It really depends on the corporation mike. Century/Cinemark is a horrible company to work for. Carmax (my past company) was a horrible corporation. But Discover Financial Services (my current company) knows how to take care of their employees. I have awesome benefits that started on my first day. Pay is great for starting pay with no experience. And I get evaluations every month to see if I am on track to get my raises at the 6 month marks.

Well that I figured... I know there are the select few that are great (Honda being one of them) that do take care of their emps well.... Just a lot more that don't and simply I just don't even want to deal with all the corporate shit in the first place..... I all honesty, I MAY be making the mistake of going to college (trust me I know it's 100% worth it... Just see my point though) as I'm more than likely gonna end up back at my current shop and slowly taking ownership... Won't need another interview or a degree there.

Edit: oh I forgot to mention.... Since you brought up evals and raises, I don't remember if we are supposed to have 6 month evals or yearly evals, but I CAN tell you my last one was almost a year and a half ago, which was superceeded by the new min wage anyway. So YES I'm making minimum wage still while new people are making more.

And every time I ask them about mine or tell them what's up, they either smile and say "that sucks" and walk off, or will say things like "when is yours due?" or "I'll check and see if your name is on the list" or when I complain about it "stop asking or i'll give you a 0, I'll get to it." and when I DID have mine (which was only the 6 month, no 3 month) I got an 8 out of 10 on it, and I'm willing to bet I'll probably get worse on it now since I've pretty much lost all motivation to be there.

Especially when they want me to upsell every single transaction, so whenever I had a huge line I'd stop doing it because everyone in line would hear it 20 times and cut me off anyway, but then they have to come around and "remind" me to upsell every transaction.... Good thing I got out of concessions. I love and can handle floor, just kinda hate most of the people on it. Miss the concessions people.

This is SO not worth 7.25 an hour (more like $5.50 after taxes) To work 12 hours a weekend, then have most of it taken away anyway. I'll gladly take my $7 an hour after taxes 12 hours a day five days a week job over the same job 4 hours a day five times a week plus 12 hours a weekend at the theater.

When I was a supervisor there I was working 16-20 hour weekends and 50-60 hour weeks during the summer for $7.50/hr. It's a shitty company. They don't care about who works there. Only that they make money. I'm tellin' ya, get out while you can. Find something.

I'm happy with my other job though.... Not much else on the weekend. I keep saying how I'm gonna quit every weekend, but my dad keeps saying "just till the end of summer"

I've tried applying at officemax/depot and bestbuy, but they use those goddamn impossible to answer systems that rejects you if you failed. I had applied for car audio.

I just now thought though... What about a parts runner/parts desk for checker or something? :) i'd get to spend a lot of time in a ranger lol.

Hmm that's got me to thinking now though. The interview would be easy, I already know what to say. Basically it would be me working on the customer service end of my career....
