism to some of the employees is fake and pretends that she cares but in the end she talks bad about you to other employees This whole theatre is a mess....

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck!

    -New learning opportunities
    -Experience in a fast paced environment

    Cons

    -Sexual harassment claims ignored
    -Often not helpful District Managers with little care for their jobs
    -Culture focused on making money at expense of others
    -No benefits for Assistant Managers, limited them to part time status to avoid providing healthcare
    -Incentives for frontline employees are almost non-existant, free movies limited to Mon-Thurs unlike employees in other theatre chains
    -District Manager Dwight Morgan exercised authoritarian rule over his General Managers, allowing them little control over their assigned locations

    Revamp the entire culture of the company.

    Pros

    I learned how to plan events and market films to a niche audience effectively. I meet a lot of great people and made good contacts with the local community that can possibly help me land a job after college graduation.

    Cons

    the drive to work is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    compensate interns with a stipend or gas money.
