    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview Details

    Differs from location to location. Under the previous GM, everyone would turn in applications, which are held for 90 days. Then, he would call everyone and give them a time. The interviews would take place in one day, and you would be in a group interview where you take some assessments and get to know the GM a bit. Now, under the new GM, you get a call for a time slot, and you are called back one by one for an individual interview. Previously it was with the GM himself, now I believe he has an assistant manager interviewing.

    Interview Questions
    • There isn't any surprise question to throw you off, but the most important thing we look for is your availability.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. You get paid minimum starting. However they may ask if you want Concession or Usher. It's your choice, but Usher is definitely the easier job.

    Usher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Bruno, CA

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Cinemark in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Depending on what you wrote as an experience on the application, the hiring manager will hire you on the spot. All she asked me was what did you do here and here, no scenario questions asked. Went through the details of what was required for the job, and completed the paper work within a day. Basically, if the manager looks you were in for a tacky job. Management lacks professionalism.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview Details

    2 interviews (really unnecessary to have more than one). Depending on who was hiring, it didn't even matter. They just hired who they like anyway. Semblance of professionalism in a place that lacks so much of it internally.

    Usher Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Cinemark in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    My application came with enthusiastic recommendations by four then-current Cinemark employees. I was granted an interview and handed the Cinemark employee handbook. I was to read the handbook to prepare for my interview. The handbook was a small pamphlet-looking book, and only had about 20 pages. I read it, and on interview day after the general getting to know you interview questions and asking if I was willing to work holidays, the manager asked me if I had read the handbook. I confidently said yes, she smiled, and said then congratulations you start next week.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview Details

    Downloaded the application and dropped it off with a resume attached. Don't harass them over the phone. They will pick you based on your availability and your skill sets. Make sure to get detailed about your answers during the 1 on 1 interview. Yes or No answers aren't a good sign at all. Don't lie on application/resume because our management team can see through it quickly. They have no reservations for firing bad apples that pass the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult interview question you will get are the following: what are your biggest weaknesses? What are your long term goals out side of work? What is your expectations of working here like?   Answer Question
