SMG Server (Current Employee) – Upper Darby, PA – October 9, 2018
On busy day you and about 3 team embers are catering to about 3 or maybe 4 theaters. Take orders getting food and drinks out be sure that all guess are getting and paying the bill. As a server you learn to deal with many different customers, how to go about different situations people have, you figure out how to sell to people you learn how to make the different food and drinks sound appealing. The most difficult part about the job is just staying stress free and making sure you don't let the little things slow you down. Having managers who don't act as managers and act unprofessional with servers and guests The thing I like most about the job is seeing the customers satisfied at the end of the movie.

This was the worst place I have ever worked. Typically 10 hour shifts without breaks or employee meals. It was very fast paced, which is okay but there were no breaks and you had to buy food. The place is very dirty. And the majority of employees are high school students. Lots of drama in the work place. Just not a healthy environment.

Studio movie grill was a fun place to work, I made it a great time for coworkers but also for guests. some people lacked in keeping up with average tasks. way to many people working or not long enough. Head management needs a change, the CEO has no idea what goes on. FUN
discounts, movies, people
no advancement for best servers, inconsistent hours
It is what you make it, and you can make it work for you
RUNNER/TACTICAL TRAINER (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – October 3, 2018
Personally, it's a good part-time or first time job, mostly for high school or college students. The work you get is dependent upon your availability, so if you have open availability and want to work, it's a good fit. The hours can be long, depending on how busy it gets, so expect to be working a full shift every day (6-8 hours), if not longer. The system is pretty balanced but it can get hectic at times. They do have a system of advancement, but it can take time and may be overlooked.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Arlington, TX – October 2, 2018
I liked working for the company. It is just sometimes there were things that i didn't like such as nothing was really happening to the people who weren't showing up for there shifts or when people were late they usually just send them home. But sometime on really fast paced days people not showing up would cause the ones who actually showed up to work longer and a lot harder.
Supervisor, Line Cook (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 29, 2018
SMG is a great place for those who need a flexible schedule. There're many positions and it's easy to transfer departments. The best days are the ones that's most busy. Too much down time means hours are cut.. i.e. find something to do.
horrible management as well as employee favoritism
Server/ Waitress (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – September 25, 2018
the only way you get hours or make any money here is if you are sleeping with managers or you are one of the very few favorites, other than that there is no care for employees or for the company welfare, its a joke of a business!
Runner (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 20, 2018
I spent a lot of time carrying large trays of food, drinks, and alcoholic beverages throughout the front of the house. It was a simple, but grueling job and the management was fair but stern. The hardest part of the job was running in peak hours when you were already tired, and the most enjoyable part was seeing free movies.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Upper Darby, PA – September 19, 2018
The bathrooms always make the halls stink. Management is not always fair, but if you get in their and do your job no questions asked, no wrong affiliation and the ability to communicate you should be fine.
Server/Waiter (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 15, 2018
Working at Studio is fun honestly, seeing customers walk out with no complaints makes days 100x's better.The only thing I'd change is management they don't move fast enough, don't give breaks, and complain about small mistake and don't pay attention to big ones.
Free movies, Premier nights, Half off food, and Great tips!
Great to have as a first job or to have flexible hours
Server, Bartender, Cocktail, and Director (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 12, 2018
Studio Movie Grill provided me with flexible working hours while I was going to school. They also were understanding with personal days, as long shifts got covered. A typical day at Studio Movie Grill behind the bar is opening in the mornings from Monday to Sunday; there is a list of opening duties one has to have done before the next bartender comes in which is at 4-6pm. The afternoon bartenders care more for the customers until the last movie to start ends the bartenders then have to clean the bar and have it prepared for the morning bartender. Studio helps with social skills also it helps be more organized, work well with others, gain leadership skills and be able to handle difficult situations with customers. The environment at Studio is very friendly.
Server (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – September 10, 2018
It was a very fast passed job that usually kept you pretty busy. I learned how to operate as a server here, great communication skills and how to efficiently be a server. Also how to handle and take care of up to 50 to 80 guests at a time.
I learned how to work under pressure with customers using my skills to serve and take form of money for tickets. Their was really no hard part about job, but making sure your customers stayed satisfied. The most enjoyable thing was making customers happy and keep coming back.
server (Former Employee) – Pearland, TX – August 28, 2018
Typically an employee is expected to work on a team to serve food to 1-6 theaters. You are expected to run food and take orders. The idea is great, but poor management made it difficult to work there. There were 6 managers at my particular location and they all disagreed on how the customers were to be served and they all had punishments for not serving the customers the way they wanted.
I love working here ,it’s makes me feel amazing . The staff there are amazing there very kind and treat others with so much respect
Runner (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 26, 2018
Jobs amazing I don’t regret a thing working here . I can say I’m actually surprised because however before I got the job people were saying it’s a horrible experience and your not going to like it , it’s been this job I’ve had so far .
Server (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – August 26, 2018
Great place with good encouragement to grow. Great teachers and management helped me grow myself. A typical day would include serving around 100 guests and walking a lot, always on your feet for the entire shift.
