Soul-sucking if Reliable
Associate (Vending/Ushing/Box Office) (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI/Menomonee Falls, WI – March 11, 2018
There were three good things about working at Marcus Theaters: The people I worked with were mostly great, it was easy to request off if I planned ahead, and I was able to see movies for free/very cheap.
Apart from that, it was a pretty awful place to work. The company, for whatever reason, is exempt from having to pay overtime, and during summers it wasn't uncommon to work overtime hours without compensation (the most I worked in a single week was roughly 74, but I knew others who worked more). Additionally, if you were an adult employee, they would not let you have breaks if you worked any less than twelve hours. They usually hire at minimum wage (7.25 where I am) and I wasn't given a raise in the entire 2-and-a-half years that I worked there.
It's fast-paced and stressful. A lot is demanded and very little is rewarded for meeting those demands. I usually tell people to avoid working there if they can.
Free movies, typically great people, works with your availability
excessive overtime hours with no compensation, long fast-paced hours with no real breaks, little-to-no pay raises, low-paying
