    Working at the AMC DIT

    Server (Current Employee)
    Bridgewater, NJ

    ProsThe flexibility of the work schedule is great, people are always eager to pick up or drop unwanted shifts

    ConsManagement doesn't really seem to care about individual servers and do little in the face of server feedback.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employee's and care about them not just yes them

    Why do we do this to ourselves?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Free movies
    -half off food (oh wait that's only when you are WORKING, darn)
    -Great on resume for people pursuing the film industry
    That's about all folks!

    ConsSheesh, where do I begin?

    -OVERWORKED; we literally work for every penny we make
    -Shifts not promised. Oh you found out you have 4 shifts this week and you're so stoked because this means more tips for you! Wrong. If AMC is slow; they cut. Usually when this happens, it gets busy right after. So guess what? Then we're understaffed & overworked.
    -We hire a crap load of servers (too many!) but not enough runners nor bussers yet we tip them out when most times we are running our own trays to guests
    -Management sucks. I almost cursed but I'm trying to keep this professional. Management does not care about employees. I am blessed to have an amazing GM. But management is truly so caught up in their feelings. Buncha sensitives! Takes everything personally. You can't voice your concerns without them trying to defend it.
    -Pay. We are based off of tips. If we are understaffed guess what this means? Our guests are unhappy. What happens if our guests are unhappy? We don't get tipped. Bingo! Thanks AMC

    Honestly... You may ask, well girl why are still working there? I don't even know! I love film so much and it's where my career is headed so that answers some of that. Plus I'm in school so it works. I have hope for AMC; I just think it's needs a complete makeover - meaning fire the bad. Even if that's the main BOSS. We need someone who cares about the employees working their butts off & who hires quality people. WE make smiles happen; but we can't if YOU can't make our smiles happen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementComplete 360; fix the whole darn team. Stop renovating theaters and invest in quality people to guide these theaters.

    Good Part Time Job for Students.

    Film Crew (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsFree movies, free popcorn and courtesy sized cup of soda or icee, flexible work schedule, discounts on hot foods, easy work, easy to make friends, nice managers, and nice supervisors.

    ConsLow pay, not enough hours, weird shift hours, unfair promotions, limit on amount of people that can go to free movies with you, and sometimes the managers don't care about issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not promote based off favorite employees because it is unfair for the workers that work there longer and work harder.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Believe in making guests smile, but they don't care about the quality of life of their crew.

    Hourly Manager (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsFriendly crew members who believe in making smiles happen.

    ConsCrazy hours management makes you work and they don't care if you have time to rest between shifts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf your crew has a quality of life they are better able to ensure guest happiness!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Free movies doesn't make up for this inept company.

    Restaurant Theatre Manager (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsNot a lot. I have many years as a manager from outside the company and feel like I am regressing.

    ConsThe hours and the shifts, the upper management, no true leadership, can't keep things working, toxic work enviroment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport the staff that guest facing they are the most important to the business not your politics and extreme lack of true leadership.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its been an experience, dont work or apply here

    Server (Current Employee)
    Lake Buena Vista, FL

    ProsCan work as many hours as wanted, semi flexible scheduling, works around school/vacations and thats about the only reason ive stayed here as long as I have. get a disney ID and occasional park tickets which is nice.

    ConsNO overtime, terrible supervisors and managers, supervisors are young and 18 years old, management not much better and none of them have prior restaurant experience, corporate messes up paychecks constantly, horrible tippers, just dont work here. its a nut house. always expected to run trays no matter how tired you are, or if you even have any tables. everyone else is beyond lazy. bussers dont do anything. and required tipshare towards bussers and bar is ridiculous. always looked down upon and treate as a child for the stupidest things. parking.

    Advice to Senior Managementtoo much to say, but you guys are clueless and have no idea how to run a real restaurant

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
