Crew Member Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at AMC Entertainment (San Diego, CA) in October 2014.
I applied online about 3-4 months ago. I was called on Monday to schedule an interview, which took place on Thursday. I got there 20 minutes early and they gave me some info to read about cashier, concessionist, and usher. They also gave me info about the amc stubs card. Luckily I read up about it online bc the pamphlet they gave me didn't have all the info that is on the amc website. I definitely recommend researching it before you go in for the interview bc a big part of the interview is knowing all about the stubs program. Anyways my interview probably lasted about 10-15 minutes... It was very simple. I totally aced the interview and impressed the GM with my extra knowledge about stubs. I took out all my piercings and gauges and wore a button up shirt with light makeup and a ponytail to show off my face. You should look semi professional, like you care about the job but don't wear a tuxedo or anything like that. definitely hide tattoos and piercings if possible. Make good eye contact and SMILE. the gm interviewing me said the most important quality they look for is friendly and outgoing people. She (the GM) told me that she will be calling all the interviewees tonight at 6 o'clock pm and letting us know if we made it or not... That's 3 hours from now! I'm pretty sure I got the job but please pray for me. Xo tattoos and piercings if possible. up lLikr

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at AMC Entertainment in October 2014.
I applied online at their company's website and received a call from the hiring manager a couple of days later. On the phone she asked me if I had tattoos and if I could work during the holidays and told me about their uniform policy, etc. She scheduled an interview two days later. I didn't dress too professional but made myself look formal for the interview. I had an interview with two managers at the same time, it wasn't that bad but they were super friendly so I wasn't that nervous. Make sure to smile, laugh, and be open! Show your personality and make connections with them because that's what they are looking for. Personable people. Make sure to bring breath mints just in case because they want to hear you talk a lot. I recommend you to review their AMC stubs cards online because they will ask you to try and sell it as a roleplay. I got an offer and went for training the following weekend, lasted about 6 hours. There were about four-six other teens being trained, we all sat in a conference room, listened to a manager speak and review company policy's and rules. We shared some experience, and even role-played situations. Like how to react when having bad customer service and how to sell something, and discussed in groups about possible scenarios.
- 1. Why do you want to work at AMC theaters? I said because I love movies, helping people, and because AMC company is one of the top theaters in the nation with one of the best customer services, etc. 2. What is your best accomplishment? Since I'm still in High school, I said being a honor student. 3, Describe a time you had to wait in a long line, where was it and how did you deal with it? First I said starbucks in an attempt to make a connection and something we can agree on (conversations), but then I said Macy's. It wasn't bad because the environment was clean, and even though it was busy it wasn't too hectic. 4. What do you think ( said store) could have done to make the line-waiting shorter? Say COMMUNICATION and TEAMWORK, that's what they want to hear. Now the final part was a little hard, they give you a pamphlet about AMC stubs cards and will tell you to roleplay as an AMC employee to try to tell it to them. That's why is good to review it before your interview. It's basically talking about the benefits about signing up for a membership, This is how I said it.. "Would you be interested in signing up for our AMC stubs membership? There are a lot of great deals that can really benefit you, If you are someone who loves going to the movies often, Like me, then I guarantee that you will definitely love this... ( mention the benefits, upgrade on drinks and popcorn, $10 rewards for every $100 purchase ( think about inviting three people to the movies, you buy food and drinks and that would equal about $30-$40 including tickets, now multiply that by two or three (the times you visit the theater/ membership is good for a family of 4-5), and it only costs $12 dollars a year for the membership. BE PREPARED for them to decline your offer, you can be smooth and say something like: Okay, but hear me out, If you sign up now, you will never have to hear me offering you this AMC stubs membership again, and you will be getting a very good deal. You don't have to be perfect, just show them you are capable of interacting and able to sell a product. Other than that, they will ask about the days you are available to work and about your recent work history. Answer Question

I applied online – interviewed at AMC Entertainment in January 2014.
there were some pretty basic questions to the interview. a few examples were, describe a time when you went to a place that was dirty and how did that affect your view of it? the whole interview seemed to go very smoothly even when asked to sell the stubs card the interviewer seemed very pleased with all my answers then two weeks went by i called in and asked if they had made any hiring decisions they said they hadn't, but when i went to see a movie the next day i ran into a friend who worked there and they said the had already finished training the new Hirees.
- the most difficult part of the interview was probably selling the stubs card you have to study it hard or know about it ahead of time. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Ontario, CA).
I applied online and about a week or two later they called me in for a one on one interview. They try to do a mock sale with their AMC Stubs Reward program. So you may want to study its benefits (I was able to memorize them all on the spot) and come up with a sentence or two on selling it to a potential customer. I didn't know about this prior to the interview so I was a little nervous and I'm sure that they were able to tell. Speak clearly, be confident, and do a good job on the sale's pitch and I'm sure that you'll get the job

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at AMC Entertainment.
It was easy, they called me in after i filled out an online application. Then on the day of the interview while I was waiting they gave me this little small booklet that had the amc rewards information, they told me to read it but I didn't know that I had to memorized it. Just make sure to read it carefully because they will ask you questions about it with different scenarios and how to respond to ir.
- How would you conviced a customer if they already said no to the rewards card? Answer Question

The interview was at an office, they had about 5 questions they asked. They were not difficult questions, they know most people who apply are inexperienced so they ask questions about when in your life you have had to lead or act fast. They first call you on the phone to set up an interview - this took about two weeks.
