    Pros

    Free movies, saves a lot of money. Ability to do a lot of things while working, I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Low pay, not enough specificity in job description, no effort from upper management to help you grow. Very hard to move up. Have to have open availability and be ok when you don't get hours.

    Advice to Management

    Departmentalize and be specific about what you want managers to do. Invest in your employees, and you won't have problems getting them to like you.

  2. I worked in concessions as a concessions coordinator for about 2 years. It was a good learning experience overall.

    Pros

    Large company, lots of different fields to move around, and good overall learning experience.

    Cons

    Larger cooperation problems, Management was poor as well as very "clicky"

    Advice to Management

    Management could do a better job of recognizing and compensating hard workers.

  6. I worked for at a Cinemark Century 16 Theater for about a year as a part-tim usher/box office associate.

    I worked at Cinemark part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about this job was probably my coworkers- there were rarely any instances of inner conflict, and we all got along very well. My managers in particular were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the promotion rate from usher to management was pretty frequent. Free movies and popcorn were great, too.

    Cons

    The customers mostly. Lots of messy, entitled people, and of course the under 16 crowd who thought they were super clever trying to sneak into R-rated movies.
    Also, if you're consistently accurate with your till and cash-handling you pretty much get stuck on cashier/box office duty which is not as mobile as the usher work and more monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    There were some instances where new employees weren't properly trained, or given to other inexperienced workers to train, so maybe a bit more structure in that regard.

  7. Five years of employment

    Pros

    Great relationships with staff. Movie environment is great. Free movies.

    Cons

    I have been an assistant manager for the past 1 year and I haven't received a raise since. I make $10.25....many floor staff members with very little experience make nearly the same wage as me. To say Cinemark is cheap would be a gross understatement.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard and demand your raise.

    Pros

    Free movies for you and another person any time, free popcorn and drinks (ICEE/Soda), and 50% off concessions items.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Busy days can keep you on your feet and moving your whole shift - also expect to deal with some rude and difficult costumers.

    If you are 18 years or older, unless worked out with the scheduling manager, expect to close at times which can mean staying till 12 - 3AM.

    Advice to Management

    Allow tips and pay employees better.

    Pros

    Free movies, and half price on food before or after work. They are also very flexible with your schedule, and very understanding about needing some shifts covered.

    Cons

    The management there is terrible, some of the managers could work on their work ethics, especially with their attitude and they why they treat their employees.

    Advice to Management

    They could learn to appreciate their employees more, and give more opportunities to them...also more benefits.

  11. Meh
