    I have been working at Reading Cinemas part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Making great friends, good team-work environment, cheap movies, very flexible work hours and a great hourly rate. Definitely a good job while studying full-time.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and staff, strong favoritism between upper management and staff members - resulting in uneven distribution of shifts, lack of any job progression. It can be very stressful during busy periods (school holidays/week ends) as usually quite understaffed. There is also lots of nepotism involved during the hiring process.
