Job Description

Very Part time floor staff position open. No phone calls or walk-ins please.

This is a position that is a good fit for someone who has been in the work world for some time and has had hands-on managerial and supervisorial experience. This is not a seasonal position and not a good first job experience.  

Please take the time to read this post in its entirety before submitting your cover letter & resume. Thanks ahead for being thorough.


1) Must have prior experience as part of floor staff or supervisor in a the field of customer service.

No exceptions - please do not apply if you do not meet this requirement.

2) Experience in handling money & use of a touch screen 

3) Excellent team building skills. Ability to demonstrate a caring for the business as a whole is important. 

4) Experience handling ticketing of some sort or other organized skill sets involving dates, names & category identification.   

5) GREAT communication skills! By phone, email, text, and in written form. Cursive writing is a PLUS.

This floor staffing position pays minimum wage (Berkeley) of $15.59 per hour. There would be an increase if candidate passes the review of all skills to be considered to move to a management position. A typical shift (either matinee or evening) is often as short as 3 hours, or as much as 8, depending on both your availability and needs of the theatre. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday evening availability is especially desired at this point in time.

The candidate would be trained specifically to handle two of our different ticketing systems and deal directly with counter and box office sales. She or he would also be trained to handle all floor staff operations & duties which involve concession sales, cleaning of the lobby, bathroom checks, cleaning up the theatres after each screening is over, knowing answers to any phone inquiries or whom to direct the calls to, etc. These skills take approximately 5-6 shifts to learn and mini-tests are conducted to review the different aspects of the Floor Staffing position.

Being part of the entertainment industry means that our movie theatre is open every day all year round. While there are considerations regarding holiday times off, any candidate should consider the real possibility of being scheduled at some point over Thanksgiving, the last week in December and over New Years Eve.

Interviews taking place as of June 20th, 2019

Please email your resume w/ references attached. No phone calls & please do not drop off your resume at the theatre.

A love of the theatre and knowledge of film is an advantage, but not required. High customer service is the most important thing: cleanliness, good manners, quick thinking, compassionate, ability to move quickly...these are all important. The ability to move around quickly up-and-down stairs and seeing in low light is also something to consider. Ability to lift a 50 lb. bag is a must.

We look forward to seeing your resume AND cover letter! 

Seniors especially encouraged. This is a great part time position that can put a 'few extra dollars' in your pocket every month.

We realize that there are lots of positions available in the Berkeley area that pay the same minimum wage. We're looking for that extra *something* that a staffer has to offer that rises above the 'everyday' retail exchanges!
