    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AMC Entertainment.

    Interview Details

    Interview process consists of usually one face to face interview. If you are being promoted from within the company, the questions are general management/team experiences such as: Name a time you had to lead a difficult team, name a time when you disagreed with one of your supervisor's decisions, name a time you overcame a difficult problem, etc. They also tend to be questions such as "What is your biggest area for growth/weakest trait?" and "What can you contribute to the theatre?"

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AMC Entertainment in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    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

    Applied online then within a week got a phone call about attending an interview. The interview was fairly easy. It was one-on-one with the GM and lasted about 20 minutes. Asked questions such as what makes horrible customer service, describe a place with horrible customer service, what are my favorite retail/restaurant places and why.

    Interview Questions

    Usher, Cashier, Box Office Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call about a group interview a week or two later. Went in with about 10 other people. Interview was a little hard for an usher position in my opinion plus some people there seemed overqualified plus were college graduates (but it might be because the job was at a theater in Downtown Disneyland); they asked about what movies mean to you and why they are important, etc. They also asked alot about customer service because they have a good rep for customer service. Said they would call people later that day for one on one interviews, but I never got a call back.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AMC Entertainment in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call back two weeks later. There was a phone interview which had questions like " if you have any face piercings or tattoos, are you able to cover them" and your availability. Then there is a one on one interview with a manager where you are asked about your experience waiting in long lines or shopping at a dirty place. At the end you have to sell the AMC stub. It doesn't matter if you get stuff wrong while selling just as long as you are confident and make it sound like you know what you are talking about.
