    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harkins Theatre in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed after applying in person. I had an interview with two managers. They called me and offered me the job. I went back for training which lasted 1 day. The training was videos that you had to watch. They then trained me in person for 2 weeks to teach how to close the playcenter, check kids in, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harkins Theatre.

    Interview Details

    I filled out a physical application and turned it in. I called in to follow up but couldn't get through. I only got an interview when I found out the SM was a cousin of a lady I went to church with, who asked him to give me an interview and he was kind enough to oblige. The interview itself was very easy, took me upstairs to the conference room, I was out very soon after.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions, just wanted to make sure I understood the basic requirements of the job and then told me to come back for training a week later. Once you get an interview you pretty much have the job.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Harkins Theatre in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a thursday and was called for an interview the following thursday after a couple over the phone questions to receive eligibility and was asked basic questions to see more personality. I'm naturally spirited so I think that's why the interview process was much quicker and flowy.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harkins Theatre in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    To start off, the manager asked me to tell him about myself. After that, he explained to me how the interview would go from there and then immediately asked me what I knew about Harkins Theatres. From there he asked me to describe my previous position and if I had any experience in cash handling and inventory. Asked me to define "professionalism" and "integrity". Then he explained the positions, how the promotions work, and all the benefits. Then he asked if I had any questions, I asked him a few and the interview was over. It was about an hour long and he was very professional. We then set up the phone interview with the district manager and I left.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Harkins Theatre in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interviews consisted of an SM, SM and GM, and DM interview. There were a lot of questions involved, but I can't remember what they were. Basically, you need to know how to handle difficult customer/employee situations. If you don't mind the pay, then you'll be set with a job that you might like.
