I applied in-person and 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.

Interview Question – What would you do if someone had a screaming baby?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None.

Difficult Interview

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Denver, CO

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – How did you previously handle an employee who was difficult to keep on task?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiating, you start at $9.50 and it is based on your performance and tests to advance.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Phoenix, AZ

I applied in-person and 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.

Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness?   Answer Question

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

Interview Details – I applied a week before they called me for an interview. Asked me if I had any visual tattoos or piercings and when I said no, they scheduled me for the next day. I waited like 20 minutes because they were interviewing a lot of people. The manager took me to a bench outside an auditorium and went through my application. Asked me basic questions and seemed really friendly and genuine. After the interview they hired me on the spot and gave me a date to come back for training.

Interview Question – What would you do if a guest came up to you and told you that the volume in an auditorium was too high?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation
