    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Harkins Theatre (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harkins Theatre (Denver, CO) in July 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Harkins Theatre (Tempe, AZ) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The interview is all very simple with the average questions you'd expect from anywhere such as why you want to work here and what not. It is very informal and you're interviewed on a bench by not very professional.

    Negotiation

    none

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harkins Theatre in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied in person and met with a manager briefly the same day just to get my face/name out there. I was called about a week later and we set up an interview. The interview was extremely easy and laid back. It was with two assistant managers in their early 20s who were not intimidating. I was hired on the spot after my interview.
