A good first job, worse the longer you stay.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Cerritos, CA – December 28, 2018
I think Harkins is a great first job. They give you loads of responsibilities so you learn a lot, they work with your schedule, you get free movies passes after working there for so long, and you work with a lot of young people so you make good friends. But staying there longer than 2 years is really pushing it. They pay a dollar more than minimum wage and don't give raises after that even though they expect you to work your heart out every shift. Even calling out when you're sick, they'll give you a hard time about. Out of the 20 mangers there, only a handful are helpful. It can be pretty fast pace most times and can get hectic depending on who you work with. If a guest is disrespectful don't expect any real help from managers. Basically management sucks but the people you work with make it better. Don't stay longer than you need too.
Free movies, great coworkers, flexible availability
Low pay, high expectations, bad management
