    Usher/Concessesions/Box Office Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cinemark in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy. I printed/filled out the application then turned it into a manager. He noted that I had "great availability" and told me to wait for a call. Three days later the same manager called and we scheduled for an interview the next day. The interview itself was very laid-back. Afterwards, I was asked to sign to consent in a background check. I got a call 8 days later confirming that I got the job and asking me to fill out more paperwork. I start in a few days and I'm so excited! All of the managers I spoke with throughout the process were super nice/cool. Seems like a chill work environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cinemark (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online in January, got a call asking me to come in for a 1:1 interview in March. Interview was full of your standard "What if..." questions. After completing this interview, I got a call the same night asking me to come in for a second interview. Second interview was much easier, which was more of getting to know the other manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cinemark in December 2014.

    Interview

    I went online originally to fill out an application. The instructions online said to take the application to the location we were applying to (there was no online application available.) When I dropped off the application, the employee said that someone would be calling me within a week. Two weeks later, I got a call asking me to come in for an interview. The interview was very simple (tell me about yourself, do you think you can meet the job requirements, do you mind cleaning/breaking a sweat, can you fulfill dress code requirements, ect.), and took about 20 minutes. At the end, the managers told me that they would call me at the end of the day if I got a job. That evening, I received an offer, and was instructed to come in to fill out the final paperwork and make copies of my identification.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your definition of Customer Service?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was unable to negotiate. Actually, they have yet to tell me how much I am making. However, I have friends who work at this location and have told me that starting is minimum wage, so I am assuming that to be true.

    Usher/Concessesions/Box Office Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cinemark (San Bruno, CA).

    Interview

    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.
