Studio movie grill is a job that would only be good for someone who does not really have any financial responsibilities. I really would not recommend this job to anyone unless you are looking for a management position (they are the only ones who get paid fair).
free tickets and half price food
no breaks, low pay, no healthcare benefits, and managers do not really fix any problems you are having.
Working for studio has been one of the most rewarding things for me. This business revovles around food, family and fun, and its just that great food, tons of fun and family friendly. Management was always at its best and took their time out of their day to accomadate to what ever the staff needed. I believe the hardest part of the job is advancements in the company. There are many qualified hard working employees fighting for their chance to move up in this amazing company. Although I am competive and want to achieve more for myself than I thought I could I have found my family, family that will last me a lifetime!
If manager doesn't like you. You get shifts taken away.

They make millions of dollars a month and offer employees nothing. Greedy... They make runners stay way later. Sometimes the servers only make 20.00 a shift. Nobody tips there. They use to have gratuity on all checks and they made money. Then the company took it off.
Fee movie when your not working
Closed 4 days because of the hurricane. No paid time off.
Great Outside Facade but Horribly Broken Internally

Company is filled with compliance violations, discrimination, harassment and gender/race inequality. Company appears great from the outside looking in, but is so broken that it will be shut down by a government agency in no time.

Very hard to get promoted, management team is awful. I stick around because the work is easy and the pay is good. No breaks, hours aren't great, but it's the only sort of thing college students can do.

I would walk into work with the proper uniform. Then I would clock in. Check which theater I was stationed at. Then walked to the back with hot water to go polish washed silverware to distribute to the theater to which I was working at. When it was almost time for us to seat our theater the Manager that was in charge of our group would come in and prep us for the night/day. Then the real work began.
If you're good with stress, work a fast pace, and work well with team memebers then this a good place for you. The managers will help you but you also have to be doing your part.

I had a lot of fun working for Studio Movie Grill. It was a job where you were constantly busy which was very enjoyable. The spot for the location a worked at was great and would recommend giving it a try.

A typical day at work is either a 10 hour shift or a 16 hour shift depending on if your a double or not. Management is actually very good it's just the pay that i absolutely hate. We as servers only get paid 2.13/ hr plus tips but sometimes the tips be like $30 after a 10 hour shift. The hardest part about this job is sitting there for like 5 hours and its slow and the managing team won't cut anyone, but the most enjoyable part is having our summer cookouts and stuff.
Fast paced when busy, great work environment, okay managers

Advancement is due to favorites, not based on how long you've been there, or how hard of a worker you are, but which managers like you best. During busy seasons, its very chaotic, managers take their stress out on employees, kitchen gets easily backed up, and guests are not very understanding of one kitchen serving over a thousand people at the same time. When it's slow it's painfully slow. But the coworkers are the best thing about this company, definitely family-like environment when it comes to coworkers. Only benefits are free movies and about 25% off of food (including tip).
free movies and 50% of food
understaffed, okay management, never know how long your work day is

I can honestly say that I liked this job when I was in high school. When I first started there, the environment was really great and the managers actually seemed to care for their employees. When I started college, everything changed. It was a lot of drama, managers coming and going and pretty much chaos. I would recommend this job to people who are in high school or who are having a hard time finding a job.
