How is your management? I worked for a dine in AMC and it was the messiest run place I've ever worked.

My management is actually great with the exception of 2 people. One of my supervisors is old, like in her late 50s and doesn't give a ***. And one of my managers is 20 and he's the perfect example of why a 20 year old shouldn't have that much authority. Other than those 2, the other managers and supers are really good and really on top of things, and genuinely care about their team. And considering our GM is only 25, she knows exactly what shes doing.

Do you guys get to keep the big movie posters?

We do get to keep any promotional items we receive, at management's discretion. Posters are something that they just put out for us to take after the promo period for it is up.

Is there a 401k? Do you contribute?

401k is available, however not to Film Crew or Supervisors. I believe it's available to senior and general managers, as well as people who work at or for Home Office (Marketing, district managers, etc.)
