    Usher/Concessesions/Box Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cinemark.

    Interview Details

    Downloaded the application and dropped it off with a resume attached. Don't harass them over the phone. They will pick you based on your availability and your skill sets. Make sure to get detailed about your answers during the 1 on 1 interview. Yes or No answers aren't a good sign at all. Don't lie on application/resume because our management team can see through it quickly. They have no reservations for firing bad apples that pass the interview.
